Schlagwort Archiv: Hand Habits

Best of 2017

Best of 2017 Corridor, Mauno, This is the Kit, Onmi, Hands Habit. Brent Cash, Crepes, Faith Healer

Here I am, doing it all wrong again by releasing my Best of 2017 list way before Xmas. Every year it shows, that I discover fabulous artists with some delay and I feel sorry these albums are missing the list, only because I wasn’t quick enough! Like in 2016, I failed to mention these excellent records:

Merk: Swordfish (self-released)
Snails: Safe in Silence (Fearl Child Records)
Minta & The Brook Trout: Slow (NorteSul)
CaStLeS: Foresteering (Hafod Mastering)
Ben Reed: Station Masters (Gare Du Nord)

If you haven’t heard of any of those artists, please check them out!

And here they are, the winners of the 2017 Golden Glades award:

 

Corridor: Supermercado (Requiem Pour Un Twister)
Mauno: Tuning (Tin Angel)
This Is the Kit: Moonshine Freeze (Rough Trade)
Brent Cash: The New High (Marina Records)
Raoul Vignal: The Silver Veil (Talitres)
The Parson Red Heads: Blurred Harmony (Fluff and Gravy)
Crepes: Channel Four (Deaf Ambition)
Sweet Baboo: Wild Imagination (Moshi Moshi)
Andrew Taylor: From The Outside Looking In (Rock Indiana)
Hand Habits: Wildly Idle (Humble Before The Void) (Woodsist)
Omni: Multi-Task (Trouble In Mind)
Faith Healer: Try (Mint Records)

The Proper Ornaments: Foxhole (Tough Love)
Travis Bretzer: Bubble Gum (Human Sounds)
Baby Island: Break the Lease (Hello Records)
Human Heat: All Is Too Much (Offline Records)

Of course this list is a purely subjective affair, but if you feel like I missed a highlight, please let me know!!

Lipstick Traces

Am Anfang stand ein Mix-Tape, das sich meine kleine Nichte gewünscht hatte, mit tanzbarer Musik und weiblichen Stimmen. Daraus resultierte der Plan für eine Golden Glades-Ausgabe, die sich mit Frauen in der Musik befassen sollte, aber bitte abseits der altbekannten Lady-Pop und Riot Grrrl-Pfade. Trotzdem gibt es in dieser Sendung mitunter schwere Gitarren und eindeutige Statements zu hören, denn ganz egal, wie man es dreht: das Musikbusiness ist nach wie vor in männlicher Hand – und folglich werden Künstlerinnen nicht müde, sich mit Genderfragen zu beschäftigen, auf eigene und clevere Art, darunter Sally Seltman, Tennis und Ghost Thoughts.

Unsolved Mysteries

Wieso wurde die Popmusik nicht schon längst begraben? Weshalb enden manche Songs als Ohrwurm, auch wenn man sie gar nicht leiden kann? Warum gibt es keine wasserdichte Pop-Formel mit Hitgarantie? Diese und andere cold cases stehen heute bei Golden Glades zur Wiedervorlage an. Lösungen können wir keine versprechen, wohl aber einen schönen Mix, der den Pop-Mysterien auf der Spur bleibt.
