I'd go with Long Division or I Could Live in Hope first where Low's concerned, but Things is certainly a good record.

Hope you enjoy.

Glad you're digging it. Despite its regrettable name, I'd suggest looking into Chi Vampires next.

Another important recording, though this one is usually considered daunting on account of its runtime (upwards of 160 minutes if memory serves). I'm not a huge fan, as her work feels a bit dry and...

Junior Kimbrough - Sad Days, Lonely Nights

Junior's finest slab of woozy electric blues, laying down the groove early and only pulling you further in as the tracks stagger by. You eventually lose...

Because of the ambient/whatever thread, Ellen Fullman's Through Glass Panes.

Oliveiros is pretty much essential. I'm probably alone in this, but I think I dig Accordion & Voice the most. Perhaps not as refined as some of her later work, but there's something very pastoral...

Desert blues is great, definitely. Tinariwen were super consistent early on, but I just couldn't get into Tassili. Felt too polished and the guests (chiefly the TV on the Radio dudes) really watered...

There's certainly ambient material out there with vocals, but they're used more as an additional layer of atmosphere than a hook. Steve Roden's Speak No More About the Leaves is one the finer...

No idea what any of that means.

If you like your drone on the more abrasive side, look into Birchville Cat Motel. Beautiful Speck Triumph is a masterpiece and its 36-minute title track is a slow-building, widescreen stunner that'll...

Substrata's an out-and-out classic to be sure. Have you looked into other Biosphere albums? I've always thought that the jazzy turn he took on Dropsonde was an underappreciated, clever change of...

Followed that up nicely too. Visiting This World and Devotion are both really solid.

Anyway, favorites from 2013? Genre quibbles aside -- these dabble in drone, minimalism, etc. -- I especially dug...

Late reply. That one's where they really honed in on the lounge/space age pop thing, so probably the following two efforts (Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night and The First of the...

Anyone familiar with Dambala? Picked up Azania today, but I'm not sure what to make of it on the whole. Singer's nondescript voice kind of puts a damper on the stellar dub production.

Have a...

Dadawah - Peace and Love

Perfection. Bottomless bass grooves, spiraling shards of kind-of-psych guitar, tribal hand percussion, and the sort of commanding, authoritarian voice that will bully your...

Some of Alice's work is tremendous, yes. The 70-71 records are stone-cold classics to be sure, but I might actually spin Turiya Sings even more frequently. Meditative, hypnotic set.

Solid album, but it feels a bit...safe. Or maybe rather not quite as exploratory as previous works. Granted, it's awfully hard to follow up Apocalypse, which I believe is his best under the Callahan...

Nice to see someone high on Ascension. Awfully polarizing album, though I suppose most freer material is. Coltrane could not only hold his own with the most ferocious avant players, he boasted the...
