We are glancing back at the highlights of 2019 in the latest issue of Electronic Sound. And what a great year it has been. No wonder we had trouble choosing our favourite records of the last 12 months.
As you will have probably already worked out from this month’s cover, one of our top picks is Anna Meredith, an artist who has brought her classical training and sensibility to electronic music, added in her own various obsessions, and come up with something entirely fresh.
Other names that feature heavily in our 2019 review include krautrock legend Michael Rother, the former Neu! and Harmonia man, and folktronic pioneers Haiku Salut. And as well as presenting our Top 30 albums of the year, we’ve also selected our recommended reissues, compilations, soundtracks, books and gear. We’re talking a veritable feast of goodies here! Elsewhere this issue, Thomas Leer tells the story of ‘Private Plane’ and Nurse With Wound‘s Steve Stapleton explains the thinking behind the band’s famous “weird music list”.
We also chat to Richard Fearless, No-Man, Marconi Union and Irmin Schmidt from Can. Plus, of course, there’s our jam-packed reviews section, our regular columnists, and much more besides. Happy Christmas!
