Tastes Like New Music Friday: April 22, 2022

Thank you for the music, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.



It’s another light weekend for new releases. Possibly the weakest so far this year.

Or so we thought.

Fortunately King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are here to bless us with Omnium Gatherum. Which is, surprisingly, their first release this year (slackers). But it is a double album–their 20th overall.

It was supposed to come out last week, but instead it came out this week! Ja Spaceman is also back with the latest Spiritualized record Everything Was Beautiful. It follows their 2018 album, And Nothing Hurt.

Post-punk (and critical) heroes Fontaines D.C. are back with their third album, Skinty FiaThe Irish band hit it big with their last release A Hero’s Death, which was nominated for a Grammy for best Rock Album in 2021.

In other releases, Taj Mahal collaborated with Ry Cooder for a new album titled Get On Board. The band that gave us Wagon Wheel and then faded along with all the other indie folk acts, Old Crow Medicine Show are releasing their seventh album, Paint This Town.

It’s almost Bob Dylan, but it’s not. It’s Bob Vylan. And they have a new album out called Bob Vylan Presents the Price of Life. If you enjoy, “A vicious mix of grime, hip-hop and punk” you should definitely check it out. If that doesn’t sound good, I would pass.

If big anthemic, theatrical music is your jam, then check out Scottish band Cold Years’ new release Goodbye to Misery. It’s another one where if you enjoy the influences–Creeper, My Chemical Romance; and don’t mind a good Scottish accent–you’ll probably find this one worth checking out.

Blues guitar institution Bonnie Raitt is back with her 21st album. You can read about Just Like That in the New York Times, but it’s likely to be ignored by the cooler periodicals.

Finally, SongBook the debut album from Australian psychedelic rock band The Lazy Eyes is out.

More releases

Giving The World Away – Hatchie
For Those Who Are Wronged – Kathryn Joseph
The Turning Year – Roger Eno
Obsidian – Northlane
It’s Almost Dry – Pusha T


We’ve got another one from Radiohead side project The Smile.

Soccer Mommy is getting dark with her new single.

This is a new artist but she’s getting strong buzz with American Teenager.


Cousin Greg is developing a series for HBO set to take place in the early-’00s and all about the indie rock scene that gave us famous buzz bands like The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, Franz Ferdinand. Hopefully it lasts longer than HBO’s last prestige music show, Vinyl.
