The only Animal left – “Bleached”

October 8, 2015 at 5:47 pm

The only Animal left

Here’s a band that directly made a big impression on me when I heard their music the first time last week. With a 4-piece line-up that includes both double bass and accordion they create a grand, epic ambience which sends shiver of pleasure down my spine when the songs peak. They play Americana, with a fateful and sometimes dramatic vibe where the singer Daniel Renström has both the strength and the right blackness in his voice to carry this home. So far they have released a single with two tracks, which you can listen to here below. If you’re in Stockholm on the 23rd of October you can go and see them perform at Pet Sounds Bar.

Rooni – “YODO” EP

October 5, 2015 at 3:43 pm


The trio Rooni, with the songwriter Gustav Nilsson at the front, have just released their new EP “YODO”. The title is an acronym for “You Only Die Once”, paraphrasing the popular expression YOLO. Gustav writes that he became a first time father a year ago, an experience that made him start thinking about his own mortality, which is now reflected in these songs. It is hardly a gloomy collection of songs, though, rather the opposite. It feels life-affirming and the EP is full of uplifting, playful indiepop. The songs have a straight-on approach with simple, catchy choruses, stirring bass melodies and a nice unpolished sound which makes it feel like they’ve just been pulled out, smoking hot, from the power pop oven. Listen to a couple of tracks from the EP:

Filip Lundgren – “Allting är historia”

Filip Lundgren

Filip Lundgren is preparing for his upcoming album release with this new single, “Allting är historia”. The song feels like an obvious sing-along favourite on his future gigs and reminds me quite a bit of Broder Daniel in the chorus. With the song he wants to remind us to really se what’s happening around us, here and now, and urges us to act now to prevent history from repeating itself with racism and fascism holding us in its cold grip.
The debut album “Där Inget Annat Finns” will be launched on the 16th of October.

Club 8 – “Love Dies”

October 2, 2015 at 1:57 pm

Club 8

Johan Angergård is continuing an incredibly productive year, where he’s released albums with both The Legends and Eternal Death, by releasing the ninth album from Club 8. As before Karolina Komstedt is by his side on the upcoming record “Pleasure”, which will be out on November 20th. Here’s a first taste in the shape of the single “Love Dies”, a beautifully melancholic synthpop vibing song. After a quick prelisten of the the album I can say that there are plenty of high class electropop in the same spirit to look forward to if you like this single.

Akiine – “Paranormal Activity”

September 30, 2015 at 5:33 pm


Akiine is back with a new single, “Paranormal Activity”, which is also a taste of her upcoming EP “Neptune”, to be released on the 30th of October. The song feels like trip back to where I first heard her in a minimalistic music with her soft soul voice at the front. There’s a shimmer of retro patina over her vocals, like if she were a Billie Holiday of the 10′s, but at the same time I get the feeling that she comes from a different dimension, a dreamy, hypnotically beautiful and warm dimension. The best I’ve heard so far from Akiine.
