Sólstafir: Làgnætti Categories: Iceland • Rock • Videos Sólstafir: Làgnætti With 'Otta', their fifth album, Sólstafir have made one of the most remarkable albums of 2014. It seems only fitting then that the first video from the album doesn’t quite look like anything you are used to. The video shows the band driving around in raw Icelandic nature in an ...

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 ...

Krachmacher: Flamingo Categories: Norway • Rock • Videos Krachmacher: Flamingo They say they are an "avant-kraut-art-rock experiment gone pop" and that could be as perfect a description as any, I guess. But whatever you do decide to call Krachmacher you have to remember to include "great" and "haunting", because that is what Linn Frøkedal (The Megaphonic Thrift), Eva Pfitzenmaier (By ...

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)
 
Hit The Hay: Never Wanted Out Categories: Denmark • Rock • Tracks • Videos Hit The Hay: Never Wanted Out Danish outfit Hit The Hay were responsible for one of my favorite tracks of 2013 with their most excellent americana poprocker ‘Long Way Home’. Since then they’ve made more music and I’ve been absolutely quiet about it. No good reason. Just quiet. Which is regrettable because what they’ve done is ... (Click To Continue Reading)

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.

RA: These Days/Prism Categories: Rock • Sweden • Tracks • Videos RA: These Days/Prism A year ago I was under the impression that Malmö post-punk outfit RA would follow up on their debut EP, ‘Bloodline’, “soon”. Now, I might’ve missed something - and the concept of soon is admittedly diffuse - but it does seem a stretch to define a year as soon. Anyway, ... (Click To Continue Reading)
