Hi Phil
Thanks for your recommendations.

Very happy to see some Low and Alva Noto mentioned already. I love the songwriting on Double Negative by Low, but by god how horrible that dynamic compression is. Pumping like crazy. Very unfortunate, because it is such a lovely album apart from that. This is what keeps me from adding it to my yearly list actually. :frowning:

My own best list is much, much longer than this, but to try to keep to a decent sized list in this thread, I am selecting three albums which sits above the rest for me:

2018%20-%20abul%20mogard 2018%20-%20gas 2018%20-%20hawthonn

+100 on Snail Mail. I literally couldn’t listen to anything else for days when this came out.

Also, GREAT thread overall. May I just say, you all have great taste in music. You most of all, @Jared_Devers. :wink:

Ditto here. What a great find!


(Jim White) #108

Good one! Thanks for the tip.

This one does not show up in a search of Roon. I wonder if it was removed?

That’s a bummer. I don’t see it on Tidal either. If I remember right, when it initially came out they had it on there but one of the tracks was left off as “album only” so I went out and bought it. If you like their other stuff I would say it is a easy choice. The new piano player is a great fit with the band. I saw them play a show a few weeks ago and they had a great energy to them and you could tell they were having a lot of fun playing.
