Albums of the Year: Max Rieger
©Patrick Herzog

It’s a bit hard to keep track with all the different projects Max Rieger is involved in: Besides the constant assault of Die Nerven, his very own label All Holes Records gave off some black metal shots from the hip, the first and only live performance by Jauche was made available, and his name showed up on even more credits of other artists like Karies. And still, it feels like in 2016 All Diese Gewalt’s sophomore album Welt In Klammern stood above all of that, a fascinating record, unfathomably pulsating between pop, drone and electronica, that creates atmospheric and imaginative soundscapes.

bon-iver-22-a-millionBon Iver – 22, A Million

To me, the most progressive album of 2016. Hats off, against all odds, this is a wonderful, irritating piece of music.

Gonjasufi - CallusGonjasufi – Callus

I believe Gonjasufi is the coolest dude on this planet. And his new record completely reflects that. So busted and still larger than life. Work in progress as desirable final status. Huge..
Favourite Track: Your Maker.

Favourite Track: Komm mich besuchen.

oracles-bedroom-eyesOracles – Bedroom Eyes

Psycho-Pop from the Kohlenpott… or something like that. Was completely lost, undeservedly so.

Kanye West - The Life of PabloKanye West – The Life of Pablo

Well, okay, not as good as Yeezus, but “good” is the wrong word anyway… visionary, manic album – a bit off the mark, but only a bit.

tristan-reverb-senseless-presenceTristan Rêverb – Senseless Presence

Withdrawn, intimate record with a tendency for traveling to space… wonderful work by daddy Ralv Milberg.Milberg.

ryuichi-sakamoto-the-revenantSoundtrack – The Revenant

When I’m full of the aforementioned records, then the soundtrack of The Revenant helps. Please play very loud.
