Lists are arbitrary and burdensome, but why not join the fun everyone else is having? We gathered our lists, separate lists for all of us, then combined them into one that had 50 albums. What you get here are the four writers/contributors of ATH, giving you their meaningless opinions on what we thought was the jam in 2017. It’s alphabetical, and we put the initials next to it so you could track down your enemy!
Do you like your pop music quirky? You anti-synths? You want to hear what happens when electronic foundations are slightly shaken to provide flourishes of syncopation from analog devices? It really is the break at around the two minute mark and instrumental bits that follow that won me, so hang in if on the fence.
Just check out this track from John Maus. The new record, Screen Memories, lands 10/27 on Domino. It can be ordered individually or as part of a six LP box.
