    I loved the Fuzz and the Simone Kermes.

    The John Grant is half brilliant. 'GMF', 'Glacier' and 'Vietnam' - Amazing. His more electronic stuff - meh.

    The Sign of Four album 'Hammer, Anvil, Stirrup' was good, and a search through Prog Archive turned up...



    It's nice.

    In with the love for the Soundcarriers, Wolf People and Rodion GA.

    Starlito - Cold Turkey (I really need to download Fried Turkey, like now)
    Migos - YRN (the children of Future and Gucci Mane let rip with ridiculous hooks, trap sounds and bird impressions)
    Tree - Sunday School 2 (Gravel voiced dude from Chicago kills it)
    Gucci Mane - Lean (the best of a trilogy from the hardest working man in Atlanta)
    Gunplay - Acquitted (I actually didn't listen to this half as much as 601 & Snort but I just wanted to get some Gunplay in my list)
    Ka - Knights Gambit (see above)
    Lito's Insomnia Addict is up there too...
    Also, I was kinda sleeping at first but Kevin Gates has had a good year. Both Luca Brasi and Stranger than Fiction came out this year and both contain some very strong material.
    Young Thug is slaying everything in sight, the 1017 Thug tape was great but he's grown by leaps and bounds since.

    also

    on the ambient end I have listened to Celestino's Kindling a lot...

    Really enjoying The Asphodells album, sounds like early New Order at times. Is that a lazy comparison?

    Just got round to listening to Marci Beaucoup just now and it's sounding like album of the year for me.

    I like this mad Nuyorquina and have just ordered her lp for Christmas. She reminds me of a strange dream I once had about Chaka Khan

    And the Jonathan Wilson LP Fanfare. Have I missed a thread on this. It's beautiful and right up the street of many on here I'd have thought
    Yeah, love that LP (and "Gentle Spirit" for that matter) - saw him in a small venue in Bristol a few weeks ago - insanely tight yet loose. so good!

    I'm really ooking forward to some quality time with IAN's Lancashire Hustlers CD at Christmas along with another VG+-related CD; Joe Woolleys The Lords of Thyme who have something coming out on Sunstone Records next year I believe?

    I didnt see it on the list but I liked large parts of "the Uncluded" very much. I wish there would be more stuff like that. Never been a great fan of the Moldy Peaches though.

    I have to agree. I haven't really had a chance to consume this until last weekend due to it's explicit content. Very apt for the corporate times we live in.

    Late entry for me is the Kal Marks LP. Indie rock with a voice sounding like a cross between the boy from smashing pumpkins and the Primus singer. Nice...

    No I didn't get too it - I'm gig fatigued now - a year of much live music! Will definitely check out the resonance show. Have you got that 12" EP of his - Pity Trials & Tomorrow's Child - with the pop-psyche amazing 'Trials of Jonathan' - love that one.

    Of late, I have just started enjoying the new(ish) Earthless LP 'From The Ages' and its relentless (but not mindless) psychedelic riffing - five tracks, just over one hours worth of altered consciousness.
    Thanks for reminding me that this is out. Arrived today, Earthless are the best.

    I don't think anyone has mentioned the Congo Natty album (aka The Rebel MC) - great if you love 94 era jump up jungle....
