I’ve briefly mentioned the self-titled Quiltland album in the post about my favourite music of the year so far, then being unaware it only came out yesterday. So I thought this deserves an extra post, because it’s a really great record (but then again that’s usually the case with Astro:Dynamics releases!)
As mentioned on Mr Beatnick’s radio show about a minute ago, Quiltland will perform at London’s Café Oto this Friday. Everybody else can buy the album from the label’s Bandcamp store, Bleep and all good record stores. If you ask me, the 1991 remix is worth it alone.
In recent years there has been an odd discrepancy between the music I write about during the year and the music I feature as my favourite at the end of the year. Needless to say that this is mostly caused by an increasing lack of time, also known as laziness in some regions of the world. Alright, I’m aware of it and I’m trying to make things better. Since Spotify has become my favourite tool to discover new music (on a try-before-buy basis), I’ve started collecting some of my favourites in this handy playlist.
Feel free to subscribe, since I will continue to add more music throughout the year. Also, I suggest listening in shuffle-mode!
I haven’t yet made up my mind on my favourite albums this year, but as a starting point I suggest listening to the following:
Kassem Mosse – Workshop 19 (Workshop)
patten – ESTOILE NAIANT (Warp)
Taylor McFerrin – Early Riser (Brainfeeder)
LCC – d/evolution (Editions Mego)
Farben & James DIN A4 – Farben presents James DIN A4 (Faitiche)
Quiltland – Quiltland (Astro:Dynamics)
Prins Thomas – III (Full Pupp)
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Piñata (Madlib Invazion)
As I’m always interested to hear your choices, please feel free to leave a comment!
