Tough On Fridays, Maria Lane, Maybe Human, and more…

November 26th, 2022.

It’s great to have you here, the year is coming to an end three more weeks talking about new releases after that things slow down for another 2 or 3 weeks, but we don’t need to worry about that, let’s talk about my pick for album of the week that belongs to “The Encore You Didn’t Ask For” by Tough On Fridays. The album was released by Archangel Records (of Sydney, AU) and it’s a must for you this weekend in case you haven’t listen to it yet.

Also, during this upcoming week more of the Top 100 Songs 2022 that I hope you’re enjoying as much as I do. You can check the previous articles (100-7675-51, 50-40).

Finally, this is week 47 for the round up 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to. I want to say thank you for your constant support to these artists that we presented here and to the blog, I really appreciate all you do for all of us, so, keep going my friends. You have more than enough to pick the ones you enjoy the most, those who reach your heart and soul, I’m only asking you to give them the chance, listen to their work, listen to their art, I’m sure the magic will happen.

Most of these albums are recently released (and important to say that you always can take a look back at our previous week recommendations Guillian Stone, Catherine Elms, Lupis, and more…, for the whole 2022 or 2021).



1.- Tough On FridaysThe Encore You Didn’t Ask For” It is melodic enough to be pleasing to a top 40 audience, yet it doesn’t stray away from rocking with edgier and grittier guitar tones. To top it off, it’s also moving and lyrically deep. It pulls on those heart strings like Emo. There you go, I’ve given my thanks. Now let’s talk perhaps maybe some Vinyl for the stocking? Hint, hint…Please? Last minute Christmas wish. I hope Santa is a subscriber. You can read our review here.

2.- Heartache, depression, wobbly mental health. Sadness, longing for love, grief. There is no-one around, who doesn’t have at least one of those feelings following them around. “Maybe I’ll Feel Better” is a phrase of comfort and solace putting hope for lighter days in the future. It’s also the title for the new release Maria Lane teased us about last time when her single “Haunting” was dropped. ¡That’s right, this is her debut EP! You can read our review here.

3.- The L.A. based, sci-fi artist Mabye Human. He has composed an experimental, post-rock musical odyssey based on and inspired by the original “Planet of the Ape” films entitled, “Ape Law.” You can read our review here.

4.- In his much-anticipated debut EP A World of So Much Hate, Australia’s N4November (or simply Alex) blesses us with three new songs that compliment his three previous singles (“Dear Friend“, “Constant Reminder” and “Mistakes and Heartbreak“) beautifully. Fusing swiftian lyrics and melodies with fuzzy guitars and just the right amount of synths, N4November’s EP A World of So Much Hate sounds refreshing, nostalgic and ready for the floor – at a party nearby or just your very own bedroom floor. You can read our review here.

5.- This is a power metal album by Inner Urge with hints of heavy and prog metal that is lead by powerful lead guitar and vocals. Listen now “Consume and Waste

6.- The Nocturnal Animals in their own words “We are a young Pop-Folk duo based in both Oxford and Paris”. Coming from the UK electro-pop scene Maria met Felix through his pop-folk-influenced work on social media two years ago, and soon they met and began putting together a project called The Nocturnal Animals.

             7.- Icelandic dark rock/post punk act Daníel Hjálmtýsson, releases its debut album Labyrinthia,

8- Perro Manteca in their own words: “With exciting instrumentals and innovative vocal effects, we wanted to deliver a youthful suburban love story over the course of the album. It’s short, digestible, and a very honest glimpse of who we used to be (and where we’ll be building from moving forward).” Listen now to “…And so we move”

9.- Mono No Aware (MNA) is the 16th conceptual release under solo project, Culak. Instrumentally, this 11-track Midwest emo/indie rock album incorporates trumpet, orchestral strings, and piano in addition to traditional rock instruments.

Worth to check also the brand-new album “Blood Rush, Tempest Oceans” by Homesickness.
