We asked to different musicians, producers, bloggers, journalists, label owners to make a short list of their best albums of this year. This is the list curated by Canadian Vancouver-based musician and composer Scott Morgan aka Loscil.
Deaf Center – Low Distance. Delicate and microscopic, it pulls you into its beautifully intricate sonic cosmos.
Eluvium – Virga I. Thick, warm blankets of acoustic reverie.
Kali Malone – The Sacrificial Code. Raw, breathing acoustic organ that finds its way into your bloodstream.
Chihei Hatakeyama – Forgotten Hill. Distant, foggy memories and dreams return as shimmering soundscapes.
Rafael Anton Irisarri – Solastalgia. Harmonic monoliths of catharsis moving at the pace of mountains.
