Top albums: 2019

100 Gecs - 1000 Gecs (maybe the most famous tree in album art history?)
  1. Shlohmo - Share (Music from the HBO film)
    I’m so not usually a regular listener of soundtracks but this year I kept coming back to Shlohmo’s captivating soundtrack for ‘Share’. Since 2012’s ‘Vacation EP’, the LA producer’s sound has taken on a more functional instrumental hip hop direction which misses out on some of the brilliance of the weirder parts of his 2009–11 output. This release takes me right back to being 15 and listening to songs like ‘Sink’ or ‘Ghosts pt. 2’, albeit, this time, Shlohmo’s sound is more cinematic and emotive than anything I’ve heard from him before.

I write sins not tragedies. Music/film/theory found in the trashcan.
