Slaraffenland’s Favorite Album of 2009:
"Dirty Projectors ‘Bitte Orca’
This one got 3 of 5 votes. Other candidates was Animal Collective and The XX.”
Slaraffenland’s Favorite Movie of 2009:
“‘Antichrist’ by Lars Von Trier
Niklas, Bjørn and Jeppe did not see this movie, but Christian and Mike persuaded the others because the movie really made a big impression on them. The movie has been very controversial, because of some people’s perception of the movie as being misogynist. Von Trier’s movies has always been controversial, but this one is by far the most beautiful and yet scary movie in a long time.”
Slaraffenland’s Favorite Discovery of 2009:
"Our best new discovery this year is a Laser Spirit Level! We used it to build the floor in our new studio. BIG HELP!
The studio is not finished yet, but we are working on the place when we’re not on tour. It will be awesome when it’s done.”
Slaraffenland’s Favorite Show of 2009 (Played or Attended):
"The best show we’ve played this year was a show we did @ Voxhall in Århus, Denmark in May at the Pop Revo Festival. The crowd was great and the venue was awesome.
Christian heard Faith No More on Roskilde Festival this year, and he really loved that show. Other great shows has been Eagles of Death Metal in Copenhagen.”
Slaraffenland’s Favorite Moment of 2009:
"The day where we did the Temporary Slaraffenland movie with Vincent Moon, was very special. It was a beautiful sunday in May, and it will be a day we will all remember. In November, the movie was screened at the CPH:DOX festival in Copenhagen. This was a special and memorable day as well.”
Hometapes released Slaraffenland’s "We’re on Your Side" album on LP and CD this year, as well as a 7” single for the album track “Meet and Greet,” all featuring the magical art of Cody Hudson.
