THE 2011 ILM SUPER-MEGA YEAR-END ALBUMS 'N' TRACKS POLL™ is open for nominations!

Bookmark Removed

It's time once again for the annual fun fest that is our EOY music poll. Since there's a good probability we'll be shifting over from the sandbox back to real ILM at some point in either the nominations or voting process, we're starting nominations a few days earlier than we usually do. J0rdan, seandalai and I have discussed it and we're keeping things exactly the same as last year, since last year's poll was such a success. Problem is, I'm having trouble accessing how we did last year's poll because real ILM is down. SO, from the best of my recollection, I think last year's nomination process worked like this:

You can nominate 25 (or fewer) items total. If you nominate 3 albums, you still have room to nominate 22 tracks. If you choose not to use all 25 of your nominations, you can (at your discretion) nominate things by proxy for other people who didn't have enough room under the cap to nominate those things. This happens every year anyway, so I figured I'd go ahead and address it up top.

Nominations will wrap on Thursday, January 5th at 7pm EST (that's midnight for Britishes and 4pm for the US West Coast). Voting will begin the following day and be open for the next two weeks. This nominations period is the time to familiarize yourself with and be introduced to new music, as it lasts a whole month. The voting period is all business. Get in, get out and then forget what all you voted for (we all do).

On your mark, get set... GO

Has musically abdicated for good?

Ismael Klata, Tuesday, 6 December 2011 14:48 (nine years ago) link

I haven't heard from her at all since I asked her about doing it last year. I haven't even seen her around since well before then. So...I guess so?

Also, just remembered: plz don't embed youtubes in this thread. Hyperlinks are fine, but embeds will bog it down for some people.

ALBUMS
Barbara Panther - Barbara Panther
Eevil Stö - S.O.D. (Stöö of Destruction)
Meshell Ndegeocello - Weather
Freeman - 4
Kami-Sakunobe House Explosion – Routes Not Roots*
Asa Masa - Jou Jou

TRACKS
Barbara Panther - Dizzy
Barbara Panther - Moonlightpeople
Eevil Stö - Lommo Sanoo Stöö Sanoo (feat. Lommo)
Kami-Sakunobe House Explosion – B2B*
Risqué - Burn It Up (Mr. DJ) [Ben Liebrand Edit]**
Asa Masa - Mikä Mikä Kylä

* I'm not sure if the Kami-Sakunobe House Explosion album and its tracks count... Some of the tracks and the album itself were released in Japan in 2006, but it was released outside Japan only in 2011. What's the policy on these? I think it should be included, as most folks didn't have the chance to hear this material until this year.

** This is an old track, but the edit only came out this year on Ben Liebrand's Grand 12-Inches 8 compilation, so I think it should count.

Tuomas, Tuesday, 6 December 2011 15:15 (nine years ago) link

Yeah, we've always allowed things that received an int'l release in the current year that may have been released earlier in a specific country. Especially if new material is included on the int'l release.

THE 2010 ILM SUPER-MEGA YEAR-END ALBUMS 'N' TRACKS POLL™ - VOTING CLOSED
Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed
In a short amount of time, you will be able to vote in the 2010 ILM Albums 'n' Tracks poll. Here is how it will work:

*A ballot will consist of (up to) 25 album votes and (up to) 25 track votes.
*Both categories will be allotted 650 total points each.
*An ordered albums/tracks ballot will count the points down from 50, 48, 46...6, 4, 2.
*An unordered albums/tracks ballot will have 26 points assigned to each vote.
*You MUST copy + paste your votes directly from the final list(s) of nominations, as syntax is of utmost importance.
*We must receive your ballot by midnight EST on Friday, January the 21st. That's 5am on the 22nd in London and 9pm on the 21st in California. If you live outside of that 8-hour umbrella, please consult a global timezone map.

Beginning the 24th, J0rdan will countdown the singles and I'll follow with albums once he finishes. As with the recent 20th century poll, our man behind the curtain is seandalai. Shower him with praise for handling the computation.

The online ballot and master nomination lists will be linked shortly so voting can begin. Thank you for participating!

Was thinking it would be nice to allow split weighted/unweighted ballots this year - with trax in particular I have ~10 favourites but would quite like to spread points evenly among the other 15.

sean doily, Tuesday, 6 December 2011 16:14 (nine years ago) link

I think we threw in that option before closing voting last year? Maybe we didn't.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 6 December 2011 16:15 (nine years ago) link

We decided not to include it, I think.

I don't think we allow compilations of old material, do we? (assuming that's what your last nom is)

END BRONY CAPITALISM (sean doily), Tuesday, 6 December 2011 16:37 (nine years ago) link

Single artist greatest hits comps have traditionally been disallowed, but compilations like that where the end result is really the only place you can find such songs (essentially making it a "new" creation) are fine with me.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 6 December 2011 16:39 (nine years ago) link

I'm sure we've allowed comps before. Or maybe that was just stuff that lay dormant and unreleased at the time, so although it was old it was still the first release.

Illia Rump (emil.y), Tuesday, 6 December 2011 16:40 (nine years ago) link

I'd be sad if I couldn't nominate Bangs & Works Vol.2 as it's one of the newest, most relevant things to come out this year, and no you can't really get hold of the individual tracks without going to Chicago and sifting through thousands of records.

Ok cool.

END BRONY CAPITALISM (sean doily), Tuesday, 6 December 2011 16:48 (nine years ago) link

I guess basically comps will have to be included on a case by case basis. Things like archival various artist comps should always be allowed, because the end result of grouping all those tracks together is a "new" creation. Technically a single artist comp is new as well, but that just doesn't smell right for what we're doing here.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 6 December 2011 16:49 (nine years ago) link

(Unless it's a single artist comp of previously scarce or unreleased material, i.e. Arthur Russell from a few years back)

synthpop of the Gnostics (henrietta lacks), Tuesday, 6 December 2011 16:55 (nine years ago) link

I feel a little weird listing compilations, actually, but this whole strand of Pakistani music was unfamiliar to me (not that I know much about Pakistani music) and I assume it's largely unheard in the west. It wouldn't surprise me if most of this music is also nearly forgotten in Pakistan, since a lot of it was riding western popular music trends of the time, obviously.

The Original 7ven is the band formerly known as the Time. I'll add my tracks to the Spotify list. Kitchen's Sink are genius--Australian punk somewhere between Flipper and garage jangle pop. Here's the video for 116.

Pete Scholtes, Friday, 30 December 2011 21:13 (nine years ago) link

I'd also strongly rep for the Unknown Mortal Orchestra album, which was slow to flower on me, but really emerged as one of the more unusual and beautiful albums of the year.

ah ironically it's only county line that was already nominated.

hmm i definitely prefer the Pistol Annies to the new Miranda solo, but to be honest i'm starting to find her a little annoying. not sure why, i find something in her voice just a little too smug and unfeeling from time to time.

actually as a proxy for my wife i will put in some commercial country tracks from this year that i've enjoyed when she's played them:

Tracks -

The Band Perry - If I Die Young
Rascal Flatts - Easy ft Natasha Beddingfield

that Band Perry album is actually really enjoyable!

Shanell-My Button

25/25

Have been saving my last nomination for a while, was planning to use it for the Horrors album but I've totally fallen in love with this song over the last couple of days.

TBH I don't really know what my top albums of the year are. I've missed out on so much. Still 12 nominations remaining but I doubt I'll use them all (if any).

Do we still nominate here even though ILX is back up? If so, here are the handful of things that might populate the lower reaches of my ballot, since everything important has been covered already - a.k.a. I LOVE YOU ILM.

TRACKS

Delilah - Go
Dark0 - HYLI
Kirko Bangz - Drank In My Cup
Ke$ha - Shots On The Hood Of My Car
Carly Rae Jepsen - Call Me Maybe
TV on the Radio - Will Do
Prince Club - Love Jackson (Original Mix)
The Good Natured - Skeleton
Active Child - Playing House (feat. How to Dress Well)
Seany Mac - One of Those Days (Organ Mix)

Re: that last one by Seany Mac - it was released (according to the internet) in 2009, but none of us knew about it until this year when it appeared on two mixes by Physical Therapy and How to Dress Well. Do we do "year of impact on ILM" or is it totally out of the question?

Keep noms in here for the moment. I'll make a thread on proper ILM later tonight.
