Bild: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanal_5_(Sweden)
(sb) So, jetzt wird's international und dies ist vermutlich der erste Artikel in der luserlounge, der hauptsächlich auf Englisch erscheint. Heute präsentiert Euch Robin Mortensen von Apollon Records, der uns regelmäßig mit dem neuesten heißen Shice aus Skandinavien (in erste Linie aus Norwegen) versorgt, seine Top-Scheiben des Jahres 2017. Kennt Ihr irgendwas davon?
Nein? Dann wird's Zeit, denn es lohnt sich!

 
Alben des Jahres:

Platz 3:                
Major Parkinson - Blackbox (Karisma)
This excellent fourth album from these Norwegian is one of the most enigmatic, ambitious and grand album you will hear in 2017.    


 


Platz 2:                
The National - Sleep Well Beast (4AD)
The National, The US indie heroes are back, stronger than ever! Enough said!                



Platz 1:                
Susanne Sundfør - Music For People In Trouble (Bella Union)
This Norwegian Art-pop Goddess has finally got a deal with a big indie label (Bella Union) and then, of course, delivers her most uncommericial and personal album to date on her 5th album. It’s still excellent though. Check also out her song with Røyksopp (Running To The Sea), The Oblivion song she did with M83 and her 3 previous albums Ten Love Songs, The Silicon Veil & The Brothel. She should have been a big star (as she is in her native Norway).   

 
 
Songs des Jahres:

Platz 3:                
Waaktaar & Zoe - Beautful Burnout
Waaktaar is of course Pål Waaktaar from A-ha. This is probably one of the most overlooked song and albums (World of Trouble ( Drabant)) all year. Much better of any of A-ha’s latest releases and very different. Zoe is a young singer from New York. This song is highly recommended.


 
Platz 2:                
Trojka - Drømmeløs
From the album I Speilvendthet (Tik Records/ Apollon). The perfect match between pop and prog. Sung in Norwegian.                



Platz 1:                
Susanne Sundfør - Undercover



 
Geheimtipp für 2018:
I’m not finished with 2017 yet.
