Favourite Records of the Year. Selected by: Polkov

While the hope for a second LP doesn’t seem to be unwarranted, a short appendix to their debut serves to bring back to mind, why a new album by Polkov is one of the most anticipated ones in the near future: Ho Un Gatto (Si Chiama Vendetta) captivates with three sun-soaked nostalgic tunes, and masterfully dances above indie, pop and folk. Mastermind Laurenz Jandl found the time to tell us about his favourite albums of the past year.

Grimes – [amazon_link id=“B0170XBN32″ target=“_blank“ ]Art Angels[/amazon_link]

IMO the best Grimes record to date.

Bully – [amazon_link id=“B00VTYG78U“ target=“_blank“ ]Feels Like[/amazon_link]

The most „true“ record I’ve heard in quite some time.

Bob Dylan – [amazon_link id=“B00QR7ZM8A“ target=“_blank“ ]Shadows in the Night[/amazon_link]

A must-have for fans of the late-later Dylan and Sinatra.

James Kirk – [amazon_link id=“B0000942NM“ target=“_blank“ ]You Can Make It If You Boogie[/amazon_link]

Actually that’s from 2003, but I only discovered it in 2015. A masterpiece of pop, James Kirk is one of the very greatest (who never actually made – or in his case wanted – it).

Laura Marling – [amazon_link id=“B00R6YFV2U“ target=“_blank“ ]Short Movie[/amazon_link]

Without a doubt the most keen and talented singer-songwriter of this decade.

Honorable Mention:

Timber Timbre – [amazon_link id=“B00I0IL23I“ target=“_blank“ ]Hot Dreams[/amazon_link]

Also discovered one year too late, but this album has accompanied me for the last twelve months.
