Kazak’s Picks: November 2021

If music fans’ attentions were supposed to already be turning towards end-of-year reviews, nobody seemed to tell November’s release schedule. There’s a definite autumnal feeling to this month’s playlist, with a larger number of quieter and/or darker efforts. But there are still plenty of floorfillers and explosive moments for those looking for a bit more energy, too.

Any track that was released as a single or as part of an album, EP, or any other kind of musical project in November 2021 was eligible for inclusion for this month’s playlist (which is why you might see some tracks that first emerged in previous months).

WARNING: All tracks and their accompanying videos are completely uncensored. A number of them contain explicit language that is unsuitable for children, NSFW topics and images, discussions of potentially triggering subjects, and/or political commentary that may offend.
