Actually my album of the year. Congrats to Bill.
Why? I can't be bothered explaining. Stasis probably, Bill always does stasis well and this is a good stasis record. And melancholy to boot.
Other ephemera? Ah Bitte Orca, Sunset Rubdown, The Ecstatic, The Unthanks one, The XX. I tried to do a top 10 but 3 in the top 5 didn't come out this year which I noted from Amazon. Fuck me, losing touch and that.
