Television Personalities - A Memory is Better than Nothing. Some wonderful songs on here, particularly "She's My Yoko". Dan's songs can break my heart.

Vic Godard - We Come As Aliens. Vic is as sharp and funny as ever. His best since "What's The Matter Boy"?

Internet Forever - Cover The Walls. A joyous noise:

Sweet Baboo - The Bumblebee song: From 2009, but I'm a little late. Fancy gittar pickin' and a sweet song:

Jonathan Beckett - She's a Vampire EP . Literate and FUNNY.

Granite Shore - Flood of Fortune. I can have this on the list, as you can barely hear me on it! A wonderful song.

The Tartans - West of La Brea. Because it makes me happy, and happiness is a precious thing.

The Starlets - I'm Your Kinda Guy. Smart, sophisticated pop. How can Camera Obscura be big and no-one's heard of these? Hilarious video, too. I suspect alcohol was consumed.

Those New Puritans - We Want War. An excellent noise:

Sexual Objects - Cucumber. The Godlike Genius of Davy Henderson strikes again.

The Liminanas - Je Ne Suis Pas Tres Drogue. It's a bit like Stereolab ;-)

Standard Fare - Philadelphia. Quality, noisy pop.I hated them at first (before I'd actually heard them!) then had to submit! Great pop.

Bubblegum Lemonade - Caroline's Radio. More hooks than a fisherman's rucksack.

Honeyheads - Out Of Marseilles. More, joyous, noisy pop music!

A Fine Day For Sailing - Summer Blonde: Classic pop, with a big nod to Brian Wilson. Matt is recording with Dan Treacy next year - should produce something special.

Anders, mark these with a capital 'T' for Terrific and also 'T' for Thank You! and another for Thabulous, darling!

plus these are also proving to be a Tonic so that's another 'T' for your bumper bag of 'T's'

colour yourself 'T'ed' up to the gills

the letter for this post has been:

T

Reverse order Spotify playlist (where possible)

1. Emeralds – ‘Does It Look Like I’m Here’ (Editions Mego)

Image

[T]here's something about Emeralds' sound that really is theirs alone. (Timbrally, the band has never sounded richer-- thanks in part to James Plotkin's mastering job-- and that's especially true of the luscious heavyweight vinyl pressing, cut at Berlin's Dubplates & Mastering.) The way they set loops against loops, with super-fast pinwheeling oscillations buzzing out of control on top, turns their tracks into perpetual motion machines, gathering incredible force as layers accrue. It's a big part of the magic of this band, and what distinguishes even their most new age-flavored compositions: the overload of information, the spray of frequencies, the thrilling, viscous rush. - Philip Sherburne

'Candy Shoppe' and 'Now You See Me'

2. Umberto – ‘Prophecy Of The Black Widow’ (Not Not Fun)

Image

Umberto is actually a one-man band, that man being Matt Hill, live collaborator / touring member of Expo ‘70. While Expo ‘70 has proven to be especially adept at channelling the heavy kosmiche bliss of prime ’70s krautrock a la Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel, Umberto is equally savvy at conjuring the dark, suspenseful soundtrack-y sounds of Goblin and the like. With, some cosmic Klaus-y krauty-ness thrown in as well. - Last.fm artist wiki

'Temple Room' and 'Everything Is Going To Be Okay'

3. Mark McGuire – ‘Living With Yourself’ (Editions Mego)

Image

Taking inspiration from early friendships, family and "the problems that inevitably develop through years of knowing someone" McGuire's compositions tenderly unfurl nostalgic scapes of Göttsching-like guitar forms and bubbling synths with that endless ability to capture elusive, fleeting moments of bliss like the best of his work with Emeralds. His knack for blending acoustic guitar signatures with magical synths is conducted with the keenest sleight of hand, not deceptively so, but more like an illusion of blissed misdirection, contrasting and melding textures and harmonic qualities to create unpredictable crux points that'll leave you beaming inside. He dispenses this formula to sublime effect on tracks like opener 'The Vast Structure Of Recollection' and the achingly affective 'Two Different People', delivering acute hits of romantic yearning and ponderous wonderment with a beautifully instinctive nature. Possibly most gorgeous of all is 'Clear The Cobwebs', paring down the synths for a largely solo guitar delight with a flourish of electrcity in the final throes, and furthest from anything we've heard previously is 'Brothers (For Matt)', a ten minute closer floating from tape collage to Shoegaze thrash with a meditative kosmische finalé. - Boomkat

'The Vast Structure of Recollection' and 'Brothers (For Matt)'

4. Oneohtrix Point Never – ‘Returnal’ (Editions Mego)

Image

The opening three pieces (‘Nil Admiari’/'Describing Bodies’/'Stress Waves’) are in fact a trilogy, and taken as a whole they are very much in the spirit of ‘Physical Memories’ from Lopatin’s Russian Minds LP, a gradual descent from noise to ambient. It begins with a sound somewhere between a scream and the buzzing of a thousand wasps, before it feeds an entire junkyard into the shredder. “Nila Admiari” is a deep and stormy collage of clanks, rumbles and bleeps which sounds very much like the sort of wild experimentation (yes, very Editions Mego) that Lopatin was getting involved with at his live show. It is as exhilarating a start to an album as I’ve heard this year. It segues into the deceptive calm of ‘Describing Bodies’, its stillness created by tension, pulled taut by the piece that preceded it, before ‘Stress Waves’ adds pulsing synth ambience and textural washes, dropping you back down gently at the shoreline. The first side of Returnal then ends on another extraordinary note, with Lopatin’s vocals, hitherto rarely heard on record or at least dropped deep in the mix, all out front on ‘Returnal’. They are of course distorted, pitch-shifted, and more than a little retro – divisively so, perhaps. The doubters who sniggered at the “new age” seagull noises when I saw Lopatin in the Grosvenor (and the birds chirp away again in the background during “Pelham Island Road”) may find this too much, too obvious, too 80s, but the music retains that alien pop character of something like ‘Zones Without People’ – it just adds the people back in. - Scott McMillan

'Nil Admirari and 'Ourboros' and 'Stress Waves''

5. Catherine Christer Hennix – ‘The Electric Harpsichord’ (Die Schachtel)

Image

[A] largely neglected masterpiece from Swedish-born composer Catherine Christer Hennix, a disciple of LaMonte Young and Pandit Pran Nath during the 1970s. Although her music is largely unknown - even among the experimental music community - those who've been exposed to Hennix's work tend to rank her among the elite of American minimalist composers of the twentieth century. The Electric Harpsichord (recorded in 1976) is talked about with the highest reverence by the avant-garde's cognoscenti, with Glenn Branca describing it as "a pure perfect piece of music" and "a work of transcendent power". Having embarked on her compositional career in the 1960s studying the techniques of Xenakis and Stockhausen, Hennix's musical bearing was jolted somewhat by the Nuits du Fondation Maeght festival in 1970, where she first encountered LaMonte Young and Hindustani raga master Sri Faquir Pandit Pran Nath. Over the course of the ensuing decade, Hennix would study with both these men, and to many the piece reproduced on this disc is her magnum opus. Made using keyboards tuned to just intonation and a tape delay feedback network based on Terry Riley's notion of the "time lag accumulator", the piece is a thing of sparkling psychedelic chaos, achieving that magical dichotomy between apparent narrative-shirking motionlessness and eternal flux... - Boomkat

6. Betty & The Werewolves – ‘Teatime Favourites ‘ (Damaged Goods)

Image

there seems to be something stronger in the pot than PG, judging by the fast and feisty character of their music. ‘Euston Station’, which was their excellent first single, sums up their dissatisfaction with convention: “I don’t want dinner and a movie/ I just want someone that’ll move me”. Their rebellious indie approach seems torn from the same textbook consulted by Dolly Mixture and Tallulah Gosh, taking elements from punk rock and 60s girl groups (just hear the Ronettes’ stomp in ‘Good As Gold’), and mixing them up with angular post punk rhythms and dynamically dark alt-country (‘The Party’). Their cultural references might suggest a certain swottishness at first glance but their literary hero is Charlotte Bronte’s bad boy Heathcliff, while ‘Plastic’ seems to take collecting vinyl a bit Tetsuo-style literally: “my plan for the future is to have some pieces sewn into my face”. - Sounds XP

'Paper Thin'

7. Actress – ‘Splazsh’ (Honest Jons)

Image

Actress himself has called his music "R&B concrète," and that helps illuminate the way he works from both inside and outside a track. He has an ear for building up a song from the bottom (like a pop producer) and then abstracting it from the top (like a musique concrète technician), so that he makes some incredibly strange sounds surprisingly palatable-- and without making a big show of their strangeness. In that, Actress shares a certain allegiance with post-dubstep artists like Zomby (who has made records for the label that Actress runs, Werk Discs). But there's a range of hooks and ideas at play in Splazsh that few others have approached, much less made coherent. - Andy Battaglia (Pitchfork)

'Maze' and 'Lost'

8. Xeno & Oaklander – ‘Sentinelle’ (Wierd Records)

Image

http://174.120.137.162/~misslizw/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/WierdNMEPattison.jpg

'Sentinelle' (slow) and 'Preuss' (live)

9. Dum Dum Girls – ‘I Will Be’ (Sub Pop)

Image

[T]hese songs are genuine earworms, both unfailingly hip and often wonderfully associative. Most adhere to a deep romanticism that details the various incarnations of love, from the fatalistic ("Yours Alone", featuring guitar work from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner) to the overprotective ("Everybody's Out"). There is an air of disaffection that peppers a lot of these songs (for example, "Oh Mein M" is sung entirely in German), but they never end up feeling too cool for school, with their giddy bounce often fostering a more inclusive feel than anything else. The quick highs, dissatisfaction, and longing can't hide how terrifically fun most of I Will Be is. - Zach Kelly (Pitchfork)

'Bhang Bhang I'm A Burnout' and 'Oh Mein M'

10. Standard Fare – ‘The Noyelle Beat’ (Thee SPC/Melodic)

Image

A riot of hormones, cut-to-the-chase lyrics, bolshie girl-boy vocals and jingle-jangle propulsion, this debut from the Sheffield trio distils all the best and most lovable aspects of indie guitar music and avoids its many pitfalls. Marrying sharp kitchen-sink poetry about romantic/sexual transgression, regret, indignation and defiance to fast and furious melodic catchiness is nothing new, but doing so evocatively remains an achievement beyond most of the doggedly amateur thrashers who pose and pout on the UK toilet circuit. Not so Standard Fare. There is something incredibly winning about Emma Kupa’s mix of faux-coy naivety and don’t-f***-with-me stroppiness; allied to the pell-mell playing of Danny How and Andy Beswick, on songs such as Love Doesn’t Just Stop and Philadelphia, she summons an almost Smiths-like bathos. - Dan Cairns (The Times)

'Philadelphia' and 'Dancing' and 'Fifteen'

11. Games – ‘That We Can Play’ (Hippos In Tanks)

Image

'Planetparty' and 'Strawberry Skies'

12. Love Is All – ‘Two Thousand and Ten Injuries’ (Polyvinyl)

Image

'Bigger Bolder' and 'Early Warnings'

13. Thee Oh Sees – ‘Warm Slime’ (In The Red)

Image

'I Was Denied'

14. LA Vampires featuring Matrix Metals – ‘So Unreal’ (Not Not Fun)

Image

'Make Me Over' and 'How Would U Know?'

15. Corridors – ‘Corridors’ (Sedimental)

Image

Byron Westbrook has been performing CORRIDORS live around the US and EU for the last four years, however this audio cd is the first physical release of the project and Sedimental is ecstatic to be releasing this very committed young artist's debut. Since 2004 Westrbook has been the technical coordinator for Phill Niblock’s Experimental Intermedia Foundation. While assisting and collaborating with Niblock and other luminaries of experimental music, Westbrook began developing CORRIDORS as a multi-channel performance system for live guitar feedback. Shortly after the completion of a month-long tour with Rhys Chatham’s Essentialist, Westbrook began performing the project. CORRIDORS has since evolved to encompass the improvised performances of other musicians, recordings of which are processed into phrases or texture units for playback from ipod or minidisc players through the multi-channel system. The results are sweeping and fluctuating textures that place distinct frequencies in different parts of a room, creating an intense opening and closing of space over time for the listener. The pieces were recorded in large spaces (churches, concert and university halls) using a mixture of binaural and mid/side microphone techniques, to allow for the most accurate imaging in a stereo field. The recording process spanned a three year period, during which many different performances of the works were documented. These recordings were carefully edited together, taking the most representative moments of each performance, to make this CD containing three frequently performed pieces. These pieces are loosely structured works, always performed in conjunction with single or multiple light projections. An element of improvisation exists within each performance in that every room is different and the sounds respond uniquely to different rooms. There is a beginning, middle and end that has been worked out, but where the sounds exist and for how long will change for each performance.

16. Stellar OM Source – ‘Trilogy Select’ (Olde English Spelling Bee)

Image

'Island Best' and 'Magnetic Depths/Rights of Fusion'

17. Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti – ‘Before Today’ (4AD)

Image

'Bright Lit Blue Skies' and 'Fright Night (Nevermore)

18. Trash Kit – ‘Trash Kit’ (Upset The Rhythm)

Image

'Cadets'

19. Owen Pallett – ‘Heartland’ (Domino)

Image

'Lewis Takes Off His Shirt' (live at Guelph Festival - v rainy) and 'Lewis Takes Action' (w/orchestra)

20. Allo Darlin’ – ‘Allo Darlin’’ (Fortuna Pop)

Image

'My Heart Is A Drummer' and 'Polaroid Song' (live at Indietracks 2010)

ben over at stereo sanctity blog is currently running through his personal top 40 favourite records of 2010 (in instalments), he's certainly uncovering some stuff I missed as well as mentioning enough stuff I dug to make me want to check out the stuff I missed, if you get my meaning
