Well, opportunity knocked and I answered the call!

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.
- Mocky – Space Strut
- Noname feat. Adam Ness – Prayer Song
- Son Lux – Yesterday’s Wake
- Lonnie Holley – I Woke Up In A Fucked Up America
- Venetian Snares x Daniel Lanois – Night MXCMPV1 P74
- Jean-Michel Blais – blind
- Wolf Willow – Me And The Moon
- Charlotte Day Wilson – Falling Apart
- Rafiq Bhatia – Before Our Eyes
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.
Previous lists, for reference:
2017-long | 2017-top 5
2016-long | 2016-top 5
2015-long | 2015-top 5
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: Continue reading “OPERATION MANATEE MUSIC PRIZE 2018: THE LONG LIST”
