As you’ll read I didn’t write today’s post. Alex did in the form of an email to me. I couldn’t say it any better or with more conviction so here’s the email and a song from Andy Love.
Hi there! You don’t know me, I found your email through the Swedesplease blog. First off I want to thank you for the blog of which I am an avid reader and listener since several years back. You may or may not get a lot of emails similar to this one (if so I apologize) but the reason I’m emailing you is that I’d like to recommend a band, or rather, a person, that I think you might like to feature on Swedesplease.
Andy Love, or Anders, is a guy who is too shy for his own good. After recording a couple of songs at his kitchen table a few years back and posting them on Myspace he seemed surprised to find huge interest in his music. He was interviewed by (the now dead) Le Manchester and other sites (see link below) as well asked to come and play at Mondo in Stockholm. Sadly he turned the offer down and subsequently removed his music saying he did not deserve the attention.
However, a few years have gone by and Anders has bounced back and is recording songs like never before.
Here’s one, thanks again Alex.
