Natubella

February 4, 2009 at 5:14 pm

NatubellaNatubella is the argentinian that changed hemispheres and settled down in Sweden. With her base in Sweden she’s is about to launch the new album “Little Devil. It will be released the 27th of February and a large part of the album is produced by Povel Ohlsson (Navid Modiri & Gudarna).

I would say that her style consists of one part of Madonna, one part of Goldfrapp, some part of Gwen Stefani, a lot of attitude, distorted guitars and electronica that stands out. Heavier dance beats are mixed with softer pop tracks. Below you can watch the video for TDG, from the coming album, and listen to and download two additional songs.

Interestingly “Athene’s Hymn” and “Evolve or Wait”, both have their origin in Natubella’s obvious fascination for computer games. “Athene’s Hymn” was created after a collaboration with the biggest profile in World of Warcraft and celebrate the character “Athene” from the game, while “Evolve or Wait” is a tribute to the game “Spore“.

I also just had to show you another version of the song “TDG”. The swedish theremin-player Pekkanini has made a cover of the song, which you can watch below!

If you’d like to know more about Natubella and taste more of the tracks from the album”Little Devil”, you should visit Natubella’s site. You’ll also find Natubella on Myspace.

Baron Bane

Baron BaneBaron Bane is a band that wants to challenge the concepts of what a band is and how you relate to a band’s music. Baron Bane is the fictitious front figure and also the leader of the band and the one that sets the direction of the music.

Maybe this is most obvious seen live, where the band, which consists both of musicians and graphic artists, try to give an audiovisual experience to the audience and move some boundaries. An example of this a while ago, was when they performed with prerecorded lead vocals, instead of the other way around!

In November they released an EP with the song “Love.Cure.All”, accompanied by four remixes of the song, made by Sophie Rimheden, Tony Senghore and others. Here you can listen to the suggestive titel track, electronica and pop with massive synths, and also to a remix by Sophie Rimheden.

If you visit Baron Bane’s site you can download the entire EP fro free, and you can also go to Baron Bane on Myspace to listen more.

Exhadley

ExhadleyExhadley is a duo consisting of Jörgen Andersson and Peter Fransson. I feel that words are not enough when I try to explain their music. Or maybe music experiences is a better phrase. With the help of electronics and synths and other instruments, they create pieces of musical art, which sometimes give me a psychadelia feeling, but is very varying. And that makes it even more interesting for me. It’s like going on a discovery adventure, and you’ll never know what’s around the corner.

Try for yourself here in a couple of tracks. You will find Exhadley on Myspace if you’d like to listen more. You can also find Jörgen Andersson under the name Nachdenken and Peter Fransson as Retep Folo, where you also will discover som interesting music.

I See

January 1, 2009 at 7:23 pm

I guess that New Years Day is the slowest day during the whole year for most people. At least it is for me, so I can’t really say that the new year begin with a flying start. But maybe, it’s just what we need; a day of  quiet afterthought, or maybe no thoughts at all, a few moments of eternal stillness before life starts pulsating again, faster and faster.

Maybe I See, (Niklas Björkman is his real name) can provide us with a soundtrack for today. Music that explores ambiences of beauty and darkness. Still but also with pulse. Something that creates images in my mind and with a touch of eastern mystique.
