Even though 2021 has been/remained pretty awful, a wealth of great music was still made and released in our fair city this year. Though there’s no shortage of Best Of lists that help recognize the recorded efforts of Milwaukee musicians, Silver City Studios recently gave listeners another way to brush up on some of 2021’s best local music. This morning, the recording studio released the Silver City Sampler 2021, which features an eclectic blend of 14 tracks Silver City worked on this year.

Whether you’re reminding yourself how good the Dinner Set Gang singles are, hearing previously unreleased material from Vanity Plates and Community Centaur, listening to the audio from the studio’s great “No Wake” series, or finally getting around to discovering just how great Jermaine Event is, the digital sampler—which can be streamed on Soundcloud—is a great refresher course for the abundance of enjoyable audio that came out of Milwaukee (and beyond) this year.

As we, once again, acknowledge the work of Milwaukee musicians, it’s also a great time to remind readers how important places like Silver City Studios (as well as Mystery Room Mastering, Howl Street Recordings, and many other Milwaukee area recording/mastering studios) are in helping to bring excellent material to the next level. Revisit some of Silver City’s finest recorded material of 2021 by streaming the sampler below.
