Excellent! I do enjoy reading and Spotifying all the end of year lists from watmm and other publications. Mines not a vast list as I listen to mostly older music but I’ll post a few things a bit later.

love reading through these threads every year - will start assembling my list

Same here, y'all increasingly bring me up to speed with the best in electronic music every year. My old ass is more and more reliant on what I hear on the local public radio station, spotify recs, and skimming r/indieheads. That is if I'm not just re-listening to old favorites.

I've been listening almost exclusively to 1982 stuff the past couple months, so I'm just going to publish this early for what it's worth.

 

1. Aspects - STR4TA

2. Solar Power - Lorde

3. Smiling With No Teeth - Genesis Owusu

4. Call Me If You Get Lost - Tyler, the Creator

5. Moodswings in This Order - DPR Ian

6. Cavalcade - black midi

7. Deep States - Tropical Fuck Storm

8. Bright Green Field - Squid

9. Juntos ahora - Nair Mirabrat

#10 would probably be out of Hushed & Grim (Mastodon), Times (SG Lewis) or possibly Sycco's First EP (Sycco), but yeah 9 standouts.
