On The Right Side of 2022

It's the end of another year and, alas, I'm mostly filled with unfocused thoughts about the past year and the future.  But it's been another grand year for music and I'd particularly recommend the recent releases by The Volebeats, Sessa, The Sadies, CMAT, Sudan Archives, Sharon Van Etten, and Angel Olsen

As usual, I tried to only includes who weren't on the two previous years compilations.  But I did make an exception for Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, and Andrew Bird since they were all dueting on last year's compilation.  All of the previous year end compilations are also available (200920102011201220132014201520162017, 201820192020, 2021).

On the Right Side of Christmas

 I apologize for the delay, but this last week has been a bear (and I was still recovering from a cold up until 2 days ago).  Anyway, I don't know if people really need another one, but there's still a lot of great old and new releases, so it's time for another Christmas compilation (and all of the the previous Christmas compilations are also available).  Hope everyone enjoys it!
