Grosse année de découverte musicale infinie, surtout grâce à bandcamp. Mon disque préféré et celui que j’ai le plus écouté c’est le troisième de Sweat Like An Ape! – Spells That Rhyme. C’était magique de faire une tournée Euro Oromocto Diamond avec eux au printemps. Merci les amis de faire de la musique importante, ça fait danser dans la nuit et ça m’inspire des chansons.

Sam Murdock TOP 2015


2015 – quelle magnifique année de musique. J’ai écouté plus de 250 albums. C’est comme si tous les groupes de mon enfance étaient sortis de leurs retraites pour se remettre à l’œuvre, tandis que de fantastiques nouveaux bands de jeunes voyaient le jour, pour nous donner envie de créer, de danser et de jouer. C’était aussi les 11 ans de P572, nous avons assemblé, numéroté et enregistré de la musique pendant 12 mois sans arrêt. Au printemps, Oromocto Diamond a lancé Opononi et nous sommes partis en tournée en Europe pour chanter les chansons d’Opo. Anyway, c’est toujours difficile de résumer une année de musique, d’art, de rencontres et de livres et de faire ça en top liste.

2015, what a wonderful year of music it was. I’ve listened to more than 250 albums. It seems like every band from my childhood came out of a cave and released new music, along with amazing new bands of youthful gangs that make you want to create, dance and play. This was the 11th year of P572 and we’ve put together, numbered and recorded so many albums that it was a party all year long. Oromocto Diamond released Opononi in the spring and we went on tour in Europe, which was quite the spiritual journey.
