3. Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma

Lifting electronic music to new heights, Flying Lotus, constructs one of the most magnificent records in its realm. Cosmogramma is beyond expectations, beyond music, and beyond us listeners. It is the future sound music. Preserve this one, its legendary.

2. Ariel PInk's Haunted Graffiti - Before Today

Never really could understand the true joy of this band until I saw them live. His psychedelic, post-modernized, 70s vibe speaks volumes in his soulfully musical career, and is even more emphasized in the fearsome album he put out this year . Its perfect in so many ways. Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti turns my dark days into bright ones.

1.Teebs - Ardour

Beats never sounded so beautiful and serene. Teebs' debut album incorporates wavy-basslines and chiming earthy textures into an alluring 18 track masterpiece. With each listen a new sound is discovered in its prepossessing layers of greatness. Too great for words, really, you must listen for yourself.
