Swedish shoegaze courtesy of Marybelle and their debut ep “Crush”

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

How do you like your shoegaze? Do you like fuzzy guitars and honeyed vocals that are just this side of indecipherable. If so the song “Star Horse” by the Stockholm based band Marybelle will be just what the doctor ordered. The band has just released its debut ep Crush and this song is its guiding light.

Not boring EDM from Sweden and the group Colossius

Monday, September 10th, 2012

I’ve heard a lot of bad EDM lately. In fact I’m not even sure how to tell the bad from the good at this point. Swedish EDM is no exception and in my view this musical trend has overstayed its welcome. With that said the group Colossius who record for the Fresh yo! Label are a nice change of pace. Sure the drum and bass aspect of the music is there but as you’ll here on the b-side to their new single so is a level of eclecticism you don’t normally hear in the genre.

Here’s “ISOL8″. More info here and here.
