John Wizards - S/T
First up and oh so hot! Thanks to Paco for the tip. This is the most catchy and fun music thing of the year.
Eluvium - Nightmare Ending
Easily the best Eluvium album.
Sean McCann - Music For Private Ensemble
A yearly fixture on my lizt. Maybe his best yet? Or maybe it's not? So many layers! So epic! So many instruments mostly played by Sean hisself! How awful is that cover though? Yeah pretty awful.
Deep Magic - Reflections of Most Forgotten Love
Lots of best albums yet by my old faves this year.
Aquarelle - August Undone
You know I'm a sucker for lush, vibrant drones. This hits the spot.
Jerusalem In My Heart - Mo7it Al-Mo7it
Give me a break. Just listen to this. Serious jamz.
Julianna Barwick - Nepenthe
Oh man what a beautiful dream! A clear step up from her already awesome first album.
Julian Lynch - Lines
A seriously underrated guy I think. Real nice tunes.
Oneohtrix Point Never - R Plus Seven
It's great. Nothing else really sounds like this.
Tim Hecker - Virgins
Ol' Timmy never really puts out a bad album, and this is up to his usual standard. Everyone likes virgins, right? Also did you know he's getting his Ph.D. in the subject area Urban Noise?
Also I loved Daft Punk, but you already know about that, right?
