Årets bedste plader

Årets bedste plader 2019: De individuelle lister

Skrevet af Redaktionen

Afrundingen af vores dækning af musikåret 2019 kommer her med offentliggørelse af Undertoner-skribenternes individuelle lister over bedste danske og udenlandske udgivelser.

Traditionen tro har Undertoner kåret det forgangne års bedste udgivelser, og som altid har Undertoner-skribenternes individuelle årslister dannet grundlaget for de samlede toplister for henholdsvis de bedste danske plader i 2019 og de bedste udenlandske plader i 2019. I år var det henholdsvis Lowly med Hifalutin og Lana del Ray med Norman Fucking Rockwell! der indtog førstepladsen på de to lister, og selvom de hver især gjorde det med en relativ solid margin ned til 2. pladsen, så var det ikke fordi, at der ikke var alternative bud.

På de individuelle lister finder vi eksempelvis 13 forskellige bud på årets bedste udenlandske plade – 13 bud der både tæller debutanter som Black Midi og gamle rockræve som Patti Smith fordelt på et hav af genrer fra hiphop til soul. Også de danske årslister stritter mange retninger, hvor især et band som Lust For Youth har scoret højt på flere lister, men lige præcis faldt udenfor den endelige liste.

Med cirka bidragsydere og omkring 30 anbefalinger per skribent, så rummer de individuelle årslister en guldmine af musikanbefalinger. Så det er bare gå i gang med at grave. God fornøjelse!
