Top 10 Albums of ’09

Another year, another list. 2009 was strange for me in terms of music. While 2008 seemed to offer a long list of great albums, ’09 felt more subdued. Of course this could be the result of two key music stores…

Various – Warp20

Warp Records recently shipped out their Warp20 box set, celebrating their 20 year anniversary. The box includes a 192 page booklet showcasing the covers of every Warp release up to this point, a double CD of tracks selected by fans…

Broadcast & The Focus Group – Investigate Witch Cults Of The Radio Age

UK-based psychedelic-pop band Broadcast have returned with a new (50 minute long) mini-album on Warp Records, in preparation for a full-length to be released sometime next year. The album is a collaboration with The Focus Group, aka Julian House, a…

Hudson Mohawke – Butter

I had to share this artwork posted by Warp Records today for the upcoming Hudson Mohawke album, Butter. It’s pretty ridiculous and I love it. You could toss this on a kid’s Trapper Keeper and it would be perfect. There’s…

Harmonic 313 – When Machines Exceed Human Intelligence

Harmonic 313 (aka Mark Pitchard) released When Machines Exceed Human Intelligence back in February on Warp Records. Heavy on the synth-laden robotic beats, the album is a satisfying mix of Detroit techno, dubstep and instrumental hip-hop worthy of its title.…

Flying Lotus – Los Angeles

Yes, another Brainfeeder-related post. But I should have posted this long ago. On August 17th, electronic music artist Flying Lotus will release the final piece of his three-part L.A. EP series. The EPs are an extension of his second release…

Bibio – Ambivalence Avenue

Bibio is an artist I’ve been interested in for a while, but I never got around to picking up one of his Mush Records releases. English-born Stephen Wilkinson is known for his atmopsheric, folk-inspired tracks, often making use of field…

Prefuse 73 – Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian

This is the album cover for Preuse 73’s new album, due April 14th. Not sure who’s responsible for it According to commentor Judah, the cover is by Dan McPharlin, who I’ve been seeing a lot of lately and discussed previously.…

Flying Lotus – Reset

I may have posted about this before. But I think I was focusing on his website and not the album. Either way, the cover is amazing and I’m really excited about his Warp LP coming out in June, Los Angeles.…

Clark – Body Riddle

Artwork by Universal Everything (according to Discogs. I’m getting the album in a few days so I can confirm.) Also, a wild video for the track “Ted”, done by 1stAveMachine. Hope you like bugs!

Squarepusher – Ultravisitor

I once had an aversion to album covers featuring artists’ faces. Although I think that typically went for bland pop albums, ala Jessica Simpson. Fortunately, Squarepusher isn’t Jessica Simpson and this cover is an exception. Maybe what attracted me most…

Prefuse 73 – Preperations

I made a post about the cover of Prefuse 73’s Preperations album a few months ago when it was first announced, but I wasn’t sure who the artist was. Now I know that it was Kim Hiorthøy, who also happens…

!!! – Myth Takes

This is the cover and gatefold of dance-punk band !!!’s Myth Takes, done by an artist named Kevin Hooyman. The artwork is half the reason I bought this album, besides !!! being awesome. Check out Hooyman’s website. It confuses me…

Prefuse 73 – Preparations

I don’t really have much to say about this. Just that I am very excited about this album and the artwork is excellent. I’ve been a Prefuse 73 fan for a long time and all of his releases have been…
