Best albums so far 2017

Yes, it’s finally summer! June is soon over so we decided to collect our favourite album so far from 2017. So much music this year and this is the albums (in no particular order) we’ve been listening to on repeat. Let us know what we have missed.

Big Thief

Capacity

Well, this indie rock band from Brooklyn, New York blew us away this year. Adrianne Lenker beautiful voice and lyrics together with fantastic pop music. We can’t stand still when we listen to “Shark Smile” and it’s our favourite noise this year.

Perfume Genius

No Shape

That voice! That melody! Everything fits perfectly on Perfume Genius fourth studio album. No Shape is a great album with songs that gets better with every listen. “Now watch me, Watch me walk on by, Honestly, Next one won’t be free”.

Arca

Arca

Venezuelan music producer Arca released his self-titled third studio album earlier this year. It is his first album where Arca himself is singing in Spanish. Which we have to give thanks to Björk, because she was the one that convinced him to sing to his music.

Kendrick Lamar

DAMN.

We can’t stop listening to this album! The first song DNA. got us trapped and every beat and rhyme after that got us hypnotized. Brilliant.

Michael Mayer

DJ-Kicks

Michael Mayer made one of this years best mixtape. Filled with disco, electro, techno it made us dance from the start. This is one of our favourite from the DJ-Kicks series.

Ellen Allien

Nost

Every time Ellen Allien drop something new it’s on our top ten charts of that year. Always interesting and the perfect techno for the dance floor at 5:30 in the morning.


the_xx_-_i_see_you

The xx

I See You

One of this year’s albums with the most expectations on it and The xx delivered. A music record that will be heard throughout the summer.

All Them Witches

Sleeping Through The War

A great psychedelic rock album from Nashville and All Them Witchess. “Sleeping Through The War” is their fourth record and they have a created a unique sound that we love!

Kelly Lee Owens

Kelly Lee Owens

This is Kelly Lee Owens first solo album and it’s massive. Her beautiful voice together with techno beats got us dancing. It will be on repeat this summer and we hope to see her performing live this summer.

Drake

More Life

Gave more life to all the parties earlier this year when it dropped. Amazing.

Talaboman

The Night Land

What a perfect mix. John Talabot and Axel Boman made a perfect record for late nights and early mornings. We need more of this!


max_richter-2017-three_worlds-music_from_woolf_works

Max Richter

Three Worlds: Music From Woolf Works

Max Richter’s music to the Wayne McGregor’s award-winning ballet triptych, inspired by the writings of Virginia Woolf. Beautiful and a perfect harmony with the minimal electro and the classical music.

Migos

Culture

Probably the best hip hop album this year.

Young Thug

Beautiful Thugger Girls

Young Thug seems to be everywhere this year and and so is the “Beautiful Thugger Girls” album. Everywhere we go this seems to be on repeat.

SZA

This album was worth the wait since her first album “Z” from 2016. Beautiful songs and brilliant lyrics.
