    It’s Run The Jewels for me, had it on hard repeat all year.

    Followed by Pusha T’s My Name Is My Name and probably Flatbush Zombies’ Better Off Dead.

    Yunki : At the risk of appearing nepotistic have a listen to Soma Compilation 21 by Gary Beck, a very good selection & DJ mix of the best of Soma over the past year, have a look through the rest of the soma catalogue as well, some excellent Techno/Tech house driven tunes have been released over the past 12 months.

    Oi! I didn’t have a rant about Daft Punk so you’re not allowed to slag off someone choosing Bonobo!

    I wasn’t slagging off Bonobo (strokes his twin gatefold 12″ of Black Sands) just North Borders, giving it another listen now to see if I was being harsh but nope, elevator music for people in expensive jeans. 😕

    Now recent Daft Punk, christ now there’s some properly boring music, shame, their 1st Album was fun.

    Disappointed by the latest Bonobo and Daft Punk as I’ve loved their albums in the past.

    Some 303’s here

    And if you want some techno, this set from The Black Dog is pretty good.

    I listen to music through Spotify, and generally on random or playlists, but the albums I keep going back recently to are Volcano Choir’s Repave and The Tallest Man On Earth’s There’s No Leaving Now.

    Just had a quick listen to that p7rich. Soulful music with a hint of jungle. Filthy! Right up my musical street. Any similar recommendations would be welcomed.

    P7rich, that album is pretty good and shows his versatility, but I think Lee Gamble and Zomby do that sound a lot better. I have been liking the Akkord and Logos records too.

    Most played dunno… quite liking hookworms and drenge. Clutch. New carcass is a bit over produced but I **** love Carcass from way back. Liking the new Alabama 3 a few spins cos I like them too. New arctic monkeys is probably the most played in my house the wife and eldest love it.that lorde album too.

    I can’t really think of an album that’s really blown me away this year, but there are two I keep going back to, just because of the utterly sublime singing on one, and well sung, beautifully melancholy songs on the other, and they’re ‘Dead & Born & Grown’, by The Staves, and ‘Little Letters’, by Paper Aeroplanes.
    ‘Winter Trees’, by The Staves is just stunning, a beautiful winter/Christmas song.

    Might be a bit mainstream for the niche-whores, but I’m still loving James Blake, and Arcade Fire’s latest. Arctic Monkeys still a regular on the playlist too.

    I’m really tempted to throw in some made up bands. Can I mention Spastic Waffletaster’s last cd? It wasn’t really a cd, more a compilation of their first 4 EPs but still…

    1) Earth Rocker by Clutch (nice to see a few fellow Clutch fans on this thread)

    2) Blackbird by Fat Freddy’s Drop

    3) Lightning Bolt by Pearl Jam (needs 10 listens or so to click mind you)

    The new Red Fang and Transplants albums are quite good too.

    The prevalence of Clutch fans shouldn’t be too much of a surprise on here.

    Clutch fans = Beards = Real ale enthusiasts = Steel 29ers = STW

    Red Fang’s Wheels & Leeches is another one I’m having trouble getting my head around though, not a bad album but nothing special. I think it’ll grow on me. if I give it time.

    Ooooo just thought of another one: Atlantean Kodex – The White Goddess, thunderous goodness.
