A Pamyu 2013.5

The year started out pretty bad but turned out to be just as good as last year around June/July. The J-Pop releases on here are all absolutely essential. Lots of techno-ish stuff that I enjoyed as well as a couple genres I didn't really touch on before. Of the big releases that aren't covered on here I enjoyed Daft Punk and to an extent Autechre. The rest was mehh or bad. Except for The Knife, that one I didn't listen to yet. 4.5: 3. 4: 14. 3.5: 35.
52Fearless Leader

Math-Rock / Post-Hardcore . elephantREVOLUTION recommended me this. Typical bandcampcore, except good. http://fearlessleader.bandcamp.com/
51A City Sorrow Built
Motions


Screamo / Post-Rock . BlueW's Band. Won't change Screamo for years to come but is a worthwhile addition to a genre I like. And it's free so get it http://acitysorrowbuilt.bandcamp.com/album/motions

41June Paik
June Paik (EP)

38Omar S
Thank You For Letting Me Be Myself


Deep House . Each Track for itself is incredible but it's a bit long overall. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRbk4djczcY

Behind the Green Door


Techno . oi m8 dis b sum proper bangers. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=ENVeEBbGk00

Kveikur


Post-Rock . I like their new approach on this one. It's fun, it works. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aV2IkSpRPtU
35Ensemble Pearl
Ensemble Pearl


Drone . Sunn O))) / Boris mix playing slow, droney stuff. Who would've guessed that. I can hear more of a psychedelic edge on here though than on the Boris LPs I've listened to so far so that's pretty cool. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=h9XQTGJHDY4
34Bvdub
At Night This City Becomes the Sea


Ambient Techno . This isn't liked around here or on RYM but I really enjoy it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wbzrvq6Nh74
33Container
Treatment


Techno . Not as good as other Techno stuff from this list but still very much a banger. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xx6he432dws
32Naomi Chomsky
Iron Bird Meditation


American Primitivism / Folk . Music to meditate to. Duhh. http://kiksgfr.bandcamp.com/album/iron-bird-meditation-kiksgfr005
31Clipping
Midcity


Noise / Hip-Hop . Dudes spitting non-sense over noise. Get Money. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5RVbch7rEg
30ENA
Bilateral


Minimal/Dub Techno / Drum and Bass / Abstract . Some of the weirdest electronic I've heard so far. Extremely minimal. Didn't really enjoy this at first but it's growing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VmgvMQFV6k
29Justin Timberlake
The 20/20 Experience


Pop . I liked this a lot and rated it very highly but if only half of your songs are actually listenable it doesn't help much that they're god tier. So it dropped quite a bit. Still a great album. So stop holding that wall, and ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hntD7Xb4TjE
28Ludovico Einaudi
In a Time Lapse


Neo-classical . Not groundbreaking or really spectacular, just nice to listen to. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BsEKfdv_kkg
27Emptyset
Material


Dark Ambient / Drone . Just gotta love those dudes. Even though this falls off a bit compared to their other works. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDAktJ3uTLY
26Naibu
Fall


Drum and Bass . Fun DnB EP. Probably underrating this quite a bit actually. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7Q6RWYFZ7g
25Anne Guthrie and Richard Kamerman
Sinter


Field Recordings / EAI . Origami sends me right to drool central. Nothing on YT as far as I can tell.
24Geskia!
Silent of Light


IDM . For when the light is just very quiet. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=A9zkaDHJQas
23Jefre Cantu-Ledesma
Devotion


Drone / Noise . If you are looking for sheer beauty in drones and noise, there you go. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3qluhgMEjM
22Okkyung Lee
Ghil


Avant-Garde / Classical / Noise . Okkyung Lee makes noisey stuff with her Cello. This album is her worst by quite a bit in my opinion, better check out 'Nihm' first if you are interested. http://youtu.be/vv9Wv6YnL44
21Felix K
Flowers Of Destruction


Drum and Bass / Abstract . Took me a bit to like it. Hard to understand what's even going on at first, but gets better with every listen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZrfq-ATfBk dem hats
20Julianna Barwick
Nepenthe


Ambient . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kr0_RvJZNbo Full album with time signatures, check One Half
19Colin Stetson
New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light


Avant-Garde Jazz . What are they doing on sputnik today? "The 15 minute title track raised the standards of the whole thing to such heights it all imploded into one mediocre album." I don't completely agree with Baseline - this is still a very good album - but she has a point. Titletrack is far better than the rest. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlPg-g2vP8U"
18Soap and Skin
Sugarbread


Darkwave / Art-Pop . Hope to hear more from her in 2013. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xUFjl8LzmY
17Volor Flex
Unlit


Dubstep . Extremely well-crafted wubs. This stuff often gets boring on album length, but Volor Flex manages to keep it interesting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2MlFfvTkXc
16Delos
s/t


Screamo . Screamo of the straight kind. NYP: http://delossucks.bandcamp.com/
15Beneath

Asteroids/Over My Head


Dubstep . 8.3 Best New Sub-bass Wankery. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=yzXxZppdvbQ
13Gobby
Fashion Lady


Techno . Straight forward Techno with a bit of a noise/industrial-ish edge like the stuff Blawan/Karenn put out. According to Maestro del Tornado his other stuff is also very good, but haven't listened yet. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=eUZEubKp-o4
12Etsuko Yakushimaru
Radio Onsen Eutopia


J-Pop . Very different to the electronic heavy approach of Nakata or what Momoclo are doing. When I listened to this I wanted to 5 it after the first song. The rest of the album was somewhat disappointing as a follow-up to Noruniru though and only after giving it a second chance just now I realised how good it is overall. If you click on any of the sample links, please let it be this one. SOTY. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FzIhjpceeO8
11Run The Jewels

DIFFICULT


Noise Rock / Hip-Hop . Drummer of 1994! (mehh Emo/Math/HC or whatever band) doing noisy Percussion + Synth stuff. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=1TWO4j1TU3M
8Momoiro Clover Z
5th Dimension


Art Pop . This dropped quite a bit for me ever since I stopped going all crazy everytime I listen to it and started realizing that the production is beyond awful. Instead of Album of the Century this is just another 4, R.I.P. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tngTXAYh0H4
7Jakob Ullmann
Fremde Zeit Addendum 4


Lowercase . Doesn't get much more minimal than this.
6Laura Stevenson

Free Jazz . Don't let the Free Jazz tag fool you, this is incredibly easy to get into and if you haven't tried yet then what are you even doing in 2013. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqoBUuA8g1o
3Sorrow (UK)
Dreamstone


Garage . Sorrow improved on his style in just the right way. Definitely bleeps of the year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsW2XpV_yXo
2Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
Nandacollection


J-Pop . 11/10 goddess epitome of a waifu. Mi's so hard, my Pamyu got all Pon Pon. Would basically be AOTY if not for 4chan. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=jcIOg_m-bp4 Music Video of the Year. The DJ is hella 'bout that life.
1Ling Tosite Sigure
i'mperfect


Indie Rock / Post-Hardcore . It doesn't matter what they do, it's going to be amazing. My avg Ling Tosite rating: 4.5. Some fucker on /mu/ called them generic j-rock. I got all anal ravaged and put them on 1. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=8UUyzJvSIsI
