Human Interactions: Agnes Obel's Favourite Albums
The Quietus , October 14th, 2014 12:27

With two UK dates bringing her European tour to a close next week, the Danish singer-songwriter self-pens us a top albums rundown


The Doors - Strange Days
This one contains all my favourite Doors songs: 'People Are Strange', 'When The Music's Over', 'Strange Days'. One of those albums where you know the next song before it's begun. The blend of jazz and Eastern influences in the more experimental parts reminds me of Ege Bamyasi by Can. Ray Manzarek was an amazing keyboardist. He is why I still go back and listen to this album, even after over-listening to it for many years.
