музыкальные итоги года   Leave a comment

Thanks to Panarchist for including my stuff in this:

музыкальные итоги года
1. Musette – Drape Me in Velvet
scratchy dusty asthmatic elevator muzak for 2-story buildings

2. a) Pete Um – The New Album
b) Pete Um – Can’t Get Started
c) Pete Um – Babysitting the Apocalypse

Felix Kubin meets Peter Mamonov near the trashpile behind an abandoned
thrift shop in the middle of nowhere in the near future where
super-intelligent robot rednecks rule the universe:

3. Anne-James Chaton + Andy Moor – Transfer/1-2-3-4

“…sound poetry and musical intersections focusing on the themes of
travel and transportation, viewed from a factual (side A) and fictional
(side B) perspective.” (also check out “Le Journaliste” (2009), one the
best albums of the previous decade).

4. Lonnie Holley: Just Before Music
outsider blues

5. Mac Demarco -2
detuned jangle pop

6. Starving Weirdos – Land Lines
earthy hippies encounter astral jazz and explode

7. a) Frank Ocean – Channel Orange
b) Kendrick Lamar – good kid, m.A.A.d city
c) Chimurenga Renaissance – PUNGWE Mixtape:

(a year in hip-hop)

8. Fenster – Bones
gently dislocated boy-girl pop music, remake-remodel of Young Marble Giants

9. Markus Mehr – On
shimmering layers of orchestral samples sounding closer to My Bloody Valentine than to the nauseatingly
bland sort of “pop ambient”

10. Eloïse Decazes & Eric Chenaux
not dissimilar to the most sober, quietest moments of Brigitte Fontaine & Areski circa mid 1970s

11. Serengeti – C.A.R.

13. a) Gui Amabis – Trabalhos Carnivoros
b) Passo Torto – s/t (actually from 2011 but who cares)

All hail Felix Kubin for sending out Um-shaped underground smoke signals towards mainland Europe.
