Music with an Impact - 2018

2018 was an interesting year for music. The political climate that is being felt all over the world, permeated across the work of these diverse and accomplished artists. The overall tone was definitely introspective, reflective and filled with different textures, something that Thom Yorke's work for "Suspiria" (the soundtrack) can attest and exemplify perfectly. On top of new releases, I was also able to discover some previous releases from artists who have become my favorites.
Below are my favorites of 2018.

Jon Hopkins - Utopia
Nils Frahm - All Melody
Tim Hecker - Konoyo
Robyn - Honey
Beast - Ens
Thom Yorke - Suspiria
Gas - Rausch
Neneh Cherry - Broken Politics
Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer

Jon Hopkins - Monsters
Clark - Death Peak
Geotic - Abysma
