Best Catches From The Orbital Starstream 2022

original illustration by Jerzy Gluszek (Poland)

So much great music has embedded itself in the Orbit's radio array since the beginning of the year, swept into the weave of our radic wavelengths by publicists, journalists, influencers, musicianados, and feral fans. 

I have had to count past fifty for the first time to number off this still-incomplete compilation of my favourites. These are the albums that have flipped the breaker, alternated the current, retained the optimum charge, and created radiations that should emanate for another good half-life beyond the warrantee.
