Pit Gets Disengaged

Tricked you. It is 2020 release log.
1Arms and Sleepers
Safe Area Earth


Business as usual.

LP
INSTRUMENTAL HIP-HOP/DOWNTEMPO
3/5
2Bcee and Blu Mar Ten

Above average liquid d&b artists making average liquid d&b music.

EP
LIQUID DRUM & BASS

Fucks ahrd

LP
INSTRUMENTAL HIP-HOP

4Elliot Moss
A Change In Diet


If the sound of Bon Iver and James Blake spit-roasting Thom Yorke is appealing to you then by all means.

LP
INDIETRONIC/AMBIENT POP
2.5/5

Does not fuck at all. Smashes floppy in fact.

Definitely fucks. Probably doesn't do anything but fuck and maybe smonk while thinkin bout fuckin'.

LP

Smashes janky like a spazz.

EP

8Mick Jenkins
The Circus


Think Jenkins is incapable of matching the quality of The Water[s] ever again but the beats are aight.

EP
Hip-Hop
3/5
9Alice Boman
Dream On


Sans everything about EP II + Skisser that made those tracks compelling. Boman is a solid Scranton 5 tho.

EP
Chamber Pop
2.5/5
10Madlib and Oh No
The Professionals


Nice to not have FreddGibbs but Oh No isn't very exciting either so it's a lukewarm exclusion at best.

LP
Hip-Hop
3/5
11Holy Fuck
Deleter


Haven't thought about these dudes since around 2007 but apparently they exist still. Album verges on being too hipstery at times but its solid, Luxe is a very strong opener especially. Backhalf starts to lose its inertia hard.

LP
Indietronic
3/5
12Georgia
Seeking Thrills


When she flops, she flops, But songs like Started Out, About Work The Dancefloor, and Feel It make it well worth it.

LP
Synthpop
3.5/5
13Oval
Scis


This has some nice sounds and textures. A shame they are so infrequently arranged in a truly gratifying manner.

LP
IDM/Electroacoustic
3/5
14Jon Kennedy
Mmxx


Some truly classic late '90s early '00s Downtempo/Trip-Hop sounds here. It's insanely cathartic to hear something in this vein sound so fresh.

LP
Trip-Hop/Downtempo/Drum & Bass
4/5
15Moon Hooch
Life on Other Planets


A technically proficient and adventurous enough album that is hard not to hate thanks to how utterly devoid of any sort of captivating emotion or tastefulness it is.

LP
Nu Jazz/Jazz Fusion
2/5
16Mura Masa
R.Y.C


Mura Masa is undecided on which irrelevant preejaculatory 00's music fad for eighth graders he wants to be so he be them all...

LP
K like some of these songs straight up sound like Bowling For Soup while others sound like Tycho, and others still sound like Carly Rae. Genre tagging this would be an insult to coherent music.
1.5/5
17of Montreal
UR FUN


Too kitsch and far too little too late.

LP
Synthpop/Indie Pop
2/5
18Bohren und der Club of Gore
Patchouli Blue


Someone wrote a soundoff about this band trying to be Angelo Badalamenti and its probably one of the most accurate things ever written. This sounds like a collection of Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me B-sides slowed down 50% more and chucked in a Target bin.

Dark Jazz
3/5
19Craven Faults
Erratics and Unconformities


Sounds like an intersection somewhere between Lorn and BoC

Ambient/Minimal Techno
3.5/5
20Jamie Isaac, Nosaj Thing
3


Some of the best material from either party in a while.

EP
Contemporary R&B
3.5/5
21Joe Corfield
Old Salt (Inspired 'The Outlaw Ocean'...)


Fuck this bops. Those snare snaps are just OOMPH. Wish this was an LP.

EP
Instrumental Hip-Hop
3.5/5
22Long Arm
Silent Opera


A very special album right here. Probably one of the first of 2020 that I can tell will retain a lot of value beyond this year.

LP
Downtempo/Nu Jazz
4/5
23OTHERLiiNE
OTHERLiiNE


I generally have high expectations of Lil Silva and middling expectations of George FitzGerald. The end result of their collaboration falls somewhere between my expectations for both artists individually.

I've seen this listed as both an LP and an EP so I'll let everyone make up their minds first.
Funky
3.5/5
24Machinedrum, Holly
Berry Patch


Much of this is a little on the heavy side for me. You know what I mean. You're gonna get some k-hole robot diarrhea bullshit here but if thats your jam.... here you go.

EP
Drum & Bass/Halftime
3/5
25Nicola Cruz, Pigmaliao
Nicola Cruz / Pigmaliao


This split borrows similarly from South American traditional music and Electronic as other work from Cruz or Jaar, but where the former often emphasizes the more downtempo/folktronic styling of Digital Cumbia and the latter more prominently electronic - Microhouse for instance - this split feels like it belongs in a similarly influenced sub-sphere of Electro and Acid House.

EP
Fusion. Ass. Bullshit.
4/5
26Cage (USA-NY)
Death Miracles


Dude is still an absolute icon for teenage suburban white kids who rap about their feelings. Dude is fuckin' spare-parts.

LP
Truly Dick Shrivelin'

27Kesha
High Road


The 'High Road' must have been what she was taking when she got her mom to create a defamatory lawsuit to get her out of her contract with Sony...

If excitable companion robots having a cordial discussion via farts is your jam hit this up.

LP

30Underground Canopy, Bluestaeb, S. Fidelity
Bluestaeb & S. Fidelity Present...


Live jazz/instrumental hip hop group recorded and produced by Bluestaeb and S. Fidelity. Pleasant stuff.
Nothing more, nothing less.

LP
Instrumental Hip-Hop/Jazz

31A.A.L. (Against All Logic)
2017-2019


2012-2017 was great but this transcends any of that content in terms of uniqueness and personality. For the most part, the idea of this being just a collection of tracks recorded over a certain period makes its cohesion and narrative quality seem inexplicable.

LP
Tech House/IDM
4.5/5
32Black Light Smoke
Heat Flash


More of the same dystopian coldwave infused tech house Black Light Smoke is known for. Still waiting for him to make another song as incredible as Firefly.

EP
Tech House
3.5/5
33Christopher Rau
Mad Time Pressure


Mostly a resounding "meh".

EP
Deep House/Techno
3/5
34King Krule
Man Alive!


Haven't heard this yet but it's a 5

LP
5-core
5/5
35Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats
Unlocked


Further proof that Zeldonk Three Bazillion's quality is entirely carried on the shoulders of his production choices.

EP
Hip-Hop
3.5/5
36Farah
Law of Life (2020)


This same one song just gets better every time she releases it so why the fuck not...

EP
Synth-Pop/Italo-Disco
5/5
37Kelpe
Run With the Floating, Weightless Slowness


An album that constantly tries to save itself from the boredom of its coma-inducing twinkliness with mildly interesting instrumentation, electronics and synths. The result is... occasionally quite beautiful and pleasant but not much beyond that.

LP
Ambient/Modern Classical/Field Recording
3/5
38Justin Bieber
Changes


Kind of nice that he put all the shitty slow-bops at the end of the album making them easy to avoid. And there are no shitty piano ballads so thats a plus. Album would be his best if it ended with Get Me, for whatever it's worth.

LP
Pop
2.5/5
39Martyn

All two whole songs are good. Especially Nerve Centers

EP

EP

41Rejoicer
Spiritual Sleaze


Energy Dreams was more engaging, some of this slogs. Pretty good FlyLo-core regardless.

LP
Downtempo/Glitch Hop
3.5/5
42Soft Glas
Stunned


I mean it's not terrible but the absolutely tragic quality dip between this/Orange Earth and the phenomenal Late Bloom/Dos releases is one of most disappointing things since Progmasters penis.

LP
Softness
2.5/5
43Tantsui
Untouchable


Buh-bruh is trying to hard to be palatable these days. He'll never make something as danke as Planet of The Apes with this attitude.

EP
Deep House

44Ten Walls

Fuuuuck wahaaaaaateeevurrr broooooo

EP

.....It's a tentative 4

LP
4-core
4.5/5
46Grimes
Miss Anthropocene


Shockingly cohesive and unshitty in contrast to Art Angels, easily warrants a generous 3. Still the cringiest, smelliest, crustiest fuck in the music industry tho.

LP
Smelly white girl shit
3/5
47Agnes Obel
Myopia


Raises my estrogen levels

LP
Chamber Bop

Never would have thought ~ambient~ would be the direction A&S would need to go to freshen up his sound... Great little piece.

EP
Ambient/Modern Classical
3.5/5
49Dauwd
Psssh 001


Poppin' his new label off strong

EP
Deep House
3.5/5
50Elaquent
Forever Is A Pretty Long Time


A mixed bag of guests and a mixed bag of beats. A couple big bangers though.

LP
Hip-Hop
3/5
51Gacha Bakradze
Extensions


Toulouse is really really good, the other 3 are average for Bakradze.

EP
Breaks/Ambient Techno
3/5
52HMLTD
West of Eden


I kind of dig Mikey's Song but this is mostly some hipster-ass novelty garbage with an identity crisis... which means a lot of you would probably dig it.

LP
No
2.5/5
53Infinite Scale
The Value of Accessibility


Big feltch energy

EP
IDM
2.5/5
54Laurence Guy
The Sun Is Warm and Directly Above You


Disappointingly straightforward little EP. It's 'nice' but... a bit of a redundant addition to his discog.

EP

Sorry WatchItExplode, this did not give me life. Found this supremely vapid tbqh.

LP

LP
