After all the chaos of 2020, there’s some solace found in the fact that the artist who scored our Album of the Decade at the beginning of the year now receives our Album of the Year award at year’s end.

ACL 2020 ~ Top Ten Drone

Fewer drone releases came in this year than ever before.  The world was so dark, it seemed that even recording artists weren’t in the mood to record dark music.  But by the end of the year, we began to notice

Richard Skelton ~ These Charms May Be Sung Over A Wound

For a while, we knew what to expect from Richard Skelton. But there was a definite shift away from the wide-screen drone work towards the gathering of folk song-inspired pieces on Border Ballads. That was an unexpected flowering of acoustic

ACL 2019 ~ Top Ten Electronic

There’s some wild stuff going on in our Electronic section this year.  This year’s list includes a nocturnal symphony, an environmental plea, an ode to changing seasons, a mangled club set and a nearly unclassifiable band.  Many of these selections

Are you ready for some holiday cheer that has naught to do with the holidays?  After sifting through thousands of albums, we believe we’ve found the happiest music of 2019!  This is music for playpens, for beaches, for the open

WaqWaq Kingdom ~ Essaka Hoisa

Never judge a book by its cover. But the hyperactive artwork of this album does tell us much about the music. Both are a kaleidoscopic frenzy, where shards of Japanese tradition embed themselves in a body of global influences. We might
