Hello. I've got into a habbit of swapping best of the year CDs with my brother. It's a really challenging thing to do to hack everything down to 79mins worth of music but here is the one I've done.
It's pretty 'safe' and conservative because he won't listen to anything 'metal' so there's no Kylesa or Kvelertak or whatnot. Also no AUN or Yellow Swans because the tracks are too long as well.
1) Ready to Start - Arcade Fire
2) House on the Hill - Emma Pollack
3) Paradise Circus - Massive Attack
4) Bloodbuzz Ohio - The National
5) Scissor - Liars
6) Stay Lit - Holy Fuck
7) Dirty Cartoons - Menomena*
8) Get Real Get Right - Sufjan Stevens
9) Good Intentions Paving Co. - Joanna Newsom
10) Me and the Devil - Gil Scott Heron
11) weak04 - 65dos
12) I want the World to Stop - Bell & Seb
13) Past the New Parking Deck - Trouble Books
14) No One Just Is - Holly Miranda
15) Famine Affair - Of Montreal
16) When The Chips are Down - Anais Mitchell
17) Palaces of Montezuma - Grinderman
18) Cosmology - Rolo Tomassi
* I spent AGES debating which Menomena track to go for. Now I think I should have picked Tithe. Nevermind.
So yeah, does anyone else make a CD? What did you put on it? What do you think of my selections? And so on.
