If Kanye hadn’t self-immolated approximately two dozen times this year, we’d be talking about this as a Kanye posse cut up there with “Ultralight Beam” and “Monster.”

Great picks! Nary a quibble with any of them. “Immaterial” in particular is a SOTY contender for me. I know there are complicated feelings - to put it lightly - about the album proper, but might I also float out there...”Ghost Town”?

Thrilled about that new American Football cut - IMO it blows anything off the tepid comeback album out of the water. Dare I say that it also sounds Tortoise-influenced?

Can't shake the feeling that Colin Stetson's Hereditary score is receiving acclaim for its clever contextualization rather than for excellence in isolation. It's not super different from anything he's already done on an album proper.

Comfortable calling the A.A.L. record Jaar's best at this point. It flows really well from movement to movement and song to song, and genuinely slaps while still maintaining his interest in corroded sonics. A lil surprised that it hasn't gotten as much attention as the records released under his own name or the Darkside album.

Are Deerhunter post-peak? I love Deerhunter and think Halcyon Digest is a masterpiece, but...I'd love to be convinced to like these new songs more, too.

It's the best, man; no other 2018 album managed to locate fatalism in modernity like this one for me. The blurb gets it right - woods and Elucid sound defiant while still being remarkably clear-eyed about all the forces coalescing and conspiring to grind us down. A worthy successor to my avatar, too!

Since they seem to be getting the industry push, per these noms, I'll announce here that I've finally heard a Greta Van Fleet song! It was playing at the gym this morning, and I initially thought "weird to hear Led Zeppelin amidst the top 40," and - a second later - "wait..."

Earl makes that connection explicit in his interview with Craig Jenkins at Vulture (great read for anyone else who’s loving the album and wants to decode its process a lil).
