We round up the year with an unquantified, unranked and unbelievably exceptional selection of 2017's musical offerings, alongside some older releases that we discovered or rediscovered throughout last year.
"Here are a bunch of tunes that have kept me from moving back to the countryside and trying to learn to play the harp..." Theo Kotz's gives us more weight than ever before, in Soon to be Innocent Fun #4.
Theo Kotz puts together the first in a series of features focussed on the rich, fertile well that is Dance Music; a little insight into some of the more electronic tunes that have been doing it for him this past month.
A selection of the albums, EPs and 12”s that we didn’t stop listening to throughout May and June. Some are discoveries of old, others are new releases, and a few are records we'd completely forgotten about.
Of special note this month: Rhythm Section International's latest release from SilentJay x Jace XL, Sacrifice; Omar S's modestly titled The Best; Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith's beautiful new LP, EARS; and Melt Yourself Down's latest release, Last Evenings on Earth. Recent discoveries such as Lou Ragland's Understand Each Other, Masayoshi Takanaka's weird and wonderful story, The Rainbow Goblins, and Hot Sound of Mauritius' enchanting Lalabye, are all also well worth checking out.
