I feel compelled to list my favourite albums of last year.
- Congotronics and Congotronics 2 - a raw, new musical movement from Kinshasa, featuring distorted electric thumb pianos. Like danceable punk for acid house fans.
- Acid Brass - an old album I found by accident. Classic late-80s house music played by a brass band, but much more than a gimmick album, this is lovely stuff.
- Labyrinth - A best of Juno Reactor compilation. Some strange, haunting and beautiful tunes, and some dark powerful goa trance, often at the same time.
I have to confess I quite enjoyed The Best of Johnny Cash too.
