Snune -17

Guess who's back, back again // Sniff is back, tell your friends. As usual 2017 stuff I jammed this past month only. How's your summer going so far my northern hemisphere friends? + Hit me up with some sweet recs will ya!
1Broken Thoughts

4.0 [sound design, IDM] "Broken Thoughts' near-flawless technique and sound design yields a stunning suite of themes and atmospheres."
2Mister Lizard

4.0 [spazz] this is the new cool. Shorter than Trumps temper (7 songs in under 6 minutes) this is for the kids who forgot what spazz should be like.
Symbolic Use of Light

4.0 [chill techno] this is my new favorite genre
4Hidden Orchestra
Dawn Chorus

4.0-3.5 [jazzy trip hop] a summers breeze upon thee chest. Somewhere between The Flashbulb and Innercity Ensemble and check this for summers best drift away stuff.
5Joni Void

4.0-3.5 [ambient, techno, sound design] a few questionable artistic choices in an otherwise awesome record.
6Lascive Dopamine
Latin American Tech

4.0-3.5 [latin house, techno, idm] A bit hesitant to give this a four but some tracks just go to hard. Positive surprise of the year this.
7 Oudeis
Theorema of Reality

3.5-4.0 [IDM] this is what really good IDM sounds like.
Through The Mirror

3.5-4.0 [noise, black metal, hardcore, experimental borderlining post metal and prog] Have you ever looked at japanese people and thought to yourself. Why can't they just be normal? Well I'm glad they're out there as long as it means they produce stuff as amazing as this. The highs on this record are through the roof but the lows on the other hand, way too much boring prog/experimental parts to keep me interested. Your Ghost is Dead and Torch Your House are highlights.
9Orphax & Machinefabriek

3.5 [drone] beautiful in it's simplicity
The Sunken Djinn

3.5 [stoner/doom metal] Sweden represent! Worth a spin or two or three or more for sure.
11Kati Briens Dream Band
Happy Music

3.5 [jazz] smelling of Miles Davis.
12Wren Kitz
Dancing on Soda Lake

3.5 [sadcore] this brings the feels quite heavily.

3.5 [jazz, modern classical] lots of variety and it's all done with great finesse
14Stevens / Dessner / Muhly / McAlister

3.5 [space pop] this album is too full of itself to not be likeable
15Palm (PA)
Shadow Expert

3.5 [math rock, alt rock] yes this is as good as people say it is.
16Bill Seaman
Erasures and Displacements

3.5 [ambient] Bill Seaman with a haunting experience to be cherished.
17Second Woman

3.5 [IDM] barely reaches above the 3.5 mark. Has a lot going on but not really a lot going for it.
18Hiro Kone
Love is the Capital

3.5 [techno, what else?] weird trip but nice trip. Check.
19Svartsyn (Sweden)
In Death

3.5 [black metal] cut the crap-black metal. It's real nice.

3.5 [IDM] more accessible than previous outings. Nothing that stands out tho.
Impossible Orbits

3.5 [grind, black metal] space themed, thick as a brick and so forth.
23Laptop Funeral
Pretty Punk

3.5 [lo-fi indie] so sad. I think you sad bois will dig. + NYP on bandcamp
New Tab

3.5 [ambient, wavemusic] the must summery slab of wave you'll hear all year.
25Martin Rev
Demolition 9

3.5-3.0 [experimental] the totally all over the place-y experimental album you never know you needed
Frequency is the New Ecstasy

3.5-3.0 [drone] freakish and haunting but also not earning it's length.
27Impetuous Ritual
Blight Upon Martyred Sentience

3.0 [death & doom] not the best in the genre but passable.
Too Many Winters

3.0 [sludge] cookiecutter sludge
29Max Richter
Out of the Dark Room

3.0 [soundtrack] soothing and stuff but too disjointed to work as a record much like most soundtracks usually are.

3.0 [up beat punk] with some influence from the indie pop side of post rock.
The Grand Annihilation

3.0 [sludge, black metal] seems like a couple of nerds who has listened to all the cool bands and badly want to be them

3.0 [kraut, post-punk] I can't shake the feeling that post punk is usually made by people who can't write decent songs and it always drags a lot because of that. Cut the fat and get angry all you post punkers!
Impassable Fears

3.0 [drone] would be better without Attila tbh.
Between Hope & Danger

3.0 [darkwave] pretty stale genre tbh
The Maldoror Chants: Hermaphrodite

3.0 [industrial, black metal, ritual] ye and nah in the same package
36Jefre Cantu-Ledesma
On The Echoing Green

3.0 [shoegaze, ambient] no vox on a shoegaze record?
37Chihei Hatakeyama

3.0 [ambient] nothing that sticks but it works

3.0 [chill ambient] Variations is an exploration of the Korg Mono/Poly Synthesizer.
39Hortlax Cobra

3.0 [electronic dark pop] weird but also in a way not weird. Check if you dig this genre
40Arve Henriksen
Towards Language

3.0 [jazz] starts off strong but it's hard for me to keep focused through this even tho it has quite a short run time.
41The Selva
The Selva

3.0 [experimental, jazz] if you dig improvisation
42Ted Hearne
Sound from the Bench

3.0 [choir and arrangement] cool concept backed with drums and guitar. You should check
…Of the Dark Light

3.0 [death metal] it's passable for someone not familiar with their top work I guess.
44Chuck Johnson

3.0 [steel guitar post rock, ambient] quite the chill album on a monday evening
More Fast Songs About the Apocalypse

3.0 [punkish] catchy actually.
46Timber Timbre
Sincerely, Future Pollution

3.0 [dark shoegaze, gothic] with weird funk influences
47White Ward
Futility Report

2.5 [black metal, nonsense] under piles of Careless Whisper sax gimmicks and bad genre bending some decent black metal is to be found.
48Chastity Belt
I Used To Spend So Much Time Alone

2.5 [shoegaze] super unexciting
The Future in Whose Eyes?

2.5 [progressive metal, djent-ish, mathcore-ish] I don't know why an outspoken hater of progressive metal like me even try this. Instumentation ranges from kinda cool to poorly bland technical wankery. And you know if an album features Spencer it's going to suck big time. Ngl Weavers of Woe is a cool track tho.
50Wax Fang
Victory Laps

2.5 [classic rock] why am I listening to a records worth of classic rock in 2017?
51Alma (AUS)

2.5 [folk] boring folk music.
