Oh, 2022. This year is continuing a trend of “things couldn’t possibly get even worse right?”. So while I can’t fix buckling institutions and escalation of world conflict between the major powers, I can at least recommend some music that has been helping keep myself sane for the year so far. These aren’t in any particular order as trying to rank these is a fruitless task. These all give me great enjoyment across a variety of genres and emotions. My hope is that anyone looking at this list can come away with at least one project they can connect with, reflect on, or even just shut your brain off to.
