"It was first a study. I wrote silences, nights, I noted down the inexpressible. I arrested dizzy falls."

Arthur Rimbaud (A Season in Hell, 1873)

Talk Talk's latest album is a mystery. I hesitated for a long time before I started to write this clumsy review... After all, if there is ONE record whose music is self-sufficient... if there is one album that can work without words about it, it is "Laughing Stock". In front of this aerial and vaporous monument, we can logically ... read more

(murmures)

"Spirit of Eden" is above all an improbable record. Who would have thought that one of the most commercial New Wave bands of the 80's would have changed their sound in such a radical way? I would have liked to see the disturbed faces of the EMI representatives listening to this discographic UFO. I imagine them sitting in their ivory towers, dismayed, drops of sweat beading on their bald foreheads and saying to each other "Where are the hits??? Where is the sequel to ... read more

The Devil's Interval.

Jandek is crazy. Of course he is. Because if he is sane, it means that the world has lost its mind.

It all started with a name. Jandek? It's hard to know his origin, it sounds a bit Scandinavian, doesn't it? Ah, he's American? Sterling Smith, you say? Well, well, well. An album title now. "Ready For The House". I had listened to the Happy Mondays recently, so it wasn't a bit of House music that was going to scare me. I was joking (badly), I thought I was ready. ... read more

...HAPPY NEW YEAR !!! <3

As a tribute to an album where nothing is left to chance, I wanted to post this review today, December 31, about 31,536,000 seconds since last January 1, to wish you, joyful and heteroclite AOTY members, a Happy New Year 2021! And here’s my top 50 albums of 2020 : https://www.albumoftheyear.org/user/whatthefunk/list/19848/top-50-nuggets-of-2020/

Can we be too conceptual ? Take out your pencils, you have 1h13 minutes and 12 seconds: the exact duration of ... read more

« I see fire in the dead man's eye. »

God, Satan, Shangô... they are in my head forever; they revel in my sins, in my dry soul, in all my perfidious being... The tribal percussions are amazingly heavy; my visions more whimsical than ever. I perceive the multiple lights that only the third eye can grasp in the opaque night. Visions of putrid zombies, voodoo rituals, human sacrifices, psychedelic ghosts, electriiiiiiiiicity AND stars that twirl at high speed, collide in ... read more

Buried memory of a diaphanous lullaby

Even today, I still keep the after-effects of my first encounter with the improbable purity of Ichiko Aoba and her unbeatable live "0%".

Even today :
- hearing a Japanese woman humming into a microphone causes me to hyperventilate, and an asthma attack if she utters a word in Portuguese;
- it is impossible for me not to have convulsions when a daily noise is superimposed on the sound of an acoustic guitar;
- the slightest warning sign of a samba ... read more

Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!

Dec 20, 2020
Let me know when/if you drop an AOTY list! I’d love to look through what albums you, and others, enjoyed the most this year. If you already posted one then I’ll give it a look ASAP.

I plan on dropping mine at the very end of the year (both EPOTY and (LP)AOTY lists) and would prefer any feedback on them!

aka Mathieux 🕶

WhatTheFunk ? who is this frog-eater coming from another dimension who, armed only with his magic coat rack (nicknamed "Rico") fights alone against the terrifying pharaoh-vampires, the evil flesh-eating bath mats and their Nazi-Communist allies?! Who is hiding behind the glasses of this hero who defends orphans, pandas and heel fetishists?! Is he a millionaire, a pyromaniac, a fireman or an underpaid sweeper in a Yugoslavian laundry? So many questions and yet so few answers...
