Best Music of 2022 - Part 3

I usually wrap up this list on New Year's Eve. This year, I actually tried to write this post on Christmas Eve, but then I got too busy and was traveling over the holidays. So, here I am finalizing this thing a couple days into the New Year.

As always, thanks for reading and Happy New Year!

5. Bonny Light Horseman - Rolling Golden Holy

My top two candidates for show of the year were Dirty Deeds (an AC/DC cover band) at the Breakaway in Danvers and Bonny Light Horseman at the Sinclair in Cambridge. The latter was an amazing show, and probably worthy of the honor, but the Dirty Deeds show was Little Chuck's first and he met the lead singer and lead guitarist.

4. American Aquarium - Chicamacomico

3. Pedro the Lion - Havasu

2. Cloud Cult - Metamorphosis

Cloud Cult's fifth top ten album ties them with The National, Wilco and Drive-By Truckers for the most in the history of this list. 

1. Anais Mitchell - Anais Mitchell

Anais Mitchell (also a member of Bonny Light Horseman) becomes the fifth person to make the top ten twice in the same year, and the first since Jay Bennett in 2002.
