Definitively, best of this year was to get an increasing amount of free stuff through the net with reduced (sound/image/pixel/writing/ you name it) quality, to such an extent, that many an obsessive stopped complaining about that. Lo-fi is back like a cassette “virgin” from Constutición’s markets in Buenos Aires early nineties, where the guys from Reynols collected the sources for their acclaimed Blank Tapes record, one that was made by assembling the hiss of the cheapest, noisiest and ultimately weirdly named blank tapes they could put their hands on. For next year, take advantage of your poverty, and enjoy the hiss.
