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.)

Martin BentancourtA song of contrasts is presented for me late by night. Strangely enough, it doesn’t happen often these days that MC:s from the land of Falukorv, makes political statements. But with the song “Nytt Land” (New Country), Bentancourt breaks this trend by rapping politically at the same time that he, together with his girlfriend Shacko Damidez and David Silva, performs an angry song in a joyful way.

The decision about the FRA Law in Sweden this summer, made a lot of people irritated and with the hook “Släpp mitt SMS” (Release my SMS), the trio has a good opportunity to be heard across the barricades.

On the Myspace page of Bentancourt you can find a lot of good music. The track that attracts me the most is “Dansa” (Dance), which I think deserves a lot more attention. With an intro that invites you to think that Gonza is on the scene, a beat and a hook that feels like Kaah, my neck starts swinging back and forth.

I received a press release together with the song “Nytt Land”, which I have presented below (translated from Swedish), as it sets the theme of the latest release from Bentancourt.

(Read about the FRA law)

But first – the mp3:

Nytt Land

And the Myspace pages of:

David Silva

Martin Bentancourt

Press release:

”NYTT LAND” (New Country)


”Det är ett nytt land sen vår integritet försvann”
(It’s a new country since our integrity went away)

Whether you are angry with the FRA law or not, you won’t be able to resist this year’s grooviest counter-reaction!

NYTT LAND expresses anger, surprise and disappointment.
And when you’re angry, sometimes it’s also easy to feel powerless.
Then it’s better to dance, sing and clap hands.
Turn that anger into something sexy baby!

”Släpp mitt SMS” (Release my SMS)

Martin Bentancourt is the artist and radio talker with the direct opinions. Before he has released the classic “första generationens svenne”, the song that became an important voice for an entire generation.

Now he has teamed up with his girlfriend Shacko Damidez and David Silva, to create the song you can listen to when you’re making the placards or blogging your opinions!

”Vill stoppa terrorister, så de stoppar mina kärleksbrev i register”
(want to stop terrorists, so they put my love letters in registers)
