Two Seattle labels—Hardly Art at #14 and Debacle at #20—made online zine Impose’s best of 2011 list. Both are well deserving of the honor, but the inclusion of Debacle is especially heartening. Run by Megabats member Sam Melancon, the imprint issued a lot of impressive experimental electronic and drone-based music this year. Crystal Hell Pool, Sorry, Brain Fruit, Karnak Temples, Daniel Bachman, and Melancon’s own Megabats all delivered important works in beautifully designed CDs.
