Lundgren – “Lovely Dream”

September 7, 2012 at 1:33 pm


During my years of blogging here on Meadowmusic, one of my absolutely best discoveries was Andreas Lundgrens “Bad Buddha”, which I wrote about back in 2008. As he now finally released a new album, “Lovely Dream”, I was of course excited to see what it was about.

And I’m met by a painfully beautiful music. In general terms I could say that it’s a mix Americana, blues and acoustic rock. Across the somewhat desolate atmosphere road dust sweeps in and gives an authentic feeling for the journey Andreas shows us, often accompanied by a worn acoustic guitar. It’s an inner journey, which is hard not to get affected by, self-revealing and naked, as a musical showdown with himself.

It’s not heavy, rather darkly beautiful, with wonderful melodies and often a more low-voiced Andreas than before, but who sometimes rips and shakes you around. All the songs are written by Andreas except the enchanting “Why I Am” where Jade Ellis has written the lyrics, which she also sings.

To me this is without a doubt the strongest album experience I’ve hade this year. “Lovely Dream” was recently released digitally and is available on Spotify. Here are three songs from the album:

If I Get High

Bus Stop Dreams – “Come Together”

Come Together

Now we in Bus Stop Dreams have released our third single, “Come Together” (and no, it’s not a Beatles cover). There are two songs, written by Lasse Thomasson and Pär Enqvist respectively, treating the same subject but from two different perspectives. “A dystopian group cuddle” we call it.

The singer on the title track is Andreas Lundgren and on the second song “Let Us Light a Fire” Ulla Wrethagen is singing. You can listen to and download the songs here below, and you can also find these and our other songs on Bus Stop Dreams’ music page. You can find out more about Bus Stop Dreams on the site and on Facebook.

Meadowmusic celebrates 100!

October 25, 2008 at 1:00 pm

MeadowMusicThis is the hundredth post on this blog. It means that we so far have presented ninetynine artists, songwriters and producers. We thought of celebrating this by having a mini cavalcade with songs from some of the artists we have reviewed. Many of these songs are exclusive for download only here on Meadowmusic, and I hope that they are shared with people all over the world if you as a visitor like the songs.

We, here on Meadowmusic, are overwhelmed by all the support we have received since we started in the beginning of July. We started this because it felt like we were carrying around a secret that we just had to share with the world. And the secret was that there’s so much fantastic Swedish music, that seldom is played on the radio or other mainstream channels. And that this music is just as good, well, in fact much better than what is heard there. Well, it’s not a secret anymore, is it?

First we would like to thank you as a visitor, because you come here and listen to the music. Every visit, every time you listen, every recommendation to a friend, every mention of what you hear contributes to the promotion of the artists and their music, and to the support of this blog.
Thank you for all mail and tips and also for the communication with the artists.

We also would like to thank all the artists that support us. And I don’t mean only the artists that we have presented here, but also all of you that have contacted us, telling us that what we do is important and great. Thank you!

Below you’ll find some extra songs with artists from earlier posts. (Click on the artist’s name to go to the post about the artist.)

Andreas LundgrenAndreas Lundgren comes back to us as “Bad Buddha”, his latest album which is free for download on his home page. It is an album that’s rich on influences from various sources; rock, blues, folk music, funk and a lot more; straight into a fantastic mix that I can’t describe in any other way other than that it’s Andreas Lundgren. I’m drawn into the songs with their driving beat, a beat that runs through everything in different ways.

I find an open Andreas, and it feels like a journey into the dark and out to the light, from separation to longing for love. And all the songs performed with Andreas special voice, a relaxed, yes, cool voice that really comes through.

To me, this is absolutely one of the best albums I’ve heard this year and I can only congratulate you for being able to download the entire album from his home page. There you will also find two of his earlier albums “Grande Cocktail Magic” and “Green Loafers & Husky Freaks”, also free for download.

Four songs from “Bad Buddha” to enjoy and download:

Breathing Gas
Purple Wonderlight
What the Hell
Moondance Woman
