Re: 2015 (Pt 1: LP´s)

So here is as an annex to the 2015 favourites mixtape some of my favourite  releases 2015 in no order. Reissues, 7″, 10″ and tapes will follow.

Lp´s

Sufjan Stevens – Carrie & Lowell (Asthmatic Kitty)

Maybe the most intimate and stripped down release of Sufjan Stevens and a return to his early works.

Daniel Bachmann – River (three lobed)

Maybe his best work up to now in the tradition of Robbie Basho or John Fahey´s Zabriskie Point tracks.

Little Wings – Explains (Woodsist)

If Little Wing´s Kyle Field ever was able to do a happy kind of summer album, this is it!

Dirty Beaches – Stateless (Zoo music)

The last dirty beaches release is an ambient album previewing the refugee situation with long tracks named “Stateless” or “displaced”. Consequent and mesmerizing.

Invisible Joy – The Polyversal Souls (Philophon)

Fresh, eclectic and groovy. With Hailu Margia and many others legends.

United Bible Studies  – It’s the Ale that cures ye (MIE) ‏

Irish folk songs as never heard before with Aine O`Dyver who reissued as well the “music for church cleaners” on LP again via MIE with a second LP (Volume II)


Mount Eerie  – Sauna (P.W.Elverum & Sun) ‏

Phil Elverum still surprises.

Fleuve III – Ô Paon (Fleuve, P.W. Elverum, Taus) ‏

Difficult to select a track – listen to it as a whole.

Change of the Guard – Kamasi Washington (The Epic, brainfeeder)

Maybe the best concert and LP this year. Curagious & epic.

By the Sea  – Annabel (Lee) (ninja tune, if)

A hidden gem. Texts by Edgar Allen Poe.

Ian William Craig – Cradle for the Wanting [Recital]

Matana Roberts – Coin Coin III (Constellation)

Rafael Anton Irisarri – A fragil Geography (40 Rooms)

Bonus:

The best Pop LP´s

Alabama Shakes – Sound and Colour (ATO)

Fat Freddy´s drop – Bays (the drop)
