  1. Enchantment of the Ring
    by Secret Stairways
  2. Spirit Phone
    by Lemon Demon
    When He Died When He Died
    Like mid-00s internet aesthetic mixed with what I can only imagine the aural aesthetic of Goosebumps would be. Creepy, informal, and infectiously singable.
  3. Traveller
    by Patricia Taxxon
    Ascent Ascent
    Unpretentious, uncomplicated and endlessly pleasant to listen to. Taxxon's layers of sound feel like nothing has been wasted, but doesn't turn out spartan at all; it's sweet and calming. Spaceman tugs at my heartstrings in a hard-to-define way and it's definitely the highlight.
  4. More True Than Time Thought
    by Hedge Wizard
    Clairvoyance Clairvoyance
    Crunchy and just lo-fi enough to give a primitive texture without being simplistic. Hedge Wizard gives you tracks that feel hewn from the cold ancient stone and mildewy air of a distinctly quirky and mystical dungeon.
  5. beyond the edge of the world
    by lookfar
    the far reaches the far reaches
    Instantly atmospheric and unique , with a real choice balance between embracing the genre's crunchy compression without using it as a crutch or a singular style. Already vying for a spot on my favourite album list.
  6. CITY DEPTHS
    by Bryce Miller
    Intruder Intruder
    Perfectly achieves the intention to create a soundtrack for a film that doesn't exist. Feels easily applicable to any narrative you choose to invent but clearly follows a narrative progression. The album works better as a whole soundscape to be listened in one go, with the standout moments served better by larger context and buildup.
  7. In League with Dragons
    by The Mountain Goats
    Waylon Jennings Live! Waylon Jennings Live!
    John & co.'s most easily listenable album I've heard, for better and worse. It may not have the same intensely, sometimes-uncomfortable personal lyrics and subject matter, but it nevertheless is a rock solid record with rich instrumentation and a wide variety of tones without feeling disparate.
  8. Mother Earth's Plantasia
    by Mort Garson
    Concerto for Philodendron and Pothos Concerto for Philodendron and Pothos
    Discovered years ago and finally able to purchase this one properly. A frankly ahead-of-its-time record that evokes strong and serene vibes with an audibly spartan toolset. Garson certainly struck gold with Plantasia and it's been a personal favourite of mine, always and likely forever.
  9. II
    by Fief
    Soul of a Nameless Bard Soul of a Nameless Bard
    Instantly unique and calming with a profound sense of place, a pervading mood of whimsical fantasy. An album of the quiet moments and safe places of dungeon synth.
  10. Below (Original Soundtrack)
    by Jim Guthrie
    Caves Caves
    Perhaps the most atmospheric and textural of Jim's work to date, veering into realms of environmental audio with strong identity that I'd usually only get from the likes of Disasterpeace. Even without the context of the game that I haven't played, this stuff is immersive and enveloping, like delving into the depths of the titular caves Below.
  11. FZ: Side Z
    by Various Artists
    Pressure Pressure
    Probably even more varied and rich with character than Side F. A lot of them feel like something between covers and remixes, repurposing multiple songs into new aesthetics and atmospheres.
  12. I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats: All Hail West Texas
    by Various Artists
    Blues in Dallas Blues in Dallas
    Rich, dense with style and fresh takes. Darnielle's lyric-heavy songs translate into some truly kickass covers.
  13. Nostalgia
    by Patricia Taxxon
    Warrior Warrior
    While not mediocre like the apparent RPG cartridge it comes from, Nostalgia is unassuming and sits a comfortable plateau of quality. However particularly charming tracks like Waterfall and Cavern instantly create a calm and sense of place with spartan resources.

    by They Might Be Giants
  20. Beat the Champ
    by The Mountain Goats
    Unmasked! Unmasked!
    By turns introspective, specific, uncomfortable, and unapologetically personal. Darnielle really seems to have fun doing what he does and it shows in both his playful lyrics and his subtle injection of symbolism about his experiences into an album about wrestlers.
