Back and hope for better things after the lull.

Bee OK, Tuesday, 9 July 2024 18:46 (three days ago) link

Rosalía, Kamasi Washington, Sons of Kemet, Makaya McCraven, and Autechre all possibilities.

tough choice between julia holter+noname. shout to tracey, but my vote is going elsewhere.

hms not listed: jon hassell, steve tibbetts, king krule live on the moon, +the sea and cake. darn solid year!

low

nxd, Tuesday, 9 July 2024 19:13 (three days ago) link

The Beths get my vote. That album still has insane replay value.

Robyn, Low, Janelle Monae, Mitski, SOPHIE, Kali Uchis, Christine & The Queens, Tracey Thorn and Hop Along all make this a very strong year.

Nothing I particularly love here. I was mostly listening to metal from this year.

o. nate, Tuesday, 9 July 2024 21:14 (three days ago) link

Yeah, pretty alienating list for me. I'd have New Bodies by Tangents, The Good the Bad & the Queen, Simmy or Leila Abdul-Rauf (although it should be the Boygenius ep really).

I would prefer not to. (Chinaski), Tuesday, 9 July 2024 21:18 (three days ago) link

At the time it was a tie between Yves Tumor and SOPHIE. I had not yet heard the Daphne & Celeste.

Today it still a tie between Yves Tumor and SOPHIE. And there is no option for Daphne & Celeste. The three of them are five of my favourite albums of the last six years.

bummed that saba's care for me did not make the cut :(

the defenestration of prog (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 9 July 2024 21:21 (three days ago) link

in that case, rosalia. that album was a true game changer

I also loved:
George Clanton - Slide
RP Boo - I'll Tell You What!
Alva Noto & Ryuichi Sakamoto - Glass
Félicia Atkinson & Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - Limpid as the Solitudes
BEAST - Ens
The Good, the Bad & the Queen - Merrie Land
Dirty Projectors - Lamp Lit Prose
Aïsha Devi - DNA Feelings
Peder Mannerfelt - Daily Routine
Booker Stardrum - Temporary etc.

This was a nice year for it

Parquet Courts - Wide Awake!

Also seeing them with the Sun Ra Arkestra was my favorite show of the year. Love the band and have enjoyed pretty much everything they've released but that album is probably my favorite.

Kacey Musgraves - Golden Hour
Arctic Monkeys - Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino
Yves Tumor - Safe in the Hands of Love
Julia Holter - Aviary
Autechre - NTS Sessions 1-4

amazing year. probably going with autechre because it feels like it had the longest-term impact on my listening

father john misty

i’m in over my…. heeeaaaad?

brimstead, Tuesday, 9 July 2024 22:17 (three days ago) link

christine and the queens is an easy #1 for me, the only other ones i really care about are cardi b, tierra whack, kacey, the 1975 and snail mail.

some dude, Tuesday, 9 July 2024 22:44 (three days ago) link

Low or SOPHIE for me, went with Low

husked, tonal wails (irrational), Wednesday, 10 July 2024 14:22 (two days ago) link

Aviary

willips brighton the quorners (geoffreyess), Wednesday, 10 July 2024 14:28 (two days ago) link

The only ones I remember from this year are Jon Hopkins and Let's Eat Grandma. Hopkins was extremely enjoyable for a couple weeks, but I've never revisited it. I enjoyed the run-up to Let's Eat Grandma, but when album time came I couldn't eat a whole one.

Kamasi Washington, Sons of Kemet, Makaya McCraven from unperson's selections seem like things that would land for me now that I wouldn't have been interested in then. will check them out.
