Constables: Complex Sex Categories: Albums • Finland • Rock Constables: Complex Sex It's been almost two years since Constables were featured first on this blog with their second EP, 'Bedroom Culture'. Then I said of the Finnish quartet that their Strokes-Franz Ferdinand-Interpol indie wasn't mindblowingly original as such, yet it was effective and catchy. It's an opinion I can only repeat of ...

Nøsted released two EPs titled 'Stop Making Sense And Start Making Success Vol. 1' and 2. I missed the second one in the tidal wave of music hitting these shores, but I'll get a second chance with that come October when ... (Click To Continue Reading)

The eponymous debut is a personal account of the drunken consequences of fame as drummer with Danish pop-rock outfit A Friend In London and the struggle to kick the booze and find his pre-fame ...

Kontinuum: Kyrr Categories: Albums • Iceland • Metal Kontinuum: Kyrr At first I was kind of bummed out when I got an e-mail from Kontinuum's record label guy with a download link and the message "the album is very different from the first one." In my opinion Kontinuum's debut album, 'Earth Blood Magic', was one of the best albums of ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Dunderbeist: Hyklere Categories: Albums • Metal • Norway Dunderbeist: Hyklere I have to admit I was kind of skeptical after first listening to Dunderbeist's latest effort, 'Hyklere' (Norwegian for “hypocrites”). I loved their two previous albums, 'Black Arts & Crooked Tails' and 'Songs Of The Buried', but somehow this album didn't appeal to me as immediately. It turns out it's ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Starving For My Gravy: Vol. 1 Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Starving For My Gravy: Vol. 1 These guys first appeared on this blog back in 2008 as lauded nordicana singer/songwriter Tommy Tokyo's backing band. Last time we heard from them (here anyway) was Tokyo's third album, 'Go Time, Showtime & Absolute War' (2010), after which they were relieved from duty, but now the band slash art ...

Negash Ali: The Collage Categories: Albums • Denmark • Urban Negash Ali: The Collage Following up on 2014s most excellent 'The African Dream', Negash Ali returned a bit earlier this year with the EP 'The Collage', also marking Ali’s debut on production in collaboration with Playminds/Jacob Vidkjær. On 'The Collage' the Danish/Eritrean rapper goes soft on us with three soulful R&B ballads, and even ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Black Lizard: Solarize Categories: Albums • Finland • Rock Black Lizard: Solarize Two years on from their great eponymous debut album Black Lizard return with another sweet, self-produced offering of psyched out rock as it was first done some fifty years ago. This time around horns, synths and other bits have been added to the Finnish quartet's sound palette, but these have ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Jonathan Johansson: Lebensraum Categories: Albums • Pop • Sweden Jonathan Johansson: Lebensraum It's not usual that pop deals with themes heavier than "why did he/she leave me and will life ever be good again" or "why don't we just get piss drunk and party like it's [insert year]". With Jonathan Johansson it's different, immediately suggested by the title of his new album ... (Click To Continue Reading)
HULDA: HULDAsound Categories: Albums • Electronica • Faroe Islands HULDA: HULDAsound Back in October I featured a couple of singles by Faroese electropopster HULDA and early March this debut album followed. Comprising eight songs - produced by ORKA main man Jens L. Thomsen and guested by several of her compatriots, e.g. Petur Pólson and Guðrið Hansdóttir of BYRTA fame with whom ...

Halshug: Blodets Bånd Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Halshug: Blodets Bånd Danish trio Halshug ("decapitation") has two speeds: Fast and very fast. This means that their debut, 'Blodets Bånd', isn't the most varied album you can imagine. With eight songs clocking in at just at little more than 17 minutes in total it isn't very long either. It is, however, punk ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Then Comes Silence: Nyctophilian Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Then Comes Silence: Nyctophilian I was quite smitten by Then Comes Silence's first album, 'Then Comes Silence', and I liked their second effort, 'II', even better. After listening to 'Nyctophilian' (kudos for thinking outside the box regarding the album title) I have to say that if the Swedes don't get a major breakthrough with ... (Click To Continue Reading)
