...because I'm always playing catch up and seldom buy records in the year they were released.
Anstam 'Dispel Dances' (2011) - not sure how this one passed me by. Incredibly dark dubstep/techno in the vain of Margaret Dygas, Oni Ayhun but with more melody.
Bernard Szajner 'Some Deaths Take Forever' (1980) - I can imagine this guy has been hugely influential on a lot or modern industrial/electronica musicians but I'd never heard of him until I stumbled across him by chance and his stuff is hard to obtain.
Tod Dockstader 'Aerial #1' (2003) - probably my first authentic musique concrète and fast becoming one of my favourite records. Need to buy Aerial #2 and #3 asap.
Kona Triangle 'Sing A New Sapling Into Existence' (2009) - this has a FlyLo/HudMo feel to it and as such I'm surprised it's not been hyped as much.
