Week #27: The "Best albums of 2022 so far" edition

TL;DR: I'm running a weekly newsletter with 5 songs and a short description, and a matching Spotify playlist if you want to subscribe.

For the non-Spotify readers, there is a Youtube link for each of the songs on the cover.

Week 27

Hello everyone!

Happy month of July, everyone (sunny and boiling here in Europe).

We are halfway through the weekly playlist marathon, and I thought I would take this week's playlist selection for digging through albums released in 2022 that I may have missed so far.

I hope everyone is having a lovely summer so far.
Horace Andy - Safe From Harm

The latest album of the dub pioneer over the last 50 years. Here with a personal rendering of Massive Attack's classic.
Alexisonfire - World Stops Turning

The return (with style) of the Canadian post-hardcore (ex) cool kids, after 13 years of silence.
HEALTH - Isn't Everyone (feat. Nine Inch Nails)

A collaboration album from the industrial-rave-dance-punk, with the finest of the hip-hop, electronic and metal scene. This particular song, featuring Nine Inch Nails, sets the tone for the album with a bleak / grim sound and vocals.
Melt Yourself Down - Pray For Me I Don't Fit In

Another record I discovered while digging reviews for this newsletter. A frantic melting polt of punk-jazz with a high dose of world music influences, such as afro-jazz and Latin American beats. 
Kendrick Lamar - Mother I Sober (ft Beth Gibbons)

A very moving closing track of another masterpiece from perhaps one of the most proeminent music artist of the decade. (Mea culpa, it took me until this week to listen to this album).
Until the next time, Godspeed!
