Great 2014 Electronic Albums That I Didn't Discover Until 2015
Every year, it takes me at least one additional year to catch up. Aphex Twin and Flying Lotus had big releases in 2014. Here are a few others I didn't notice right away.
- •Actress - GhettovilleThere are so many layers of analog fuzz and mysterious circuit magic, it stops being obvious what's a machine and what's organic.
- •Clark - ClarkIf you like heavy moog indulgence, this album delivers.
- •Andy Stott - Faith in StrangersIn which terrifying unintelligible girl voices are overlaid with monolithic drum hits that are too big to fit inside your brain.
- •Baths - Ocean DeathMore subtle than his older stuff, and just as well crafted.
- •Shabazz Palaces - Lese MajestyIt's hip hop, but the kind you need acid for.
- •Gunnar Haslam - Mirrors and CopulationFeels like you're peering through cigarette smoke in a sketchy bar in Blade Runner. Takes 20+ minutes to gather its momentum.
