Some Music From February 2022
I turned 37 this February. I didn’t listen to a lot of new music this month. I was so stressed out that I kind of stayed in familiar lanes. I checked out most of the new releases, but only a few things stuck.
Clear Capsule - Gravity Licker
February 1, Shoegaze
Clear Capsule is a wonderful LA based shoegaze band. Shoegaze is pure comfort food for me.
A Place to Bury Strangers - See Through You
February 4, Shoegaze
My favorite guitar pedal tech demo continues to produce great noise.
Black Country, New Road - Ants From up Here
February 4, Post-Punk
Right before this album came out, the lead singer, Isaac Wood, quit.
Hello everyone, I have bad news which is that I have been feeling sad and afraid too. And I have tried to make this not true but it is the kind of sad and afraid feeling that makes it hard to play guitar and sing at the same time.
It’s unfortunate that such a talented band would lose a key part of their sound on the verge of their album’s release, and I hope this helps Wood recover. I highly recommend their album, it’s one of the best albums to come out this year.
Tennyson - Rot
February 18, Electronica
Rot is such a strong, coherent album. It just whips right past you so you put it back on.
