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 – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00NF1WV9Y“ target=“_blank“ ]La Isla Bonita[/amazon_link]‘
Ultracool.
The War On Drugs – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00H2A2T2S“ target=“_blank“ ]Lost in the Dream[/amazon_link]‘
We’re with the critics on that one – album oft he year.
Damon Albarn – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00HYFGSPU“ target=“_blank“ ]Everyday Robots[/amazon_link]‘
Damon Albarn.
Ryan Adams – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00LGATVO4″ target=“_blank“ ]Ryan Adams[/amazon_link]‘
Probably the best Ryan Adams album since ‚29

 

Spoon – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00KXZV8VM“ target=“_blank“ ]They Want My Soul[/amazon_link]‘
Together with ‚Lost in the Dream‚ and ‚Everyday Robots‚ another record close to (lyrical and musical) transcendence.

Honorable Mention:
Ryuichi Sakamoto – ‚[amazon_link id=“B00CXMOH7A“ target=“_blank“ ]Three[/amazon_link]‘
All „Hits“ by Sakamoto for piano, cello and violin. No questions asked.
