16Ryuichi Sakamoto / Illuha / Taylor Deupree
Perpetual


Three great ambient acts, interplaying in a smooth live experience. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8Vu4qPz2II

Success


sludge/metal. Add dirt to dirt, BLESSED https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeMAWgNskv0
14William Basinski
Cascade


Ambient/piano sweeping piano loops, emotionally and truly soul consuming (unless you're like my dad-he hates loops). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hl2zAydcf94
13Mutoid Man
Bleeder


sludge/stoner/melody Oh man, saw these guys open for DEP-these guys were on point live. I never experienced stephen brodsky but the dude got some hella pipes on him. When i saw them live the drummer sounded a lot like the drummer from converge, dumb surprise for me to find out it is the same guy. Just good fun sludgy/stoner-y metal with a nice melodic flair. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTdd4lg2Tq0
12Chris Potter Underground Orchestra
Imaginary Cities


An ambitious orchestral jazz project, balancing both composition and improv parts, all performed with true maturity, showing flash and restraint appropriately. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvQjNiXQYOo
11Portico
Living Fields


Portico drop the quartet and go for their James Blake impression, turns out to be pretty good! (though many dont agree with me) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5eBCbUxMej4
10Doomtree
All Hands


The Minneapolis hip-hop collective really shine here, all playing off each other like different characters, a lot of this is complex lyricism that draws for abstract visuals vs something that is direct storytelling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PTHFL63sTQ
9Jake Bowen
Isometric


Guitarist from Periphery writes chill electronic stuff, there a strong melancholy vibe here that would fit good on a solid anime action or drama. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kOp-ptDWHA

Pitchfork, meet your new favorite indie darlings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUVybg8zlbQ
7Voices from the Fuselage
Odyssey: The Destroyer of Worlds


Ashe never really left us, he just went back to his old band that is basically another version of Tesseract-except where TesseracT opted to groove metal patterns, Voices From the Fuselage take their cue from post-rock and blows their sound wide open and out into space. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6W5M-mFclA
6Punch Brothers
The Phosphorescent Blues


Folk/Bluegrass Although i respected this Brooklyn quartet, i never could dig into what they do. Enter The Phosphorescent Blues, where they opt to take a more pop oriented sound (straying from their bluegrass based sound). Yes, the reason why i like something is because it's more poppy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ppn7eQSBdJQ
5Bill Seaman
f (noir)


Another ambient album, where quiet devastation and optimism collide. Great to listen to when pondering about your future. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UB4ZnPjnyng
4Sufjan Stevens
Carrie and Lowell


Sufjan returns to his roots, bringing subliminal ambient elements from age of adz. I like this melancholy Sufjan this best https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lJJT00wqlOo
3Kendrick Lamar
To Pimp a Butterfly


Well. Duh. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-48u_uWMHY
2Periphery
Juggernaut: Alpha


See #1
1Periphery
Juggernaut: Omega


An appropriate metal progression for the djentlemen, a truly encompassing experience from the epic soft twinkles of "A Black Minute" all the way to the crushing closing of "Stranger Things". Spencer Sotelo is the greatest singer of our generation/time, guitars are nice and djenty-so br0tal.-Typical Pediphery fan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0MQiuc06jIU
