Beste albums van 2012

best

Holy motors! 2012. Quite a mixed bag this year. One of the most mentioned bands was named after a keyboard shortcut used on Apple to insert the Greek letter Delta (Alt-J). And the probably most eccentric album was made by, well, a seventy year old! (Scott Walker).  A sincere thank you to all contributors.

  1. Klopt. Maar misschien lijkt dit zo omdat in overzichten van oor, rolling stone, the wire, pitchfork, etc veel dezelfde bands genoemd worden door de betreffende medewerkers. in mijn overzicht heb ik het gevoel dat de deelnemers zich niet of minder hebben laten beinvloeden door deze media-achtige ‘gettovorming’, hypes of ‘wat je geacht wordt goed te vinden’.vandaar wellicht die bijzondere variëteit. veel ervan ken ik ook niet eens. heel bijzonder.

  2. 1. Patrick Watson – Adventures in your own Backyard
    2. Daiqing Tana + Haya band – Migration
    3. Sigur rós – Valtari
    4. R.U.T.A. – Na uschod
    5. Muse – the 2nd law
    6. Filastine – Loot
    7. Emel Mathlouthi – Kelmti Horra
    8. Dead can dance – Anastsis
    9. CéU – Caravana Sereia Bloom
    10. Mariem Hassan – El Aaiun Egdad

  3. @Sarah shame on me is nergens voor nodig hoor. Ik ken ook veel genoemde bands niet. Spotify biedt veelal uitkomst.

  4. Ah, was ik zoooo afwijkend dat ik niet meer mee mocht doen? ;-)

    Stiekem dan toch:
