Jackson Murray’s Top 10 albums of 2022

The king of Grunge – aka, Jackson Murray drags himself away from the pyramid of Ferrero Rocher to educate us on his top 10 albums of 2022 – let’s take a look!

10. Chat Pile – God’s Country

This has to be one of the most devastating albums released this year. It’s certainly one I have to be in the right mood for but rewarding all the same.

9. The Callous Daoboys – Celebrity Therapist

This album from the Atlanta-based hardcore band blends The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Chariot-style chaos with a pop sensibility not far away from Panic At The Disco.

Check out: Title Track

8. Soul Glo – Diaspora Problems

This is a furious hardcore that comes across like a modern-day Bad Brains, but one that goes to many different places.

Check out: Gold Chain Punk(whogonabeatmyass)

7. Matelotage – Mayday

This is the debut album from the San Diego band that play an accessible brand of noise rock. Spicy!

Check out: All Lies

6. Intechnicolour – Midnight Heavyweight

This second album from the melodic stoner UK-based band is a huge step up from their debut, Big Sleeper. Get on it!

Check out: Turn it Loose

5. Drug Church – Hygiene

This fourth album from the alt-rock-infused punk band continues the same path they set out on their previous album, Cheer.

Check out: Detective Lieutenant 

4. Down I Go – Aum Shinrikyo

No one quite sounds like Down I Go. They are a mix of hardcore, noise rock, jazzy horns and a 100 other ideas. Very hard to classify!

Check out: A Busy Morning In The Springtime

3. Lizzo – Special

This is probably the most out-of-the-ordinary thing I’ve ever put on these lists. Pure pop brilliance!

Check out: About Damn Time

2. Birds in Row – Gris Klein

This is the French trio’s third album and most accessible yet. This is like a noise rock version of Touch√© Amore! ¬†

Check out: Water wings

1. Spielbergs – Vestli

This second album from the band has an incredibly lo-fi production but still manages to come across as joyful and wide-eyed.

Check out: When They Come For Me
