KarossNo matter how nice it is with really great massive guitars that cover your body, that feeling still intensifies when the songs are based on a guitar melody. The band Kaross performs this beautifully! There’s a drive throughout the songs that carries them all the way and offers great music. Combine that with a great, hoarse rock’n’roll voice and you get magic.

Kaross have played together since 2000 and in 2005 they won a local rock contest, Partillerocken, and got the record deal that was the first prize. The album was released in 2007 through the company Eastground records.

You can listen to and download two great rock-and-rolling songs. On their Myspace page, you can listen to a pretty cool tune, “Old Vinyl”, that draws your mind towards the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Unfortunately without the rockabilly guitar.

In BloomAlthough bordering genres that are almost overloaded these days, with a lot of skilful bands that resembles eachother a little bit too much, In Bloom has definitely found their own way.
A grunge feeling is mixed with nice melodic refrains, but what makes them unique is the sound. The guitar base is lightly disted acoustic guitars, performed by the singer and songwriter of the band, Pär Eriksson, which renders a certain nearness. This feeling is also enhanced by sensitive arrangements and good lyrics.

The band released their debut album, “With Faded Lights” in July on Blue Topaz Recordings , and I’m proud to be able to present two songs from the album below, “Somewhere” and “Succeed”.

The video for “Somewhere” (and yes, according to sources, it took quite som effort to sing and run at the same time ;-))
