Greet Death released two great singles this year, "I Hate Everything and "Your Love Is Alcohol," both of which found the punk/shoegaze band going in a softer, more acoustic guitar-oriented direction. With the year coming to a close, we asked the band what their favorite albums of 2021 were, and all four members answered separately... some more seriously than others. Here's what they said:

Logan Gaval (vocals, guitar):

Portrayal of Guilt - We are Always Alone
This is the best heavy record I’ve ever heard. It’s a nice blend of catchy songwriting and break shit riffs.

Wednesday - Twin Plagues
I like this music. I like the songs on this album.

Angels & Airwaves - Lifeforms
There’s a lot of unforgivable shit on here but as long as Tom DeLonge is still writing songs I’ll be here to listen to them. This record is a fun time if you’re like me and listen to mostly bad music.

Japanese Breakfast - Jubilee
I went to see them in Detroit and I got rockegnized like 3 times. I also got rockegnized at the county fair but Japanese Breakfast wasn’t there.

Spirit of the Beehive - Entertainment, Death
This is good for when you don’t have a headache but you want to feel like you do.

Another Michael - New Music and Big Pop
I like this record because the songs are really good and the recordings are fun to listen to. I’m a big guitar guy and all these songs have a guitar in it.

Jim Versluis (drums):

Lucid Express - Lucid Express
An absolute breeze of a dream pop album with consistent highlights throughout. Like diving into an endless pool. Do yourself a favor and take a swim.

Jackie Kalmink (bass):
Wolf Alice - Blue Weekend, Sam Evian - Time to Melt

Sam Boyhtari (vocals, guitar):
I listened to a lot of shitty music from 2010.
