Sans – “Inte ens natten”

December 19, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Sans

I have to turn the volume up quite a bit to be able hear anything when I start to listen to  Sans new album “Inte ens natten”. It’s almost like they deliverately have turned down the volume as a comment to all radio mastered music, where others try to push out as much volume as possible, hoping to shout down all other music. I’m met by a sound bordering to mono, which also takes some time getting used to, but when I finally get into the Sans world there’s a lot of beauty to discover here; poetic, beautiful lyrics in a dreamy, soft, shoegaze-like melodic pop. Personally I prefer when the sound pops out of the speakers enfolding me with it’s own atmosphere, instead of sounding from within a box, but at the same time Sans music feels so characteristic with this that it’s maybe an important part of their low-voiced music. Turn up the volume and listen for yourself in a couple of songs here below.

Star Horse – “Crush”

Star Horse

The shoegaze band Star Horse released their debut EP “Crush” in the beginning of the month. It’s a quite pleasant experience with dreamy, light shoegaze, massive layered guitars and a relatively small sound, on the border to lo-fi. I get impressions of humility, joy of music and a charming ingenuousness in the beautiful melodies. Listen for yourself here below in the beautiful PLS (Song For Rico) about a lost and missed friend.

Francobollo – “Basketball”

Francobollo

Today I changed the design here on the blog, as I was seriously tired of the old look. I hope that you’ll feel more comfortable here now, with less clutter and more air to breathe. So, this is the first post on the new site.

And it’s about Francobollo, a band of soulful lunatics that moved to London and apparently are on the way of having quite some success there with their music. The music videos are indeed something special together with the songs, and when you have seen them their “lo-fi grunge-pop” appear to be contagious. They have earlier released the single “I Found a Bike Today” and now, a couple of weeks ago, the new song “Basketball”. You’ll also find the song “Sense” here below.

They then moved back to their home countries Sweden and England respectively, continuing their music collaboration.

Släktträff och Dödsmord

No, it’s not a headline from the evening papers (Family Reunion and Death Homicide). It’s actually two artists that call their solo projects  Släktträff and Dödsmord respectively, and who have choses to release a split-EP together. The EP is called “Till allt som varit dött” and can be heard on Soundcloud. And their music do fit together well, with Släktträff’s instrumental music and Dödsmord’s lo-fi indie. You can listen to a song from both artists here below.

Släktträff was started by Alexander Sjöstedt in 2008 and has so far released two albums and an EP, which you can listen to on Spotify. You can also find Släktträff  on Facebook and on Soundcloud.

Dödsmord has been around since 2009 directed by Oskar Östby. He says that it’s “an attempt to test and show if  the beautiful can be that disgusting ugly, and the ugly to be the most beautiful.” Follow Dödsmord on Facebook and on Soundcloud.
