1. Michael Pisaro - Nature Denatured and Found Again (4 hours of musique concrete in 5 parts, amazing work with sound, it's long but it's a light listen that goes easy on the ears)

2. Joshua Abrams and Natural Information Society - Mandatory Reality (very cool post-minimalism kind of rock/jazz, recommended for fans of the concept of constancy in music)

3. Sote - Parallel Persia (a cleaner, studio recorded take on the Persian music/electronic manipulation hybrid of Sacred Horror In Design)

4. George Lewis & Roscoe Mitchell - Voyage and Homecoming (George Lewis has been working on this AI performer called Voyager for decades now, it controls a piano here and they have a weird jazz trio.  Also features some really cool electronic manipulations on the first track)

5. AE_LIVE

6. Lifted - 2 (this is music constructed from studio improvisation, so there's all sort of weirdness but it's been edited to keep things focused. Co La and Motion Graphics are in this group so naturally the production is amazing)

7. Bass Clef - 111 angelic MIDI cascade (some high detail great sounding synthesis, I love the way on the track Dear John what starts out as a little flutter in the sound at the end of the phrase gets stretched out into a whole rhythm, lots of really great touches like that)

8. Myriam Bleau - Lumens & Profits (cool stuff that's sort of like Mark Fell except the music is generated from spinning tops or something so the tempo is all over the place)

9. June Chikuma - Les Archives (archival reissue release of music from the composer of many of the Bomberman games, including the celebrated Bomberman Hero soundtrack.  It does include a 7 inch with two completely unreleased songs)

10. Nebulo - ASCII SNAKE (a bonkers computer music IDM EP)

Looks like i’ve got some catching up to do as there’s a load of releases that i’ve yet to hear. 

i spent the first few months of 2019 working through Chris Douglas’s Bandcamp releases. Still plenty to keep me going from those.

Others that stick out from this year so far that I don’t think have been mentioned above (although apologies if they have)

Mikron - Severance

SDEM - Index Hole (this and the above seem like a slightly different approaches from CPU)

Bot1500 - English Beach EP

North Manc Beds - GazOhmEater

To be honest, most of the things that have caught my attention this year, so far, are punk records. But these are ones I've listened to a lot this year:

Torso - Build and Break

Khiis - Bezoar

Prettiest Eyes - Vol. 3

RX-101 - Dopamine

The first release of 2019 I listened to was: 

Lena Raine - Oneknowing

and I think it secretly is still one of my favorite releases of 2019 so far...

It just hits a sweet spot for me. Maybe I'm getting more soft as the years go by, lol. 

Apparently she also wrote the soundtrack for the Celeste, the videogame. Guess I should check that game and soundtrack out. 

Also outstanding in 2019 imho so far:

Aleksi Perälä - Sunshine 3

Bjarki - Happy Earthday

I still have a lot of catching up to do though.

So more favorites will follow undoubtedly.

Love Bjarki, but Earthday was kinda a letdown for me. Some great tracks....and too much filler imo.

Yeah there were a few bangers and the rest kind of fell to the wayside for me. There’s been so much good shit this year though, I probably also haven’t given it the right amount of attention. I’m struggling to keep up.

Never heard of Bjarki, intrigued by the cover. Samples sound good.
