My completely pointless list of important music… (Repost)

Alright people,

The new year has come and this always makes people all gooey and sentimental. I must admit that the following list started life after a few schnapses with my brother and a couple of good friends.

I know that this list TOTALLY sells me out and I don’t care. I am proud of my choices. Also, I will add to this list whenever I please, dammit!

Most Overlooked Albums (for whatever reason) in Recent Memory:

Kashmir – The Good Life. This album should have been the biggest export success in Danish music history.
Fielfraz – Slick. World Class Songs – Production gone mad. Best Singer in Denmark.
Cactus Circle – Cactus Circle. Before there was anything called Swan Lee, there was this magnificent band. One album – An unknown Classic.
Cartridge – Enfant Terrible. My most overlooked work of 2006. This band is brilliant.
Dial Zero – Dial Zero. Just about the most brilliant band I have ever seen play. Fuck people’s expectations when the debut album came out. These guys were not gonna save Indie. They are just here to make incredible music. A Force Of Nature and the best guitar player I have ever known.
Oh No Ono – Yes. I never thought that the teenybopper image that was pushed onto this great band was deserved. This is a awesome debut album with power, hits and sound. The fact that they look great shouldn’t hurt them.
Span – Mass Distraction. Norwegian Aerosmith (Pre-Walk This Way) – Oh, my god I miss this band… They ALMOST made it. If they reformed, I would produce for 2 pennies and a pack of gum. (and 5% of PPD with a $25k advance, but I digress..)
Ibens – Ufornuft. This is a controversial one. Danish girly-man pop by a bunch of whimps – On the surface. They strongest danish lyricist in this generation. Humor, intelligence, emotions and the ability to get to the fuckin point without dissappearing up his own ass. I absolutely love most of these songs for their content. IMHO Carsten outshines all the recent “Syng Dansk”-lyricists.
The Fashion – The Fashion. The best Danish album of 2007. Time will prove me right.
