Hundmänniska – “Res dig upp”

October 17, 2016 at 5:13 pm


Hundmänniska is Lovisa Thurfjell’s new solo project. She comes from punk outfit Tiger Bell where she played the guitar and handled the lead vocals. She says that she thinks these new songs contain more pop compared to what she’s done before, but to me it’s still very much about rock when I listen to the first single “Res dig upp”. And it’s an unmasked, naked rock that feels in the gut as she squeezes out the last drops of sweat in the driving, energetic chorus. It’s music that gives me an energy kick, that kicks me in the butt and leaves a smile on my face at the same time. The song is the first one from her upcoming EP, and with this marvellous start I hope she don’t wait too long with more tracks.

Danmarck – “Mayfire”

September 8, 2016 at 6:04 pm


Rickard Ahlgren and his Danmarck is back again with a new track. It’s called “Mayfire” a song he says was inspired by “‘month of may’-arcade fire & horror”. Here he’s certainly left the garage and sounds larger than ever with ominous, alarming guitars and chanting hardcore vocals.

Tåget till Wroclaw

Here’s Tåget till Wroclaw, a four member strong band hailing from Fagersta, who recently released the new single “Blunda inte mer”. They have achieved a quite sweet basic rock sound with driving toms and echoing guitars where they with clenched fists tell us how they look at what’s happening in the world. Earlier the band has released the EP “Vakna nätter & trötta dagar” 2014 and after that a couple of singles, which you can listen to on Spotify and other platforms.

Rooni – “Who You Are”

August 26, 2016 at 4:11 pm


After a long summer break I thought I should kickstart my season with the new single from the powerpop trio Rooni, “Who You are”. They surprise me with a more spacious and more polished sound than before, where glittering acoustic guitars set the mood in the song. Sometimes Tom Petty feels close, but here are also strokes of the sixties and indiepop from the nineties. They say that half the budget was spent on the recording and the other half on pancakes with strawberry jam, so the music video had to be produced with the little resources that remained. The single is the first one in a series of three, to be released this Autumn.

Ismael – “Lukas”

June 30, 2016 at 3:52 pm


The trio Ismael has recently released the song “Lukas” together with a video, a song they describe as a fiery pride pop song about the possibility to find a new  way out together with someone else. The track is taken from their album “Som om jag vaknar nu”, released in the beginning of this year.

That album is possibly the best I’ve heard so far with the band, so I thought I should let you taste some more of it with another song here below. They command the space between postpunk-vibing Swedish rock from the 80’s and grand-sounding indiepop with soaring guitar harmonies, a space they fill with earnestness and blackness in lyrics where they find their own angles on the issues we wrestle with today about our humanity.
