2014: albums of the year
Objekt – Flatland [Pan]
To quote a good friend of mine in IRC, “what is happening”.
FKA twigs – LP1 [Young Turks]
Well, what is happening here is that a supremely talented youngster is shaping the world in her image – as it should be.
Caribou – Our Love
This is the least consistent of the last two Caribou albums – the sloppy dance tropes can go, but the but the life-reaffirming high points are so high.
Honors out to: Plaid – Reachy Prints, Forest Swords – Engravings, UNESCO’s Anthology of African Music, and Bach’s Six Partitas, as played by Glenn Gould.
