Music of the year
« on: Wed, Dec 19, 2018, 10:04 AM »
As in the best stuff. Who's been buying new music this year?

Obviously the Ezra Furman Love You So Bad is one of the best 45s of the year.

Albums must surely include - Ben Pirani - How Do I Talk My Brother, The Other Years, The Goon Sax and the Kama Aina and Hochzeitskapelle Wayfaring Suite.

Eh?

Susanne Sundfoer - I know she isn't new but she was new to me at Green Man this year.  What a voice.

Not necessarily 'best stuff', but among the few new artists I discovered this year I loved:

Cucina Povera Ė Hilja
GULP Ė All Good Wishes
Mastersystem - Dance Music

Plus very obsessed with Cocoa Sugar and, lately, I'm finding Bananas highly addictive, "fuck off with your happiness" being one of my favourite lines of 2018.  :)
