    We have in the past but i don't recall if there is one this year or not.

    EDIT: A search is leading me to believe that 2011 was the last time someone made a thread like that. Feel free to do so yourself!

    My top 10 so far



    1.Glenn Jones - My Garden State - fingerstyle guitar, really heartfelt, thoughtful stuff I feel
    2. Merzbow/Gusafsson/Pandi - Cuts - noise/free jazz courtesy of Merzbow and Mats Gustafsson and a live drummer
    3. Fire! Orchestra - Exit! - More Gustafsson, this guy never ceases to put out great stuff. Two burning free jazz pieces.
    4. Richard Youngs - No Retreat In Comfort - probably my favorite artist of the year, this Richard Youngs album is as weird and delightful as any of them. Repetitive beautiful vocals over strange, noisy, almost chiptune-y instrumentals
    5. Johann Sebastian Bach performed by Chris Thile - Bach: Sonatas and Partitas, Vol. 1 - Chris Thile is a MacArthur Genius award winning mandolin player who has arranged and performed some Bach pieces originally for violin for solo mandolin. Stunning.
    6. Dustin O'Halloran - The Beauty Inside - a series of really beautiful, and really short, ambient pieces. The whole album is under 20 minutes.
    7. William Basinski - Nocturnes - this is my favorite thing Basinski has done in a while. It's very moving, especially the second song.
    8. Colin Stetson - New History Warfare Vol. 3: To See More Light - not quite as good as his 2011 album, but still a solid effort and worth it for the monster title track alone
    9. The Knife - Shaking the Habitual - solid album. Don't bother with the deluxe edition as the 20 minute ambient track it includes isn/t very good.
    10. Autechre - Exai - I'll be honest, I haven't revisted this much, but I remember loving the hell out of it when it came out
    Arcade Fire - Sir Richard Bishop, Bill Orcutt - Spoon - Paul McCartney - Steve Gunn - Beserktown Fest - Slint - Sleep - Swans - Owen Pallett - Neutral Milk Hotel - Chris Thile & Edgar Meyer - Bobby Bradford Quartet - Matana Roberts - Wadada Leo Smith, Anthony Braxton - Thurston Moore, Sebadoh - Songs for Unseen Warhol Films - Ben Frost, Tim Hecker, Pete Swanson - Ryoji Ikeda - Slowdive - A Winged Victory for the Sullen - John Zorn Marathon
