Year starts for me with singles from noname, d’angelo and lizzo.

This gets modified a lot throughout the year but if you want to keep track:

Please share your own if you’re into doing lists so I can follow them; I try to check every playlist posted in this thread at least once every month.

New singles by Kokoroko, Royal Trux and Deerhunter this weekend sound good on first listens. Looking forward to those 3 albums later this year.

My current playlist; going to try and be more discriminating this year but I'm up to 30 songs already.

Listening to ILX Listen: 2019
will leave the playlists alone but hoover up anything that's loose.

Checking out yr list

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Wednesday, 13 March 2019 19:21 (five months ago) link

i like these albums

black dresses - THANK YOU

a blistering, white-hot avalanche of mania and despair, euphoria and anxiousness, fury and tenderness, power and vulnerability. goth aesthetics undiluted by rote theatricality or allegiance to fashion, the immediacy and accessibility of pop music attained without ever actually trying to sound pop. this is the only band that matters

rabbit trap - gutz

the first lyric she sings is "i'm playing space channel 5 in my underwear" - thoughtful and fearless musings on sex, love, and the internet that often pair the diaristic intimacy of bedroom pop with lush, sprawling guitar soundscapes that feel like hum by way of tame impala. impossibly cool, supremely charismatic, fiercely singular

Really enjoying the "Labrinth,Sia & Diplo present... L.S.D." album.

Sort of reminds me of the Young Fathers album I liked so much last year.

"Genius" should have been a hit.

nicky lo-fi, Friday, 19 April 2019 15:46 (four months ago) link

This Kelsey Lu album is friggin excellent

josh az (2011nostalgia), Saturday, 20 April 2019 01:36 (four months ago) link

^ The new album by Wand is really good & frequently channels 90s Radiohead without ever sounding like a deliberate mimicry--it's very much its own thing.

days of being riled (zchyrs), Wednesday, 24 April 2019 15:56 (four months ago) link

my three favorite songs of 2019 so far:

stef chura's 'method man,' total ripper

The new SAULT album is so good she’s quickly becoming my favorite artist of the year.

Listen to “let me go” it’s like northern soul with Jaki Liebezeit styled drums.

Jeff W, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 21:37 (one month ago) link

All Hail the Silence - a duo of BT and Christian Burns that tries to emulate the moody synthpop of the 80's. for whatever reason this album is like 84 minutes long but it's still very good, they mostly nail it even though they really could've trimmed like every single track down

Neil Hamburger - Still Dwelling - this is a parody of those vanity covers albums that certain famous people made a long long time ago, where the musical backing is very professional but the lead singer is not. mostly covers of 60's tunes, somehow really fun to listen to

Underworld - Drift - my favorite stuff of the year so far. Volume 3 is my favorite so far but 4 may well top it

Dam-Funk - STFU II - not sure if this is considered an EP or an LP but it's pretty lush. not terribly different than anything else he does, but hey

frogbs, Wednesday, 3 July 2019 21:57 (one month ago) link

this one track by jute gyte is absolutely transcendent imo, even by his standards - no longer metal, avant-classical, techno, ambient or anything else. a monumental breakthrough. ffo any weird music but reminds me of the last low album, albeit run through some devilish, hugely maximalist algorithm. might reach beyond his usual fanclub as it trades the usual screams and shredding for some sort of tuneful ultra-processed arrangement

imago, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 00:57 (one month ago) link

Albums I've enjoyed so far this year (excluding metal, which I posted to the appropriate thread, and classical, which I'm not done catching up with yet). I have no idea why they happen to be primarily ambient:

Arild Andersen, Clive Bell & Mark Wastell - Tales of Hackney (ambient jazz)
Billy Woods & Kenny Segal - Hiding Places (hip hop)
The Caretaker - Everywhere, an Empty Bliss (ambient)
The Caretaker - Everywhere at the End of Time 1-6 (ambient)
The Chi Factory - The Mantra Recordings (tribal ambient)
Emerld - Demonic Inspiration (dark ambient)
Fennesz - Agora (ambient)
Ifriqqiyya Électrique - Laylet el Booree (North African/industrial)
Marissa Nadler & Stephen Brodsky - Droneflower (dark folk)
Maurice Louca - Elephantine (Arabic jazz)
Michael Tanner with Alison Cotton and Lino Capra Vaccina - The Blackening (ambient)
Michele Rabbia, Gianluca Petrella & Eivind Aarset - Lost River (ambient jazz)
MSYLMA - Dhil-un Taht Shajarat Al-Zaqum (Arabic pop)
Nivhek - After Its Own Death / Walking in a Spiral Towards the House (ambient)
Non Violent Communication - Obserwacje (jazz)
Robert Rich - Tactile Ground (ambient)
Tanya Tagaq - Toothsayer (contemporary Inuit)
Uboa - The Origin of My Depression (death industrial)
Underworld - Drift: Episode 2, ‘Atom’ (electronic)
Weyes Blood - Titanic Rising (art pop)

Forgive the lame subgenre tags, but they do come in handy.

pomenitul, Wednesday, 10 July 2019 14:15 (one month ago) link

Pom have you heard ΛΗΤΩ by Dalot, it's another ambient album that has feels very much like a London album like Hackney Tales, but evoked more through field recordings and moody atmospherics on this one. It is pretty damn good!

calzino, Sunday, 14 July 2019 08:54 (one month ago) link

Doesn't ring a bell, but I'll be sure to check it out. Thanks, calz!

pomenitul, Sunday, 14 July 2019 09:12 (one month ago) link

I probably got the wrong idea it was a London themed album because of comments in a review + one track being titled London, it is more to do with childhood memories apparently - but it did evoke living in London to me for some mysterious reason.

calzino, Sunday, 14 July 2019 09:32 (one month ago) link

London set alongside various Mediterranean cities is a good starting point for an ambient album.
