December 1 is often a big day for year-end lists and 2021 is no exception. In addition to NPR's list and The Quietus' list (and Spotify Wrapped), today also brought Gorilla vs Bear's list. GvsB's list is always one of the most interesting and unique lists of the year, heavy on music in the electronic/electronic pop realm, but also including lots of indie rock, rap, folk, pop, and more that all make sense within Gorilla vs Bear's world. Check out the full list below.
