Andrew Martin PoOP 2013



Poop – Andrew W. Martin, Eddyville, NY



Records and sounds that came to me in this year but were not necessarily released in this year… As the lone pooper representing sounds primarily directed at the dance floor and a non- listener of rock since the Pixies Doolittle (unless LCD Soundsystem counts as rock) … here are some interesting things I felt this year…



     Buy New or Used via Amazon

1. Special Request – Soul Music – Houndstooth – 2013
– A man comfortable in all genres makes a stellar album deeply wed to old school UK hardcore. Paul Woolford…ladies and gentleman.

2. Kolsch – 1977 – Kompakt – 2013
– Hits and more hits… loops and more loops. Disco n house n tonz of fun. Melodic techno at its best. Very peak moment dancefloor hands in the air kinda stuff.

3. Cosmin TRG – Gordian – 50 Weapons – 2013
– Loopy and very hooky techno.



     Buy New or Used via Amazon

4. Shed – The Killer – 50 Weapons – 2012
– Blinding beats interwoven with glacial ambient backdrops.



     Buy New or Used via Amazon

5. Trus’me – Working Nights – Fat City – 2007
– How I missed this in 2007 is beyond me… just put it on and guaranteed a smile every time. On heavy rotation all year. Disco and funk classics melded together seamlessly.

6. James Blake– Overgrown – Polydor – 2013
– Melancholy is not my usual cup of tea…but this is wonderfully and minimally striking.

7. Trentemoller – Lost – In My Room – 2013
– Mature third album from the Dane.



     Buy New or Used via Amazon

8. Nina Kraviz – Nina Kraviz – Rekids, Ltd. – 2012
– From Russia with love for the deep end of all things house. Raw stuff from 2013’s ‘it girl’



     Buy New or Used via Amazon

9. Donato, Dozzy & Neel – Voices From The Lake – Prologue Music – 2012
– Deep and eerie.



     Buy New or Used via Amazon

10. Machinedrum – Vapor City – Ninja Tune – 2013
– Burials demented cousin? Rinsed breaks and clippity clop drums and big epic pads. Outstanding and 2013’s likely best.    &nbsp: Buy New or Used via Amazon



My Love Is Underground – anything this label has produced for the past two years is gold and impossible to get and expensive as f*ck. Rekindled deep house in a big way.

Honorable mentions… Todd Terje – Spiral EP, Vakula – Firecracker EP 5 and anything else I can get my hands on by this Ukranian producer. Motor City Drum Ensemble – Send A Prayer EP, Andres – New For U, Noodleman – Starlight EP, Daniel Avery – Drone Logic, Daphni – Jialong, Axel Boman – Europa EP, Bonobo – The North Borders. Anton Zap – Water.

Best reissue: St. Germain’s – Boulevard

Most Tiresome: Daft Punk – Random Access Memories

Saddest trust fund moments…Uber-beardies buying $1000 dollars worth of vinyl at a clip while talking cod shit about electronic music…Best crate digging experiences…The Thing – Brooklyn, Angry Mom Records – Ithaca, Atom Heart Records – Montreal, Philadelphia Record Exchange – Philly.
