(The Spiked Punch Party by Chicagoan Geoffrey Todd smith)
Editor’s note: I’ve got to admit that with these Swedish Music Roundup’s I’m trying to shape the discussion and highlight some of the bands that are most deserving of attention in the US. I hope the repitition doesn’t get you down!
Azltron (check out his artwork and tee’s) has another song from the US release of The LK’s record Vs. the Snow.
I passed on posting this song from Kaka, and now hearing it on #1 Hits From Another Planet I wish I hadn’t (isn’t that always the way).
Brooklyn Vegan has a new monthly spotlight thingy and Melpo Mene were selected this month. The dreamy acoustic pop of Erik Mattiason is just right for Sunday morning.
Pirates Of The Bargain Bin is all a twitter about Radio Dept. coming their way. I wonder it they’ll throw caution to the wind and go to the show.
The electronic heavy mp3 blog Random Circuits has a bang up remix of Pär Grindvic’s “Do Us Part”.
The hype on Lykke Li is reaching atmospheric proportions and as of yet I am still not turned off by her music/persona. In fact, with each listen and glimpse I am drawn in deeper. Just about everyone weighed in this week, but it was the always impressive Said The Gramophone who broke with convention for a really clever post about Lykke.
