We have entered the last month of 2022 (and the first month of counting releases towards our Best of 2023). So what kind of music are we ending the year with? No jingle bells, that’s for sure.
We’ve got the new double album called Double Album from troublemaking punks NOFX. We’ve got the latest releases of retro-styled pop from Canadian singer Sammy Volkov, folk rock from Stephen Kellogg, and the final album from Sarchasm. We’ve got a great EP of dark, emotional Britpop from Adult Leisure (read our review of it here).
And if you want something that’s the complete opposite of holiday carols, you can listen to Metallica‘s brand new single (shared with an announcement of their new album dropping next year). After just releasing a new album, Nas has dropped a new track with 21 Savage, while Anti-Flag release another new song in anticipation of their new album coming out next year. Poptropicaslutz! have teamed with label mates Magnolia Park for a new jam, and The Go! Team continue their collaborative mood with a new single featuring Nitty Scott.
Artists making a return to the list include Grabbitz, We Are Scientists, The Milk Carton Kids, Imogen Clark, Peach Tree Rascals, Joy Oladokun, Futuristic and Fuzzle. And to spread the love to new and rising acts, some artists we’ve chosen for the list for the first time this week are Darren Jessee, Emei, Marie Dahlstrom, Life in Mono, Beyond the Lamplight, Unarmed, Marie Middlefield, Danny Kuttner, Annika Rose and Sophia Marie.
