Kind of off topic, but I've been looking for an app designed for making lists with commentary and pictures, and sharing them on the web. There appears to be nothing that doesn't suck. Best I can find is Lystee as far as apps go, and Lystee sucks. Using spotify or iTunes to create a list of songs from the year's best albums seems like the best bet, but still, it's far from perfect.

1. Lots of great electronic stuff this year, or maybe I'm just getting more and more into it (Raime, Vatican Shadow, Silent Servant, Voices from the Lake, Lee Gamble, Terrence Dixon, Andy Stott, etc...)

2. Lots of great stuff from Belgium (I liked releases from Alkerdeel, Sylvester Anfang II (and related, like Gonzalez & Steenkiste, Sayona etc), Prairie, Köhn, Orphan Fairytale, Floris Vanhoof, Hare Akedod...).

3. favourite labels: Blackest Ever Black, MIE Music, Cardinal Fuzz, Hospital Productions

5. Happy new year

Can I ask a serious question? Many folks here continually diss my taste in music, but honestly, I try to find new bands by youtubing the bands many of y'all post here and I have come to one glaring conclusion. Since when the fuck did so many Sonic Youth fans get into bad, Euro-club mix techno and electronica? I mean that shit isn't exactly bastard noise yo

Hah! I've actually wondered the same thing. Your taste in music is fine, and you're funny as fuck.

One of my NY resolutions is to say more spontaneous nice things.

01. Ahleuchatistas - Heads Full Of Poison
02. Mark Van Hoen - The Revenant Diary
03. Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!

Of course, I left off all things Sonic......normally don't like offering "best of" because I hear so little, but the above listed did stand out to me in 2012.

i've been supprised by how many lists (online and in magazines and stuff) have left off Animal Collective. I've seen "top 50" lists which dont mention Centepede Hz at all. I guess it might be cool not to like them anymore but i think it's a really good album with some amazing tunes. There was a load of buzz about the album when it came out, but people seem to have forgoten it.

(or did i just dream it?)

I agree. Their 2004-2010 output was always in the top five of everything. But I don't even think Potchfork or Magnet included them this year. I think it's a rally good album too, though its probably not in my top five of the year. It's definitely in or near the top ten, for sure.

Also, Deerfhoof released a great album this year, and it's been noticeably absent from a lot of the lists you'd imagine it would fare well on.

great list mister startur

--

amongst the albums that i would say impressed me most, in no order:

moon wiring club - today bread, tomorrow dreams
actress - rip
lukid - lonely at the top
pye corner audio - sleep games
dean Blunt and inga Copeland - black is beautiful
laurel halo - quarantine
cooly g - playin me (anything released on hyperdub this year really)
dan habarnam - from the known
yeasayer - fragrant world
chairlift - something
burial - truant
jam city - classical curves
asc & sam kdc - decayed society

probably forgetting a lot - it really was a fantastic year in terms of electronic music albums. any rinse mix cd released this year should be mentioned as well - they were all great. the latest one, mixed by t.williams, is probably the best though.
