Things ive heard in 2022 pt.2

number 1 being most recent
1the chinese stars
listen to your left brain

4 - gives me mid 2000s indie vibes with that rhode island noise rock weewoo guitar tone. slightly abrasive but really quite fun. features the Arab on Radar/Doomsday student vocalist. for fans of skin graft records
2johnny booth
firsthand accounts

3 - was sorta unimpressed with the vocals on this, found them really monotonous and bland. riffs and grooves were cool tho but nothing special. looking forward to their next lp
dude ranch

3 - Dammit is like the one pop-punk track i will carry on listening to

4 - really enjoying trip-hop recently so going to be getting more into it. great 'vibes' on this
5living sacrifice
the hammering process

3 - metalcore/nu metal/mainstream metal from the early 2000s. riffs hard but all sort of blends together unfortunately. deffo gonna give their discography more of a chance as ive heard good things
midwest straight edge

3 - this really was midwest straight edge
7dance gavin dance
jackpot juicer

2 - slow trajectory into mediocrity continues, hopefully gaptooth fucks off and Secret band becomes a thing again

4 - indie/alt rock with a very 90s feel, reminds me of husker du or pavement sometimes. writing a review for it but it will never get finished so uhhh shame on me
9the kinks
The Village Green Preservation Society

4.5 - 'we are the sherlock holmes, english speaking vernacular' and 'god little shops, china cups and virginity' both in the same track? lyrical genius
an evil heat

16the prodigy

4 - id heard most of this already just from living in the uk but yeah the b sides are decent. i like the beats. shame about Keith.
in utero

4.5 - all apologies is easily one of my fav tracks ive discovered this year. also, i used to hate nirvana because of kurts voice, but now i love nirvana because of kurts voice? nirvana good????
