Orange Earth – “Southern Beech”

February 1, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Orange EarthOrange Earth, which I wrote about in June last year, released a new EP a couple of months ago, “Southern Beech”. They continue experimenting in the outskirts of the psychadelia and the shoegaze regions and moves into jazz territories from time to time. Completely unpredictable from song to song and many times within the songs as well, which makes it even more interesting.

Another Nation’s National Anthem – “Conscious Castle”

December 8, 2010 at 4:51 pm

Another Nation's National AnthemAnother Nation’s National Anthem is back again with a new EP, “Conscious Castle”. Compared to the single “Save Them From Sorrow”, which they released in spring, it feels bigger, more dreamy and deeper, both when it comes to the lyrics as well as the music. And there is a theme to it all, which they describe like this:

Imagine going fifty years back in time; Sweden is the wondrous “folkhemmet” (the people’s home), a welfare state driven by bureaucrats redistributing the wealth so that all may enjoy equal opportunity and prosperity. Imagine then that this welfare state is eroded through the mechanism of globalization; imagine these bureaucrats seeing their means of power no longer working. Imagine the powerless bureaucrat.

Visit their site, their Myspace or Facebook pages for more. The EP is also available on Spotify.

Save Them From Sorrow

VadadiRobert Vadadi is the central character in this emo inspired band, and the debut album has just been released. Even if there are some models here, it feels like a very personal album, which Robert emphasizes with his special, almost whispering voice.

The music are sometimes a mellow pop/rock, with grand choruses and a driving beat, where the toms are worked hard. And in some songs it’s about more quiet thoughts with beautiful melodies. Mellow yes, but not as dark as thought from the start, rather a sense of hope beneath the surface, human and beautiful. Personal.

The album is available for purchase on the big net shops, and the best deal is with CDBaby, where it’s available for the neat price of 2.5 dollars. If you would like a CD, there is a special offer where Robert personally will deliver the record to your door for the price of 399 euros. (an offer you can’t refuse? :-))

Listen to and download two tracks from the album:
