Gjesteliste: The Wombats

The Wombats forbereder for tiden slipp av sitt andre album, This Modern Glitch, og vi spurte bassist Tord Øverland Knutsen om hva han har satt mest pris på i 2010. Og en liten guilty pleasure.

The Wombats

Elverumsgutten Tord Øverland Knutsen spiller bass i The Wombats, bandet som pumpet ut indiehits fra sitt første album, A Guide To Love, Loss And Desperation. Man har vel neppe glemt låter som Let's Dance To Joy Division eller Moving To New York. Nå er karusellen i gang igjen, og The Wombats legger verden for sine føtter nok en gang. Singelen Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves) er allerede ute, og albumet ventes i april.

I mellomtiden kan vi nyte noen flere høydepunkter fra 2010, fem album og fem singler:

Five albums:

Yeasayer - Odd Blood

- Got fun summer memories from this album, driving through Lake District with Yeasayer on the stereo. The perfect soundtrack for the northern landscape or sweaty indie clubs, makes this one of the most exciting pop album this year for me. Production is great to!

Jónsi - Go

- This first solo record from the Sigur Ros singer, sees him from a happier side than his work the band. His voice is amazing as usual, but this time with more percussive elements in the arrangements, english lyrics, but still as epic as the Sigur Ros records. With production assistance from Peter Katis, he has created a really original pop album that sounds very different to any other albums this year.

The National - High Violet

- Went to see The National in Manchester Academy on they're High Violet tour, and was one of the best gigs I've seen this year. This self-produced album ( co-produced by Peter Katis) is darker than the previous two albums, 'Alligator' and 'Boxer' (albums everyone have to check out!). Although 'Boxer' is probably still my favorite National album, I think High Violet is a solid 5th album from one of the most interesting bands around at the moment.

Arcade Fire -The Suburbs

- Arcade Fire's 3rd album is probably one of the most pre-release-talked about albums this year and lives up to the hype. Another classic album from the Canadian band!

Broken Social Scene - Forgiveness Rock Record

- One of my favorite bands, BSS new album 'Forgiveness Rock Record', is the most song based album they've released yet. Produced by John McEntire also known as drummer in Tortoise/Sea and cake, they've made another album that are more than good enough for the 2010 top 5 albums!

Five singles:

Darwin Deez - Radar Detector

- Big song from the NY quirksters!

Team Me - Weathervanes and Chemicals

- First single from this norwegian outfit, is a cracker of a song, but also the computer game made for the single is a lot of fun.Try it here: http://www.teammegame.com/

Yeasayer - O.N.E.

- This is one of the highlights from the 'Odd Blood' album.

The Drums - Lets Go Surfing

- Fun band live and a fun song with a lot of Beach Boys vibes for this track.

Katy perry - Teenage Dream

- My guilty pleasure...
