Vanguard Online Chart, 2021

Number One

What has Thao Nguyen done here? Something mesmerising. Folky, so intimate it hurts, American.

Number Two

Arguably, the runaway success of Eurovision, even if it didn’t win. It was all about power and speed, and taking it to the next level, again and again.

Number Three

Hot Chip’s melancholy dub epic, with Kraftwerk flourishes.

Its called ‘Losing My Head’

Es ist sehr gut.

Listen on Bandcamp.

Number Four

Recalling Orbital, Aphex and Autechre, George Fitzgerald’s Ultraviolet is a bouncy electronic number.

Number Five

A flipping awesome piece of EMO Post-Rock. Have I just created a new genre?
