Hey everyone,
Last chart of the year, so here's a rough list of some of my favorite releases of the past 12 months:
SWANS: To Be Kind [Young God]
Andy Stott: Faith In Strangers [Modern Love]
Burial: Rival Dealer [Hyperdub] (this came out since i posted my best of 2013 list so it counts)
Ballerine Nadiya: s/t [Singapore Sling] (my fave tape of the year: http://singaporeslingtapes.bandcamp.com/album/ballerine-nadiya)
Paper Armies: Trying [Bridgetown]
Planning For Burial: Desideratum [Flenser]
Lewis: Romantic Times [Light In The Attic] (i prefer this one to L'amour by a mile)
Dreamcrusher: Suicide Deluxe [Hausu Mountain]
Venetian Snares: My Love Is A Bulldozer [Planet Mu]
Storm Ross: The Green Realm [self-released]
Fear Of Men: Loom [Kanine]
Brian Eno/Karl Hyde: High Life [Warp] (better than Someday World by a hundred miles)
Ian William Craig: A Turn of Breath [Recital]
Sd Laika: That's Harakiri [Tri Angle]
Lee Bannon: Alternate/Endings [Ninja Tune]
Ben Frost: A U R O R A [Mute]

Etc. etc. I'm keeping this one way shorter than the list I did last year.
Thanks for everything!
See you in 2015!!!
