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.
