Records of the Year: 2022

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The end of the year is coming – and with it music nerds, magazines and blogs alike drop their „Records of the Year“ lists. I personally listened to a lot of new music this year. Inspired by a couple of RateYourMusic users I focussed on new releases and discovered a whole bunch of sub-genres I hadn’t delved into that much before.

I believe my list features a few albums most people would consider for their list of 2022 – but a few hidden gems as well
