This is the second band I have reviewed from the 104 000 strong city of Linköping and I look forward to being able to introduce everyone in due course… Unmistakably Scandinavian the music floats across […]

Good Morning Spider

Good Morning Spider is the solo musician Viktor Rinneby from Malmö in Sweden producing his lo-fi psychedelia. You may recall the name Rinneby from Turn Off Your Television, Viktor is Jon’ brother. With a muted hush a fuzzed fusion of inter-weaving sounds emerge from the speakers and caress the ears with an entrancing wave of transience that […]

Firstborn comprises of Marcus Carlzon, Joachim Ragnarsson, Max Pontén and Aron Bergström. What is certain is that the Boras (Sweden) based band know their sound. The metal that seems to be coming out of Europe at the moment is certainly recognisable; a much more clean and polished finish than what you would traditionally call metal. I […]

Karin Park

Karin Park hails from Djura in Sweden. Now based in the UK, she continues to mesmerise with the electro-house beats that wrap around the head. On live performances you will find Karin appearing with David Park. Living in Churches – Karin comes from a 400 population village inside a religious family – it does remind me of […]


Radjoteatern from Stockholm in Sweden is the electronic-indie duo of Pontus Englund and Pentti Lindén who started the band back in 2010. There is always a frisson of excitement when material arrives from Sweden, a hot-bed of some of the most avant-garde and engaging music from around the world. Radjoteatern do not let the expectations down. This music seems […]

Revl9n LP review Walking Down The Heat

Revl9n, the Swedish Alternative indie band has just released their new LP Walking Down The Heat. The ten track album opens with Night Vision a reverberation of guitar trampolines against the vocal which is so reminiscent of Feargal Sharkey as to be uncanny. I thought I was listening to Jimmy Boy, but I found myself moved away from Ulster to wide open fjords. When Mercury Hits […]
