Dic 23 2008, 11:48 di radiobrainSeit meinem letzten Blogeintrag wurde viel gesagt, gesungen und gescrobblet. Währendessen zog das Jahr 2008 in einem unglaublichen Tempo vorbei. Nun befinden wir uns wieder in dieser Zeit der Rückblicke und Best-of’s und da möchte ich es nicht lassen, auch meine persönlichen Highlights auf Last.fm zu verewigen (wenn man das im Web so sagen kann).
Da wären also (nach langem hin und her) meine Lieblings...
...Lieder von 2008
1. Herman Düne – Someone Knows Better Than Me (Ein Ohrenschmaus und -wurm für jeden Düne Fan)
2. MGMT – Time to Pretend (Der “Sommerhit” des Jahres darf natürlich auch nicht fehlen)
3. The Mountain Goats – San Bernardino (Da könnte praktisch jedes Lied von „Heretic Pride“ stehen)
4. Bang Gang – I Know You Sleep (Die Perle aus Island)
5. Sophie Hunger – Birth-Day (Schöner als mein eigener Geburtstag)
6. Hot Chip – Ready for the Floor (Unangefochtener Electro-Hit des Jahres)
Ott 11 2008, 11:35 di ellycopterSat 4 Oct – Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, I Heart Hiroshima
Whilst other kids his age were playing in the park and trading baseball cards, he was stirring up a legacy. He self-released his first full-length album at age 12 on what has evolved today into Saddle Creek Records, one of indie rock’s most respected labels. He had made three more records and taken part in four semi-successful bands, all before his 16th birthday.
It’s clear that Conor Oberst was no ordinary child, and now, over a decade down the track, he’s showing no signs of slowing down.
After riding on the wave of his critically acclaimed outfit Bright Eyes for the past few years (and picking up a horde of finally-someone-who-understands-me angsty teenage fans), he released an album under his own name again this year with new bandmates The Mystic Valley Band, and brought his tight collection of new songs to Australia – his first visit since 2005’s Bright Eyes tour.
