Amazing work @Mr.Lady thanks so much for doing this.

Lots to discover too, already been rinsing the To Move album since that was posted. Is the Raum score both #8 & #15 points combined? x

Yeah thanks for doing this! That’ll keep me occupied for a good few months.

Fuck. I’d knew there’d be one that slipped through the net.

So Raum sneaks into 4th at the death!

Outstanding work, @Mr.Lady :pray:t3:

And, as @old_man_burner and @Exit_Chamber say, that’s my listening curated for gawd knows how long!

I’ll make a 2023 thread later unless someone beats me to it!

Thanks to everyone for making this such a brilliant place to hang out and get recs over the past year.

Having not heard Recordings From the Åland Islands until yesterday I can see why it topped the list. Listening again today, it is a beautiful piece of work.

I haven’t yet either but I’m holding on until the kids go back to school so I can listen to it in actually bloody peace…

Woohoo! Didn’t vote but would have put Aaland Islands in if I had. It was number 3 on my vote for the main AOTY poll.

Looking forward to checking some of the rest of this list out :slight_smile:

I’m unable to attend tonight’s Mary Lattimore show at Komedia in Brighton. Happy to send it to someone for a heavily discounted price or donation to a charity or something. It’s a DICE ticket so only able to transfer before 5pm.

Message me if interested!

Whoops, wrong thread!

Wrong thread!

Clarice Jensen is playing some European shows in the Autumn.

Would love to go to Copenhagen but more realistically might actually make the London date.
