that said, a lot of what i get isn't new. in the days when i was doing a radio show, i felt more compelled to come up with new releases on a regular basis, since being on air weekly meant that my audience [such as it was] became familiar with what i was offering pretty quickly. doing a monthly slot doesn't carry the same weight, because a lot of times, people will have forgotten what they heard weeks [or even a few months] before and, more to the point, there is a lot more tolerance and even comfort in hearing something familiar in a public environment.
there are releases about which i'm curious that i haven't managed to get hold of yet. cut hands, the new project of william bennett of whitehouse is certainly something i want to check out. for that one, i can't blame anything but my own laziness.
current 93 released an album this year, but, having been bitterly disappointed with their last offering, i've been a little shy to approach it. i'll get around to it one of these days.
there are actually a lot of releases from this year that i haven't had the chance to listen to yet, and you'll forgive me if i don't list them all here. i will slowly get caught up, at which point i'll most likely be writing recaps of 2012 or 2013.
SO WHAT THE HECK DID I LIKE?
