What Will Be KEXP's Top Electronic Albums in Its Top-600 Album Countdown?

Posted by on Fri, Sep 28, 2012 at 12:06 PM

KEXP asked me and several other local music writers to list which albums—according to a specific niche in which we supposedly possess expertise—we think will appear in its countdown of the 600 most important albums of the last 40 years (2012 marks the radio station’s 40th anniversary). KEXP wanted me to name the 10 electronic LPs that I believe will make the countdown. These are not records that I deem to be the best since 1972 (although some of them certainly are), but rather ones that I predict listeners will choose to make the final cut. That list is up on KEXP’s blog now, for all you list lovers and electronic-music fans to peruse and pick apart.

I have to imagine that Aphex's Selected Ambient Works will make it on there.

That was in an early draft, but then I thought it might be too esoteric to garner a ton of votes. But I do hope it makes it!

Ah, funny, I just checked the site, it comes in at 632. Close but no cigar!
