Sóley: Don’t Ever Listen Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland Sóley: Don't Ever Listen This summer Sóley released her second full length album, 'Ask The Deep', as a followup to her 2011 debut, 'We Sink', and last year's somewhat surprising EP 'Krómantík', which was more classical than her trademark alternative pop and apparently the first in a trilogy of EPs where focus is on ...

Imperial State Electric: Honk Machine Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Imperial State Electric: Honk Machine Nicke Andersson is Sweden's answer to Jack White: Ridiculously productive, a member of lots and lots of bands - and extremely gifted.

Homesick Hank: Beautiful Life Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Homesick Hank: Beautiful Life It's been six years since Homesick Hank's last album, 'Ghosts' (a bit of praise here), but last week the Danish nordicana trio returned with their fourth full length since forming in 2002, 'Beautiful Life'. Their fairly long absence is explained with midlife crisis (plural apparently), depression, drink and divorce which ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Jonas Carping: Cocktails & Gasoline Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Jonas Carping: Cocktails & Gasoline About a month ago I shared the two singles and one b-side released to build attention around Jonas Carping's second full length in his own name, 'Cocktails & Gasoline', saying then that the three made it sound like a pretty great album could be in the wait. There was. Through ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Have You Ever Seen Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS?: Teenage Sweetheart Categories: Albums • Finland • Rock Have You Ever Seen Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS?: Teenage Sweetheart Back in August we shared Have You Ever Seen Jane Fonda Aerobic VHS?'s single 'Family Man', saying it had us thinking of the Icelandic neon-and-retro-fun outfit FM Belfast in a couple of ways. A month and a bit ago 'Teenage Sweetheart' followed and there's nothing about the Finns' debut album ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Blaue Blume: Syzygy Categories: Albums • Alternative • Denmark Blaue Blume: Syzygy Last year Blaue Blume impressed with their debut EP, 'Beau & Lorette', and Friday they finally followed up with their first full length, 'Syzygy'.

Thundermother: Road Fever Categories: Albums • Rock • Sweden Thundermother: Road Fever The all female rock'n'roll band Thundermother from Sweden sounds like someone who just stumbled out of a sleazy club on Sunset Strip in L.A. after getting into a fistfight with Mötley Crüe for stealing a riff from AC/DC and drinking the last of Lemmy from Motörhead's Jack Daniel's. In other ... (Click To Continue Reading)
Jaga Jazzist: Starfire Categories: Albums • Alternative • Norway Jaga Jazzist: Starfire It's been five years since we last heard from Norwegian legends Jaga Jazzist, but earlier this year their latest album, 'Starfire', dropped.

Jón Ólafsson & Futuregrapher: Eitt Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland Jón Ólafsson & Futuregrapher: Eitt The album cover is water and it's (obviously) not a coincidence. Both as I assume cover designer Sig Vicious knows what he's doing and as the music of Jón Ólafsson and Futuregrapher aka Árni Grétar on their first joint effort, 'Eitt', is like water on a clear morning. Quietly flowing, ... (Click To Continue Reading)
