GORILLA VS. BEAR’S ALBUMS OF 2017

gvsb_albums_2017

As the internet's collective attention span continues to dwindle away and the clickbait economy slowly ruins everything good, we made a conscious effort this year to spend more time listening to fewer things. Discovering new favorites will always remain a priority around here, but it felt good to devote more quality time to absorbing ambitious, flawed, elaborately nuanced and layered masterpieces like Dust, Quazarz, Party, and The OOZ. And the more immediate records that we fell in love with at first listen -- TOPSSugar at the Gate, the super charismatic Carti mixtape, and Kelly Lee Owens’ enveloping debut full-length, to name a few -- felt more like all-time favorites with each spin. While anyone in our top 5 could have staked a legit Album of the Year claim depending on the day, we had to put the two EPs that announced the arrival of dance music's brightest new star in their rightful spot at the top of our list. Here are our favorite records of 2017:

ALDOUS HARDING BLEND

Aldous Harding shares the stunning video for the opening track from one of the year's best albums. Directed + edited by Charlotte Evans. Not quite as intense as seeing Aldous live, but probably about as close as you can get. Aldous says the video's concept "is based on that awful scene from 'Apocalypse Now' where the Playmates pile out of the helicopter," adding, "the costume was handmade for me, it turned out great. It's in the bin. I spent eight hours dancing on a Lazy Susan, it was easy really.” Party is out now on 4AD:

Aldous Harding – Imagining My Man

Party

We were introduced to the music of New Zealand's inimitable Aldous Harding back in 2015 by Christie Simpson of Yumi Zouma, and after a couple years of being destroyed by "Stop Your Tears" every single time we heard it, we were finally #blessed to catch an unforgettable performance by Aldous last week at the beautiful Boise Contemporary Theater as part of Treefort Fest (trust me, go to this instead of SXSW next year if you're able)...

Yumi Zouma x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Aldous Harding

ALDOUS HARDING

I saw Aldous Harding play this song live a couple of months back and I was completely and utterly spellbound. She hails from Lyttelton, a port town about a half hour away from where I live. Her music is haunting, her voice is beautiful and her wit is sharp -- I fell in love at first listen...
