If I should name a (punk)-rock record that was released this year and that will stand the test of time, there will be only one record that that is worth to be named: Savages and Adore Life. When their debut record was grounded in an punk-rock influenced sound their last record has still this roots but more improved. These ladies make the heavy sound of today. Songs filled with terrific riffs and unbeatable bass-lines makes this record worth listen from start to end more than a few times during the year. This record has the requirements to get a classic record you would name when you remember this year.
When you read this post I will be on the plane to Sri Lanka to spent the rest of the year in the Asian sun. I couldn't prepare the rest of this series in advance but I try to finish it these days. I am not sure if I can offer you some download-links but I try to offer you the music in another ways.
