C’mon, let’s test these boards and share some knowledge/love at the same time.
Which record have you been listening to the most that everyone should hear? And which lesser known records should everyone hear before contemplating doing their year end list?
Favourite: The 1975 - can’t get enough of it. It’s ambitious. Sprawling. Full of hooks. Has sensational production and everything about it is more-ish once you crack its shell. Has moments that are more like Four Tet than you might expect.
Outlier: School of Seven Bells - SVIIB - would hate to think anyone would do an end of year list having not heard this heartbreakingly epic final School of Seven Bells record.
