Those which touched me – 2022

30 Dec

Playing Piano

Those of you who have read me for a while will know I listen to a great deal of music. My tastes are broad, from rock to jazz, hip hop to blues, R&B to classical, opera to indie, and many genres in between. And I enjoy music from all over the world.

I listen to a lot of new albums, and these are my fifteen favourites from those released in 2022 that came to my attention. Each one, in its own way, excited, moved, touched, impressed and delighted me.

They are listed in the order I heard them. The three with asterisks are my favourites, with the Ezra Collective album definitely taking first spot.

Imarhan – Aboogi

Black Country, New Road – Ants from up There

Kojey Radical – Reasons to Smile

Rosalia – Motomami

*Kate Tempest – The Line is a Curve

Wet Leg – Wet Leg

Florence + The Machine – Dance Fever

Porridge Radio – Waterslide, Diving Board, Ladder to the Sky

Paulo Nutini – Last Night in the Bittersweet

*Gwenno – Tresor

Sam Fender – Seventeen Going Under

The Big Moon – Here is Everything

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Cool it Down

Dry Cleaning – Stumpwork

*Ezra Collective – Where I’m meant to be

If you ever get a chance to listen to any of them, I hope you enjoy.
