BLuedot’s best of 2021
We’re thrilled to announce our top 40 for 2021… a selection of the best twenty books and twenty albums from the past year which have entertained and soundtracked another weird year.
In selecting our top picks, we’ve dug deep into the crates and far across the shelves for some of the year’s most vital sound, insightful lyricism, poetic memoirs and groundbreaking journalism. Our best albums of 2021 features highlights from some bluedot favourites past (and future!), with our top spot given to an act that so far haven’t played a note live. Meanwhile our best books of 2021, selected with our friends at Blackwell’s, celebrates world-beating scientific research, the world of psychedelics, the future of our understanding of gender and much, much more. Our top book of 2021 is quite simply one of the finest memoirs we’ve ever read – a stunning story of one man’s journey into his family story and deep into his own identity.
