Can you believe it's already September? I'm still referring to 2019 as "last year" and now we're on the home stretch to 2022. COVID times are weird.
In the U.S., it's Labor Day Weekend, which means Made In America, BottleRock, and Electric Zoo (but not Bonnaroo), and possibly an extra day off, so I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend, whether you're going to a festival, streaming one live from home, or none of the above. Labor Day Weekend also means less albums released than usual; it's no surprise that most of my picks this week come from artists based outside of the U.S.
