RA: These Days/Prism Categories: Rock • Sweden • Tracks • Videos RA: These Days/Prism A year ago I was under the impression that Malmö post-punk outfit RA would follow up on their debut EP, ‘Bloodline’, “soon”. Now, I might’ve missed something - and the concept of soon is admittedly diffuse - but it does seem a stretch to define a year as soon. Anyway, ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Sólstafir: Ótta Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland • Metal Sólstafir: Ótta It has always been a bit of a stretch to call Sólstafir metal. On ‘Ótta’ the term really doesn’t make sense anymore, but I got no better genre that really covers it. The Icelandic four-piece just makes music. Haunting, beautiful, rich, atmospheric music that sounds like nothing else. ‘Ótta’ may ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Nancy: Seas Surrounding Categories: Albums • Alternative • Finland Nancy: Seas Surrounding Pretty much exactly a year on from their debut, ‘IDDQD’, Finnish quartet Nancy return with a full length album departing a bit from their first in style. The core is still grandiose rock, but this time around they’ve intensified the use of electronics and more than once tweaked the knobs ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Men Of Polaroids: Darkness Categories: Denmark • Rock • Videos Men Of Polaroids: Darkness The brand new Danish duo Men Of Polaroids aka Mathias Elrød Madsen and Djarn Kargin claim to be an indierock outfit in their bio, yet their first official single, 'Darkness' (out Monday), is a melancholic drop of orchestral folk. This might be a bit confusing, but it is in no ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
CMBSTN: C’mon Get Up (Happiness) Categories: Rock • Sweden • Tracks • Videos CMBSTN: C’mon Get Up (Happiness) Hailing from Stockholm this quartet have released three tracks so far this year, the latest melancholic call to arms, ‘C’mon Get Up (Happiness)’, about a month ago, which along with the two previous, ‘My Friend’ and ‘One Of Us’, show CMBSTN (Combustion) move from the thumping indierock that was their ...

Musique Le Pop: l’été EP Categories: Albums • Electronica • Norway Musique Le Pop: l’été EP Last year Musique Le Pop had a bit of a blogosphere hit with their great single ’Turn To Sand’, and a couple of months ago the Norwegian electropop trio followed up with their debut EP, ‘l’été EP’ (“summer” in French). It’s a perfectly titled release and will extend the feeling ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Tomas Barfod: Love Me Categories: Albums • Denmark • Electronica Tomas Barfod: Love Me Twenty-some years ago I went to boarding school with Tomas Barfod. Then a very accomplished (jazz) drummer he surprised most - at least most of us, his fellow students - when suddenly charting as half of electropop duo Filur (his later work with WhoMadeWho making a bit more immediate sense), ...
