Glad the Lingua Ignota got to #157 despite not being officially nominated; mildly shocked I was the sole voter for Aldous Harding - it was vaguely inescapable in NZ (but was turning up in intl EOY lists) and came round to it after my flatmate had it on repeat in the kitchen (though she always made me turn off Jlin, which I swear I'd voted for).

Is Ibeyi the lowest compared to how high it was in all the EOY polls around?

There were a few things that seem to have had no traction with ILX at all compared to critic lists - Sampha, Sheer Mag, Thundercat, etc.

I am definitely serious! I didn't know of it until I had a look through the nominations, but I decided to play it and it stayed on the whole time and it was very good! There were perhaps 2 or 3 others albums I could have voted for but I'm not so good with names, or it was things like the cedric dekowski where i only really liked one track and i didn't put that one in the tracks ballot because i already had 10 by then, and more than 10 feels gauche to me

Still hoping seandalai will post some of our ballots, but in the meantime, I want to mention a late entry on my ballot:

Tomoko Sauvage – Musique Hydromantique

It is very spare with a heavy emphasis on ambient drone, along with metallophone (real or synth--I'm not sure). If you sometimes like following an extended tone as it decays, you may like this. Definitely a favorite from among the more ambient things I've listened to this year (and I think I've heard a bit, thanks to ILM recommendations).

Felt like during the countdown hardly anything I voted for placed, but apparently 9 did which is good odds. Most disappointing is Mountain Goths getting 78'd - an ambitious album with some really really strong highlights.
I felt like Ibibio Sound Machine should have placed higher, but as with their previous one, I locked into one song (Give Me A Reason) and just played it to death.
Wasn't expecting my number one to place. I put it there simply because it became a go-to record for at least the first 6 months of the year. I'd put it on any time I didn't have anything else to listen to, and just got to know it really well. Shout outs to the sole other voter.
People who like big, dancehall-inflected electro should check out both the Still and Errorsmith albums. Just gobsmacking. Equiknoxx too, but it's not everyone's cup of tea.

This is what was on my ballot. It was ranked, but this is not the exact order. I was making a lot of quick last minute decision, so I don't remember the actual ranking, but it wasn't that far from this:

Melkbelly – Nothing Valley
Dauwd – Theory of Colours
Ross From Friends – You’ll Understand
Camille – OUÏ
Charlotte Dos Santos – Cleo
Nadah El Shazly – Ahwar
Matthew Shipp Trio – Piano Song
Octo Octa – Where Are We Going?
Lowly – Heba
Sudan Archives – Sudan Archives
Justin Adams – Ribbons
Laura Marling – Semper Femina
Sunny Sweeney – Trophy
Paramore – After Laughter
Musica Secreta – Lucrezia Borgia’s Daughter
Ariwo – Ariwo
DJ Seinfeld – Time Spent Away from You
Thomas Demenga – J. S. Bach: The Six Cello Suites
Tomoko Sauvage – Musique Hydromantique
Kelly Moran – Bloodroot
Zsofia Boros – Local Objects
Auntie Flo – Soniferous Garden
Various Artists – Digital Zandoli 2
Jo Harman – People We Become

I've never really gotten into Bach's cello suites, but I think the timing was right for this particular ECM recording of them. I will have to go back to other performances, eventually.

Kelly Moran and Tomoko Sauvage go together to an extent. Kelly Moran is prepared piano (etc.?) which I thought was prepared harp, for some reason, so some interesting preparations there. Hints of the original gamelan inspiration for prepared piano. The Tomoko Sauvage album begins with metallophone (or synths that sound like metallophone).

And I like (some) lo-fi house a lot, whether it's cool or not.

Campaigning after the fact.

_Rudipherous_, Friday, 2 February 2018 17:40 (eight months ago) Permalink

Ariwo is something I found on lex's year end list. First impression was that it was kind of fourth-worldish, but with more of an authentic Latin horn sound. That turns out to be care of veterans from major Cuban groups:

Ariwo are a Cuban/Iranian four-piece focused on intersection between electronic and ancestral music.

The band brings together Iranian electronic composer POUYA EHSAEI and three of London’s most influential Cuban musicians; Irakere's Latin Grammy winning “percussion virtuoso”, HAMMADI VALDES; Sierra Maestra lead trumpeter, YELFRIS VALDES; and godfather of London’s Cuban scene, ORESTE NODA.

Also Anna Wise, toward the bottom. Forgot that.

_Rudipherous_, Friday, 2 February 2018 17:46 (eight months ago) Permalink

Rudipherous those aren’t either synths or metallophones on the Tomoko Sauvage record, it’s far cooler than that:

Musique Hydromantique is the second solo album by Tomoko Sauvage archiving many years of her performance-based practice on the waterbowls – the natural synthesizer of her invention, composed with porcelain bowls filled with water and amplified via hydrophones (underwater microphones). While her first album Ombrophilia (released on and/OAR in 2009) was studio-recorded /composed work, Musique Hydromantique is about experimentation and improvisation with the environment – acoustics affected by the architecture, temperature, humidity and the human presence.

For more than ten years, Sauvage has been investigating the sound and visual properties of water in different states, as well as those of ceramics, combined with electronics. Water drops, waves and bubbles are some of the elements she has been playing with to generate the fluid timbre. Since around 2010, hydrophonic feedback has been an obsession for the musician – an acoustic phenomenon that requires fine tuning depending on the amount of water, a subtle volume control and interaction with the acoustic space.
