Oh, I forgot Meatbingo - The Error of My WAVs. I think this has to be my default AOTY vote because I have been listening to it more than anything else this year. I expect to be in the minority because it's not very IDM and it is unashamed to be cheesy, but it's great driving and working music.

this is the stuff i listened to a lot this year:

 

united waters - the narrows (that's surely my no. 1)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khp6q1CKvug

 

beach house - b-sides and rarities

colleen - a flame my love, a frequency

six organs of admittance - burning the threshold

mogwai - every country's sun

laurel halo - dust

juana molina - halo

Personally a tie between

zvλd - Baklava

AFX - Field Day London [Extended, full version of course]

 

I'm not counting the old stuff from AFX Bleepstore added with the extras. Other honorable mentions go to

 

0F.digital - I C O N

Beathaven - Acid Flange

EDM i

Jacob Portam - Illegal Albatross

RX-101 - Transmission +EP3+EP4

Trepaneringsritualen - Kainskult

Vytear - Kingtrips EP1

ZONE EATER vs. SEA OF DOGS - Zone Eater Vs. Sea Of Dogs

 

Based on the samples I've heard would also say Hellboii - Darkest Hour Pt. 1&2 and Lycurgus-Panzer1020 but thanks to zero digital output can't say for sure. Yet, worth to check out.

We really need to start doing this after January 1st, I've literally added a half dozen releases to my list based entirely off stuff that either came out this week and/or I finally got around to listening to

Good lists all. Some stuff that I missed in this thread so far:

 

Yung Lean - Stranger

Avalon Emerson - Whities 013

James Holden & The Animal Spirits - The Animal Spirits

X.Y.R. - Labyrinth

Rico Puestel - Caravel

Kettel - Alasca

Niels Broos - s/t

Dauwd - Theory Of Colours

Bola - D.E.G.

 

Also, it's not unnatural that I came to love the music that we as a label put out this year (most likely because we listened to it time and time again), but most notably

 

Noinonoinonoino - s/t

Karen Lust - Vigilax (pseudonym of Karsten Pflum)

 

really struck a chord and I'm happy to name them amongst my fav albums of the year
