De beste albums van 2011, volgens andere betweters

Okay dan, nog een keer achterom kijken en dan is het echt afgelopen. Natuurlijk had ik mijn eigen lijstje opgesteld van beste albums van 2011, maar er zijn veel meer mensen die denken iets van goede muziek te weten, oftewel die andere betweters. En eerlijk is eerlijk, daar zitten ook albums tussen die ik blijkbaar heb gemist. Dat bewijst het nut ook wel van die lijstjes – zo kun je nog een aardige lijst opstellen van albums die ik nog kan gaan beluisteren zo aan het begin van het nieuwe jaar. Absolute winnaar (of – eh – winnares) dit jaar lijkt PJ Harvey te worden met Let England Shake. Andere platen die regelmatig worden genoemd zijn o.a. van Wilco, Spinvis, Gillian Welch, James Blake, Kurt Vile, Adele, Bon Iver, Fucked Up, Destroyer, Fleet Foxes, The War On Drugs, tUnE-yArDs, The Black Keys, Elbow, Girls, The Vaccines, Destroyer, Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys… Nou ja, je kunt de lijstjes zelf bekijken hieronder.

Dit jaar lijken de rustige indie bandjes wel de boventoon te voeren, al dan niet met een folky inslag. Niet altijd het genre om zelf helemaal wild van te worden; ik hou doorgaans van een scherp randje, met dikke gitaren, monster riffs, vette funk, rare onverwachte patronen of dikke melancholie zonder dat het al te zoet wordt – maar pin me er niet op vast. Opvallend genoeg staat Radiohead trouwens niet heel veel genoemd. Blijkbaar levert dat toch gemengde gevoelens op. Maar goed, ik kon Kid A destijds ook niet erg waarderen in het begin, maar daar staan nu wel een aantal favorieten van me op. Ik betwijfel of dat met The King Of Limbs ook gaat gebeuren. Ook de tweede van De Staat bevalt blijkbaar minder dan die bejubelde eerste. Enfin.

Wat ik dan zelf nog maar eens (of: meer) moet gaan beluisteren zijn bands als M83, True Widow, The War On Drugs, tUnE-yArDs, Wilco, St. Vincent, Gillian Welch, Kurt Vile, Girls, Ulver, Leprous, My Brightest Diamond, Pete and the Pirates, Sóley, Lotte Kestner, Wild Beasts, St. Vincent, Wye Oak, Ben Howard, The Antlers en EMA. Plus nog een aantal left-overs waar ik nog (of: verder) in wil duiken zoals Animals As Leaders, Red Fang, Houses, The Black Box Revelation, Textures, Mandrake Project, Katzenjammer, Erland & The Carnival, Paatos, Atlantis en Wooden Shjips. En nog wat metal releases. Da’s aardig veel nog.

Maar goed, dit allemaal terzijde. Want het ging er om wat de rest van de wereld er van vond (met een extra focus op Nederland, een paar twitter bekenden en andere interessante lijstjes). Mis ik iets of mis ik jouw lijstje? Gooi het gerust in de comments. Vind ik leuk!
