#63

Burns Boy
Amen Dunes

That is all.


#64

Only one album thus far that’s immediately in contention for AOTY status:

A Place to Bury Strangers — Pinned

Beyond that there’s been some decent and interesting albums but nothing that has captured my enthusiasm the way an AOTY candidate should. Superorganism? Young Fathers? Preoccupations?


#65

Rolo Tomassi - Time Will Die and Love Will Bury It
Ought - Room Inside the World
Young Fathers - Cocoa Sugar
Loma - Loma
Hot Snakes - Jericho Sirens
Haley Heynderickx - I Need to Start a Garden


#66

The Soft Moon

All very good records.

So far, nothing is coming close to Rival Consoles’ Persona for me.
(I gather working my way slowly through the IDM/Ambient thread doesn’t count.)


#71

Actually, I should add sekundenschlaf by тпсб to that. Great stuff.


#72

Adding a few more to my list:

Hop Along
Wye Oak
Mastersystem
A Place to Bury Strangers
The Ex

#75

Good effort putting Typhoon in, more people need to listen to this AOTY contender (imo)


#76

I’ll give this another shot the next time I’m feeling miserable (shouldn’t be long!). I was trying really hard with it when it came out but aside from a couple songs it wasn’t sticking for me, but maybe now that it’s been a few months it’s worth a revisit.


#77

See I was the same, first couple listens I was like “yeah this is nice” but now I’m completely obsessed with it, it’s absolutely stunning and subtle and heartbreaking all at once


#78

Might give this a go. Who is it similar to?


#79

An attempt at ordering this:

  1. Typhoon - Offerings
  2. Hookworms - Microshift
  3. Hot Snakes - Jerico Sirens
  4. Parquet Courts - Wide Awake!
  5. Jeff Rosenstock - POST
  6. Young Fathers - Cocoa Sugar
  7. Ought - Room Inside The World
  8. Nils Frahm - All Melody
  9. Yo La Tengo - There’s A Riot Going On
  10. Preoccupations - New Material

The rest I’m not sure will make the cut, and even the bottom 5 are on shaky territory, I need to give IceAge, Grouper and Jon Hopkins more time, all of which I can see earning a place


#80

Big, emotional, intricate indie rock so I’d compare it to: early arcade fire, bright eyes, antlers, devil & god era Brand New

I posted a track earlier in the thread:
