the single best album of 2017 you feel is overlooked

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

so it's still September and year-end lists are drifting into view. but when I think about my favorite albums of 2017 it's just a big ??????, which is very concerning. on a financial level as well as just core identity.

- the biggest culprit is that I spend large chunks of my day in an office that discourages listening to music, more large chunks of my day transcribing video (where I *actually* can't listen to music)
- it's not that I haven't discovered any new music -- in fact I've probably discovered more this year than the past few. it's just generally not been from 2017. it is fucked up on many levels that I feel guilty about this, but I work in a field that prioritizes the new above all else, and am also a machine that turns oxygen into guilt, so here we are.
- a lot of my freelance work a while back required systematic monitoring of the charts, premieres, radio adds, etc. not so much anymore. still happens, just not as a routine
- a lot of the albums I was looking forward to this year have been somewhat disappointing, if we're being honest. I won't name any because it's entirely possible I haven't been the right listener; I've been far from the most sympathetic listener to anything I haven't been paid to assess. (just covering my ass here in case I get 100 more angry emails like "SEE EVEN YOU ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG ABOUT THIS CLEARLY PERFECT FART OF GENIUS, EXCEPT THAT METAPHOR IS WRONG BECAUSE IT IS IN FACT YOU WHO ARE THE FART")
- am I just old now? is this when it happens?
- or is it the 2017 effect? the above reasons are more than sufficient to explain it, and I don't want to refract legitimate political events through my bullshit, but... many things I enjoy have seemed less appealing this year.

anyway, the title says it all: what is the single best album of 2017 you feel is overlooked? obviously I have no shortage of places that will tell me the Kendrick or Lorde albums are the greatest things ever.

I have a few. The one that springs to mind the most is Future Islands' The Far Field, which has had some understandably lukewarm reviews but for me has grown into one of my most played records. It's quite one-note and not a huge departure from their usual sound, but at the same time it's a near-perfect crystallisation of their sound - them doing what they do best. Each song has slowly turned into a classic for me now.

I want to say Midnight Magic's 'Free From Your Spell' which is a great nu-disco/pop album but it came out in November 2016 and not the kind of thing that would get any real critical buzz at this point but I haven't played anything more recent quite as much yet so just listen to it anyway.

El Goodo - By Order of the Moose

---

Perfectly executed homage to '60s garage & psychedelic rock. Great follow-up to their 2009 LP Coyote. I think it's much more cohesive and enjoyable than Coyote and I've been listening to it on loop for three weeks now. I know I'll burn out, but I'm enjoying it while it's still fresh. Listen to "It Makes Me Wonder" and "Sit & Wonder" for a good taster. Both have music vids on YouTube.

I've probably discovered more this year than the past few. it's just generally not been from 2017. it is fucked up on many levels that I feel guilty about this

Oh how I can relate to this! It's not that I'm overly focused with the new - and, let's face it, there's more of it than ever. But our society is completely obsessed with "what have you done for me lately", especially in America where we tear down our 'old' buildings with no regard for their history or importance. And music has always been youth-driven, so it makes sense we feel guilt about not being as completely engaged as we once were. But I let that feeling wash away when I listen to something new-to-me-and-cool.

Most of my discoveries this year come from a previous era, the new Jane Weaver being my favorite of 2017 releases. Runners up include Fazerdaze - Morningside, The Black Watch - The Gospel According To John, Popguns - Sugar Kisses and Pete Fij/Terry Bickers - We Are Millionaires.

I was never a huge fan of Lillix and didn't think that much of her first couple of solo albums but Young Mopes by Louise Burns is a terrific record. It's not a million miles away from The Bangles / VOTB / Belinda Carlisle at times.

I keep coming back very often to Nikki Lane's 'Highway Queen,' but I honestly don't know what kind of footprint it has in the real world. Maybe it's popular? I know it's not chart popular, and it seems untalked about in "Americana" circles for the most part. It's not throwback country, really, but it's not pop Nashville either. It swings and the songwriting is sooooo good.

Dunno about "single best", but am a bit surprised that exactly zero of these zillions of yearend roundups mention Ouï by Camille. Of several enjoyable things about this album is her sense of melody, which I find to be akin to that of Liz Fraser.

Thanks, enjoying this on first listen in a way that makes me suspect I will be listening further.

Spellling from Oakland, CA arrive seemingly fully-formed making an amazing sound that brings to the tip of your mind many sonic reference points, but is good enough to quickly push that tendency away and just demand attention on its own merit:

(Since there's nothing on Youtube I can embed, I guess I'll play the references game to get anyone to check it out. The record has tones of Sade, Cocteau Twins, Erykah Badu, Portishead, This Mortal Coil, Nona Hendryx, Pieter Nooten & Michael Brook's 'Sleeps With the Fishes' record, The Knife, and my favorite record from last year (discovered this year), Serpentwithfeet. Really bracing, singular, confident stuff.)

whenuweremine nominated the Charlotte Dos Santos album Cleo. I had not seen it mentioned anywhere before that. Incredible voice, incredible singer. Might be too whimsical for some tastes (covering a 13th century song, writing new lyrics for Freddie Hubbard's Red Clay, doing a new 60s-sounding Latin soul song in English) but I think she makes it all work. File under vocal jazz and soul, I guess.

yasmine hamdan - al jamilat

https://yasminehamdan.bandcamp.com/album/al-jamilat

i came across a video for a song off this album while i was just clicking through a "recommended for you" playlist on youtube, so i don't really have any idea what the larger social or musical context for this artist is. she's lebanese, the lyrics aren't in english, the video i saw had subtitles that made the lyrics seem very apocalyptic and political, but the music is very beautiful and ethereal. it's not lo-fi but it doesn't seem to have any interest in being conventionally hooky and poppy. i guess i would say RIYL grimes' visions, maybe juana molina or susanne sundfør.

it's really good, i know the language barrier is a factor in why it isn't more well known, but i'm really surprised that i haven't seen it show up in any year-end discourse given the quality and how good the videos are.

Any impressions of Jo Harman? She seems not to have been mentioned on ILM ever. I think she's good, but I'm not sure how good yet. I love the 70s (probably more than any decade for English language popular music, maybe popular music in general), but sometimes the echoes of the 70s seem too obvious.

I will repeat: Camille is fantastic and you don't know what you're missing if you haven't given it a spin. It's not the cabaret music I suspect some are expecting. It's very melodic, but there are often separate layers of Camille's vocals doing primarily rhythmic things (in addition to the rhythmically oriented instrumental layer). The technique is often very adventurous, but it's much too catchy to be filed with extreme experimental vocal music.

_Rudipherous_, Monday, 1 January 2018 02:50 (nine months ago) Permalink

(anatol_merklich, glad you like the Charlotte Dos Santos. I think I might rank Camille slightly higher at the moment, because it's so polished. And it feels like Camille is inventing her own unique sub-genre of pop music.)
