Welcome to the Decibel Boost Podcast album roundup for the month of May 2022. The year is close to approaching the halfway mark, and while May might not have been stacked with wall-to-wall releases, there were certainly some high-profile projects of note to check out. First: Alex goes over the newest projects from Everything Everything, Fozzy, and James LaBrie before diving into the newest installment of Dream Theater’s Lost Not Forgotten archives. Next: Mark delves into new releases from IDK & Kaytranada, Quelle Chris, and Boldy James & Real Bad Man… before subjecting himself to the latest batch of songs from KFC spokesperson Jack Harlow. Then: Robert talks the latest album from metal band Cave In as well as Matt Heafy’s long-gestating black metal project Ibaraki. Finally: there was one album whose status and hype eclipsed anything else that could have dropped in May, so the gang gathers together to discuss Kendrick Lamar’s big return to the music world after 1,855 days with his newest album Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers.
