Deluxe Magazine - Issue 21
Albums, compilations, reissues and books from a year united in adversity.
Welcome to Deluxe Issue 21, our annual assessment of the last 12 months of - mostly - new music. Whereas we normally focus on the bricks, the mortar, the walls, the racks, the diligent and sonically enlightened folks that tend the till and all of the weird and wonderful creatures that shop there - this issue of Deluxe is all about the music, man. I don’t think that anyone would argue that 2020 has so far been a real sonofabitch, but you know what, reading through this top 100 albums list, it has at the very least sounded fantastic.
So for your consideration, one hundred albums (plus choice reissues, books and compilations) released between January and late October of this year that we have loved playing.
Hope you do too.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
