Please post them here.

I haven't heard any yet but I am looking forward to Lana's new album.

Only God knows.

I don't think I've even heard a 2022 album   :-\

Happiness is a warm manatee

I have some that I liked (they were nice, but I don't think that I will listen on repeat).

Dotti Holmberg - Sometimes Happy Times (2023)

This is the only album from 2023 which I've heard so far and I like it enough that I might buy a vinyl copy and add it to my record collection. Just released from the 'Sundazed' record label, it's a compilation of songs recorded in the 60's by Dotti Holmberg (the CD version also includes four additional songs by her brother Gary.) I have to admit that I'd never heard of her until I listened to this album and I'm digging it quite a bit. Some info from the Sundazed website...

QuoteSunshine pop at its finest! Dotti Holmberg's dreamy vocals superbly combine with her innocent demeanor and saccharine lyrics to give listeners a spell-binding mixture of sticky sweet bubblegum pop. This LP features the former GoldeBriars' demos from 1966-1969, studio recordings produced by sunshine pop maestro Curt Boettcher, and is pressed on colored vinyl!

After recording two albums for Epic and Columbia with The GoldeBriars, Dotti was left to forge a new path in the music business after the band broke up. She continued to write and record home demos in her Hollywood studio apartment, many of which are included here. A few years later, Dotti reconnected with ex-GoldeBriar Curt Boettcher. Curt, already recognized in Hollywood for his work with the Association, had started his own label: Our Productions.

With Curt's help, Dotti became the backup singer on the recordings of Tommy Roe, Bobby Jameson, Friar Tuck, and Lee Mallory, who would eventually become a member of Boettcher's new recording effort, the Millennium. Then, in the classic case of the backup singer who advanced to lead, Curt decided to produce five singles with Dotti. Two of the songs were hers. The studio where all this took place, Columbia Records Hollywood, shared an amazing new technology with Columbia Records New York: two twelve-track tape machines synchronized to harness a total of twenty-four tracks. And this was the new plaything for two very particular talents, one in New York, the other in L.A.: Paul Simon and Curt Boettcher.

The musicians who backed Dotti were pure cream: Mike Deasy, Ben Benay, Jerry Scheff, and Toxie French of the Wrecking Crew. But before the sides could be pressed, promoted and released, Our Productions went under and all of her recordings were shelved.

Now unearthed and released from the vaults, Sundazed Music is delighted to bring Dotti's music to light once again.

I haven't either.

I tend to seek out old things more as I discover new things. At the moment I like punk a lot, so I'm listening to 70s and 80s stuff.

Only God knows.

I mostly listen to older music too. And of course Psy-Fi had to be on brand and find a 2023 rerelease of obscure music recorded in the 60s :laughing:

Happiness is a warm manatee

I haven't listened to much since 2010 to be honest. I'm kind of a retro guy too and I think I have a lot in common musically with Psy-Fi in particular.

There are a few things like from the 2010's though like Ty Segall and established artists like Sufjan Stevens and PJ Harvey.

The Word has spoken :D

I also pre-ordered a new album from a contemporary psychedelic-country group but the official release date is several weeks away, so I'll have to wait until I have it in my hands to post that one here.

Sure Fire Soul Ensemble - Live at Panama 66 (2023)

New live album from my favorite San Diego based instrumental soul/funk/jazz group. I already own all of their previous releases in my record collection, so I couldn't resist adding this orange vinyl version to my collection. Everything they've previously released is a great listen from start to finish and this album is no exception. Songs from their previous four studio albums and some covers.
