  9. Lest We Forget What We Came Here To Do
    by Sons Of Kemet
    Play Mass Play Mass
    This record has more mythic polymeters than there are hieroglyphic uses of "black", and like Anubis judging you at death, Sons of Kemet know just where to find the seat of the soul: in your body.
  10. Michael Gordon: Sonatra
    by Vicky Chow
    Sonatra (Equal Temperament) Sonatra (Equal Temperament)
    You'd swear this was a player piano, or AT LEAST four virtuosic hands - Michael Gordon is a sadist, and Vicky Chow is a god.

    Sometimes a drawn shade and overindulgence in wine and New Order are exactly the best thing for you.

    Octave-springing laryngeal sequencing bringing yet new life to the storied kosmische sound.

    Myth Myth
    Overwhelming nostalgia for an experience you may never have even had.
  27. Life Of Leisure
    by Washed Out
    Feel It All Around Feel It All Around
    My hypothetical doctoral thesis on the foundations of chillwave will begin with a blissed-out listening of this record right here.
  28. DROOL

    let gO Of my egO let gO Of my egO
    Nnamdi is eighty dimensions ahead of the rest of us.
  29. Twinkle Echo

    Jeane, If You're Ever In Portland Jeane, If You're Ever In Portland

  32. Far Away So Close
    by Cherushii
    Set You Free Set You Free
    In my life I harbor only a few earnest mortal regrets, and this album represents one of them. I wish I had been a bigger fan of Cherushii while she was still around.
  33. S/T EP
    by Tornado Wallace
    Singing Planet Singing Planet
    Marshaling a drumline tribe for all those moments in which ideal medicine would come in the form of motoring offbeat house.
  34. Vergers
    by Sarah Davachi
    gentle so gentle gentle so gentle
  35. The Midnight Sun

    Among fewer than a half-dozen records encountered ten or more years ago that I will, invariably, listen to once a week.
