2006 In Review for Deep Water Zine

Some thoughts on the best releases of 2006 are posted here. Also check out the thoughts of my fellow Deep Water scribes Kevin Moist, Mats Gustafsson and Lee Jackson.

This is the time of year I like to call "nailing smoke to a wall time". With the proliferation of releases on CD and LP on major and minor labels, and the explosion of artifacts issued by the handmade CD-R underground, chances of actually hearing more than an infinitesimal sample of what's going on are slim, and add to that the increasing impact of download only releases and you've got an exercise on par with sorting out the shenanigans of quantum particles. Nonetheless, here is a selection of ten releases that stayed with me more than briefly - works that in effect became invisible co-travelers in the hurtling rail cart that was my passage through 2006. More.
