Best Music 2022

I don’t have much to say this year, but I think it’s good to be consistent, so here are 50 songs and a few albums that meant something to me this year.

One note I want to make is that after years of being a near-complete stickler for “year of release” over “year of impact,” I must admit that the increased number of releases & labyrinthine path to success has me veering to the latter–at least when it comes to non-established artists.
