Rebecca & Fiona – “Bullets”

By Roni Brunn | January 24, 2011 | Music downloads, News


I’m into the new track from Rebecca & Fiona, whose “Luminary Ones” took over my favorite Swedish radio stream this fall/winter.  “Bullets” is more of the same catchy, dreamy Euro synth pop – not a big departure from their first single, but I don’t care.  Fun fun.

Syket – “Let It Heal”

By Roni Brunn | November 12, 2010 | Music downloads, News

So into this new Syket song.  It’s 90s shoegaze from an airtight time capsule.  Syket’s from northern Sweden but could easily pass for a Manchester band.  “Let It Heal” is the first single from their new EP Fish Band which features a remix mastered by Studio‘s Dan Lissvik.

Nina Kinert – “Play the World”

By Roni Brunn | October 8, 2010 | Music downloads, News

Want a new song from an earthier, darker Lykke Li?  I’m using “earthy” to mean that Nina sings with a lower register, a warmer tone, and without the Lolita affectation.  The production of “Play the World” easily falls into the Youth Novels milieu but doesn’t feel dated, perhaps because it keeps the percussion of the former but swirls around more haunting vocals around it.

Little Majorette – “Bite the Bullet,” “London”

By Roni Brunn | September 20, 2010 | Music downloads, News


London/Stockholm trio Little Majorette started out as pro songwriters but have recently ventured to the front of the house.  “Bit the Bullet” is their cute first single.  It’s got some ska infusion but I like it anyway.

Their second single “London” mixes a bit of trip hopped mod accompaniment with minimal arrangements, with a catchy, hummable melody you’d expect from Stockholm.

Little Majorette put out an EP this spring and are now working on a debut album.

Here’s a track for the stupid fun I’m planning for the weekend.  Hope you have a similar agenda!

St. John’s Dance is like a Swedish hip hop supergroup consisting of Stor, Adam Tensta, Eboi & Dida.  Check it out if you’re into Madskillz and Maskinen.

ceo – “Come With Me”

By Roni Brunn | June 7, 2010 | Music downloads, News

ceo is the new solo project from The Tough Alliance’s Eric Berglund.  “Come With Me” is the first single from the forthcoming ceo album, White Magic, which comes out late June on Modular.  Sounds less aggressive than TTA but just as catchy.

Bye Bye Bicycle – “Northpole”

By Roni Brunn | June 1, 2010 | Music downloads, News

I love Brit pop from Sweden.  Bye Bye Bicycle’s “Northpole” sounds somewhere between The Smiths and New Order – shit, I bet that would have been the most clichéd way to describe bands around that time had there been blogging then.  “Northpole” resides in the upbeat, catchy area of that overlap.  This single comes from their debut album Compass, out on Bonjour Recordings.

Familjen – Viggo

By Roni Brunn | May 24, 2010 | Music downloads, News


Familjen is one of the artists – Swedish, of course – that I kind of cover on this blog.  I’m into the music and relate to the one bro studio set up.  I’ve been proud when the album artwork for Mänskligheten started making the rounds in design/art/Kanye blogs in the last few days but sad to see it paired without enthusiasm for the tunes.  Not cool.  Mänskligheten is a legit album.
