So 2014 is finished and here’s a little round-up of what I’ve been listening to over the past year.

Autechre, as usual, occupy the top spot – seems I can’t get enough of those guys! The completely opposing Venetian Snares and Loscil occupy the next two spots although it does seem that ambient features quite highly in my top 10. Loscil had a beautiful new release with “Sea Island” which helped him jump to the number three spot.. Dunk will likely be happy to see that his Sunken Foal nom de plume is sitting in a healthy 6th position. Definitely check out his Friday Syndrome series and his new “Press Charges” project.

A surprise entry from Tool at 18th and note that Frank Bretschneider also plays as ‘Komet’ so in some ways could almost be sitting in 5th place. I do love “Gold” and that album gets quite a few plays.
