Monthly Music Recap (November 2022)
November 2022's recap for my favorite singles and projects.
Welcome back to the monthly recap of my top singles and projects. I understand that not everyone has the time to go through weekly new music releases, so this recap is a way for me to provide a summary of new music that everyone should check out.
I’m listing my top singles and projects each month in no particular order (other than alphabetical), so check out at the end of each month or the beginning of the new month for a monthly recap. Each month might differ in terms of number of entries, as this will depend on the number of new releases, which can vary from month to month. The number this month is 20 (twenty).
I’m still experimenting with the features offered on Substack, so do bear with me if you see some formatting changes in this newsletter. There are some differences after all!
We’re almost at the end of the year! This month’s favorites include some of familiar faces (Ava Max, Duncan Laurence, Tiësto) as well as some new ones (Caroline & Claude, LEX, v!ncent), with styles ranging from pop to some R&B and even some EDM on the side. As always, if you prefer to have all the songs played in one place, you can check out the YouTube playlist below.
Here are my top 20 singles for the month of November 2022:
Top Projects (Albums, Mixtapes, EPs)
This month had a few of my highly anticipated projects making the list, including Joji’s SMITHEREENS as well as Louis Tomlinson’s Faith in the Future. There are also a few deluxe versions of previously released projects such as Nessa Barrett and Nina Nisbett’s projects. I also included BROCKHAMPTON’s last two projects before their disbandment (which arguably, some of their best material by far).
Here are my top 20 projects for the month of November 2022:
And there you have it, my top singles and projects for the month of November 2022. Again, my intention is to provide a summary so that people can check out music if they don’t have enough time to do so. This list also gives you a taste of my favorite genres, and I hope you enjoy every one of them like I do. Happy listening!
P.S. If you want to actually stalk what I’m listening to at any time, feel free to do so on my Last.fm profile here. You can also check out my Musicboard profile here, where I track my backlog (under Listen Later) and reviews for music releases. Don’t worry, the long reviews are here to stay and I do also crosspost the long reviews there too.
On a less music-related note, I have a Letterboxd account here in case you’re interested in seeing which films I’m watching along with my brief film reviews. I also have a Serializd account for TV shows here. If you're into reading, I have a LGBTQIA+ story published on Tapas, featuring an aroace agender character which you can check out here.
