Hello all, and Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. I’ve been so buried in life issues and work deadlines that I haven’t found the time to post here. I think around two months (has it?!) have passed since I did a mixtape and there’s so much good music that I’m at a loss re what to feature. So, I decided to start by looking at singles from 2022 albums that I absolutely adore (and some that I’m anticipating)!
Shadow In The Frame — Daniel Rossen
I started listening to this album today. I’ve been hankering for a new Grizzly Bear album for oh so long but this beauty from co-frontman Daniel Rossen more than makes up for it. The songs are like a long, warm welcome-home hug and I just want to curl up in the sounds. Here’s the latest video release.
Kiss Me (I Loved You) — Father John Misty
This has to be my favourite song from his latest album which I’ve listened to, oh-so-many times. Because FJM albums are always more than partially autobiographical, a whole lot of delicious speculation abounds with each track!
Fever — Alduous Harding
This has got to be one of my most-played albums in 2022. So good. I can never get enough of Harding’s voice!
The Lightning II — Arcade Fire
Okay, this album isn’t out yet but isn’t the new single amazing? I’m both excited for the new album and sad, knowing it’s Will Butler’s last outing with the band…
Other 2022 albums I’m looking forward to: Warpaint, Caroline Polachek, The Smile, and it looks like maybe something solo from Thom Yorke?!
Here’s something new from Warpaint. I squealed when I heard it! Yes, I turn 47 this year. What of it? I shall never have any chill when it comes to the bands I love.
