Steso: Kav Categories: Alternative • Faroe Islands • Tracks Steso: Kav Hergeir Staksberg is back under his moniker Steso, which basically functions as a musical collective sporting on/off appearances by a number of Faroese musicians. The new single is titled 'Kav' and stands as one of the best Steso songs so far in it's soothingly catchy alternative pop-ness. Excellent... (Click To Continue Reading)

Looking forward to more... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Firewoodisland: Simon Categories: Alternative • Norway • Videos Firewoodisland: Simon In September I featured the debut EP, 'ILD', by Cardiff based Norwegian Stian Vedøy and his Welsh partners in Firewoodisland. It's an EP sporting five indiefolk songs along the same lines of Bon Iver, Mumford & Sons and fellow Scandinavians Of Monsters And Men, and now there's a neat DIY ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Sóley: Krómantík Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland Sóley: Krómantík Three years ago Sóley Stefánsdóttir released her excellent alternative pop debut album, 'We Sink', under the moniker Sóley and according to plan a second will follow next year. As an overture to that - although we are probably talking two quite different expressions - she released the album she's wanted ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
DF5K: Kioto Categories: Alternative • Finland • Tracks • Videos DF5K: Kioto Hailing from Oulu DF5K is another of those bands that won't tell us much about themselves (other than that they apparently like french fries), but as far as I can gather they got together back in 2012 and the result so far is three tracks, a remix and most recently ...

Dánjal: Raindrops Categories: Alternative • Faroe Islands • Videos Dánjal: Raindrops A couple of weeks ago Dánjal released his third album, ’Time’, which was preceded by this single and video. ‘Raindrops’ is as pop as I can remember hearing the Faroese singer, while still rich on his trademark theatrics. Also here are ‘Beth’ and ‘Never Again’, first released as part of ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Queenfish & Other Tales: Oh! How Stupid Categories: Alternative • Sweden • Videos Queenfish & Other Tales: Oh! How Stupid Following up her lauded debut album, ‘Landing’, from last year, the Swedish singer and multi-instrumentalist Ewa Wikström has released a new single under her moniker Queenfish & Other Tales.

ORKA: Leipzig Categories: Albums • Alternative • Faroe Islands ORKA: Leipzig That Faroese collective ORKA fronted by Jens L. Thomsen is something entirely unique is no secret. They have proven it with homemade instruments, excellent live shows and now four albums of equal parts alternative rock and industrial electronica. The latest, ‘Leipzig’, is both their most accessible (’Leipzig VII - Sing’ ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Sólstafir: Ótta Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland • Metal Sólstafir: Ótta It has always been a bit of a stretch to call Sólstafir metal. On ‘Ótta’ the term really doesn’t make sense anymore, but I got no better genre that really covers it. The Icelandic four-piece just makes music. Haunting, beautiful, rich, atmospheric music that sounds like nothing else. ‘Ótta’ may ... (Click To Continue Reading)
 
Brother North: Brother North Categories: Albums • Alternative • Iceland • Sweden Brother North: Brother North At just 22 Swedish/Icelandic duo Brother North - Freyr Flodgren and Lucas Enquist - have already been making music together for a decade, the culmination so far being the release of their debut album this year.
