Recommended Albums: February 2022

Only five albums this month. Sure there was loads more music, high profile stuff at that, but nothing grabbed me the way these next five albums did. I listened to a few other things that were pretty good, like Sally Shaprio and Carmen Villain, but yeah – these are the jams. Take a look, y’all.

Big Thief – New Dragon Warm Mountain I Believe In You [4AD]
Hitchhiking in an empty box car with a motley crew of migrants as it travels across a country whose foliage is regrowing after apocalypse.

Black Country, New Road – Ants From Up There [Ninja Tune]
A deep obsession builds within you over an AI avatar, housed in a server halfway across the world, and your friends try to bring you back to the real world.

caroline – caroline [Rough Trade]
Ancient suits of armor stand organized in formation atop a steep, ocean-facing cliff, catching fierce sunbeams through post-storm clouds as waves heartily crash below.

Kill Alters – Armed to the Teeth L.M.O.M.M. [Hausu Mountain]
A stuffed animal from childhood with a built-in voice chip is trying to kill you while it plays choppy recordings of your child self crying and screaming.

Raum – Daughter [Yellow Electric]
Scuba diving in your old neighborhood, now submerged under 100 feet of water.
