(2011 end-of-year lists) – FREDERIC NOGRAY

I asked some of my favorite musicians from Beirut and beyond, to tell me what their favorite records of 2011 were…

French musician Frédéric Nogray (The Imaginary Soundscapes) answered thus:

“N’ayant pas ou peu acheté et écouté de disques récents tous ces derniers mois, je ne suis pas forcément au courant de ce qui est sorti. Et de ce que j’ai entendu peu de choses retiendraient mon attention. Pas assez en tout cas pour en retenir 10. Ce sera donc un Top 1 :
“Honeysuckle Æons” de Current 93. Très bel album, touchant. Ma bande son pour cette fin d’année.”

And for non-French speakers:
Not having bought or listened to that many recent albums in the last few months, I am not well qualified to cite any current releases. And from I’ve actually listened to, very few albums have caught my attention extensively. Not enough, anyhow, to make up a list of ten favorites.
It will a “Top 1”, then: Current 93’s Honeysuckle Æons; a gorgeous, touching album. My personal soundtrack for the end of this year.
