Decayed down-payment

As last year, sneaking in a first instalment of the Festive 33-1/3 before midnight...

Besides each selecting 15 releases that stood out especially for us over the year, subject as ever to the recognition-spreading/hair-shirted restriction of no more than one per artist/label, we highlight a quartet of works that go beyond the confines of a single album. 

Separating them out like this gives some additional prominence merited by their ambition & scale. 

This year's four comprise:
Various Artists :: Place Language (Fluid Audio
Various Artists :: Various Artists (eilean 100) (eilean
Various Artists :: CRXSINGS (self-released)

Ben Vida :: Reducing The Tempo to Zero (Shelter Press

To be sure, the year brought other deeply worthwhile larger-scale projects. But these four resonated particularly vividly with our ears...

Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
