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)
Balduin: Bohemian Garden (self-released)
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)
Midnight Sister: Saturn Over Sunset (Jagjaguwar)

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

Monodramen & Alleinunterhaltende

Heute widmen wir uns einer besonderen Spezies Musikschaffender: den Alleinunterhaltern. Bei ihnen liegen für gewöhnlich sämtliche Produktionsschritte in einer Hand, vom Songwriting über die Instrumentierung und Produktion bis hin zum Coverdesign. Mitunter erstaunlich, wie die einzelne Person es hinbekommt, einen tadellos kompakten Bandsound zu kreieren – und das nicht erst, seit Computerprogramme das Aufnehmen von Musik in den heimischen vier Wänden erleichtern.

Diese Sendung ist zu hören am Mittwoch, den 19.07.17 von 20:00 – 22:00 Uhr auf: ByteFM und 917xfm und ab 21:00 auf ALEX Berlin. Wdh.: samstags 15.00-17.00 Uhr (ByteFM only).

International Pop

Am 13. Mai ist es wieder einmal soweit: Der Eurovision Song Contest wird über den Bildschirm flimmern und gnadenlos vorführen, wie schlecht es derzeit um die internationale Popmusik steht. Eigentlich schade, denn wer richtig sucht, findet auch in den entlegensten Ecken der Welt hörenswerte Musikprojekte. Sandra Zettpunkt hat eine entsprechende Auswahl getroffen: Aktuelle Künstlerinnen und Künstler gehen heute bei Golden Glades für ihr jeweiliges Land an den Start und liefern damit eine Alternative zum notorischen ESC-Trash.
