Anyway, does anyone know what I’m talking about?
Don’t remember the name because I’m not cool, and I don’t have time to scour the boards for it, but it was like white text on a black background? Mostly text-based. Always had really good lists.

I think you mean The Wire https://www.thewire.co.uk

I don’t think they’ve made a best of list yet but they’re always pretty insightful.

Edit:

Nvm, here’s the list: https://www.yearendlists.com/2019/12...leases-of-2019

I’m OK with Blonde being #1, because that’s a great album, but I think they picked it mostly to avoid putting a Trump supporter at #1. I forget most of the rest of the list, but it was not great if I recall correctly.

Don’t think it was Wire, but ... maybe? I feel like it was decidedly less well-known than Wire but what do I know

50 Essential ‘Psych’ Albums 2013-2019

50 albums over the previous six years is an odd scope, but this list is well worth your time and attention.

I left the PROG list here because I figured it was the best place to do so......because who knew GONG had a new album out in 2019???

Actually this has some really Fucking good shit on it.
Strange pick for a #1 album, but I kinda dig the selection.
That 75 Dollar Bill record is crazy good indeed.

Moor Mother at #2 is also surprising, but maybe this was the site I was talking about.

Anyway thanks for sharing!!

Nifty coincidence: I once wrote in an e-mail that Bruce Springsteen's show at The Roxy on July 7, 1978 was the greatest thing since a Neanderthal figured out that banging two rocks together could make a bitchen, primal, liberating sound.

By the way, until recently, when that performance (Springsteen's, not the caveman's) finally got an official release via Nugs.net, the KMET-FM recording of it was endlessly bootlegged for decades, and rightly so. Even Clinton Heylin, in his book E Street Shuffle: The Glory Days Of Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band —where he doesn't give two shits about "being friends" with Bruce: he questions every artistic decision and even calls Jon Landau a "schmuck" (gotta love him)— praises it to the stratosphere.

Not that anyone here will care about what I just typed, but you fucking should.

From The Wire's Moor Mother cover story (issue 425, July 2019):

Quote:
A black hole is 'black' because its gravitational pull is so intense that nothing can escape it – not even light. The sonic equivalent of a black hole, I learn during my conversation with Camae Ayewa, is a fluid moving so fast it traps sound.

She describes the feeling of screaming in a sonic black hole: "The water's flowing faster than the speed of sound, so nothing's coming out."

For Ayewa, this nightmare image is an apt metaphor for the feeling of railing against an unjust system, with its police violence and mass incarceration and political corruption, that's so powerful it drowns out everything you throw at it. "We're here protesting and sharing stories, but when everything else is so loud, how do you penetrate through?"

This question is central to Analog Fluids Of Sonic Black Holes, a solo album under her Moor Mother name that she tells me she's just finished working on, due out later this year on the Don Giovanni label. It was also the title of her multimedia art exhibition in 2018 at The Kitchen in New York, where she was selected by Laurie Anderson as the recipient of the gallery's inaugural Emerging Artist Award. As a visual artist, Ayewa works in video, sculpture and collage, combining elements from disparate sources in order to draw connections across space and time to share the stories she speaks of. [...]
