FILTER’s Top 10 of 2013: Roman Remains
By Staff on December 2, 2013
When it comes to end-of-year lists, it's definitely not all about us; we love to know what our favorite musicians and artists have been digging the most out of 2013, too, and we're thrilled to share those lists here.
Roman Remains is Liela Moss and Toby Butler, formerly of The Duke Spirit. The electronic duo released their beat-heavy EP Energy You in November of this year. Check out their list of like-minded list of beatmakers below.
Roman Remains' Top 10 of 2013
1. MIA, Matangi
"I love MIA. Her albums are like someone throwing multi-coloured paint in your face. Matangi is a glorious assault of the senses."
2. Atoms For Peace, Amok
"The first song 'Default' had me by the scruff straight away. The weirder, minimal, and glitchy Thom Yorke gets the more I like it."
3. The Knife, Shaking The Habitual
"Welcome to their world!"
4. Depeche Mode, Delta Machine
"Having loved Depeche Mode for a long time, I'm always excited about a new album. This is back to the feel of Violator and Songs of Faith and Devotion. I love the light and shade of Gahan and Gore."
5. Kanye West, Yeezus
"It's all about the production."
6. QOTSA, ...Like Clockwork
"One of only a handful of rock and roll bands who know the roll is as important as the rock."
7. NIN, Hesitation Marks
"Again, the more minimal and out there Trent Reznor gets the more I like it. His albums are like precision instruments. Like robots with hearts. I also love that you feel he's always searching."
8. Pusha T, "Numbers on the Board " (single)
"It's all about the production of this track. All you need is a one note bass line and a dirty loop."
9. SUUNS, Images Du Futur
"The track 2020 on this album is one of my favourite tracks of the year. It's got some proper low end! The album is also great, and very individual. They're not treading anyone else's path."
10. Fuck Buttons, Slow Focus
"Another assault of an album. They go where they want, and I'll happily come with them."
