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 ...

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'.

Postiljonen: Go! Categories: Alternative • Norway • Sweden • Tracks Postiljonen: Go! In 2013 Swedish/Norwegian trio Postiljonen gave us the finest 36 minutes of music that year with their impressive synthpop debut, 'Skyer'.

Steso: Mjørkabarn Categories: Alternative • Faroe Islands • Tracks Steso: Mjørkabarn It has been a while since we last heard from Steso aka Hergeir Staksberg and various friends, but Wednesday his new single, 'Mjørkabarn' (which more or less directly translates to "fog child"), landed in the inbox.

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)

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)
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)
