The Best Albums Of March According To Playground

An overview of the top ten on this month's chart

April has started, so it's time to look back on the cream of last month’s crop. Here's a list of the ten albums that made the deepest impression on the PlayGround staff in March. Check it out (and listen to it, as well) in our monthly chartsection. Here we go!

10. Mirroring: “Mirroring” (Kranky)

Mirroring is the joint venture by Liz Harris (Grouper) and Jessy Fortino (Tiny Vipers), a new dazzling excursion to the heart of dream-pop built from showers of drones.

Review Mirroring

Listen

9. Mi Ami: “Decade” (100% Silk)

The Mi Ami twosome is reactivated after the hipster house boom spearheaded by Ital, and changes the art-rock of their beginnings for a lo-fi brand of electronic psychedelics that sounds like nineties disco touched by time.

Review Decade

Listen

8. Pegasvs: “Pegasvs” (Canada)

Pegasvs (Sergio Pérez García and Luciana della Villa) make their debut with an electronic steamroller that shakes up and reorganises seventies analogue music and turns it into 24-karat pop.

Review Pegasvs

Listen

7. Nite Jewel: “One Second Of Love” (Secretly Canadian)

The particular kind of eighties electronic pop that Nite Jewel had been putting out since 2009 reaches its peak on this second album, which oscillates between adult pop and fantasy, with some R&B sweetness thrown in for good measure.

Review One Second Of Love

Listen

6. Belbury Poly: “The Belbury Tales” (Ghost Box)

New retro-futurist transmissions from Jim Jupp, it has plenty of vintage synths, references to the magic past of British folk and Canterbury progressive rock. Not to mention the indisputable guarantee of the Ghost Box label.

Review The Belbury Tales

Listen

5. Chromatics: “Kill For Love” (Italians Do It Better)

After weeks of speculation and advance videos, the much-anticipated new Chromatics album finally came out: 17 songs destined to become the soundtrack of more than one cold night.

Review Kill For Love

Listen

4. Petar Dundov: “Ideas From The Pond” (Music Man)

Techno, trance and cosmic music united in sweet harmony on an album that will take you higher. Croatian Petar Dundov does his reputation as a first-rate producer honour and delivers his most complete effort to date.

Review Ideas From The Pond

Listen

3. The Burrell Brothers: “The Nu Groove Years 1988-1992” (Nu Groove)

Rush Hour does right by the legacy of The Burrell Brothers, delivering a compilation of their work on Nu Groove, bearing witness to the capital influence the duo's had on deep-house.

Review The Nu Groove Years 1988-1992

Listen

2. Big K.R.I.T.: “4Eva N A Day” (mixtape)

Big K.R.I.T. offers caviar for free: his new mixtape, while we wait for his official debut on Def Jam, is atypical hip-hop, without any cameos, hits, or club bangers; just straight-up rap like in the old days.

Review 4Eva N A Day

Listen

1. Julia Holter: “Ekstasis” (RVNG INTL.)

“Ekstasis” could be the most lucid dream of this year. Julia Holter's new album eerily combines ambient, folk, psychedelics, medieval music, dream-pop and even jazz.

Review Ekstasis
