Albums of the Year List by: The Ocean

© Kamil Janowski

Chris Breuer more or less jumped in at the deep end: after Bassist Louis Jucker left The Ocean to concentrate on his studies, it was up to the Saarland-Berliner to sustain the dynamic groove below the pressing progressive post-metal of the multinational group surrounding mastermind Robin Staps. And Breuer arrived just in time to become part of ‚Pelagial‚, another mighty conceptional chunk by The Ocean. Right before setting out for their next tour, Chris Breuer told HeavyPop for the annual Advent calendar what records accompanied him throught this past year.

Chelsea Wolfe – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00E0P92EQ“ target=“_blank“ ]Pain Is Beauty[/amazon_link]‘
All the rage, and rightfully so. Absolutely adorable.

Death Grips – ‚Government Plates
Zach Hill, I love you. Noise on the highest stage. That’s how real punk looks today. Anti.

Boards of Canada – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00CISC2DA“ target=“_blank“ ]Tomorrow’s Harvest[/amazon_link]‘
A pleasure for the ears.

Uncle Acid & The Dead Beats – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00BG23LYS“ target=“_blank“ ]Mind Control[/amazon_link]‘
Besides Graveyard and Earthless one of the few true/worthy representatives of this whole retro-psychedelic-rock-wave. Incredibly good album.

Future Of The Left – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00EZP9VYM“ target=“_blank“ ]How to Stop Your Brain in An Accident[/amazon_link]‘
The Mclusky successor Future of the Left leaves nothing to be desired. This album’s sound is a revelation.

Coilguns – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00AWB8PWM“ target=“_blank“ ]Commuters[/amazon_link]‘
Outstandingly good album by the Swiss trio. It was an honor to share the stage with two of these guys. I’m thrilled which things are to come. More cabs please!

Clutch – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00B1ME3DQ“ target=“_blank“ ]Earth Rocker[/amazon_link]‘
Makes really thirsty. Genious album by the rock institution.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00AFOS6P2″ target=“_blank“ ]Push the Sky Away[/amazon_link]‘
Sadly missed them in Berlin. What can I say, I’m a fan.
