Sóley: Ask The Deep Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland Sóley: Ask The Deep Almost four years ago Sóley (Stefánsdóttir) released her excellent alternative pop debut album, 'We Sink', and last year she gave us the inspired and special piano intermezzo, 'Krómantík'. Not long ago 'Ask The Deep' followed, an album wrestling demons and fair to call the real followup to the debut, in ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Prins Póló: París Norðursins Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland Prins Póló: París Norðursins Apart from a post back in 2011 we haven't written a lot about Svavar Pétur Eysteinsson, better known under the moniker Prins Póló. That's a shame really, but making up for lost time: Hey, you should check out Prins Póló from Iceland! Especially his latest album 'París Norðursins', a soundtrack ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Grumpynators: Wonderland Categories: Albums • Denmark • Metal Grumpynators: Wonderland The Danish quartet Grumpynators describe their music as motorbilly - and essentially serve up an answer to the ever so vital question: "What would it sound like if Motörhead played rockabilly?" Now, the countless subgenres of rockabilly; psychobilly, punkabilly, gothabilly just to name a few, always have the risk of ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Turboweekend: Share My Thunder Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Turboweekend: Share My Thunder It's been two years and a bit between Turboweekend's third and fourth full length. In between the four Danes have apparently been struggling with their identity as a band which turned the work with 'Share My Thunder' in to a process of finding a way back. Which I guess can ...

DíSA: Sculpture Categories: Albums • Electronica • Iceland DíSA: Sculpture Icelandic songstress Bryndís Jakobsdóttir has been with us for a while in different incarnations here, here and here, but right here she debuts as DíSA with the EP 'Sculpture'. I've shared a couple of tastes with you back in March, both making promises the EP easily keeps. It's dark, mid- ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Ribozyme: Grinding Tune Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Ribozyme: Grinding Tune Norway's Ribozyme have been around for some years but really peaked with 2012's 'Presenting The Problem'. That album was interesting in its effortless blend of metal, rock, industrial and a few dashes of electronica - and luckily Ribozyme don't try to reinvent themselves on 'Grinding Tune', instead opting for doing ...

Terrible Feelings: Tremors Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Terrible Feelings: Tremors I had mixed feelings about Terrible Feelings' (see what I did there?) debut album 'Shadows' from 2012. On one hand I loved the two tracks 'Intruders' and the angsty power pop song 'Days To Come' - on the other hand I thought the rest of the album was somewhat unspectacular ...

Omar: I Am Heavy Metal, Who Are You? Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Omar: I Am Heavy Metal, Who Are You? Back in 2007 Claus Wrang Michaelsen (featured here as part of the great Danish stoner rock outfit Hjortene) got his hands on an advance copy of Omar's debut album, 'I Am Heavy Metal, Who Are You?'. Then the Swedish quintet were shopping for labels to release the debut, but before ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Vök: Circles Categories: Albums • Electronica • Iceland Vök: Circles Shortly after forming in 2013 Vök won the annual band contest Músíktilraunir (the Icelandic equivalent of Battle of the Bands), and last year they released their debut EP, 'Tension', to quite the hype. Friday 'Circles' followed and I see no immediate reason why the new EP - co-produced by Biggi ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Spidergawd: Spidergawd II Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Spidergawd: Spidergawd II Last year Spidergawd released their eponymous debut to great critical acclaim in Norway and a Spellemann nomination for Rock Album of the Year. It's also an album that completely failed to make its way my way, so I'll have to take the press release's word for it. Luckily the quartet ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Virgin Suicide: Virgin Suicide Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Virgin Suicide: Virgin Suicide Recordings began in February 2014 with producer Lars Vognstrup (Lars & The Hands Of Light), but it has taken until this Monday for retro-rocking Virgin Suicide to get their debut full length out, in part because of a long distance collaboration with L.A.-based Sune Rose Wagner (The Raveonettes) who has ...

Marius Ziska: Home/Heim Categories: Albums • Alternative • Faroe Islands Marius Ziska: Home/Heim Although named after frontman and songwriter Hans Marius Weihe Ziska, Marius Ziska is a band. And a seven-piece at that (even though no band photo counting all seems to exist). 'Home/Heim' is their second full length and it is an album of one half alternative pop 'n post-rock and one ...
