Salma Gandhi

August 23, 2008 at 1:57 pm

I’m sitting down with my headphones on, but I feel that I just want to get up and drift away doing some unknown dance! I want to be Travolta, but can only see myself as Uma Thurman???!!!…strange! I realize that the supercool Malmö band Salma Ghandi (just look at the name!) would fit in any Tarantino movie.

I’m sorry to say that I seldom listen to instrumental music, but when this psychedelic jazz-rock goes on and on, I just feel pure joy!
As a hot tip I can tell you that right now, Salma Ghandi is in the studio, producing a full length album. Exactly how they will realease it, is, according to the bass player Alex, not yet decided….but…how about releasing it as a free download!?

For updates about this, check out Salma Ghandi on Myspace.

Johan “John-John” Paulson

August 22, 2008 at 12:00 pm

Johan Paulson, or John-John as he calls himself, is a fantastic person in many ways. Musically he is found, among other places, as a former member of the Swedish grunge band Icke Lika Med, he has played with Håkan Hellström and performed at “Allsång på Skansen” (an extremely popular music show on Swedish TV) with his father, Mats Paulson!
It is now time for his own solo project under his own name and his own record company De las mercedes recordings with experimental, electronica/ambient songs.

To listen to the songs is like talking to or meeting Johan, it calms you down, and provides a comfortable feeling of love and warmth.

Now, here’s your chance to meet Johan, through his music. Here are three downloadable songs, and you can find much more on his web sites.

Season of Hope
Goodnight Theme

Billie the Vision and the Dancers

Billie the Vision and the DancersYou probably recognize that feeling of exaltation, that comes when you have discovered a new song or a band that’s so good that you know for sure that you will never grow tired of it. And you just want to hear it over and over again.

That’s exactly what I felt like, the first time I listened to Billie the Vision and the Dancers. I was also totally convinced that I alone had discovered a new great band…(don’t we all have a talent-scout inside of us?;-)). I was soon to discover though, that the band had been very productive, that they had released a number of albums, all free for downloading, and that they had thousands of fans. Well, my joy grew even bigger then!

Billie the Vision may be the coolest band on earth!

Shotgun Crackers

August 20, 2008 at 12:00 pm

What the Lund based band Brainpool left in the 90’s and the Gothenburg based band Bad Cash Quartet picked up at the beginning of the 21st century is now taken a step further by Shotgun Crackers from Norrtälje, north of Stockholm!

Don’t be fooled by the slightly metal sounding name. Shotgun Crackers offers a fantastic mix of great melodies, marvellous vocals (in that extremely cool childish way), accomplished musicians…..and….hand claps…..(there should definitely be more hand claps in songs!!), combined with pop music that, at times, closes in on the Beatles.

That’s what i think…

The Worst Love
She Wouldn’t Mind

Cowboy Prostitutes

August 16, 2008 at 12:00 pm

I almost got beat up once, way back when, when I thought The Cult sounded glammy…I still think that Ian would be a great glam vocalist;-)…but I do not hesitate to say that Cowboy Prostitutes sound glam. And very wonderfully glam at that! The last time I heard this type of rock, at this accomplished level, was when I listened to Hardcore Superstars debut album.

Cowboy Prostitutes have recently released a new album “Swingin’ At the fences” that will be released in Sweden, Germany, Austria and Switzerland!

Listen and download from the new album:
