Bruce – “Folk kämpar”

December 12, 2012 at 5:59 pm


I will stay in Malmö with today’s second post. It’s the band Bruce, who recently released their debut ep “Folk kämpar” (“People struggle”), an album which is recorded live from what I understand, and which tastes warm garage rock and punk shot straight from the heart. They say themselves that they’ve been inspired by BRMC, Captain Beefheart and Pascal and also by artists like Tom Waits and Bryan Ferry.

No Favours – “Hands & Hearts”

No Favours

Here’s an interesting new trio from Malmö, No Favours, that released the single “Hands & Hearts” a couple of weeks ago. It’s also one of the songs from the debut album, which will be released now in December. Nicely rough, garage-punkish with vibes of  Sonic Youth-rock and shoegaze. There are also a couple of earlier songs to listen to on their Bandcamp page.

Rättens Krater – “Stora stöten”

Rättens Krater

I have just finished reading Dante’s “Inferno” and maybe some parts of this journey through hell could have had Rättens Krater’s EP “Stora stöten” (“The big hit”) as a soundtrack. They have also that in common that they mix antique mythological references with visions of hell and a night dark view of society. It’s a cool chaotic garage-sounding lo-fi-punk with lyrics that is packed with images, which to me seems quite different, at least if I compare with the punk I’m used to hear. Somewhere I feel some references to punk from the early eighties to which they add their own approaches like when they for example make the chorus swing in the song below “Der Totenfluss Styx”.

Le Muhr – “Flickorna på klubben”

Le Muhr

It took the band Le Muhr five years to launch a follow-up to the debut album from 2007, “Generation destruktiv”. The EP “Flickorna på klubben” with it’s six tracks was released in the beginning of this year and feels like a kajal painted soundtrack to the big city’s decadent night life, viewed with cynical and ironic eyes. There’s a lot of the eighties in their synth-punk-new wave and the contents would probably have worked just as good back then as it works today.

Gamla Pengar – “Vackra land som ingenting gav”

Gamla Pengar

Gamla Pengar comes from Göteborg and delivers an uncompromising punk rock, which reminds me of classic Swedish punk from the eighties, on the latest three-track EP “Vackra land som ingenting gav”. With anger and garage-raw, melodic punk they cut greed and consumption along the ankles. And with a great rock swing too. Here below is the starting track “Här är ditt liv”.
