Black Origami is the second album by Indiana producer Jlin, first issued for streaming on May 11, 2017 and on other formats by Planet Mu on May 19, 2017. Produced in a year from 2015 to 2016, it features collaborations with William Basinski, Holly Herndon, Fawkes, and Dope Saint Jude. The title of Black Origami describes the structure of the music: the songs are complex pieces that take advantage of silence as much as sounds, similar to how an origami makes intricate art based on plain paper. Two tracks from previous Jlin extended plays appear on Black Origami: "Nandi" from Free Fall and "Nyakinya Rise" from Dark Lotus.
Black Origami was critically acclaimed upon its release; reviewers highlighted Jlin's increased range in her sound and style, the album's variety of sounds, its percussion and rhythms, and the use of collaborators. Black Origami landed in the top ten of year-end lists by publications such as Exclaim!, Rolling Stone, Spin, Pitchfork, PopMatters, and the Chicago Tribune and was one position shy of making it into the top ten of The Village Voice's annual Pazz & Jop critics poll.
Oneohtrix Point Never
Age Of is the eighth studio album by American electronic producer Oneohtrix Point Never, released on June 1, 2018 on Warp Records. Recorded over two years, it features contributions from James Blake, Anohni, Prurient, Kelsey Lu and Eli Keszler.
It is the first Oneohtrix Point Never album to prominently feature Lopatin's own vocals. The artwork, which employs Jim Shaw's "The Great Whatsit" as a central image, was designed by David Rudnick. The album has been accompanied by the conceptual "concertscape" MYRIAD, which premiered in May 2018 at the Park Avenue Armory. While not entering the official United States Billboard 200 chart, it peaked at number 59 on the magazine's Top Current Albums chart.
Dust is the third album by Berlin-based American electronic music artist Laurel Halo, released via Hyperdub on June 23, 2017. The album features contributions from Eli Keszler, Julia Holter, Michael Salu, and Max D among others, and was preceded by the single "Jelly", featuring Klein and Lafawndah.
Reassemblage is the second studio album of Portland, Oregon duo Visible Cloaks, consisting of musicians Spencer Doran and Ryan Carlile. The record is named after Trinh T. Minh-ha's 1982 documentary film of the same name, since both works observe its subject matter without showing meaning to it. Reassemblage departs from Doran's past hip-hop releases for a more high-quality style inspired by the works of Japanese synthesizer music acts such as Yellow Magic Orchestra and Ryuichi Sakamoto, all of which were featured on Doran's 2010 mix Fairlights, Mallets & Bamboo.
Reassemblage uses Doran's "fourth world Japan" music structure similar to the "fourth world" concept of composer Jon Hassell, where virtual replications of acoustic instruments specific to nations all across the globe are played together to create a virtual world. The combinations of these sounds lead to discombobulated situations to the point where the source of the sounds are unknown and all of the sonic textures "end up sounding like something else.” Reassemblage was released on the label RVNG Intl. on February 17, 2017, and landed on the American Billboard Dance/Electronic and New Age albums charts.
Safe In The Hands of Love
Safe in the Hands of Love is the third studio album by American musician Yves Tumor, released on September 5, 2018, through Warp Records.
Too Many Voices
Too Many Voices is the fourth studio album by English experimental techno producer Andy Stott, released on 22 April 2016 under Modern Love Records. The album involved Stott intending to create grime-influenced tracks, so much of the LP's sound palette is used from the Korg Triton, a workstation keyboard distinctively used in early grime instrumentals. Too Many Voices follows Faith in Strangers in terms of the dark and abrasive style of his discography first present on his EP Passed Me By; however, it adds a much cleaner, more spacious, and what some reviewers labelled as an "airier" element to that sound, which caused the LP to garner more criticism from reviewers than his previous albums did, though critical reception was still very favorable. The album peaked at number 11 on the American Billboard Dance/Electronic Albums chart.
Blood Bitch is the sixth studio album by Norwegian musician Jenny Hval, released on September 30, 2016 on Sacred Bones Records. Co-produced by Hval and Lasse Marhaug, the album was preceded by the singles, "Female Vampire", "Conceptual Romance" and "Period Piece".
Described as "an investigation of blood," Blood Bitch is a concept album which draws parallels between a fictional time-travelling vampire, named Orlando, and Hval's own experiences touring her previous studio album, Apocalypse, girl. The album's lyrical content is also influenced by menstruation, 1970s horror and exploitation films and Virginia Woolf.
Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
The Kid is the sixth studio album by American electronic musician Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. It was released on October 6, 2017 by Western Vinyl. Sonically, it is "richer" and "busier" than Smith's previous releases.
Platform is the second studio album by American electronic producer Holly Herndon, released on May 19, 2015, via 4AD. The album received wide critical acclaim upon its release. It is the first commercially released album to include a track intended to trigger autonomous sensory meridian response, "Lonely at the Top".
AZD is the fifth studio album by British electronic musician Actress. It was released on 14 April 2017 on Ninja Tune Records. Upon its announcement, the video for the lead single "X22RME" was released on Ninja Tune's YouTube channel. AZD is Actress's fifth album. The preceding album, Ghettoville, had been suspected to have been his last.
As an artist, Actress has always been considered vague in regards to the intentions behind his actions and albums. Christian Eede of The Quietus writes that while a common theme of Cunningham's albums reportedly experienced by listeners is death and a downbeat vibe, AZD shows Actress in a more humorous and open light.
Cunningham tends to give vague titles to his music works to give his audience a glimpse of what the concept of the pieces are instead of fully revealing his thoughts on his songs.
The album has a central concept of the sound associated with 'chrome'. Chrome can represent futuristic ideals while also conveying coldness which in turn could represent human dissociation. Even with this, AZD is a big change in terms of energy from past albums. Its energy is described and felt as higher, as it is not as gloomy or dark as his others.
Fatima Al Qadiri
Brute is the second studio album of Kuwait musician Fatima Al Qadiri. A protest album inspired by events such as the 2015 Baltimore protests and the Ferguson unrest, the album regards the authoritarian power of law enforcement in the United States and the illusion of democracy existing in the western part of the world. Its cover art by Josh Kline, Babok Radboy, and Joerg Lohse is a photograph of one of the "police teletubbies" found in Kline's art piece "Freedom," which was intended to present how civil rights were being destroyed in the 21st century. Brute features samples of the Ferguson protest, an MSNBC report of Occupy Wall Street by Lawrence O'Donnell, and an interview with a former member of the LAPD regarding the power of the police.
Released by Hyperdub in March 2016, Brute garnered significant media coverage for its unique political message and was listed in the "Top Ten Protest Albums Of 2016" by Shadowproof, where Kevin Gosztola described it as "the kind of album that will carry even more resonance in the era of President Donald Trump."
For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have)
Aviary is the fifth studio album by American musician Julia Holter, released on October 26, 2018, by Domino. It was preceded by the singles "I Shall Love 2" and "Words I Heard". The album title is derived from a line in poet Etel Adnan's 2009 collection Master of the Eclipse.
Narkopop is the fifth studio album by Wolfgang Voigt's Gas project, the first album under the moniker in 17 years and his first on Kompakt. The album was released on 21 April 2017.
Paradise is an extended play by British-American musician Anohni, released on 17 March 2017 by Secretly Canadian. The lead single, also titled "Paradise", was released on 26 January 2017. As with Anohni's previous album, Hopelessness, Paradise features collaborations with Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never.
The EP includes seven tracks, one of which called "I Never Stopped Loving You" has not been publicly released and can be acquired by sending Anohni, via her e-mail address, a personal e-mail sharing with her "...a sentence or two what you care most about, or your hopes for the future. Send this to me instead of the dollar you used to send me in the olden days."
Love Streams is the eighth studio album by Canadian electronic music musician Tim Hecker, released on April 8, 2016 on 4AD and Paper Bag Records.

Carla dal Forno
Oh No is the second album by Canadian musician Jessy Lanza. It was released on May 13, 2016 by Hyperdub. The album features co-production from Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan and was preceded by the singles "It Means I Love You" and "VV Violence".

The first single from the album, "The Highest Flood", was released on 7 March 2017. Compassion was announced on 30 March 2017, and accompanied by another track from the album, "Arms Out", featuring a video directed by Sam Wiehl and Forest Swords himself. On 26 April 2017, a third track, "Panic", was released, again with a video directed by the artist.
A further single featuring two tracks from the Compassion album recording sessions - "Congregate" and "Free" - was released on 28 September, with all proceeds going to relief work in Mexico and Puerto Rico.
In an interview with Fact, Barnes talked about the hybrid of digital and analog sounds used to create the record, noting that computer-generated instruments and digital processing on recordings blur the lines between "real and fake" on the record, drawing parallels between his music making techniques and the current affairs trend of 'fake news' in the media.
Queen of Golden Dogs
Persona is an extended play by Italian producer Lorenzo Senni, released on the label Warp Records on 11 November 2016. The EP showcases Senni's viewpoint as a "Rave Voyeur" character of the music and culture of hard trance, as well as the genre's relations to dancehall and the rest of the electronic music dance spectrum. Persona differed from Senni's past trance releases in terms of composition and production; he was influenced by hardcore punk to have the EP consist more on chords rather than arpeggios, and the recordings of the Roland JP-8000 Supersaw sounds he used were edited and altered with effects instead of just left raw, leading to a much more expressive scope in terms of sound according to critic Patric Fallon. The album garnered very favorable reviews from music journalists upon its release, landing at the number four spot of Fact magazine's list of the best albums of 2016.

Music for Nine Post Cards
Black Metal is an album by Dean Blunt, released on Rough Trade Records in November 2014. The album features vocals from Blunt and frequent collaborator Joanne Robertson.
Musically, Black Metal features more traditional pop song structures than Blunt's previous work, but is diverse in instrumentation and genre. The album includes elements of indie pop, folk pop, Americana, dub, ambient, grime, drone, and dancehall. Critics have also noted the prose of Blunt's lyrics as being similar to contemporary hip hop lyrics, which often reflect that of dark subjects like infidelity and alcoholism.
Blunt has stated that the album was inspired by what he sees as black artistic liberation away from the appropriation of 'existing/old white images' toward 'something that is undefined and is new'.
Forget is the tenth studio album by experimental band Xiu Xiu, released on February 24, 2017. Produced by John Congleton, Greg Saunier, and Angela Seo, it features contributions from Charlemagne Palestine, Kristof Hahn, Vaginal Davis, and Enyce Smith.
