Crying Day Care Choir – “Wedding Song”

It’s hard to find more summer feelings than in Crying Day Care Choir’s sunny folkpop-vibing song “Wedding Song”. The pair Jack and Sara Elz sang the words to each other when they married five years ago, but thought it was a good time now to record the song together with the band mate Bill Nystedt and release it as a single.

Crying Day Care Choir – “Wonderlust” EP

You can’t get anything but happy when you listen to Crying Day Care Choir. Their new EP “Wonderlust” is no exception to that rule. There are no minor scales clouding the blue sky as far as we can see, and we don’t worry about anything as we join the band in a sing-a-long to strong, bright melodies and a flower-dressed, acoustic folkpop, heartened by their warm smiles. Here’s a taste in the shape of the single with the same name, an obvious, and just as captivating, follow-up to last year’s “Up & Away“:

Mount David – “Do Almost Anything”

If Mount David’s first single came with a breath of Van Morrison, the second single, “Do Most Anything” have a fragrance of Simon & Garfunkel and CSN&Y. Not bad at all.

Manifestet – “Hur det blev som det blev”

We’ve met Jonas Carping before as a solo artist and in The Glade. Now he’s created a new project, “Manifestet”, together with Martin Karlsson, and released the debut single. It’s called “Hur det blev som det blev”, and brings a strong vibe of classic Swedish folk-progressive music, but which comes out like a battle song for our time.

Crying Day Care Choir – “Leave the Kingdom” – album

Crying Day Care Choir recently released their debut album “Leave the Kingdom”. So bring a blanket and settle down on the green grass under the blue summer sky and the band will treat you with warmth, flowers, peace signs, smiles, sing-a-long and fellowship. Here’s the first single and video from the album, “Up & Away”:

Joe Fiddle – “Where I’ll Spend My Years”

Joe Fiddle, or Joe Nyström which is his real name, comes from Älvsbyn in the north of Sweden. For some time he’s made a living as a street musician in both Dubrovnik’s old city and at the pier in Santa Monica, but is now back in Sweden and Umeå. In the Autumn he’ll release his first record “Where I’ll Spend My Years”, and serves us a taste here with this single, “Where I’ll Spend My Years”, a song that has vibes of Bob Dylan and Tallest Man On Earth.

Chrismas special 2013

True to my traditions I’ve collected some new Christmas songs this year also, which I’m going to present here today.

Crying Day Care Choir

Our friends in Crying Day Care Choir have recorded a Christmas EP with four tracks, called “Christmas Day Care Choir”. What’s extra nice about this is that they are donating all income from the album to Musikhjälpen during this week, i.e. until December 15th. Musikhjälpen is a project run by the public TV and Radio in Sweden each year, collecting money for people in need. This year it’s about women’s rights to survive pregnancies. If you’d like to help the band to help, you can just click download in the player below.

YAST presented their album debut earlier this year and walks out of it with this fine Christmas song, “If Santa Ain’t Real”, accompanied by Alice Boman on backing vocals.

Magnus Bergman has worked hard with releasing singles this year, and it’s only logical that he would make a Christmas single as well. It’s called “Decembernatt” and is a remake of his own song, this time in a duet version together with Kim Vestin.

And it’s great that Brainpool make a comeback after almost ten years of silence, and they do that with this Christmas single “The Last Christmas”:

Tenonsaw, who released the album “Avenging Angels” during the Autumn, also wanted to contribute to the Christmas ambience. Of course they also want to experiment, and they do this by combining Mariah Careys “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and U2:s “All I Want Is You” into this song:

Next up is some lovely classical sounding Christmas jazz from Gunhild Carling, here with her new single “Winter’s Day”:

I’m finishing with celtic punk rockers Finnegan’s Hell, who serve us a Christmas song in the spirit of social realism, as they write, “Drunken Christmas (An Irish Christmas Song)”:

I hope you can find your Christmas spirit in this post; there are quite different versions to choose from here above. Merry Christmas to you, and thank you for coming here reading my posts and most of all for listening to the music.

Crying Day Care Choir – two birthdays

October 21, 2013 at 5:10 pm

About nine months ago Crying Day Care Choir sowed the seeds to two beautiful creations, where one of them saw the daylight yesterday and the other one shows itself to us today. The firstborn is the band members Jack and Sara’s child and the sibling from today is the new song “Folklore”. I congratulate them to these births, and it seems like we can expect more siblings in Spring in the shape of a number of new songs on their upcoming debut album:

The song follows the tradition of folk lore and tells tales about the married couple Jack and Sara’s many adventures around the world, accompanied by brother Bill’s bombastic beats. The song is a story told by the band while it is also the start of their next adventure with releasing a full length album for you sometime in Spring next year.
