> More of the Best Albums of 2022

This year is already off to a great start on the new music front! We already made note of killer records from Beach House, Ghost, Hurray For The Riff Raff, and others that will surely be on people’s Best of 2022 list. Here’s another update on the other 2022 records you need to listen to (and that you can pair with this list).

8. Daniel Rossen - ‘You Belong There’

8. Daniel Rossen - ‘You Belong There’

This recent addition to the great slate of 2022 releases comes as the solo debut from the lead singer/songwriter of Grizzly Bear, and his dense, arty folk side has never sounded more prominent or flesh-out.

7. Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul - ‘Topical Dancer’

7. Charlotte Adigéry & Bolis Pupul - ‘Topical Dancer’

This lesser-known record encompasses a range of buoyant electronic music, including house, electropop, minimal wave, and the euro-disco subgenre known as EBM (electronic body music).

6. Spoon - ‘Lucifer On The Sofa’

6. Spoon - ‘Lucifer On The Sofa’

For a record that really rocks, Spoon’s new album does just that with an added layer of emotional depth and reflection.

5. Kae Tempest - ‘The Line Is A Curve’

5. Kae Tempest - ‘The Line Is A Curve’

Kae Tempest’s spoken-word synth-tinged hip-hop has expert wordplay and surprisingly accessible songs from a typically complex artist.

4. Ibibio Sound Machine - ‘Electricity’

4. Ibibio Sound Machine - ‘Electricity’

Afrobeat music with a dance-influenced funk rhythm combines for the most immersive and transportive Ibibio Sound Machine record to date.

3. Wet Leg - ‘Wet Leg’

3. Wet Leg - ‘Wet Leg’

Wet Leg is the best debut album of the year so far! This Isle of Wight duo’s indie post-punk and deadpan delivery hits all the dynamic points for a commercial peak to this revived genre.

2. Denzel Curry - ‘Melt My Eyez See Your Future’

2. Denzel Curry - ‘Melt My Eyez See Your Future’

This top-notch 2022 rap album finds Denzel Curry once again revolutionizing his sound, and on Melt My Eyez, he demonstrates his most involved compositional creative process yet.

1. Rosalía - ‘MOTOMAMI’

1. Rosalía - ‘MOTOMAMI’

MOTOMAMI is an instantly successful collision of Latin and cumbia beats with modern pop, but her restless experimental electronic side never quiets either. Rosalía’s triumphant human portrait of the angular and accessible officially cements her as a world-class artist and star, simultaneously adding up to be the new best record of 2022.

Every album featured is available on streaming, and don’t forget about these other 2022 records you might have missed earlier this year!
