Tom Ridge's Favorite Recordings Of 2006

Neumu's Michael Goldberg writes: In case you're wondering why things slowed down to a crawl at Neumu last year, the answer, in a word (and in a web site), is MOG (www.mog.com). I've been spending most of my time working on MOG, the awesome music-focused social networking site, and Neumu has suffered (and if you haven't been there yet, check out my MOG: www.mog.com/Michael_Goldberg). Still, with 2006 over, I asked Neumu contributors to share some of the albums that rocked their world. Today, Neumu's Tom Ridge provides us with his faves of last year.

1. Keiji Haino and Tatsuya Yoshida, New Rap (Tzadik): Scorched-earth noise-rock. Brutal and uncompromising and not the easiest of listens, but it's well worth putting the time in to hear what happens when you demolish the structure and start afresh with new building blocks.

2. Vetiver, To Find Me Gone (Fat Cat): Andy Cabic's second album is a lovely slice of updated folk-rock/singer-songwriter material. Its winning warmth and yearning charm keep it safely out of the lifestyle accessory graveyard while retaining a disarming accessibility.

3. Pere Ubu, Why I Hate Women (Glitterhouse): The return of David Thomas' Pere Ubu as a rock 'n' roll band. The entrance to the Avant Garage swings open once again.

4. Boris, Pink (Southern Lord): Originally released in Japan back in 2004, but with such an awesome display of raw Metal power combined with Ambient abstraction it'd be a shame not to include its U.S. release on Southern Lord in this year's list.

5. Carla Bozulich, Evangelista (Constellation): Jaw-dropping intensity and high-tension vocal performances merge into an extended howl of dark, fraught expression. Stunning.

6. Harlassen, A Way Now (Sustain-Release): Another of UK musician Richard Skelton's exquisitely rendered limited editions — powerful, elemental acoustic drone music.

7. Akron/Family, Meek Warrior (Young God): A quick-fire successor to last year's debut and their split release with Michael Gira. Playfully eclectic and displaying a more muscular spiritual side.

8. Jackie-O Motherfucker, America Mystica (Very Friendly): A fascinating sprawl of diffuse, abstract Americana over four epic tracks.

9. Axolotl, Way Blank (Psych-O-Path): Karl Bauer's compelling slab of monolithic textural white noise, which achieves an near-psychedelic sense of displacement — one of several releases this year from this prolific San Francisco-based musician.

10. Steffen Basho-Junghans, Late Summer Morning (Strange Attractors Audio House): Shimmering acoustic ragas and epic meanderings from this German explorer of Takoma-school guitar playing.
