A 2013 List Posted Mid February Because Life Is Moving Fast And You'll Be Dead Before You Know It

Including LPs, EPs and compilations, limited to one album per artist since some dudes went fucking crazy this year (I cheated a tad bit, putting two Daniel Jonsson projects in.) Ratings are included next to each release mostly for personal purposes.

Sous juju

avant-folk | playful tunes from Finnish freak folk princess Jonna Karanka. her
creativity is on full display here, and i can't help but love every second - 4
Black Death Horizon

death metal | raw, relentless and ugly as fuck, it doesn't get much better than this
- 4
Time Heals All

ambient | i know i said "dudes" plural in the description but ASC is really the sole
reason why i'm limiting these lists to one album per artist, it's disgusting how much
good music this dude puts out - 4

ambient, folk | Daniel Jonsson creates mournful, decaying soundscapes unlike
anything i've ever heard, i can't stop listening to this - 4
6Dennis Johnson

minimalism | the pleasure of slowly getting nowhere - 4
Mud, Dirt and Hiss

ambient, field-recordings | Analog synth on the one hand, avian field-recordings on
the other, each deployed perfectly. This is some of the most seductive stuff I've
heard all year. The sheer gorgeousity of these sounds will have your eyes rolling in
delight. Lovely for the morning - 4
4The Knife
Shaking the Habitual

electronic, experimental | Like the previous album from this Swedish experimental
duo, Shaking the Habitual is a sui generis creation that, in its own oblique way,
manages to be every bit as catchy as it is unique. Complete unrestrained
creativity. Fun of the highest order - 4

idm | To my ears, Autechre have produced some of the strongest, most
consistently vital music of the last two decades and Exai is no exception. But they
are not breaking any new ground with this one. Instead, it works as a culmination
of their career so far, touching on almost every phase of their catalog and
developing their already established strengths. The result is fucking glorious. Two
hours without one wasted moment - 4
2Various Artists (Classical)
Longing for the Past: The 78 rpm era in SE Asia

old ass music | A four-CD box set of 90 vintage 78 rpm recordings from long-
forgotten cultural outposts of Southeast Asia. Spanning six decades and going back
as early as 1905, this mammoth covers the music of Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia,
Laos, Malaysia and more. From an archival standpoint, this is easily one of the most
impressive compilations of all time. And as if that wasn't enough, the content is
hauntingly beautiful and almost frighteningly consistent given its size. Alien vocal
styles and mystery instruments are aplenty. If your musical interests spread beyond
the conventional confines of Western culture, I say pick this up and get ready to
enter a lost world - 4.5
1Jakob Ullmann
Fremde Zeit Addendum 4

modern classical, lowercase | This hour-long organ piece is about as slow as it
gets. But as per usual with Ullmann, a sense of meditative calm descends on those
patient enough to stick it out, so much so that any unwanted sound - be it distant
engines revving up, the jingling of keys or someone flushing the toilet next door -
will begin to feel like vile intrusions on this delicate sound-world. I went into this
expecting a masterwork for organ - which I got - but what I wasn't expecting was
finding some of the most addictive sounds I've ever heard. Trespass or perish,
bitches - 4.5
