Best of 2018 - Kristoffer Rom of Tambourhinoceros
Continuing a wonderfully eclectic series of selections by label heads of repute, Kristoffer Rom of Denmark’s Tambourhinoceros picks a tremendous list of favourites from 2018.
Marlon Williams – Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore
Two of the most interesting singer songwriters around. And a song with both quality and characteristics that reminds me of one of my all time favourite songs Scott Walkers “Old Man’s Back Again”.
Mitski - Geyser
2018 has been Mitski’s year! And this song alone is enough to justify it in my opinion.
Julia Holter - I Shall Love 2
The album (Aviary) is still relatively new to me but I have a feeling it can grow into a record that’ll stick with me for years. And this song is one I’m especially fond of.
Amnesia Scanner - A.W.O.L.
Something to be absorbed by at 5am in the morning which we all need from time to time.
Moonface - Minotaur Forgiving Knossos
Who doesn’t enjoy vocoder, steel drums and xylophones? Also, Spencer Krug is really one of my favourite singers.
Serpentwithfeet - Soil
His soulful vocals blow me away every time I put this on. Also, despite being highly manipulated the production feels very intimate.
Soho Rezanejad - Six Archetypes
Listening to this record is a very intense experience. And what a way to finish off a record. Nothing should stand in her way.
Johanna Warren - Gemini II
I completely missed this when it was released but when I stumbled across it just a few weeks ago I was completely captivated by how atmospheric and haunting her voice and music are.
Yves Tumor - Safe in the Hands of Love
There’s no abiding to genre conventions here. It’s one of those records that continue to unveil new stuff for every repeat listen.
Cloud Nothings - Last Building Standing
This is much more than a hard-hitting fast-paced guitar rock; his voice is so intense and the songwriting is about as good as it gets.
