Favourite Records of the Year. Selected by: Polkov

With their single ‚Promised Land‘, Polkov clinged to the upper regions of the domestic indie charts. But one thing needs to be said at this point: every other song from the captivating summer dream of a debut album by the band from Graz could have taken that spot, with their style-savvy country-homages and grandiose folk-pop-tweaks. Now, before the next singles from Polkov cuddle themselves through airplay, Laurenz Jandl tells us which records apart from ‚Polkov‚ should not be missed in 2014.

Deerhoof – ‚La Isla Bonita‚
The War On Drugs – ‚Lost in the Dream‚
We’re with the critics on that one – album oft he year.
Damon Albarn – ‚Everyday Robots‚
Damon Albarn.
Ryan Adams – ‚Ryan Adams‚
Probably the best Ryan Adams album since ‚29


Spoon – ‚They Want My Soul‚
Together with ‚Lost in the Dream‚ and ‚Everyday Robots‚ another record close to (lyrical and musical) transcendence.

Honorable Mention:
Ryuichi Sakamoto – ‚Three‚
All „Hits“ by Sakamoto for piano, cello and violin. No questions asked.
