November 04th, 2022.
Welcome back November and also you as well of course, it’s always great to have you here, I hope you’re ready to go with this album of the week a completely turnaround from last week powerful and noise pick, this one is also a thing of beauty but more in the easy listening side of the spectrum, a lovely album that I hope you enjoy as much as I do, I have this fantastic artist almost a year ago in the playlist Different Kind Of Christmas, and now Anita Eccleston, is back with “Gala Gardens” her brand-new album that if you feel like it can support her via Bandcamp buying it.
This week I’m not going to suggest you to go and visit one particular category or playlist that I have on the website or my Spotify profile, I can let you know that if everything goes well I should be posting my first article from the series Top 100 Songs 2022 soon, I know last year I started at the beginning of October with the Top 100 Songs 2021 but time is not helping so I’ll have to go with a different format, I think a 25 picks is going to be the first 2 articles and I’ll see from there.
Let’s move on with this Week 44 for the round up 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to. As always, my friendly reminder so you don’t forget to support these artists, please. Only the ones that you feel in your heart and soul, all of them have something to say to you, you only need to gives them the chance to do it, remember that everything counts, I’m sure they’re going to appreciate it every little thing that you can do.
Most of these albums are recently released (and important to say that you always can take a look back at our previous week recommendations Rival Karma, Blueprint Tokyo, Painting By Numbers, and more…, for the whole 2022 or 2021).

1.- Anita Eccleston takes us through such adventure with her newest album Gala Gardens: an instrumental jazz album that aims to counter the often-chaotic reality we live in. She builds different soundscapes that resemble cities, gardens and the night, in which we find a moment, just a little moment, for us to relax a little; just to take a breath of fresh air. You can read our review here.

4.- Rarely do we encounter an artist that is able to transit and explore different states of mind in a deep, emotional and original way.

You can read our review here.
5.- The Outside Kids This record is the happy-go-lucky nostalgia of immature pop-punk with a socially conscious edge, exploring mental health, personal relationships, growth and setbacks through gritty lyrics, pop-punk sensibilities, and heavier sounds. Listen now Dirty Faces
6.- Stupid Future is a 3-piece indie/grunge/rock band from Knoxville, TN. In their own words “Our debut album contains all originals, influenced by 90s college rock, DIY punk, and garage rock. Recorded by us in our basement in one day, it’s a truly homemade album.”
7.- “Wasted Melodies“, the sophomore EP from Tom Tippin, is a sonically powerful, vividly conversational, and image-laden journey of a young adult ready to take on the world and unexpectedly having to face the realities of an uncertain present and future ,while weaving threads of the universal feelings of love, faith and personal introspection.
8- With their brand-new EP “Year Zero“, the pop punk trio manifests their sound between emotional, harmony-laden choruses and driving, dynamic instrumentations. Alongside grooves that remind of the young Travis Baker and detailed guitar arrangements á la State Champs, sophisticated rhythmic phrasing of the vocals define the musical core of Friend’s Don’t Lie: “Finest Pop, Modern Punk”.
9.- The SinicTones are a Bristol UK based power trio with fuzz-riffed guitars, driving ear-candy bass lines, catchy choruses and a seductive live performance. In their own words “We are the originators of Psycho Surf Noir, combining frantic surf drums with classic spy beat guitar riffs and Film Noir, B-Movie, Femme Fatale and Kink vocal themes.” Listen now FEMME FATALE
