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)

Sameblod: Flourish Categories: Pop • Sweden • Tracks Sameblod: Flourish We first featured Swedish duo Sameblod aka Frederick Rundqvist and Mikael Mattisson back in 2011 and about a month ago their latest single, 'Flourish', landed. Had I gotten around to it then it would no doubt have brightened my winter, but now it does the same to my Spring. It's ... (Click To Continue Reading)
DíSA: Cure Categories: Electronica • Iceland • Videos DíSA: Cure First she was Dísa. Then Disa (featured as such here and here). But now it seems that Bryndís Jakobsdóttir's artist alter ego is to be spelled DíSA. Which is fine by me, as long we can agree that it doesn't change again anytime soon. Anyway, the Icelandic singer has a ... (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.
