Indie rock is an ever-evolving genre spanning bedroom recordings and Jack Antonoff-produced powerhouses. Some of these albums could easily find a home on other lists—pop, punk, or perhaps folk—but they also all fit here, under the indie rock umbrella. The album often resembles a reversion to her sparser early work and away from the cavernous jolts of her more recent output.

New Indie Albums 2021
Between the Covid pandemic, Trump, police racism and violence, and continuing environmental disasters, there have been so many dark things going on that its hard to discuss or digest music at all. With that in mind, we have listed our favorite releases of the year so far. The albums are unranked, and honestly they are all worth your time. Also we wanted to say that it is a constant struggle to survive as an independent music site these days, and we are so thankful for all our donors and supporters that keep us going. Without further ado, here is our list of the Best Records of so far:. Addy — Eclipse. But Eclipse is adorned with lo-fi beats, evocative violins, echoing electric guitars and more; elements that bring complexity and build a vivid world. These are the ways that Addy seems to be unearthing a low-key gem in real time. Eclipse is a record to kick back and close your eyes to, something worth sinking into over and over again. But even then, AJJ was feeling the manic despair of someone who knows the other shoe is about to drop.
Album Releases by Genre
Many of us lost jobs, some of us lost loved ones, and all of us lost a lot of time spent with each other, and that sucks. It sucks! I think we can say that one more time, IT. And yet, despite all that, The Alternative has managed to continue to grow, as a staff, as a site, and as a community of music fans! This year we were able to pay our contributors for the first time and did so with a fair pay structure that gives each contributor a proportional share of our revenue based on their work each month. Many of our Patreon supporters were forced to limit their donations due to difficulties, but new supporters stepped up to fill the gap and kept us going.
