Alice Boman – “Skisser”

September 5, 2013 at 2:09 pm

Alice Boman

Alice Boman recorded sketches of songs at home to remember her song ideas, and for the fun of it. Her curiosity of how it would sound if it was recorded in a proper studio grew, though, and she sent the tracks to Emil Isaksson at Studio Möllan in Malmö. Through him the recordings reached the engaged group of people at Adrian Recordings, who became so fascinated with her music that they wanted to release it, but not in a new dress, but just like it was.

The EP “Skisser” (“Sketches”) was then released in May with these homerecorded songs, fragile, beautiful and alsmost hymnlike. And I think that they fit even better now during this early Autumn, where the ground in the nearby forest is slowly being covered with falling leaves, colouring the ground in brown, yellow and rusty red tones, while a certain stillness from the Autumn descends. Maybe Alice and the others agree with me as the EP will also be released on vinyl later in September. Listen to the EP here below.

Rigas Den Andre – “Lilla Ukraina EP”

Rigas Den Andre

Henrik von Euler has been a frequent guest here this year. Besides music from the duo Dödens Dal and solo productions with his Rigas he has now also released a new EP with his second solo project Rigas Den Andre. Here it’s about minimalistic instrumental electronica, called Skweee, with what often sounds like 8-bits synths; simple wave forms which he bends and twists into something new and unique. Here are two songs:

Georgia Barbershop – “It’s Alright, It’s Okay, It Only Took Seven Years”

Georgia Barbershop

It sounds like an old cassette tape demo recording from the seventies or eighties by an English garage- or punk band. Often I find it hard to hear the lyrics from the somewhat can-sounding vocals. It’s straight, simple rock riffs without detours and extravagance. A combination I probably wouldn’t have chosen for my music menu if it hadn’t jumped into my inbox. But it feels good listening to this, and my foot starts moving with the rough guitar rhytms. And when the bass starts pumping with a wavy sound and is followed by the catchy guitar figure in “Trees Passing”, it’s time to surrender. The band’s name is Georgia Barbershop, the album “It’s Alright, It’s Okay, It Only Took Seven Years” is their debut and they are now on their way working with their second album.

The Fiery Piano – “Second Space”

The Fiery Piano

Gustaf Montelius is back with his solo project The Fiery Piano, which I presented here the first time in 2011. Now it’s about the debut album “Second Space”, 10 songs with his own variant of bedroom pop; indie pop characterized by Gustaf’s individual voice, somewhat untidy shelves and tables, the large mixed with the small and a lot of playfulness to the nice melodies.
