The year is coming to an end, which is undoubtedly the best thing that could be said about this year so far. An end-of-the-year mood also prevails in the Popsalon . Balzer and Müller ask one last time for the traditional review of the year before Christmas, crises and catastrophes play a role, but at least this year also included a lot of beautiful and awful, but in any case interesting music. Flamenco-R'n'B-Hyperpop and South African Techno proved to be the music of the future, a pansexual singing mushroom from the island of the trolls pleased ears and minds, and even from HipHop and from Baden-Württemberg came once again products worth listening to.

For the discussion of the tops and flops of 2022, there is a roundtable of top critics:

Joachim Hentschel writes for the Süddeutsche Zeitung and published Dann sind wir Helden , the standard pop-historical work on German-German music of the 1980s and the fall of the Berlin Wall, in the spring; Vivian Perkovic hosts everyone's last favorite TV show, Kulturzeit on 3sat, and makes even the laziest discussion group shake; Jenni Zylka is not only a famous psychobilly orgler and favorite columnist on radioeins, but recently also the director of Perspektive Deutsches Kino at the Berlinale.

Without question, more intellectual vibrations are not offered anywhere on a December evening in Berlin. Afterwards, there's mulled wine and pastries on the terrace.
