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.

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)

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)
Ring Them Bells: No One’s Dead / We’re Just Dressed in Black Categories: Albums • Denmark • Rock Ring Them Bells: No One’s Dead / We’re Just Dressed in Black Following up on their 2013 debut Ring Them Bells released this second album earlier this week.

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)

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)
