Few records from this year have reverberated and rumbled through the thoracic cavity quite like Fetish Bones , in which, Philadelphia-based musician, artist, and activist Camae Ayewa creates thirteen sound collages of spoken word, found founds, analog electronics and more.
Since then the label has nurtured a nascent lo-fi digi-dub sound on a string of cassettes and this, its sole LP release. If Adam Curtis made digi-dub, it might sound a bit like this. Originally conceived of as a soul record, the album filters vulnerable moments through slippery scales, from reverb-heavy smoothness to the very pits of experimentation.
Though the Tennessee-raised, Turin-based artist has released on labels like NON, Janus and Halcyon Veil under a number of guises, this stands at his most personal work to date and the perfect example of what the peerless PAN label stands for.
But, on the usually horrific Black Friday, Frank Ocean via XL sold copies of the album for 24 hours only in a rather nice monochrome record sleeve version.
But then again EARS is by no means an electronics-only affair and a remarkable thing about this one is the central presence of the acoustic, both in the instruments that intertwine with the Buchla arpeggios, and indeed in the feeling that an attentive ear to natural sound channels the bleeps and blips into its unique melodies.
The deadliest riddim record of the year? This is it, right here. The same track includes an extract from Adam Curtis on uncertainty and non-linearity. From vampires and matters of the heart to menstruation and the female form a recurring theme for Hval , blood is well and truly at the centre of this record and also the live show, which features a performance artist pictured in the sleeve , rose petals and a paddling pool. Like all great albums, Blood Bitch is best heard in its entirety and deserves of a few spins to let it to sink in.
A record that preaches solidarity in all its forms, the peerless production and lyrical maturity exudes authority, and emanates a sort of avuncular comfort in knowing that there are elders out there who still get it. Though there were many exceptional ambient albums in , this was by far the most individual. Without a doubt one of the most enjoyable records of the year. Working with Yusupha Suso, son of a renowned Mandika and a balafon maestro a kind of wooden xylophone , Bennett gives each track a pulse of sorts, always allowing the natural syncopations and timbres of the original recordings to dictate the personality of each track.
A refreshingly understated record, but no less impressive an achievement. Musically sparser and more ambient than its predecessor, yet pushed to a breaking point of sorts in its vulnerability, Skeleton Tree packed an emotional weight and resonance like no other record this year. So we end where we started, and an artist whose work reflected the turbulent and non-linear experience of the times like nothing else this year.
Rarely has a record snuck into the collective consciousness quite as gracefully and unobtrusively as A Seat At the Table. To those in the know, Solange was already a high achiever, maturing over fifteen years in the public eye to make her mark on the world of fashion, film and music. Across twenty one stunning songs and interludes, Solange meditates on the personal and political aspects of blackness, her deft soprano soaring over a backing of sublime, spiritual soul grooves and restrained production.
The vinyl, not a foregone conclusion by any means, delivers the full story, artwork and all in one essential set. A Seat At The Table has all the hallmarks of an enduring classic and wears them with effortless style. Your wishlist is empty. View Wishlist. Cart 0. The year on vinyl.
