Remember that most of these albums are recently released (and important to say that you always can take a look back at our previous week recommendations here, for the whole 2022 or 2021).


1- ParallelSelf-Titled Debut Ep – As for many recent releases, it was written predominantly during the pandemic; and that familiar sense of longing, anxiety and isolation looms large over the record; “a rainbow, captured in shades of gray,” as the band describe their sound. You can keep reading our review here.

2.- Pablo SuárezRetrospect presents its writer’s typical melancholy stamped all over this contemplative album. The minimalist composition is accompanied with a completely intimate sound, providing nostalgic melodies in piano and violin.  With classical elements such as sweeping strings and delicate pianos, the album is a personal journey narrated by melody. This one is a thing of beaty that you don’t want to miss out!!!

3.- Ophelia’s EyeHopeless World“   In their own words: “On our debut album, we dealt with a number of difficult situations, from suicide, misused trust, divisiveness, envy, greed and selfishness. All the songs are packed with energy, some with engaging melodic riffs and some with astute melancholy. We really want you to immerse into the songs and think when hearing this record”. You can read our review here.

4.- Soli Deo Gloria A New Dawn Debut Album. In their own words: “The album itself is somewhat a chronicle of our lives and our relationship the past few years. It deals with our hopes and dreams (Horoscope), our fears and struggles (Mind Tricks, Lotus), and using the short time we’re gifted on this planet to love others without judgment and leave it better than we found it (Vapors, The Love I Have, Arizona, Nervous Embrace)”.

5- Pastel MotelConfection  In their own words: “The album is 4 years in the making with plenty of drama laid into its foundation. Between multiple lineup changes, an album lost to power failure, another album abandoned, members changing instruments, and a worldwide pandemic, it’s a wonder that “Confection” was ever completed. But, perhaps, that’s just a testament to the songs that make up the group’s latest concept album.”

“We faced obstacle after obstacle trying to complete this record,” says Ryan. “This album just refused to die, and I think it’s stronger for it.”

6.-  Picky HippersFull Flavour Behaviour –   Debut Album that “jumps with heavy grooves, a hint of jazz and a little punk rock energy. Recorded at the band’s own Boatshed Studios in Kaikoura and mixed by Dallas Cosmas at Prototype Musique in Melbourne, Full Flavour Behavior brings together the band’s many influences and creates something truly unique.This makes Picky Hippers the new quintessential kiwi band to watch.”

7- JoshandaJelly Filled Donut – In frontman Adil’s own words: “I wrote it about my past relationships. It’s about all the ones that didn’t work out, but rather than looking back with regret, it’s with appreciation, longing, and love. It’s a celebration of the people who entered my life and made me better than I was before I met them. It’s a love letter to them, that despite everything I still hold them dear. Kind of a sappy reason for a record but I figured the band needed to take a break from our brooding stoner rock anthems and delved into a more personal, sometimes fun, and sometimes more somber approach”.

8.- Still MidnightSelf-Titled Debut Album  – A musical trip inspired by the ’70s, 80’s & 90’s Berlin, London & NYC, all combined into a smooth sonic cacophony written and recorded in the studio in Copenhagen, Denmark. A fine blend of electronica, drums, guitars, bass, and haunting tenor/baritone male vocals.

9.- Online Tropics is an experimental music producer from Utrecht, The Netherlands. “soft limits EP” is about the contrast between organic and artificial elements, like how nature is being pushed back by man, but also how drums interact with synths. It tries to find these limits, get inspired by them, but also be scared of them.

I hope not only you can enjoy these artists but also remember to support them, streaming and sharing their work that obviously you can find in the Playlist Less Than 1,000 Followers, Fresh Singles, Indie Only, Alterindie State of Mind, Female Rising Stars, 12 New Songs This Week, Sickest & Dopest, Hot Stuff Metal, Track Of The Day, and  Take It Easy.
