Favourite non-HH album of 2022


Recommended Posts

Anyone out there with tastes that expand outside typical HH fare, whether into the pop, urban or extreme fields etc.

What is your favourite album that doesn't appear in Heavy Harmonies in 2022?

If synthwave and “alternate rock” / post-hardcore stuff are non-HH I think my current entire top 10 falls into this category.

Stand Atlantic - F.E.A.R. (female led pop-punk with several bangers)

Molly Tuttle – Crooked Tree (she's classed as bluegrass. "noted for her flatpicking, clawhammer, and crosspicking guitar prowess". I saw a comment once that stuck with me : "Molly Tuttle's fingers move so quickly, she could pick your pocket without breaking stride."

Still giving my 2022 list time to marinate (I'll report back at the end of the year) but there have not been many standouts in Eric3 land. 

This one, however...

Lumenette - All Around My Head

Is fucking awesome. Beautiful shoegaze.
