Potsy 1/2 and a bit 2016

Haven't been very active lately and haven't been listening to much new shit either. Time to catch up, so here's 2016.
1Wild Beasts
Boy King


3.5/5 - new direction for Wild Beasts, for better or for worse - electronic/indie/art pop
2Clams Casino
32 Levels


3.5/5 - typical shitty harmless bullshit from clams, intellectually devoid, fun just the same - hip hop
3The Avalanches
Wildflower


3/5 - the last few years have been full of underwhelming comebacks and this is just another addition to the list - plundershitnics
4Sarathy Korwar
Day to Day


5/5 - world/jazz
5Adrian Younge
Something About April II


4/5 - soul/hip hop/r&b
6Blood Orange
Freetown Sound


4/5 - expect it to be a grower like the last album but at this point my least favourite of his LPs - pop/r&b
7Kayo Dot
Plastic House on Base of Sky


3/5 - as much as 2016 has been packed with new releases from a lot of my favourite artists, it seems like a bewildering number of them have been their worst releases. 2016 year of good bands making painfully average albums. - avant garde/art rock
8Four Tet
Randoms


3.5/5 - continuing the trend of four tets comps and monikers being consistently better than a lot of his recent actual albums - house
9Africaine 808
Basar


4/5 - balearic house/disco/acid
10Pop. 1280
Paradise


4/5 - gothic/noise rock/dark ambient
11Son Lux
Stranger Forms


4/5 - chamber pop/trip hop/experimental
12DM Stith
Pigeonheart


4.5/5 - this is up there on my aoty list - electronic/alt/rock
13Gold Panda
Kingdom


4/5 - nice little ep featuring works that didnt make the cut for the album i believe - downtempo
14Gold Panda
Good Luck And Do Your Best


4.5/5 - easily one of my aotys so far, cant wait to see him later this month - downtempo
15Elohim (US-CA)
Elohim


3.5/5 - indie pop
16Sepalcure
Folding Time


4.5/5 - another of the best electronic albums of the year so far alongside Gold Panda - garage/house/bass
17Mark Pritchard
Under the Sun


3/5 - the Thom Yorke single had me excited but this turned out to be about as exciting as kicking rocks - glorified ambient snores
18Radiohead
A Moon Shaped Pool


3.5/5 - easily the most disjointed, poorly assembled, inconsistent, dynamically piss-poor, radiohead album ever made but ignoring its GLARING flaws, if you look at it as a painfully shittily organized compilation of random ass singles there are some really great tracks here. - ALT
19Koi Child
Koi Child


3.5/5 - hip hop
20James Blake
The Colour in Anything


4.5/5 - a little bloated but the amount of stick out jams on here more than make up for that, especially in comparison to Overgrown which was great but never really BANGED ya know? - experimental/indie/r&b
21Red Giant (USA-NJ)
Infinity


4.5/5 - trip hop
22Fire! Orchestra
Ritual


4.5/5 - jazz/avant garde

Asphalt For Eden


4/5 - abstract hip hop
25Anderson .Paak
Malibu


4/5 - hip hop/soul/r&b
26Xiu Xiu
Plays The Music Of Twin Peaks


3/5 - this really didnt do enough of anything for me to even warrant existing. - ambient/experimental
27J Dilla
The Diary


2/5 - i love how many people pretend this isnt absolute garbage just because dilla - hip hop
28Mr. Lif
Don't Look Down


3/5 - this year is really pretty average as fuck now that i reflect upon it, damn - hip hop
29Hiatus Kaiyote
Recalibrations Vol. 1

30Elucid
Save Yourself


4/5 - hip hop
31Suuns
Hold/Still


4.5/5 - at least Suuns didnt disappoint - post punk/art rock/indie
