I’m sitting here listening to nice ambient tones from Moist. To be exact, the EP “Alone”, a 7-track record with 4 original tracks and 3 interesting remixes from Addeboy vs Cliff, Håkan Lidbo and Red Snapper.

The Moist songs has a mellow, atmospheric feeling, where heavy bass beats step down and give depth to it all. At the same time this is good down-tempo pop with Maria Marcus’ somewhat distanced, souly voice in a perfect marriage with the ambience. Really good electronica which you can dive into and dream away with for a while.

Behind Moist you’ll find the songwriter and producer David Elfström Lilja, who, in various collaborations, creates this beautiful music under the name Moist. On Moist’s site you can listen more and also download the EP “I Am What I Am”. Recently a collaboration with Sophie Rimheden “Just Say You’re Sorry”, was released, which you can listen to and download.

Moist also has a Myspace page, where you can listen to the EP “Alone”. Here’s a video from the EP “I Am What I Am” and two tracks from “Alone”, which you can listen to and download:

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.
