VEYU part of Getintothis' best albums of 2014 countdown

VEYU – part of Getintothis‘ best of 2014 countdown

The penultimate instalment of our albums of 2014 sees Getintothis’ Peter Guy relishing industrial Polish outrock, Reykjavík’s electronic wilds plus Wirral and Widnes artists creating sonic wonders.

Nearly there. The second to last reveal of our albums of 2014 finds us taking detours to the dancefloors of NYC via improvisational Polish prog and an unlikely partnership in electronic pop.

You can catch up with our 100-51 here, 50-31 here and yesterday’s 30-21 here.

Please do share with us your recommendations in the comment section below, or alternatively join the discussion on Facebook or Twitter where you can use the hashtag #GITAOTY.

The countdown continues…

 

Jane_Weaver_Silver_Globe

20. Jane Weaver: Silver Globe

Finders Keepers Records

When we alluded to why End of Year polls are important, we immediately thought of this record. Jane Weaver‘s quite remarkable record Silver Globe completely slipped under our radar but thanks to Piccadilly Records‘ #1 shout it’s been an ever present on Getintothis‘ Jukebox ever since. Make it your must-purchase festive treat.

The_Juan_Maclean_In_A_Dream

19. The Juan Maclean: In A Dream

DFA

The Juan Maclean have been on a roll for sometime now, and In A Dream continues their superlative interstellar disco funk overdrive in no uncertain terms. Like crack, but much better for the soul.

Getintothis on The Juan Maclean

Innercity_Ensemble_II

18. Innercity Ensemble: II

Instant Classic

Polish out-rockers Innercity Ensemble reimagine Mahavishnu Orchestra and inject a dollop of undulating improvisational kraut-jazz and industrial dub-noise. And flugelhorn. Oh, and darabukka.

Eno_Hyde_Someday_World

17. Eno & Hyde: Someday World

Warp

An astonishing collection of quite simply boss pop music. I don’t jog but if I did I would do lots of running to this. It’s makes you feel impossibly alive.

Getintothis on Eno

Veyu_Veyu_EP

16. VEYU: VEYU

Baltic

The finest EP released by a Merseyside band in recent times. Four Grade A winners, from the statement of intent Running though to Murmur-era alt-rock of All That We Know back to the soaring In The Forest and the colossal outrock of The Everlasting. Chapter two is much anticipated.

Getintothis on VEYU

Ben_Frost_Aurora

15. Ben Frost: A U R O R A

Mute

One of those rare records which despite how impenetrable it seems to be you can’t help but revisit – even on the first time of listening. Frost shapes chasms of harsh electronica but allows enough menacing melody in there to captivate and beguile. Centre-piece Secant is truly astonishing.

woods_with_light_and_love

14. Woods: With Light And Love

Woodsist

Woods must be one of the most consistent song-writing teams around – this was another slice of brilliance with the nine minute title track a career high.

Getintothis on Woods

How_To_Dress_Well

13. How To Dress Well: What Is This Heart?

Wierd World

By thrusting Tom Krell‘s voice RIGHT up front, What Is This Heart? isn’t just his most direct album it’s also his best – there’s a fountain of flourishing pop music within and on Repeat Pleasure he absolutely nailed the spirit of peak MJ.

Grouper_Ruins

12. Grouper: Ruins

Kranky

One of the most miserable records of 2014 is also one of the most heart-warming. Just hold on…

Mark_E_Product_Of_Industry

11. Mark EProduct Of Industry

Spectral Sound

Melancholic, slightly unsettling yet hugely rewarding, Mark Evett‘s Product Of Industry is one of 2014’s finest electronic records.
