My Promiscuous Cochlea: Everyone My Ear Took Home in 2014

Posted by Mark Beaver, January 8, 2015 05:33pm | Post a Comment


Vinyl isn't cheap, nor is is tawdry, so the collecting of it has become much more a matter of discernment than it used to be.

The following is a list, alphabetical, perchance by merit, of the vinyl (new titles and re-issues) that made the cut in 2014. It doesn't presume to be a "Best Of," as I am very aware of the peculiarities of my particular set of listening apparatuses. It is a list of the vinyl that my scattershot attention locked on to, brought home and allowed to bed down in the limited space that I allot for records in my home.

AMEN DUNES
Love (Sacred Bones)

Folky, trippy, with that under-water production we've heard from the likes of KURT VILE, except where VILE is stoned and hanging with his buddies, AMEN DUNES' Damon McMahon is lost in a vast open space, deep in the mushroom and calling "Marco Polo" to the night sky. Stark and brittle while somehow managing to remain lush. I don't think I listened to any album of 2014 as often as I've listened to this.

New Electro/Techno 12"s Coming This Weekend:

Dorian Concept
TRILINGUAL DANCE... 12"
AFF003

Two club bangers from the Austrian producer. Sounds like "DC microwaved his MicroKorg" on the bumpy, electronic A-side. B/w "TROPICAL HANDS" which has similar Detroit styled synths mixed with glitchy efx but at a more laidback down tempo.



Rob Glennon
NIGHT FREAKS REMIXED 12"
DB3014T 

Here we see techno maestro ORLANDO VOORN and London's PAUL MAC (STIMULUS) tweak out "BASS SHIFTER," whilst the original version of "RATIO" appears alongside the devastating remix by THE PARALLEL. Already charted by DAVE CLARKE, DETROIT GRAND PUBAS, CHYMERA, and more.
