I actually really like this- it sounds very different to a lot of the music I get sent, which makes it refreshing and new. And on top of that, it’s a very slick production. That’s because Johan Reinhold is a Swedish Grammy nominated indie electro-pop singer/songwriter who has just released this song, “Shoot Me Down” which was created by some of Sweden’s most prominent producers and engineers like Astma & Rocwell and the Lasse Mortén (who produced Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn & John, and Primal Scream). Check out here.
Right then, this is properly amazing, beautiful stuff. The lyrics from David Bowie’s ‘Space Oddity‘ have been turned into a gorgeous children’s book, illustrated by Canadian graphic designer Andrew Kolb. You can download a digital copy of the book for free over at Kolb’s website (although he seems to have removed all the lyrics within the book now- thanks David Bowie).
