2014

 

The year that was streaming online, or the year that was no longer physical.

 

The Top 4


1. WATTERThis World

Featuring members of post-rock instrumental group Grails and the seminal Slint, this took me by surprise for its lingering touches of icy melancholy. It feels longer than it actually is.


2. EARTHPrimitive & Deadly

Additional vocals from Mark Lanegan and a woman I've never heard of set to slow, lumbering steam train ride music from a spaghetti western, adds another dimension to Dylan Carlson's creation.


3. SWANSTo Be Kind

Monumental, abrasive, life-swallowing, choke-hold filled set of songs all wrapped up in a world of everything. Cathartic and brilliant.


4. BONG – Stoner Rock

Timeless meditative hypnotic ritual ancient long amplified, lost in a desert, exhausted from the heat.
