Newly released Peter van Hoesen's 2008-2018 Uncovered Vol 1-2-3 might totally end in my list Obviously I haven't listened to all the 52 (!) tracks yet but the bits I've heard are stellar.

He nearly totally steals the shows with those archives, more particularly volumes 2 & 3.

The People I Love would probably be my AOTY if I were willing to cough up the $12 to listen to the whole thing

if you get an apple music free trial you can stream all the pi releases on there (I haven't checked The People I Love yet, but I have been listening to Anna Webber - Clockwise a lot and can recommend that one for sure, really amazing stuff)

I'll probably just buy the album eventually, but I will now check out Clockwise.

I bought The People I Love.  On the first listen, it seemed less rhythmically intense than Dialect Fluorescent, and also less consistent in recording/production quality.  Journey around the Truth remains the album of the year for me.

This was my 2019 AOTY.  Chris Gladwin never disappoints me, and although this didn't release til Halloween, nothing else approaches it this year IMO.  Flawless hauntology / occult goodness.  (And I snagged a green Cthulhu CD-R)

that nathan micay was nothing special. Has no place on there even though I didn’t hate it.

 

 


That’s my Spotify plist for best tracks of the year if anyone is interested. Play in order please

 

also fuck yes Los is probably my favorite off the whole album, besides Maru, All to Get Her and Dancers.
