2022

We continue our list of best albums in 2022 and reveal the best albums. All top five records are extremely catchy and favor hooks to pretention. Gyasi gets an LP vinyl release for the first time on Bomp label, known for its catchiness through out the history of rock’n’roll. Vitus Mataré and John Rosewall continue with Petrified Max project and keep cranking high quality music from year to year. Joey Rubbish of Chicago’s Rubs leaves no filler on his hook laden album Dust. Alicja Trout gets together with Sweet Knives and delivers a jewel of an album with a good mix of guitars, bubblegum and synthesizers. But the most complete album this year is in my opinion brought to us by the New Zealand outfit Best Bets. On An Unhistoric Night is a fun record without much pretention, but a fantastic flow that would likely make it a classic in years to come. The rest of the list is pretty great as well and features 3rd Secret, Aoife O’Donovan, Harlan T. Bobo, Jack Broadbent, The Americans, Ghost Woman, Tony Molina, Gentleman Jesse and multiple entries by David Nance. Check it out!
