Don't let your memes be dreams
Top 10 of the year so far:
1. Richard Dawson - Peasant
2. Girls Pissing on Girls Pissing - Songs of Sodomy and the Compost of Aethyr
3. Kubikmaggi - Things
4. Lingua Ignota - Let The Evil of His Own Lips Cover Him
5. Alameda Duo - The Luminous Guitar Craft of Alameda Duo
6. Flotation Toy Warning - The Machine That Made Us
7. Jun Konagaya - Memento Mori
8. Joshua Abrams - Simultonality
9. Pere Ubu- 20 Years in a Montana Missile Solo
10. Johan Berthling / Martin Küchen / Steve Noble - Threnody, at the Gates

Heard some hip hop from this year but nothing stood out. Overall a pretty mediocre year but some great experimental folk and modern classical albums really bump up the quality. I doubt a lot of this top 10 will change in the next 3 months

Edit: I guess I was wrong about the last sentence. A lot changed because of great reccs:

1. Andromeda Mega Express Orchestra - Vula
2. Richard Dawson - Peasant
3. Tim Buckley - Venice Mating Call
4. Lingua Ignota - All Bitches Die
5. Circuit des Yeux - Reaching for Indigo
6. Girls Pissing on Girls Pissing - Songs of Sodomy and the Compost of Aethyr
7. Kubikmaggi - Things
8. Lingua Ignota - Let the Evil of His Own Lips Cover Him
9. Alameda Duo - The Luminous Guitar Craft of Alameda Duo
10. Vein - Vein Plays Ravel

i haven't listened to much releases from this year but my AOTYSF is the new flotation toy warning album. i highly recommend you give it a listen to it if you haven't already. i also enjoyed iii by foxtails, 3 by tricot and flower boy by tyler the creator.

im also looking forward to the new bjork record which should be coming out in november.

Bradley Hathaway - Flesh Eater : folk / spoken word record. It's about a Christian man and his struggle with lust. I'm not religious myself and found things to enjoy: the honesty (it's like an album of confessions), and the intensity with which the lyrics match up with the music.
Holy shit this album is insane. Thanks a lot for this recc
i'm going to challenge myself to listen to 5 new albums a week in 2018. i want to learn more about music other than hip-hop

also i am going to write a review or at least a small blurb for em all
