IM's Best of 2022
Dec 15, 2022
Indispensable Music's first full year has been an exciting one. From collaborations with Rosie G. from playMYmusic.FM and discovering incredible new music from artists culled from a variety of genres, it's great to look back, listen, and buy! We're looking forward to what the new year has to offer.
With the end of the year approaching, IM offers our obligatory Best Of lists.
Partnering with playMYmusic.FM, IM mines new releases each week to find one both editors are excited to showcase. Our top ten choices didn't entirely match, but Fantastic Negrito and Making Movies made both lists. Here are the rest of IM's Best of New Music Monday 2022. If you're curious how the favorites diverged, take a look at Rosie G.'s picks here.
For the rest of the new releases IM shined our spotlight on, check out the best of Monthly Music Picks too. There are some real gems on here, with funk, punk, rock, soul, ambient, country, doom metal, and more!
It's hard to choose ONE song to feature here, but after careful consideration, the choice must be the incredible rendition of Green Day's "Hitchin' a Ride" by Amythyst Kiah. It's incredibly haunting.
Runners up include King Buffalo's "Firmament" (seriously, it's simply amazing) and Tami Neilson's "Beyond the Stars." It's a beautiful tear-jerker.
