AMF - Favorite Albums/Songs of 2018: LIST THREAD

Post by notbrianeno » Wed Jan 02, 2019 6:22 am

Hello all!

Time for the annual poll of our favorite music from the last year! In the following thread, please post your favorite songs and albums of 2018. The formula used will be (50*(1+8))/(position+8).

Song Eligibility:

-Any song released within the calendar year either as a single or a track from an album.

-High-profile re-releases, provided the song did not make a previous countdown (e.g., "Blackstar", despite being on an album this year, made 2015's EOY and was ineligible during the 2016 poll)

-2017 singles from 2018 albums are fair game, provided they follow the above rule.

Album Eligibility:

-Albums released within the 2018 calendar year.

-Any major re-release of a previously unacclaimed album

-Burial Clause: EPs count as albums.

10 songs or albums are minimum to compete in the poll, and a maximum of 50 songs or albums will be counted. However, feel free to include more than that if you feel inclined to give attention to some honorable mentions. Commentary is encouraged, and will be utilized in the rollout of results.

Deadline to submit lists is by the end of February 15th.

Happy Voting!

So for clarification, are EP’s fair game for album rankings or is that just for certain EP’s like Burial’s?

Can I include this song? It's not from 2018 but due to "This is America" controversy, got some hype during last year

Since it’s relatively obscure before and became “high profile” this year I’ll allow it if no one has any objections.

Same question and scenario for me about Sufjan Stevens’ ”Mystery of Love”, which is Gillingham’s number 1.

I'll allow "Night Shift" to be eligible given Historian's release in 2018, and the lack of a charting appearing in last years poll.

"Mystery of Love" charted at #96 last year and is ineligible in this years poll.

"Delicate" was released as a single from reputation this year, and was not mentioned in last years poll at all. I'll allow its inclusion this year.

So is Mo Bamba OK for this year? Regardless of general opinion on its merit? (I like it, personally, otherwise I wouldn't be asking).

Definitely, it has appeared on several EOY publication lists already I believe, and is eligible from all of the above criteria

Are the Car Seat Headrest songs being allowed given their earlier versions from 2011?

Absolutely. I am surprised that "New Light" has only appeared on two out of the seven lists thus far. Two #1 votes should help it to make a final placing on the 2018 list. Hopefully!!

Since none of these songs charted in 2011 to my knowledge, and they are a high profile re-release that has charted on numerous EoY lists I will allow it.

This is not in order, or final -- I'm just putting it out there in case people are looking for some other listening experiences before we finalize. I don't have songs listed yet either.

This has been one of the toughest years ever for me to rank albums...there are just so many of high quality, from disparate genres, and the quality is very similar (even when the music itself is not). Also, what an amazing year for jazz, who would've thunk.

I've separated these albums generally; again, there is no rank yet...

CREAM OF THE CROP

Gurrumul | Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow)
Mary Halvorson | Code Girl
Ben Lamar Gay | Downtown Castles Can Never Block the Sun

REALLY GREAT, OR IMPERFECT BUT WITH FANTASTIC HIGHLIGHTS

Kelly Moran | Ultraviolet
Kamasi Washington | Heaven & Earth
Sons of Kemet | Your Queen is a Reptile
Anna Von Hausswolf | Dead Magic
Rosalía | El mal querer

Julia Holter | Aviary
Maisha | There Is a Place
Avantdale Bowling Club | Avantdale Bowling Club
Fatouma Tadiawara | Fenfo

VERY GOOD, AM RELISTENING AS SOME COULD MOVE UP

Sarah Davachi | Gave in Rest
Eiko Ishibashi | The Dream My Bones Dream
Clau Aniz | Filha de Mil Mulheres
Janelle Monae | Dirty Computer
Makaya McCraven | Universal Beings
Daughters | You Won't Get What You Want

Gazelle Twin | Pastoral
Spiritualized | And Nothing Hurt
Lea Bertucci | Metal Aether

Laurel Halo | Raw Silk Uncut Wood
SOPHIE | Oil of Every Pearl's Un-Insides
Kacey Musgraves | Golden Hour
Hailu Mergia | Lala Belu

boygenius | boygenius EP
Georgia Anne Muldrow | Overload
Nils Frahm | All Melody

NOT QUITE IN THE TOP LEAGUES BUT QUALITY STUFF HERE

Mitski | Be the Cowboy
Suede | The Blue Hour
Jlin | Autobiography
Kali Uchis | Isolation
Park Jiha | Communion
Szun Waves | New Hymn to Freedom
Dedekind Cut | Tahoe
Jon Hopkins | Singularity
Alexandra Streilski | Inscape

Nordra | Pylon II
Sleep | The Sciences
Tirzah | Devotion
Jean Grae & Quelle Chris | Everything's Fine

The Body | I Have Fought Against It, But I Can't Any Longer
Chris Corsano & Bill Orcutt | Brace Up!
pinkshinyultrablast | Miserable Miracles
Grouper | Grid of Points
Fire! | The Hands



Also, I would be remiss if I did not list out the best new classical compositions that are available to hear. These were both written and premiered in 2018 to qualify; they are not on albums to my knowledge, but can be heard online.

Anna Meredith | Five Telegrams

Five Telegrams may actually be the single best thing I heard all year. This is the classical side of Anna Meredith, for those who liked the Varmints album from a couple years ago

Tansy Davies | What Did We See?
Christopher Cerrone | Concerto for Violin and Orchestra ("Breaks and Breaks")
Roshanne Etezady | Diamond Rain
Suzanne Farrin | Hypersea


Also, these compositions were apparently written and in some cases premiered in 2018, but I've not been able to find any versions online to hear. I'm very much intrigued and plan to hunt them down as soon as they become available.

John Luther Adams | Become Desert
Steve Reich | Music for Ensemble and Orchestra
Missy Mazzoli | Proving Up
Caroline Shaw | Seven Joys
Samantha Fernando | Formations
Eriks Esenvalds | The Pleiades
Roxanna Panufnik | Songs of Darkness, Dreams of Light
Melody Eötvös | Ruler of the Hive
Dobrinka Tabakova | Tectonic
Sarah Kirkland Snider | Mass for the Endangered
Helen Grime | Bright Travellers
Philip Cashian | Piano Concerto ('The Book of Ingenious Devices')
Roberto Rusconi | String Quartet No. 5 ('Algorithm in one movement')

Just a couple more things I need to hear, and I'll rank the albums and somehow wrangle the songs...

Thanks for doing this, I was hoping to see your list to round out my listening. It's amazing how you find albums that slip through the tracks at even the more adventurous critics; I haven't heard of these top two and Ben Lamar Gay only popped up a couple of times. Looking forward to some listening!

notbrianeno, (hmm, a strangely specific denial) ordinarily I wouldn't ask you to change my vote, but I really loved the new Cowboy Junkies album, which spectacularly failed to get any traction this year.

sonofsamiam, did you hear the Alison Cotton album All Is Quiet At the Ancient Theater? Originally self-released as a cassette on Bandcamp, it got a vinyl pressing at the end of the year. Might be something you like. Psychedelic folk on viola.

Hello if I were to post a list, it would look like sonofsamiam... more in categories than sorted order.
Would you be able to count it in nonetheless ?

Hi Spiritualized, points are based on rank of each album in the list, but if your involvement hinges on it, I can give all of the albums in a given category the same amount of allocated points, descending by high to low category.
Current AOTY 2019: Lana Del Rey | Norman Fucking Rockwell!
Current SOTY 2019: Weyes Blood | "Movies"

Would you be able to count it in nonetheless ?
Hi Spiritualized, points are based on rank of each album in the list, but if your involvement hinges on it, I can give all of the albums in a given category the same amount of allocated points, descending by high to low category.
Brilliant, that's perfect - Albums in the same 'rating' category are far too close to each other, in different genres, for me to be able to rank them.
I appreciate the flexibility, thank you !
