Best Music Ever

a new version of THE LIST [05.11.08] - Rate Your Music

this edition of THE LIST contains the top 400 albums, as rated by those on my favorite users list. updated bi-monthly (or so) to reflect evolving tastes as we journey together.

the point of the list is to grasp the intangible - that is, the best musical releases, including LPs, EPs and live albums, according to those whose opinions i respect, and to thereby provide a serious reference for those who are fortunate enough to have a similar musical worldview. the point of THE LIST is not to state what is and what is not a great album. THE LIST is for reference and comparison and discussion.

In what promises to be Dirter’s busiest year yet, 2008 continues with the release of this collaboration between Nurse With Wound’s Liles, and Peron of Faust.

Neither of these artists needs any introduction and all expectations are overtaken with this incredible album. Here is something that sounds like a both a “Krautrock” album and also like nothing you can imagine. Its twists and turns keep surprising and thrilling you several listens on from the first. The words “classic” and masterpiece” would not be out of place here. Both Faust and NWW are touring all over the World this year, and profile for both of these legendary acts has never been higher. This release is packaged in a gloss laminated digipac, with beautiful artwork by Liles.

New Kompakt signings Pluxus are a pleasure to listen to, and a headache to describe. They are, truly, quite unclassifiable. While techno and electro elements certainly run through the Swedish trio’s music, they’re warped almost beyond recognition. Their forthcoming Solid State album is a sprawling, immersive record of fuzzed-up digital melodies, as if Kraftwerk had melted and were slowly being trodden into the sand. See, told you it was difficult to describe..

new 2008 album: Rune Grammofon RCD 2075 - Elephant9: Dodovoodoo

Excellent new trio consisting of Ståle Storløkken (Supersilent, Humcrush) on keyboards, Nikolai Eilertsen (The National Bank, Lester) on bass and Torstein Lofthus (Shining) on drums. Storløkken mostly concentrating on organ and electric piano gives the album a late sixtees, early seventees flavour with traces of rock, jazz, prog and psychedelia. The rock solid rhythm section gives it all a contemporary edge and we get an extremely tight little unit with a high degree of great musicianship as well as pure joy in their playing. Already a firm live favourite on the Norwegian scene for a couple of years due to a handful of highly energetic and enthusiastically received concerts, they have transfered their live promise to the recording studio with ease. The album was recorded live to analogue tape in Grand Sport Studio, Oslo.

Release: 26.05.08
