In this new weekly feature a record lover highlights his or her three favourite Belgian vinyl records.
1. Placebo - Placebo Years 1971 - 1974
Lefto: Marc Moulin is one of my all-time favorite musicians, and his total discography is phenomenal, call it a masterpiece. This record has some of his best tracks, and my favorite Placebo track “Bälek”.
2. Raphael - Stop, Look, Listen
Lefto: Not much is known about Raphaël, an obscure musician who lived in Brussels and apparently had an amazing vinyl collection as well in the attic. This jazz-fusion record mixed with a soprano opera singer has the sound of what heaven could sound like….maybe.
3. Starflam - Starflam
Lefto: One of the most successful rap groups in the history of Belgian rap. This is a cult album with bold political statements and dark music.
