Me Ten Toe Paranoia #16

Manatees,

Adulting is bullshit. Let’s cut all that crap out for an hour, pour yourself a cup of something nice, turn the volume up, and join me on a weird adventure of cool music sound stuff, and late-night, kinda sleepy rambling stuff. I’ll keep that second thing to a minimum.

11:00 to midnight.

Happy New Year, manatees!

Cory’s out tonight, so you’ve got me for an hour, starting at 11:00 PM. I’ve just recently completed (slapped together) 2018’s Operation Manatee Music Prize Long List, so you can likely expect a brief review of that, along with a spattering of other underground goodies.

So, pour yourself something nice, put on those headphones / crank up the speakers, and join me for this week’s musical escapade into the darkness.

  1. Mocky – Space Strut
  2. Noname feat. Adam Ness – Prayer Song
  3. Son Lux – Yesterday’s Wake
  4. Lonnie Holley – I Woke Up In A Fucked Up America
  5. Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois – Night MXCMPV1 P74
  6. Jean-Michel Blais – blind
  7. Wolf Willow – Me And The Moon
  8. Charlotte Day Wilson – Falling Apart
  9. Rafiq Bhatia – Before Our Eyes

OPERATION MANATEE MUSIC PRIZE 2018: THE LONG LIST

Life has a way of making you postpone things you like doing, then Christmas came. Ah well, better late than never?

Because life’s been a little extra crazy this year, I didn’t get around to paring down the long list as much as I would have liked. As usual, I re-listened to all the albums/EPs I thought were half decent, keeping off the ones that just weren’t good enough, but I just didn’t have time for a final edit, and write-up for each album.

So this year, I’m keeping it pretty simple, because the long list is long, and it’s already late. This year, it’s just the list: no album covers, no write-ups, just a big, alphabetized list. Sorry.

To make up for it, I still plan on writing up the top five albums in full regalia, within the next week or so.

Per tradition,

Previous lists, for reference:
2017-long | 2017-top 5
2016-long | 2016-top 5
2015-long | 2015-top 5
2014
2013
2012

Some rules to make it to this list:

  • Must be sonically interesting
  • No singles except full album-length/concept tracks; can be EPs
  • No compilations; can be solo artists, bands, collabs

And now… the 2018 Operation Manatee Music Prize Long List:
