our dreams lie buried in the snow

music music music 2015

here is my list of the best of 2015. 

there were some major disappointments (mylene farmer i mean you!) and some that i feel i should of got into but just couldn't be bothered (lou doillon) but also some fantastic music worth checking out if you don't know them. 

if there's anything not on the list that you think i need to know about, let me know! 
so, in no particular order......

music of the year

LITTLE BOOTS - WORKING GIRL
80's power dressing meets 90's club beats. good work!
also saw her perfom in leeds last month - a top night

Labels: ,

music of the year

SUSANNE SUNDFOR - TEN LOVE SONGS
a collection of angry synthpop, murderous disco with a blissed-out norwegian folk edge. marvellous.

Labels: ,

music of the year

LIA PAMINA - HOW COME I (e.p.)
2015 heralds the year of the saviour of all things doll. she just gets 'it', she gets us! 
her voice is perfect, her song choices couldn't be better (walk on the wide side, sunday mondays - there's loads on youtube). cannot wait for an album

Labels: ,

music of the year

MADONNA - REBEL HEART
this album got me through the worst year in my life. great tunes, excellent production, some great humour and generally just amazing songs that allowed me to escape during my darkest moments.

Labels: ,

music of the year

ALEX BEAUPAIN - LES GENS DANS L'ENVELOPPE
this is actually a book that has an accompanying cd with it. i don't quite get it - i think isabelle monnin found some photos and created a story out of them then alex used that as inspiration for the music - which is amazing. i say it almost every year - he is a genius

Labels: ,

music of the year

ANNIE - ENDLESS VACATION (e.p.)
annie is the perfect popstar and her flashback to the 90s is spot on.
 shame there's no video

Labels:

music of the year

ARIANE MOFFATT - 22h22
who knew arianne would embrace electro so brilliantly?

Labels: ,

music of the year

KYLIE + GARIBAY (e.p.)
let's ignore her hideous christmas album and lets just focus on when kylie is good,
 because when she is good, she is very very good.

Labels: ,

music of the year

GIORGIO MORODER - DEJA-VU
a triumphant return after a 23 year absence. helped along by kylie, sia, foxes, and charli xcx amongst others. still proving that disco does not suck!

Labels:

music of the year


CALOGERO - LES FEUX D'ARTIFICE
not my usual style of music but i do have a great big soft spot for calo, this song written by 
a huge fave of mine, alex beaupain is a great example

music of the year

vanbot - trooper

i know nobodys favourite france gall era is the 70s/80s michel berger one, but i thought you might have a mild interest in this - their music together has been made into a musical currently playing in france. watching this hasn't made me whip out my credit card for a ticket but it was nice to see france at the end of the clip being appreciated.
