Jakob Baekgaard’s Best Releases of 2013
In the age of streaming and digitalization, it has been a special joy to witness the care that still goes into the packaging of physical product. At best, a record isn't just a thing to listen to, but also an artwork to contemplate. This was especially evident in the releases from Moss Project and Kolonihaven Unikum, which synthesized words, music and images into complex and beautiful artworks.
No matter what, jazz continues to thrill. There's simply so much good stuff out there and this is just a tiny tip of the iceberg.
