Top Ten of 2017: Tim Krug of Hexadiode, Oh Condor

Dayton, Ohio-based multi-instrumentalist Tim Krug is a busy guy. In addition to performing with industrial powerhouse Hexadiode, who unleashed a collection of remixes earlier this year, and noisy, ’90s indebted guitar rockers Oh Condor, he has also spent some time playing with Human Reunion, Swim Diver, and most recently, a reunited Brainiac for a couple special events.

Ghettoblaster recently caught up with Krug who shared some of his favorite releases of the year. This is what was tickling his ears.

I honestly had a difficult time making this list, knowing I probably outright missed a lot of great releases in 2017 as the year blasted by in a flurry of obligations, hectic schedules, and kind of hating the internet for the world it showed me, but here’s a loose stack of 2017 releases that I connected with and enjoyed a bunch.
