LSR's Choicest cuts

A Listmania! list by "l_s_r"
 
Haha Sound
1.  Haha Sound by Broadcast
The list author says:
  "Finely tooled shiny retro futurist experimental pop, the gorgeous voice of Trush Keenan straddling a drum sound as explosive as a young Keith Moon sitting in the basement."

A Year To The Day
2.  A Year To The Day by The Zephyrs
The list author says:
  "Aching and quietly anthemic songs of the heartbreak and loss... and the sea, whipped by the mournful sound of a lap steel guitar."
6.50   Used & New from: 1.48
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

One Word Extinguisher
3.  One Word Extinguisher by Prefuse 73
The list author says:
  "Monumentally inventive deconstruction of hip hop via laptop alchemy. Scott Herren is a genius my friends... this is one of the reasons why."
9.81   Used & New from: 6.62
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Un Autre Decembre
4.  Un Autre Decembre by Sylvain Chauveau
The list author says:
  "Minimal, Satie-esque piano figures set against thick slabs of worryingly powerful silence and almost subliminal vinyl static.."
8.79   Used & New from: 6.99
3.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Everyone Alive Wants Answers
5.  Everyone Alive Wants Answers by Colleen
The list author says:
  "Blurred guitars, birdsong, harpsichords, childrens voices... a record positively brimming with sparks of textured tunefulness."
9.49   Used & New from: 2.98
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Telegraphs In Negative/Mouths Trapped In Static
6.  Telegraphs In Negative/Mouths Trapped In Static by Set Fire to Flames
The list author says:
  "Disjointed spoken word, obscure field recordings, creaking floorboards, guitar drones, gorgeous string arrangements. Challenging music has never sounded so effortlessly beautiful."
Used & New from: 6.99
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Up In Flames
7.  Up In Flames by Manitoba
The list author says:
  "Ah Mr Snaith...so young and yet so sonically rich. Free jazz, backwards vocals and flutes rub shoulders with solid beats in a kaleidoscopic haze recalling influences from the past 30 odd years."
10.92   Used & New from: 0.18
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Hypnogogia
8.  Hypnogogia by Lucky Pierre
The list author says:
  "The singer from Arab Strab sets classical & operatic samples running against his antique casio drum machine. Transcends the sum of it's parts with ease and is a thing of somnambulent beauty."
9.99   Used & New from: 4.89
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Like Hearts Swelling
9.  Like Hearts Swelling by Polmo Polpo
The list author says:
  "More drones... and controlled feedback... and static - but with a lap steel guitar skating across the surface as an FM radio is slowly detuned."
11.08   Used & New from: 3.40
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

The Magick Fire Music / Wow!
10.  The Magick Fire Music / Wow! by Jackie-O Motherfucker
The list author says:
  "Bones. Bare bones rock. Loose slo-mo freak outs intercut with superbly unhinged sax improv and a little turntable manipulation thrown in for good measure."
Used & New from: 6.03

Martes
11.  Martes by Murcof
The list author says:
  "More nods to the neo-classical school here, Mexican Fernando Corona juxaposes shards of cello, viola and soaring voices against a glitchy and wonderfully granular backdrop of beats."
7.79   Used & New from: 1.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (8 customer reviews)

One/Three
12.  One/Three by Dabrye
The list author says:
  "Perfectly executed beats and bass programming in an almost minimal Prefuse style wasting not one second of these elements which creates a wonderfully pure filtered and funky sound in the process."
Used & New from: 13.58
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Antarctica Bliss Out V.2
13.  Antarctica Bliss Out V.2 by Windy & Carl
The list author says:
  "Oceans of sound... slowly drifting like tectonic plates as a freezing wind howls relentlessly, interfering with the microphone. I don't know how these sounds were wrestled from their guitars..."
10.25   Used & New from: 6.04

White Printz Ep
14.  White Printz Ep by Bumblebeez 81
The list author says:
  "Stoopid fresh head on clash between NY No Wave and Def Jam era hip hop. Raucous, snotty, undisciplined and all the better for it."
Used & New from: 0.01
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Spirit They've Gone, Spirit They've Vanished / Danse Manatee
15.  Spirit They've Gone, Spirit They've Vanished / Danse Manatee by Animal Collective
The list author says:
  "This record contains some of highest frequencies ever recorded and will make your nose bleed... that said, it also contains some startlingly original and niave music. Painful... but quite brilliant."
9.99   Used & New from: 4.48
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)
