    This would be kinda cool to keep updated. A good way for people to listen to "the best of the year" throughout the year

    Lowkey great/overlooked BNM from 2015:

    Empress Of
    Floating Points
    Jlin
    Joanna Newsom (not generally overlooked, but haven't seen much talk around this one)
    Lower Dens
    Tobias Jesso Jr

    I like the idea of this, especially as another way of finding new albums to check out.

    Anyone have a RIYL for Anna Meredith (assuming @cwhit is gonna help me out on this one)

    Ryan would be better for that. It's electronic music that hits a lot of different sounds. Holly Herndon maybe? Not really though

    These were two of my favorites from last year. I love seeing TJJ get some high profile writing credits. I'm curious if we'll get any more albums from him since Goon was kind of a happy accident.

    I always thought there was a pretty simple trend (most bnt end up with with bnm, 2+ bnt almost guarantees) but it hasn't proven true as much lately. Good indicator is if they bnt a random track like the day before an album comes out.

    I love the first three, Newsom is great obviously, Lower Dens I don't like as much as their older stuff, didn't listen to Jesso at all

    I sure hope we do! It's one of my favorites from last year. Saw him at a fest in the summer and he's really fun live too.

    I meant more in sound trends. Feels like there's a lot more unknown artists getting BNM (especially in electronic music) since like mid last year, I mean porches is really the only "indie" record at all this year that's gotten the goods (unless you consider Bowie in there)

    Yeah I like his voice a lot. I'd love to see him live at some point. I'm hoping that the success of "When We Were Young" has more people reaching out to write with him. That song is really something else

    Oh yeah that's been weirder. Especially this year. Like I thought Savages, DIIV, Chairlift were all guaranteed and Porches would be a long shot. Seems they're generally handing it out more to electronic (which is good, bc there aren't too many artists I actively follow) and their old reliables (Kanye, Kendrick)

    Fingers crossed for Mitski and White Lung (and maybe Hotelier?!?!?! Will it happen?!?!?! I'd love for them to be the new dplan)
     
  16. Meerkat

    Officer Hot Prestigious

    I expected Chairlift to get BNM'd as well. The Porches record has been a great find for me though. I love the little jazz licks he sneaks in all over those songs. Makes for a very interesting and complex listen.

    Anna applies a lot of classic composition techniques to electronic production. She is wonderful. It can often feel like the score to a film. Here is what might be her best track still to date:

    bro tag me cmon we have the technology

    I have a strong feeling about The Hotelier. Other two seem likely as well, which would be huge for Mitski. Expecting Anhoni and LUH as well.

    Julianna Barwick would be unsurprising too. Probably a 7.9 but...

    @Ryan Dennehy That's super fucking cool. Definitely going to have to check out the album.
