the best albums of 2015
Since I’ve been writing for OOR it’s a tradition to make a top 10 of best records of the year, but since I’ve stopped writing for them they turn to other critics. So no real list this year, but an overview of the albums I enjoyed the most.
What are the best albums of 2015 according to me? I’ve posted two each day until 31|12|2015. In no particular order, although the first one mentioned below is my absolute favorite. For those who missed a day or two here is the complete list of best albums of 2015.
‘LIX’ by Glice. electronic neo-shamanism. the soundtrack of accelerationism. new weird ambient or cosmic noise.
‘Körper’ by Isolation Berlin. schlafen kan ich auch noch wenn ich tot bin.
