Big corporations may have a stranglehold on the modern music industry, but it’s the genuine music enthusiasts with their independent labels and knowledge of their respected genres who feed it by their intuition to recognise talent.

In the five years since its formation on 13th March 2010, The Electricity Club has reviewed over 130 albums and EPs. During this time, the album has become less of an artistic statement. TEC still loves a good album in whatever format so which long players still stand up to scrutiny and can claim to have lasted the course over the last five years?
Listed in by year then alphabetical order, with a restriction of one album per artists and no recent releases from 2015, here are The Electricity Club’s 30 favourite albums from the period between 2010 to 2014. More Inside ›
The profile of Norwegian singer / songwriter / producer SUSANNE SUNDFØR is probably at its career zenith right now, thanks to some quality collaborations with a number of high profile friends. Her last album ‘The Silicone Veil’ in 2012 was her UK debut and saw her experimenting more within electronica.
Since then, there has been her epic guest lead vocal on M83’s ‘Oblivion’ for the theme song of the same titled Tom Cruise film, as well as key appearances with fellow Norwegians RÖYKSOPP and Swedish producer KLEERUP. This all sets the scene nicely for SUSANNE SUNDFØR’s new, eagerly anticipated solo album ‘Ten Love Songs’. More Inside ›
With a less intense release schedule than last year, it was a bit more straightforward for The Electricity Club to choose its songs of 2014. Whereas 2013 had a short list of 45 songs, 2014 was closer to 35 although not the struggle to find 30 as was the case in 2012.
As usual, they are listed in alphabetical order and all have been released either in physical formats, or digitally as purchasable or free downloads during the calendar year. Limited to one song per artist moniker, here are TEC’s 30 Songs of 2014. More Inside ›
