This Is Head: This Is Head Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden This Is Head: This Is Head It's no secret that This Is Head made us big fans with the greatest of ease when they released their most excellent debut ‘0001’ in 2010. The followup, 'The Album ID' (2013), was just as great - perhaps even better - and really added to our expectations to what might ... (Click To Continue Reading)
F. Valentin: Amager Strand Categories: Albums • Denmark • Electronica F. Valentin: Amager Strand There are two words we have used more often than any others when talking about our favorite Frederik Valentin (Complicated Universal Cum, Rock Hard Power Spray, Vomit Supreme and many more), and that's "uncompromising" and "awesome". They are about to be repeated as the Dane's new album - and first ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Man The Machetes: Av Nag Categories: Albums • Norway • Rock Man The Machetes: Av Nag One of the best punk albums to come out of Norway in 2013 (and the supply was almost endless) was Man The Machetes' debut album 'Idiokrati'. So, that should be a tough act to follow, right? Not really. Man The Machetes eats "the difficult second album" clichés for breakfast with ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Jennie Abrahamson: Gemini Gemini Categories: Albums • Alternative • Sweden Jennie Abrahamson: Gemini Gemini On her fourth album - the first UK release - Swedish singer/songwriter Jennie Abrahamson filter Kate Bush and the 80s through compatriots like Robyn, The Knife and Lykke Li to a 10 song collection of alternative (synth-)pop that aim to move hearts and, every once in a while, feet. It's ... (Click To Continue Reading)
23:23: Drifter Categories: Albums • Alternative • Finland 23:23: Drifter This post takes its title from an album originally released last year. There's an explanation for that (other than me forgetting to tell you about it last year), because a little while back it was re-released as part of an album trilogy on Soliti Music. Behind the moniker 23:23 hides ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Black Book Lodge: Entering Another Measure Categories: Albums • Denmark • Metal Black Book Lodge: Entering Another Measure Danish trio Black Book Lodge immediately knocked my socks off with their atmospheric stoner metal on the debut, 'Tûndra'. Their sophomore effort, 'Entering Another Measure', doesn't quite do that. Not that it is a bad album. Far from it. It's just more one of those albums that slowly grows on ...

Broen: Yoga Categories: Albums • Alternative • Norway Broen: Yoga Feminism, war protest and a strong desire to piss on the Greek extreme right party, Golden Dawn, mix with 80s pop, shoegaze, afrobeat, electronica, hip hop and a tuba in Broen's universe, and it is exactly as curious and challenging as it sounds. The Norwegian quintet manage, however, to make ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Jaakko Eino Kalevi: Jaakko Eino Kalevi Categories: Albums • Alternative • Finland Jaakko Eino Kalevi: Jaakko Eino Kalevi I saw this former Helsinki tram-driver by chance at last year's SPOT Festival and was immediately drawn in to his gripping universe of psychedelic synthpop made famous on the interweb by his great 2013 EP 'Dreamzone'. Since then Jaakko Eino Kalevi has been busy touring and writing new music, the ... (Click To Continue Reading)
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 ...
