I took the cover photo for the new live album by Di Derre (lead by world famous Norwegian crime author Jo Nesbø) and the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation’s Symphonic Orchestra (KORK).
I’m sure you’ve seen all of those articles in the past few weeks. The lists where we music journalists and writers make lists of what we perceive what the best albums of the year are. What these lists have in common is that you’ve maybe heard about two of the ten artists on the list. Not with me! Here are my favourites from 2018.
This autumn Jean-Michel Jarre turned 70. In the past three years he has released two double albums, one single album and this September, a huge compilation box called Planet Jarre. The latter to celebrate his 50th anniversary as an artist. He’s also been touring most of these years with a ground breaking light and laser show, and he also played Coachella this year.
You know that moment, the very special moment, where you hear a song that just grabs you by the throat, creeps into your ears and brain, and just sends chills down your spine? Ladies and germs, I give you Age of Man by Greta Van Fleet!
A while back I sat backstage, chatting with a friend of mine who is a singer and musician. We started talking about Robyn, because we were both huge fans of her Body Talk trilogy. It was then we realised that it was 8 years since that release!
