music of the year 2017

hi!

i know i post sporadically and i have no idea if anyone will read this or will even care! but here is my list anyway.

the usual mix of cool french women, scandi dolls, 60's chicks, a flashback and an occasional man (french naturally!)

is there anyone i've missed?
do you have an recommendations for me?

HAPPY NEW YEAR DOLLS!

music of the year

CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG - REST
really, do i need to say anything about this? surely it's on your list too?

Labels:

music of the year

LISZA - LA VIE SAUVAGE
i have no idea how i found out about her but i'm so glad i did. a great blend of keren ann sounding vocals to smooth, francoise hardy or berry style tunes. perfect blowupdoll music. love this

Labels:

music of the year

TOVE LO - BLUE LIPS
so far, every album she has released has made my music of the year list. she writes so honestly about love, life, sex and drugs to absolutely great tunes. swedes rule!

Labels:

music of the year

CALOGERO - LIBERTE CHERIE
he never really let's me down. you know what to expect: passionate rockpop with piano balladry- not usually what i'm into but the emotions behind his lyrics and voice is so bloody good

Labels:

music of the year

MARY HOPKIN - POSTCARD (special edition)
a big thanks to lia pamina for drawing my attention to this. an unusual mix of folk, showtunes and 60s pop all produced by paul mccartney. the bonus tracks are so, so good too. think marianne, vashti and just trust me!

Labels:

music of the year

SOPHIA SOMAJO - FREUDIAN SLIP EP
cool scandinavian beats

Labels:

music of the year

TWINKLE - MICHAEL HANNAH
a 'lost' album of twinkle sounds like songs from a musical. it is her story of her enduring love and fixation on michael, the impact on her, his other relationships and ultimately letting him go. 

Labels:

music of the year

ALLIE X - COLLXTION II
cool pop. a blend of early (read: good) gaga and lana del rey with a synthesiser

Labels:

music of the year

CYRIL MOKAIESH -  CLOTURE
i came upon cyril by accident, flicking through the french channel. what a find!

Labels:

music of the year

KIM WILDE - SELECT
i know this is 35 years old but i was very happy to rediscover it this year. i was always a big kim fan as child, singing along to water on glass or cambodia. this album captures her at her zenith with her dad and brother writing her best songs full of cinematic drama.
