New Music: Shannon Labrie

This sound reminds me a lot of Jason Mraz. It’s lovely to listen to. Perfect for a Sunday morning. Check out here.


Before heading out this evening…

Listen to some crazy ass Swedish bass-filled dance. Good, right?

New Music: IT BOYS!

This video has gone straight to rotation on Chart Show TV and Kerrang! TV in the UK – and as of last week they have also officially been taken on by the same live agency as One Direction and McFly. So you’ll probably see a whole load of these guys very soon near you. Check out here.

Fancy some Swedish stadium rock? Probably not. But give this a go anyway… Please?

This is Swedish stadium rock. It could have passed as cheesy and corny but actually it’s pretty good. I think, anyway. Check out here.

Kick to the weekend with Terranova

This starts really slow and hazy, then picks up and makes you look forward to more at the end. Kind of like how this week’s been. Happy Friday!

New Music: Sol

It’s a good week for new Swedish music. This is Sol. I don’t really understand what he’s singing about, but it’s really nice to listen to. So here it is. Check out here.

New Music: Niklas von Arnold

Songs like this are the reason I sit for hours every week going through music to put up on here. This song got me a bit teary. Which is something rare. Amazing Swedish soul. Check out here.

Kittens make for good beats

I was meaning to show this video last week but I didn’t get the chance to. Cute Swedish beats matched to a very, very fluffy kitty.

New Music: Kitty Clementine

There’s a certain whiff of Amy Winehouse in this, which makes it very enjoyable. Check out here.

Why isn’t Hervé big yet?

Hervé’s been around for what seems like ages now, and his tunes have been world class right from the start. I don’t understand why he isn’t a household name yet. Anyway, enjoy this.

Hoodlums & CocknBullKid make a song together

And it’s sort of amazing. I wish the sound quality was better. Hoodlums are a new band already championed by the likes of Q Magazine and BBC 6Music due to their gloriously unpredictable live shows.

New Music: Discopolis

Evocative of the finest moments of Friendly Fires’ output, fused with the sonic majesty of M83 and perhaps even reminiscent of early Orbital. Check out here.

New Music: Seye

I LOVE this hard. Seye made a name for himself playing guitar for big name pop artists such as Paloma Faith, The Noisettes and Ellie Goulding. Now he’s going it alone and ‘White Noise’ is the first offering. Check out here.
