A decade is about to end and we should all be grateful that a war that would affect the whole of the world did not happen. Other important political events around the globe, had a strong impact on everyone and most of the artists that we love, responded to them with sound, powerful soundscapes and dynamic lyrics. music_of_the_decade_best_albumsDuring this decade, Blaue Rosen, has been ‘born’, it has taken up a form and continues to evolve. We have been fascinated by new independent artists, independent labels, festivals that support new and well-established bands, and genre-defying artists. Each month we are publishing a new monthly playlist that contains our favourite releases so that we can create a soundtrack at the end of each year. Each monthly playlist is accompanied by mini reviews of each of the releases that it contains. In addition we constantly strive to take interviews from those musicians that inspire us the most and whose artistic qualities fascinate us. We will do more during the following years!

The music that has been written and has been performed during the last 10 years, tells a powerful story, unique to the period that inspired it. The visuals that accompany these albums, support this story at a symbolic level.  New bands have released amazing debut albums during this decade and well established, all-time favourite bands have taken up a ‘heavier’ sound, maybe as a response to the ‘heavier’ political climate around the globe. All this music accompanied us throughout these years and helped us evolve both our musical taste and our aesthetics.

These are the albums we distinguished out of each of the playlists we have created throughout the decade and the albums we danced to during the decade 2010-2019. Congratulations to all the musicians/bands!

Thank you for your support!

neubautenSeven years have passed since the release of their last studio album called ‘The Jewels’ and one year from the release of the 12” called ‘Interpretations‘ with Perc a.k.a Alistair Wells. Einstürzende Neubauten is the band which, since 1980, embodies the essence of musical experimentation in such a way that each note that comes out from their custom built musical instruments, seems to make some sort of personal, emotional and ideological statement on the altar of experimentation. The band’s members have been far from idle in the meantime with Blixa Bargeld releasing outstanding EPs (‘ Still Smiling‘, ‘Spring‘) together with Teho Teardo. Alexander Hacke is being involved with The Crime and The City Solutions (‘American Twilight‘ was released in 2013) and The Ministry of Wolves (debut album called ‘Music From Republik Der Wölfe‘ was released in 2014) and has released the 12” called ‘C’Est Si Bon‘ with Iris Berben in 2014. Jochen Arbeit has been releasing solo albums and in 2014 the album called ‘Propulsion‘ was self released together with Scanner a.k.a Robin Rimbaud. Finally Rudi Moser released two solo albums and the last one called ‘Piano Arpeggio‘ was a limited release available through the online shop of  Einstürzende Neubauten.
