Track of the week. It’s a bit strange, but this has been a very strange week anyway so this fits well. It’s very cute Danish indie that keeps you hooked right to the end. Check out here.

One of the quirkier bands to come out of Sweden this year, this new clip by Caligola is drenched in 90’s funk.

Im really expecting this track by Josh Kumra to blow up next year, and this live version filmed at the Shepherds Bush Empire down the road from me is proof.

First Listen: Dancing Heals ‘Charlie Brown’

Some chilled soft shoegaze from one of my favourite new Australian bands- Dancing Heals.

New Music: Sam Callahan

Fresh new bubblegum pop from a Sylvia Young School alumni. Aside from the fact that I can see a whole load of teenage girls falling for this act, there is potential in there. Check out here.

Swedish hip hop

Do I understand it? No. Does that take away from it’s fierceness? No. This is Lilla Namo.

First Watch: Mr Bubblehead ‘Burgers N Fries’

mr bubblehead

Ah the Swedes… I don’t know what else to say. I would usually run away from tracks with titles like these but this is actually a pretty good bit of disco by Mr Bubblehead, and the video’s cool! The EP is out now.
