2023 Jan – April : “Whole time I didn’t know I needed you”

2023 is starting off with wonderful new tunes to wash away the forgettable year of music we had in 22.

Already have some contenders for albums of the year this early.

New Pornographers are back, but so far they are following the same pattern of the last few albums of having some gems surrounded by blasé tracks.

The new Liturgy has already stunned me for repeat listens.

The new Caroline Palochek album is already a top album of the year.

Not one but two albums from Skrillex. Quite different with 1 being well worth the listen.

There isn’t a bad track from the new Japanese House.

I’ve been a John Vanderslice fan since ’99 and throughout his “424” album phase. It’s been awhile that his music has caught my attention but this CRYSTALS album has been quite unique and abstract in all the right ways.

Slowthai is back with some incredible tracks.   

Initial tracks from the JPEGMAFIA & Danny Brown prove promising.

Ooooo new Junip? Please let it be so.

It has been almost 10 years since we’ve gotten a new Blonde Redhead album. Single sounds unmistakably like their old selves, so I’m eager to hear the rest from their 10th release.

New Nation of Language isn’t hitting as hard as their previous material but I’ll take it.

Absolutely loving the new Indigo De Souza
