Best of 2021 Spotify Playlist - Indie, Rock, Pop Music

Best of 2021 Spotify Indie Music Playlist

What year is it again? Oh right! 2021! And believe it or not, I curated more songs into my “Best Of The Year” music playlist than ever before. Perhaps there were some pent up songs, pent up feelings, or I was just really was ready for some music. Who knows? The result is nearly 675 songs worth of 2021’s best – including indie, rock, alternative, pop, R&B and extra doses of local Denver bands.

You can listen directly below, but Spotify will only display the first 100 songs. If you click this link and heart the playlist, it will save it into your own list of playlists. Also, since my Best of 2021 is so big this year, I have included some of my favorite albums below too! Hope you enjoy. Cheers to a wonderful 2022.

My Favorite Albums of 2021

One of things I love about Spotify is music discovery. It’s getting better and better at suggesting music to me, as well as letting me search around and find things I like. Perhaps that is why my playlists are getting bigger. I wanted to also point out a few standout albums for me… the ones I listened to on repeat during a very difficult year. And it’s no small feat these days to release a full album – so again – thanks musicians!
