Baffling list. I think it's really cool and unexpected that Tirzah is #1. I'm a huge fan of Mica Levi who produced it and there are some really interesting ideas on there. It's not in my top 10 but it's something i can really appreciate.

There was so much other good music this year and everything about this seems like 'top 10 represses for cash'.

eh probably i guess. I dunno there's a 6 month period from 01-02 when drukqs, confield, go plastic and geogaddi came out that I would reckon is the best warp has ever done.

A little more than six months, but yeah. It felt like Warp just kept putting out amazing material after amazing material back then.

Still not 8 hours worth of music. NTS in one month wins.  :trollface:  :trollface:

I've not heard of 3/4 of those folks. I'm too old for the blerps.

Not heard at all

 

Chris Carter

Kamaal Williams

Paper Dollhouse

 

Seen name only, will probably check out

 

Tirzah

 

 

SOPHIE and Yves Tumor - I appreciate what these albums are doing, some great tracks even if they are overhyped. Compared to a plethora of other higher profile "indie" musicians these are worthwhile.

 

Skee Mask and Pariah were excellent

 

I've heard older Marie Davidson from her Holodeck Records days - it's solid coldwave / 80s darkwave revival stuff but nothing really notable IMO. I rather listen to Chromatics or darker more interesting stuff like Forever Grey

 

Khruangbin was my AOTY

Thanks for recommending Forever Grey, great stuff! Sounds refreshing while still quenching my darkwave thirst. The Hunger is amazing,

 

Does seem like a cynical package from bleep, jezus.

Only heard skee mask, pariah, marie davidson's and yves tumor's albums which i loved, liked, disliked and am undecided on respectively.

 

Don't get the davidson hype either, awkward tracks that sound unfinished or start out alright but go in a terrible direction, production is solid though. Most reviews i've read (previous and current album) refer to her liveshows quite a bit, maybe she's great live.

She probably is.

 

Speaking of darkwave, one of my favs this year...

This album is so good. Too slept on IMO.
