Born in Poland but now based out of Calgary, Canada, Valiska creates gritty, overcast soundscapes inspired by the likes of Tim Hecker, Rafael Anton Irisarri, and Grouper. Although his hometown is often overshadowed by other Canadian cities such as Montreal, Valiska has been part of an insular but slowly expanding scene, exploring strands of experimental drone and ambient.

We’re continuing with our exploration of a year that was. Tonight’s selection comes courtesy of Valiska aka Krzysztof Sujata, Canadian musician whose output can be found on such labels as Flaming Pines and Trouble In Utopia.

12 favorites of the year – in no particular order:
Saloli – The Deep End
Maya Beiser & David Lang – The Day
Jessica Moss – Entanglement
Clarice Jensen – For This From That Will Be Filled
Park Jiha – Communion
Alex Zhang Hungtai – Divine Weight
CV & JAB — Zin Taylor – Thoughts of a Dot as it Travels a Surface
Mary Lattimore – Hundreds of Days
Dedekind Cut – Tahoe
Anna Von Hausswolff – Dead Magic
Anenon – Tongue
Lea Bertucci – ‘Metal Aether’
