My fave thirteen albums of 2018 (so far)

von: Michael Engelbrecht Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off


01.Brian Eno: Music for Installations ***** (my choice of number one is free of personal taste) 02. Steve Tibbetts: The Life Of ***** (aural bliss) / 03. The National Jazz Trio Of Scotland: Standards Vol. 4 ***** (In another year without records by Robert Wyatt, this is the ecstasy of understatement!) / 04. Jon Hopkins: Singularity ***** (everybody’s talking about psychedelia here, but it’s certainly the work a sharp mind) 05. Yo La Tengo: There‘s A Riot Goin‘ On **** 1/2 (we‘re going in the underground, underground, underground – now all of you!) / 06. Jakob Bro: Returnings **** 1/2 (producer Manfred Eicher never loses it – blue, blue, blue, and free) / 07.  Fire!: The Hands **** 1/2 (killer album) / 08.  Nils Frahm: All Melody **** 1/2 (makes me believe in new age, fucking heavenly music) / 09. Christina Vantzou: No. 4 **** (oh my gosh, if she would have been my math teacher, I would have reached for symmetrical skies) / 10. Sly and Robbie with Nils Petter Molvaer et al: Nordub **** (minor quibble: the title) / 11.  Dave Liebman / Adam Rudolph / Tatsuya Nakatani: The Unknowable **** (so it sounds, when jazz is a mystery and not a style) / 12. Venetian Snares & Daniel Lanois: dito **** (beware, if this record is a dog, it really bites, impossible music of highest order) / 13. Gas: Rausch **** (always different, always the same, the music „rocks“ inside)
