Schlagwort Archiv: The Proper Ornaments

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!!

Wundertüte

Wer kann sich noch daran erinnern, an den Glücksmoment der guten alten Wundertüte? Aber nein, die gerollte rauschhafte Mischung ist damit nicht gemeint, sondern die verschlossenen bunten Päckchen für Kinder, in denen sich nebst Süßigkeiten noch einige Überraschungen befinden. In der Ungewissheit steckt das eigentliche Erfolgsgeheimnis, denn zunächst einmal wird mit der Wundertüte die Neugierde geweckt. Auch in der heutigen Ausgabe von Golden Glades wird vorweg nicht verraten was kommt, also: lasst euch überraschen!

Trip Down Memory Lane

Kaum ein vernünftiger Mensch wird bestreiten, dass die Popmusik der 1960er Jahre äußerst offen und experimentierfreudig war – und dass sich diese Haltung in einigen der besten Platten aller Zeiten niedergeschlagen hat, üppig instrumentiert und reich an Melodien. Heute wird sowohl in Sachen Soundästhetik als auch in der Harmonieführung wieder gern auf die Sixties Bezug genommen. Neue Platten u.a. von Brent Cash, The Proper Ornaments und CaStLeS zeigen auf ganz unterschiedliche Weise, wie sich das goldene Zeitalter in der zeitgenössischen Popmusik manifestiert.

Musik rund ums Jahr

Zum neuen Jahr präsentiert Golden Glades wie gewohnt eine musikalische Jahresuhr: ein Lied zu jedem Monat, eine Ode zu jeder Jahreszeit. Wir erleben im Schnelldurchlauf, wie die Erde auf ihrem Weg um die Sonne etwa 940 Millionen Kilometer zurücklegt, und begegnen dabei so unterschiedlichen Zeitgenossen wie Mercury Rev, Trust Fund und Marker Starling.
