When it comes to new music I'm usually pretty late to the party, mostly because I spend most of my time looking for music in other eras. So since I could careless about what came out last year (I'll get to that stuff next year probably) let's here about the stuff you got into this year regardless of when it came out.

For me last year was a big year for kraut rock, garage rock, and lots of other psychedelic stuff from the 60s and 70s. Some of my favorites are Michael Yonkers Band, The Glass Family, Can's early work, and Tim Buckley's Starsailor. One of my favorite artist that I dug up would definitely have to be the Silver Apples.



I also got into The Fall and spent a lot of time looking for post-punk/garage rock bands, like The Seeds, The Pretty Things, and Count Five.



Outside of all that I spent my time trying to get deeper into jazz, getting into artist like Ahmad Jamal, Horace Tapscott, Henry Franklin, Rudolph Johnson and Madlib's YNQ albums.

David Axelrod, I've had his 'Heavy Axe' LP for years but stumbled across his first three releases one day this year. Great stuff, many famous samples, but awesome music on every track. This also led me to The Electric Prunes stuff arranged by Axelrod.

Gabor Szabo is a guy I've mentioned frequently on the "what wax I bought" thread in the crates section. Found a bunch of his early work that I've enjoyed. I really feeling his 'Dreams' and 'Wind, Sky and Diamonds' LPs.

Also been feeling Ennio Morricone and Lalo Schifrin soundtracks, and a bunch of rare jazz at the good spots in town, don't wanna name drop any becuase I plan on sampling a bunch but I've been getting into 80's private press jazz because I thought good jazz ended in the mid 70's and used to disregard most jazz albums made later than 1974ish unless it was an artist I already liked. I now regret doing so for so long.

Some prog bands I've enjoyed this year are Rare Bird and The Flock, I've also just heard Bo Hansson for the first time and I also have been getting into Beaver & Krause (although I'm not sure if they're prog or jazz or electronic).

Also got into some more disco, my favorite bands this year are probably Mass Production and Gaz.

Many more but those are off the dome standouts

I really enjoyed Numero's early releases from a few years back, with Cap-Soul being one of my favorite comps of all time. I kind of stopped paying attention a couple years ago so I'm sure they have a bunch of stuff they've added to the catalog I'll need to peep. On a side note, I wish there was a hip hop Número...

i really got into a lot of early '80s funk and Italo-disco.





this year i'm planning on delving into the avant-garde, post-punk and new wave derivatives of the late '70s - early '80s.

I've recently have been trying to get into disco, especially european disco, but I'm having hard time finding a starting point. I'm digging that 'Lectric Workers joint.

You should check out the No New York comp, that is some crazy stuff, and defiantly check out the fall if you haven't already.

A lot of 2013 new stuff, things that stood out: Sons of the Morning which was a Teebs and Prefuse 73 collab, really went under the raidar, Drake, James Blake, Jon Hopkins, Disclosure, A$AP Rocky, Atoms for Peace, Forest Swords, King Krule, Lapalux and Mr. Muthafuckin' eXquire's mixtape were all on heavy rotation. But the best project that saw a glimpse of daylight for me was that Jai Paul project that leaked in spring, was taken down everywhere a few days later, but god damn...

Also a lot of acoustic Mississippi hill country blues. Got me some R.L. Burnside and Mississippi Fred McDowell records. Bought a lot of classic records I didn't own yet.

Also discoverd this, can't seem to cop it anywhere, I never buy stuff on eBay or Discogs but I might make an exception, might be my biggest find this year. The album has a few tracks that deserve classic status, Elis Regina's Elis from '66.

I dipped back into blues this year as well, I was really blown away by Rev. Gary Davis. The song that he performs at the 21min mark has become my favorite blues song.

They site Dillla and Madlib as massive influences. You can't nessacarily hear it on that track, tpbut that whole album is great. Kinda Jazzy, Dilla Hop, beautiful vocals, etc etc etc. whole album is dope.

yeah, i'm familiar with the vaporwave...seems like a fad to me, i like the chillwave interpretations of these '80s tracks much more--especially artists like Toro y Moi and Washed Out. those dudes just know how to utilize the samples better imo.

Your correct. The vaporwave artists dont really do much. Chillwave is different. Similar to cloud rap

Never got into Toro y Moi's stuff until last year, was digging that new record especially.

This song was on constant repeat for awhile



Edit: Ha, this isn't old music or anything but I totally missed out on the original chill wave thingy that happened awhile back I guess
