2022 was a pretty memorable year all things considered but still seemed to flash by in the blink of an eye. Maybe that’s down to our own advancing years. Despite all that, we will never tire of saying that yet again our home-grown talent knocked it out of the park. From old favourites returning to the fold to young artists exploding out of the gates, it was another busy year.
We already whittled down thousands of tracks into a shortlist of 50 (Singles: 50 -26 and Singles 25 – 1) so we thought it was only appropriate to do take a stab at full length releases this year too. For the first time we are including EPs as well as albums in this list. That made things even more challenging for our team but may we present to you releases twenty five to eleven of our favourite EPs and albums of 2022. Hopefully it gives a small taste of how good a year 2022 was for music from Northern Ireland. Long may it continue!
