Wahnsinnig eindrucksvolles Comeback der Isländerin. Mit großartig arrangierten Songs, tollen Gästen (u.a. Antony Hegarty), Produzenten und Aufnahmeleitern (Arca, The Haxan Cloak, Michael Pärt)!

Locas In Love – Use Your Illusion 3 & 4

http://locasinlove.com/#/

Label: Downbeat

Genre: Indie-Pop

Die Kölner haben dieses Jahr zwei Alben herausgebracht, vor kurzem Kalender, im Februar das an Guns N‘ Roses humorvoll angelehnte Use Your Illusion 3 & 4. Letzteres ist insbesondere in textlicher Hinsicht das noch etwas stärkere Werk.

Joanna Newsom – Divers

www.joanna-newsom.com/

Label: Drag City

Genre: Kammerpop / Folk

Ihr Meisterwerk Ys ist wohl nicht zu schlagen. Aber was Joanna Newsom hier präsentiert, ist einfach höchst aufregend und wahrhaft episch!

Steven Wilson – Hand. Cannot. Erase.

www.stevenwilsonhq.com/

Label: Kscope

Genre: Progressive-Rock

Immer wenn man glaubt, der Porcupine Tree-Sänger könne doch ausnahmsweise auch mal schwächeln oder zumindest auf hohem Niveau stagnieren, belehrt er uns Hörer eines Besseren. Hand. Cannot. Erase. ist ein faszinierendes Wunderwerk, das eine höchst tragische Geschichte erzählt (inspiriert von einer wahren Begebenheit, dem Tod von Joyce Carol Vincent).
