We asked to different musicians, producers, bloggers, journalists, label owners to make a short list of their best albums of this year. This is is the list curated by Alessandro Pogliani (Sentireascoltare).
I made this list using subtraction method. It has been facilitated by the fact that I have already made my own year-end list for Sentireascoltare, the webzine I work for: starting from the top I removed the albums included in the top 30 of the our staff list, to focus on the titles more underrated.

 

  • Demdike Stare – Cosmogony
  • Fleet Foxes – Crack-Up
  • Colin Stetson – All This I Do For Glory
  • Cornelius – Mellow Waves
  • Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner, Nico Muhly, James Mcalister – Planetarium
  • James Holden & The Animal Spirits – The Animal Spirits
  • Beck – Colors
There all kind of music tastes. Colored lines mix these seven works in a transverse way, from one extreme to the other of the music rainbow: experimentation and pop, electronics and guitars, krautrock memories and West Coast nostalgia, industrial and melodies, jazz and psychedelic lines. If you want dig them without prejudices. Give yourself the pleasure of the amazement
