Jeff's Best of 2023 - #7: Shalom - Sublimation

This album was probably the biggest surprise for me in a year of great music.

The project of singer-songwriter Shalom Obisie-Orlu, and featuring some production from producer Ryan Hemsworth, this is alt-rock done right. It's got a lot of different elements in play, equal parts Hatchie and Hole, and is full of surprises across its runtime. This one is a grower, too - while I liked it on first listen, more and more revealed itself over subsequent listens that made me realize how it was truly one of the best of the year.

Songs of Note: "Happenstance," "Soccer Mommy," "Did It To Myself," "Lighter"
