What are yours? Please don't list 50 hihi

I really enjoyed:

Black Noise 2084 - DJ Khalab
Semillero - Dengue Dengue Dengue
Coco Sugar - Young Fathers
Persona - Rival Consoles

I've been quite remiss in checking out new music this year but one superb record that I have enjoyed thoroughly was 'Above all dreams' by Abul Mogard, as mentioned in a topic a little further down this section of the forum.

Think everything else I've bought this year has been reissues - I may be becoming a curmudgeon.
Trilo
Reissues are fair game!

Which ones did you enjoy?

Laurie Spiegel - The Expanding Universe
Joe Henderson - The Elements (featuring Alice Coltrane)
Anne Briggs - Sing a song for you

All really floated my boat. Keep meaning to get my hands on the new Eliane Radigue box set that recently came out.

Wow. I guess I'll have to check out that Abul Mogard album as it's already been mentioned thrice!
wiperactive
Chris Carter's Chemistry Lessons (CCCL) Volume One.
dubonaire
And I will mention it a fourth time.

Abul Mogard - Above All Dreams
Jon Hopkins - Singularity
Brett Naucke - The Mansion
Djrum - Portrait With Firewood

Objekt - Cocoon Crush... I found there were quite a few repeated motifs and I think he will still develop as an artist. I like it, but it's not a favorite.
The Junglechrist

Gyroscope
Suuns (514 represent!) - Felt

Pitchfork has been giving these guys a hard time since the beginning but they're great. This is their fourth album and I think a lot of people here would really like them. The synth player (Max Henry) is on another level!

Big ups for Jon Hopkins and Helena Hauff here too. But I've also found myself listening to a lot more RnB influenced stuff this year too. Fatima's album on Eglo is amazing, as is Jorja Smith's debut (and she is soooo great live)

The one album that I've revisited the most this year was Skee Mask's Compro. It's just an excellent piece of work that covers so many styles and variety of electronic music. The sound of the album is really organic to me and just works so solidly as a collection of tracks. It has a really nice narrative.
Reality Checkpoint
Janek Schaefer - What Light There Is Tells Us Nothing

William Basinski & Lawrence English - Selva Oscura

Tape Loop Orchestra - Lead Us Into The Light (and all other TLO releases!)

Donnacha Costello - Stay Perfectly Still (This is probably my favourite of the year.)
Licudi
Another vote for Chris Carter's Chemistry Lessons. Also enjoyed Rubellan's CD issue of Black Mass if that counts. And Lana Del Rey's Venice Bitch is Moog sketchy.

The new Dubstar is more of the same, which isn't a criticism. Seeing Steve Hillier's tweets and 'contibutions' to SonicTalk I'm pleased not to be putting any more cash in his pocket.
Spectromat
Factory Floor's "A soundtrack for a film" is on constant rotation here love

Definitely one of my faves this year!

I cannot think of a better rock band than Suuns.
PF has gone pop/r&b.

Thanks ! Yess love dub techno. Currently listening to CV313 - Analog Oceans, probably could have made the list as well. All the stuff echospace has put our recently (the Radius reissue last year in particular) have been fabulous trips.

I love these list, it's great to discover a ton of stuff.
