HEAVY ROTATION – Top 11 (Alphabetical)
Arctic Monkeys – The Car
Hazy, soothing, yet somehow urgent and compelling. I love their progression.
Binker & Moses – Feeding the Machine
Haunting, weaving, urgent, textured… just my words, you decide. Replaced Comet is Coming in rotation
caroline – caroline
This had to grow on me but once it did it became one of my favs.
Fontaines DC – Skinty Fia
This band keeps exceeding my expectations and evolving.
Horace Andy – Midnight Rocker
Unexpected late career masterpiece from a legend.
Lucrecia Dalt – ¡AY!
Like listening to a really smart film?!
Midnight Oil – Resist
Final tour deserved an amazing, timely ‘classic’ Oils album and they delivered.
Nilüfer Yanya – Painless
Early 2022 arrival and I was hooked immediately. You need to hear this though, you likely already have.
Wet Leg – Wet Leg
There were many fantastic records that had similar vibe this year (Momma, Muna, Let’s Eat Grandma) but this was the one. Needed this energy to recharge and maintain.
Wilco – Cruel Country
This album was inevitable but who knew it would be this good!?
Yard Act – The Overload
Underappreciated, difficult to classify – post-punk? Lyrically dense, catchy, quirky and… comforting?
