The staff at Balcony Radio are some brave souls . . . they dug through the detritus of the last 12 months of recorded music to find some actual good tunes. Putting together the Best of 2021 is a tough job — but, dammit, someone had to do it. So, let’s say hello to 2022 by hitting play and checking out a couple dozen socially-distant gems released during the 365 day drag called 2021.
2020 is . . . over. Finally. Geez, right? Even though it was a tough 365 days, there was still music. Put your mask on and join your pals at BalconyRadio for our annual “Best of the Year” mixtape. We’ve got two dozen of the best rock, pop, hip and hop and country tracks released during a time we’d probably all like to forget. The year might have been a dumpster fire, but the soundtrack to everything being terrible isn’t so bad . . . Stay healthy and six feet apart, see you in 2021.
Music is there to help during times of strife. It’s also there to document them. This week, we’re putting together the best protest music we could find. Sit in with Balcony Radio as we pair the First Amendment with a couple dozen of the best songs that raise voices, fists, anger, frustration, hope, and everything in-between. Power to the people. The people have the power.
