It's officially that time: year-end list season. UK mag Uncut is first out of the gate this year with their list of the 75 best albums of 2021. It's got tons of names that will probably soon be regulars on these lists (The Weather Station, Low, Nick Cave, Cassandra Jenkins, The War On Drugs, Lana Del Rey, Dry Cleaning, Sons of Kemet, Squid, black midi, Black Country New Road, and more), as well as some veteran classic rockers (David Crosby, Robert Plant, Lindsey Buckingham), veteran indie bands (Teenage Fanclub, Saint Etienne, Mogwai, Arab Strap, The Coral, The Hold Steady, My Morning Jacket), and probably some stuff you haven't heard before. Check out the full list below.

You can pick up vinyl copies of several albums on this list in the BV shop.
