Them Bird Things: The Bride Who Came To Yellow Sky Categories: Albums • Finland • Rock Them Bird Things: The Bride Who Came To Yellow Sky Four albums in Them Bird Things show no signs of slowing down (or speeding up for that matter), still adding layers to their output which began with the 1960s-tinged debut 'Fly, Them Bird Things, Fly!' (2009), went dusty americana on the followup, 'Wildlike Wonder' (2010), and proved them ultimately unique ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Bite The Bullet: Wheels Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Bite The Bullet: Wheels It's all about now, Bite The Bullet's second album 'Wheels' which is released today. Now as in right now, right here. Where the Danish trio are in life musically and personally at this point in time. A theme taken to its fullest extent in the creation of the new album, ...

Ólafur Arnalds: Broadchurch Categories: Albums • Electronica • Iceland Ólafur Arnalds: Broadchurch The very first time I heard Ólafur Arnalds I was on my couch surfing aimlessly around MySpace (remember that place?) and a few months later I was (again) blown away by him at his Iceland Airwaves show. This was back in 2008 and since then I've featured him way too ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Simen Mitlid: While We Wait Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Simen Mitlid: While We Wait I featured Norwegian singer/songwriter Simen Mitlid (who's slowly, but steadily turning in to a nordicana favourite of mine) a couple of times last year, first with a double EP and video post which you liked enough to make number one on this list, and second with 'Thoughts' which was the ...

Stupendous Band: Whatever You Do Categories: Albums • Denmark • Electronica Stupendous Band: Whatever You Do Late last month Johan Feierskov debuted as Stupendous Band with this four track EP titled 'Whatever You Do'. Recorded in various bedrooms (his words, your mind in the gutter) he combines samples, synths and - amidst the playful crackling - an obvious talent for pop to a really great first ...

Muted: Muted World Categories: Albums • Electronica • Iceland Muted: Muted World This debut by Muted aka Bjarni Rafn Kjartansson was recorded back in 2011, but other projects delayed the release. No harm in that, though, as his generally chilled out electronica easily stands the test of time passed and most likely the time that will come. It's instrumental with a few ...

Amason: Sky City Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Amason: Sky City I first heard Amason at SPOT Festival last year where their concert turned out one of the better experiences that weekend. Tomorrow the Swedes release their highly anticipated debut album, 'Sky City', and as the SPOT show it doesn't disappoint. Back then I placed Gustav Ejstes (Dungen), Nils Törnqvist, Petter ...

The 20 Best Albums of 2014 Categories: Albums • Denmark • Faroe Islands • Features • Finland • Iceland • Norway • Sweden The 20 Best Albums of 2014 The time has come for the culmination on this week's ALL SCANDINAVIAN year-end retrospect: The 20 Best Albums of 2014 - as we heard it. As usual we're painfully aware of the many albums that perhaps could've made the list had we received them and had we had all the ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Singapore Sling: The Tower of Foroncity Categories: Albums • Iceland • Rock Singapore Sling: The Tower of Foroncity Three years on from the latest album, 'Never Forever', Singapore Sling aka Henrik Björnsson and friends released the eighth full length since their beginning in 2000 about a month ago. As I really like what Björnsson's fellow Icelanders in Dead Skeletons do (Björnsson is in fact also a member of ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Spiralism: Chakras Categories: Albums • Finland • Metal Spiralism: Chakras Last week I shared the first single off psychedelic metal band Spiralism's debut album, 'Chakras', saying that 'Weighing Of The Heart' was worth checking out if you are into songs where you can listen to the first two or three minutes and still have no idea where it is going. ...

Siberian: Modern Age Mausoleum Categories: Albums • Metal • Sweden Siberian: Modern Age Mausoleum Earlier this year I claimed that if the first track of Siberian’s first full length album was anything to judge by we could be in for quite a treat. Guess what: The single 'Paragon' was something to judge by (it’s not even the best track on the album) and we ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Herr Nilsson: Songs In Your Basement Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Herr Nilsson: Songs In Your Basement Two and half years ago I featured Norwegian eight-piece Herr Nilsson and their, at the time, two fresh singles released as buildup to their fourth, at the time, untitled album. A video for 'Figures & Charts' was missed (perhaps along with more?) through 2013 but included in this retrospect sorry-piece, ... (Click To Continue Reading)

Firstly, Bloodbath released their new album, 'Grand Morbid Funeral'. Secondly, same Bloodbath announced that they are going to play at next year's metal festival Copenhell. If the first says something about the latter we can ... (Click To Continue Reading)
