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:

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.

A wonderful record!


Indeed a fantastic album!

“Double Negative” by Low. No other album this year even came close.

Added it to the library, turned on the (tube) amp, put the headphones on, played it and then thought “boy, the tubes got up really noisy today!”.
Took me a while to realize that actually was the music :joy:
Great album!

Talking about headphone music, check out this Bach on acid (I wouldn’t play track 3 on the speakers, if I were you)
