Facebook teenage albums list thing

January 13, 2017 at 9:58 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

I try to avoid jumping on the bandwagon with these types of posts but for some reason I’m caving in this time. Here are ten albums that re-programmed my brain by the time I started college. Pretty much all of these were introduced to me by WPKN, college radio, or CMJ New Music Monthly.
Future Sound of London: ISDN
Orbital: In Sides
Aphex Twin: Richard D James Album
µ-ziq: Lunatic Harness
Alec Empire: The Destroyer
Stereolab: Dots & Loops
Guided By Voices: Alien Lanes
Dr. Octagon
Sun Ra: Space Is The Place
Quasimoto: The Unseen
This is leaving off a lot of “obvious” (but still valid) choices like Moby, Beck, Björk, Beastie Boys, A Tribe Called Quest, Daft Punk, Pixies, Massive Attack, Tricky, Radiohead, etc.

Taking it further, here’s 10 college albums:
His Name Is Alive: Someday My Blues Will Cover The Earth (really all of them, but this is where I started)
Cocteau Twins: Heaven Or Las Vegas
Brian Eno: Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks
Venetian Snares: Higgins Ultra Low Track…
Duran Duran Duran: cdr he sent me in 2002
Longmont Potion Castle: Best Of
Alice Coltrane: Journey In Satchidananda
Coil: Musick To Play In The Dark Vol. 1
Negativland: Escape From Noise
People Like Us: Abridged Too Far

I forgot to post about this before, but I participated in AllMusic’s 2016 year end polls.
Here’s the individual staff lists:
AllMusic Loves 2016
And my ginormous Spotify playlist.
And the Favorite Electronic Albums, which I reviewed 20 of.

Cryptolect: The Marrow In My Bones (UNO, 2016)

Cryptolect: The Marrow In My Bones

Cryptolect: The Marrow In My Bones

This came out in October and sadly seems to have escaped notice for the most part. I was immediately hooked when I heard it. Tense, dramatic abstract club music with scattered vocals. Super urgent, always searching for something, feels like it’s brushing up against discovering some sort of shocking, horrible truth. “Punished” is so, so good. Harsh, crushed, heavy, powerful, transcendent. It’s barely over 15 minutes long, you certainly have time to listen to it on Bandcamp right now!

c.Kostra: Now I Feel It (Pytch, 2016)

c.Kostra: Now I Feel It

c.Kostra: Now I Feel It

c.Kostra is Ryan Olcott, who used to be in 12 Rods in the ’90s, and was also a part of Zod Records group Mystery Palace. He also produced Devata Daun’s Look, one of my out-of-nowhere favorite albums of last year. This album continues with the smudged-tape-wave sound of that album, but it adds more of a smooth funk style. It’s definitely more ’80s sounding, but filtered through a malfunctioning tape deck. Pretty much every song has vocoders. There’s horns, cozy guitars, Linn drums (especially on “Girls N Minneapolis”), and slow jams. The tracks in the middle get choppy and glitchy, but others are a little more breezy. Gloriously fractured and warped. Listen at Bandcamp.

Camp Candle: ERE (self-released, 2016)

Camp Candle: ERE

Camp Candle: ERE

This Philadelphia duo sent WCBN a three-song CDR a few months ago, and I was hooked by the second song. Somewhat distant but still pretty direct chillwavey pop which instantly reminded me of Detroit’s Little Animal. Same sort of dreamy, trippy feeling, but maybe without as many slow jams, and with a bit of lush guitar. I feel like the two duos would be playing lots of shows together if Detroit and Philly weren’t so far apart. This free mixtape was posted on their Bandcamp back in June, and it’s not too late to get familiar. “The Birthday Circle” is still my favorite, but the more hip-hop-leaning “Surface” is growing on me as well.
