Dream Curtain – “Unknown Ends”

I’ve written before about William Hamparsomian and his solo project Dream Curtain. Yesterday he finally released the excellent debut album “Unknown Ends”. And it feels good with an entire album  from William, where we get to explore more of his dreamy, hypnotic soundscape, which we recognize some of before. Here it’s also mixed with quite a dose of analogue electro pop with nice melodies, at least in a more obvious way than before. You can listen to and dowload the album on his Bandcamp page.

Faråker – “Sista fajten”

Faråker har just released a new single, “Sista fajten”. It’s pop in his characteristic dialect from Blekinge, but angrier and rawer than ever before. The strongest track I’ve heard so far from Faråker.

Lilla Milo

Lilla Milo is a band that started out in Malmö, but where some of the members are living in Stockholm today. Since they began in 2010 they have released threes singles, a couple of videos and toured around Sweden on clubs and festivals. When I listen I get a lot of soul vibes, a lot of them coming from the singer Cosima Lamberth’s wonderful soulful voice. Here are two of the singles and also a great live recording of the song “Du sa”, a song that hasn’t been released yet.
I’d like to add that the drummer Jonnie Holmberg, from the band, has started a blog about the music scene in Malmö which is worth reading. Recommended if you’re intrested in this, and know how to read Swedish.

Dream Curtain – “Glowing”

Dream Curtain

Here’s another production from Dream Curtain, aka William Hamparsomian. “Glowing” is the name of the song, a song that follows in the tracks of the predecessors with it’s dreamy experimental electronica, maybe this time a little more changing with more surprises around the corners than the earlier songs. He’s definitely carved out his very own sound now, a sound that can be recognized, which is an accomplishment in itself.

Dream Curtain

I thought that I should end this day with some more dreamy electronica in this post. It’s Dream Curtain with the song “This Landscape Is Our Escape” which was released earlier today.

Dream Curtain

Normally William Hamparsomian plays and writes music in the band Another Nation’s National Anthem. Last year he started writing music on his own and created the project Dream Curtain to have an outlet for these songs.

Here it’s about a dreamy electronica, somewhat lo-fi and far from the band’s guitar driven, alternative rock. He tells that the music is created spontaneouly at the spur of the moment, and that it’s difficult to remember what he thought about when he created it, and that applies to the artist name as well. But now afterwards he finds the word combination quite fitting with the curtain as something to hide behind and the music that is derived from the dreams, from the subconsious mind.

You can listen more on Dream Curtain’s Soundcloud page and follow him on Facebook.
