2017's Greatest Hits- albums, singles, reissues, books, movies, videos

2017 was kind of a schizzy year- tons of great singles, albums not so much maybe...

The best records I heard included part III of a great formula (Run the Jewels), a great live show revisiting an amazing catalog (Sleater-Kinney) and other albums that continuing on other impressive formulas, including Miguel, Omar Souleyman, the Bats, Antietam, Sweet Spirit, Jay-Z, Penguin Cafe, Fireworks, Gas, GBV, Bing and Ruth, Beaches, Curtis Harding, Bed Wettin' Bad Boys, Onra, Robert Rich, Amber Arcades and Eyelids.

To be fair though, a bunch of other performers also had fresh takes on their sound, including Migos, Spoon, Abdominal, Robert Plant, Fever Ray, Bully, Octopus Project, Jun Kamoda, Trex, Lost Balloons, Bibio and Brandon Seabrook.  Maybe not a coincidence that three albums that also fall under this 'fresh take' group include three minimal techno records that made my top 10 list: Rhomb, Timid Boy, Cleric.

There was also a bunch of quality debut albums, though a number of them were EP's: Roy Woods, Charly Bliss, Otenba kid, Rocks FOE, Les Filles de Illighadad, Feature, Suss C*nts, Gate to Otherside, Black Shape.

For some reason, there were also a bunch of quality ambient records, including old faves (Robert Rich, Gas, The Caretaker) and all shades of moods including floaty (Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society), dreamy (Chuck Johnson, Benoît Pioulard), meditative/minimal (Oliver Alary, Ensemble of Irreproducible Outcomes), unadorned beauty (Bing & Ruth, Poppy Ackroyd), cinematic (Alessandro Cortini), ethereal (Christopher Willits), light but sad (Bibio), dark ambient (Alphaxone, Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement), lighter, new age-y (Suso Saiz, Justin Walter) and all of the above (the Kaito mix and Silber Records' mountain of holiday music). Maybe in the age of Trump, we need to chill more than ever.

I guess it's churlish to complain when you've found 90 good albums but I felt the same with last year's list and still think the 'good ol' days' can be traced recently to the start of this decade.  And let's not forget that there's always 'new' music from 2017 that we find out about after the fact, long after this year (or any year) is over.  Truth be known, I found out about several good singles and a few good albums since I posted this hours ago.

But as for singles, it's been a bonanza.  I can't remember when I've heard more good SONGS out there in a year and it's not just 'cause we can grab individual album tracks that aren't necessarily set up as singles, not to mention all the 'unofficial' releases.  Everything from pop and dance to rap to indie is pouring with memorable tunes now.  The best way I've still seen to coral all this great music is the Hype Machine aggregator, which I support financially and you should too if you care about finding out the best new tunes. And thank God Soundcloud is still with us- without it, we'd lose an invaluable library of music, lots of which ain't for sale or download-able. 

(and what does it mean that three of my favorite singles are unreleased rap records or that I didn't love Kendrick's album or that this would be a good year for Xmas rap records?)

I'd also note that if you're a music nut, you might be interested in this 2017 music journalism round-up that Blurt Magazine was nice enough to just put out in time for the holiday season.

And finally... just a friendly reminder that if you're a music fan and you want to support the artists making great work, why not invest in it?  If you can't make it to their shows, buy their albums, buy their downloads (I've included links to sites to help with that), buy their mersh and help to ensure that they'll still keep making great music.
