Simon Christensen

2016 har været et sørgeligt år. Politisk, musikalsk, medmenneskeligt. Hvad skal vi med musik, hvis den ikke engang kan flytte mennesker? Jeg har haft utroligt svært ved at koncentrere mig, og jeg har lyttet til rigtigt meget til ældre værker, forstået i bredest mulige forstand, i stedet for ny musik. Vi har også mistet mange betydningsfulde kunstnere i året, der er gået. Else Marie Pade, Nana Vasconcelos, Pauline Oliveros, Arnold Palmer, men det er for mig ikke en grund til at sætte tiden i stå og sørge ved sin pladespiller. Årets plader for mig:

The Caretaker: “Everything at the End of Time” (History Always Favours the Winners)
Tyshawn Sorey: “The Inner Spectrum of Variables” (Pi Recordings)
serpentwithfeet: “blisters” (Tri Angle)

Foodman: “Ez Minzoku” (Orange Milk)
Chris Marker: “La Jetée” (Superior Viaduct)
Pekka Airaksinen: “Vitae Tennis Nest” (One Point Life)
Syrinx: “Tumblers From the Vault” (RVNG)

Kim Elgaard Andersen

Jeg har lavet min liste alfabetisk fordi jeg ikke synes det giver mening at rangere dem hierarkisk efter kvalitet. Desuden er der det antal plader jeg nu engang vil anbefale og ikke en begrænsning på en top 10 eller 20. Der er dem jeg nu engang kan stå inde for. Næste år er det færre eller flere. Og jeg har ikke skelet til om der er kvinder, handicappede eller folk der spiser Kærgården på de anbefalede plader. Det er ikke relevant for musikkens kvalitet.

Mette Slot Johnsen (P/A’s London-kontor)

Internationale albums:
Cate Le Bon: “Crab Day” (Drag City)
Skal gladelig indrømme, at jeg nærmer mig det pinlige superfan-stadie mht. Cate Le Bon. Formidable tekster og musik – og hendes humor og utroligt legende liveshows løfter det op på et helt unikt niveau.

Jenny Hval: “Blood Bitch” (Sacred Bones)
Lige meget om man er født med æggestokke eller ej, burde dette album gøre indtryk. Jenny Hval og hendes fellow blood bitches lyder både lidt skræmmende og totalt uimodståelige: “Don’t be afraid / It’s only blood.”

Daniel Wohl: “Holographic” (New Amsterdam)
Svingende mellem det skrøbelige og det enerverende ender det her album med at gå under huden på en uventet måde: Lydbidder sidder fast, selv om de egentlig syntes at være en ubetydelig lille del i et komplekst kunstværk.

Ulrika Spacek: “The Album Paranoia” (Tough Love)
Det der lokale band, som kan ses mindst et par gange om måneden … og så udgav et af årets bedste albums på Tough Love Records. Psykedelisk shoegaze, som kan få tårerne til at trille.

Eleanor Friedberger: “New View” (Frenchkiss)
Et ret poppet indslag, men med fine og ganske gribende sange om at forlade byen og dertilhørende drama, lige præcis efter at legen var holdt op med at være god.

Danske albums:
Marching Church: “Telling It Like It Is” (Sacred Bones)
Vildt ørehængende og til tider samtidig seriøst verdenstræt. Men sådan er den bedste musik vist altid i min lejr.

Jaleh Negari: “Arch Waves” (Eget Værelse)
Hun eksperimenterer på en rigtig spændende måde og handler tydeligt på egne præmisser. Helt hypnotiserende og fuld af lys og leg.

Yung: “A Youthful Dream” (Fat Possum)
Bliver aldrig træt af det band! Sangene brænder lige igennem, fulde af simultan eksistentiel angst og eufori.

Jomi Massage: “Ritualer for Fællesskaber” (The Being Music)
Hun er bare så sej og frygtløs. Den der stemme… Smukke tekster og smuk musik, som virkelig vil noget og ikke er bange for at sige det, som det er.

The Entrepreneurs: “Tony Rominger” (Like a Can of Beans)
Super produktion: stramt og alligevel løst. Tungt og alligevel let. Mathias Bertelsens stemme svæver rundt helt oppe i toppen af “Routine Lines” og lader melankolien blafre. Der er så mange modsætninger i The Entrepreneurs’ lyd-elementer, som virker så godt i deres sammenspil.

Live:
Anohni @ Barbican – Dybt rørende. En vanvittig smuk, og knusende uforglemmelig oplevelse. Decideret musikalsk og moralsk PTSD bagefter.

Less Win + The Bodies @ Shacklewell Arms – Hurtigt og vredt og fuldt af energi. En line-up med god smag af old school-punk på kanten af post-.

The Raincoats & Angel Olsen @ Islington Assembly Hall – Levende legender og en nyere aspirant. Punk helt igennem, og smukt generations- og genrekrydsende samarbejde.

Dan Deacon @ Roundhouse – Sjovt og charmerende og til sidst helt ekstatisk. Et eksempel på en perfekt kulisse til en koncert, hvor rummet spillede med.

The Cure @ Wembley – Totalt fantastisk på alle tænkelige måder. Er ikke ellers lige til stadionkoncerter med potentielt afdankede rockstjerner. Men det her var tre timers magi med et band i musikalsk topform og ægte spilleglæde. Og en kæmpe bunke af evigt aktuelle sange.

Oddsize:
Soundcloud: Them Bones/Marie Eline Hansens Soundcloud – en strøm af smukke skitser fra en fascinerende kunstner med en masse på hjerte. Det føles meget personligt: som sider i en dagbogsagtig dokumentation af en tumultarisk tid.

Poet: Kate Tempest – “The Bricks That Built the Houses” og “Let them Eat Chaos” m.fl. Hun er utrolig inspirerende. Hendes intensitet, sprog og rytme gør det umuligt ikke at blive revet med!

Film: “American Honey” af Andrea Arnold. Bl.a. på grund af soundtracket og de uforglemmelige billeder sidder denne moderne pendant til “Vredens druer” fast i både hovedet og kroppen, lang tid efter at den er rullet af skærmen.

Website: Scarfolk Council – Satirisk tonic for sjælen: Et website, som skarpt spidder Storbritannien. Også løst forbundet med pladeselskabet Ghost Box under Folk Horror Revival-paraplyen.

Netradio: Radiooooo – En musikalsk tidsrejsemaskine, når man mangler lidt inspiration.
