After what feels like an eternity of waiting, Ghost is back with a new single "Call Me Little Sunshine" and a new record called Impera. "Call Me Little Sunshine" is definitely more in line with the heavy metal leanings of the first three Ghost albums, which is great! The video is creepy as hell, the riffs are certainly fit for stadiums, and the hooks are as hooky as they've ever been. Ghost is back, is what I'm getting at here.

Today it’s out widely via No Quarter Records, and it’s one of the most mesmerizing listens of early 2022.

Stony Brook, New York’s King Bastard release their debut full-length, It Came From the Void (review here), this Friday, Jan. 14. It’s an all-over-the-place kind of affair, the four-piece laying claim to swaths of stylistic ground with an encouraging confidence and maybe just a hint or two of we’re-doing-this-because-we’re-doing-it-and-screw-you arrogance. Bolstered by a Colin Marston co-engineering job with guitarist Mike Verni, the procession of tracks one into the next is too fluid and too purposeful in its weirdness not to be progressive, though it’s hardly prog for its own sake. From its samples and intricate deviations from the stylistic norm, King Bastard‘s first LP plays out across 45 minutes that makes short work of its ambitions toward individualism, harnessing familiar elements in jumbled fashion like they’re about to say the alphabet sideways. How does that even happen? Hell if I know.
Cordae returns with his second album, FKA Twigs delivers a collab-stacked mixtape, Kane Brown offers up a new single and Heidi Klum taps Snoop Dogg. Billboard presents First Stream featuring the hottest drops of the week.
Brazen in its forward reach, the upcoming third album, Psychic Forms, by Boise, Idaho, four-piece Ealdor Bealu, is set to release April 22 through Metal Assault Records. And oh my goodness. Its five tracks run a particularly gorgeous and progressive 40-minute stretch, and with preorders coming Feb. 18, I know word’s out early here, but wow this record right on. With vocal contributions from guitarists Carson Russell (also Ghorot) and Travis X. Abbott (also Sawtooth Monk) as well as bassist Rylie Collingwood — I never realized how many double-letters there were in this band; I wonder if drummer Michael Mulcock feels left out, though at least he’s got some alliteration — their earthen psychedelic procession has never sounded more vital or patient in its flow and you’ll pardon me if I just cut to the chase, save the review for the review, and tell you that it’s already on my best of 2022 list.
