When Nothing’s Got a Hold on You: Aoife O’Donovan’s Age of Apathy

At In Review Online, I wrote about Aoife O’Donovan’s album Age of Apathy, an early favorite for 2022. It’s also the best album she’s ever made, hitting everything (singing, lyrics, themes, melodies, production, sequencing) just right.

Incidentally, I’ve been tweeting monthly recaps of my favorite new releases. The five best albums I heard in January:

Aoife O’Donovan, Age of Apathy
Elvis Costello and the Imposters, The Boy Named If
Immanuel Wilkins, The 7th Hand
Anais Mitchell, self-titled
Cat Power, Covers

And five for February:

Big Thief, Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You
Spoon, Lucifer on the Sofa
Robert Glasper, Black Radio III
Mitski, Laurel Hell
Ethan Iverson, Every Note is True
