Our three most played songs on Spotify (Sweden) during April contained a truly sensation at place three. The first two you’re familiar with since previous months, but who was the third one?

So here in the summer time, and on our latitudes bad weather, I thought I might as well go through our entire catalog, of over 2000 songs, to look for everything that we have released, where words like summer, sunny, and sun were in the title. I also added a few songs that had the months of June and July in the title.
All in all I found the 24 tracks, may have missed some, which must mean that I have not worked with the most summer-hungry artists. Anyway, I have compiled these songs as a Spotify list which you can enjoy if you use the link below. Can promise that it is a mix of very old and long forgotten songs, together with some new, in different genres and with different qualities. It may also be noted that artists in the genre of power pop had more predilection to write about summer or sunny phenomena.

Summer times but we still have some stuff to be out before we close the store, only to return in August. What we’re up to, these first couple of weeks of July, are three very, indeed, strong singles, in various genres.
First out is Sanna Stuardo’s new catchy and groovy ”Invincible”, with a release sat for Wednesday the first of July. A week later it is time for MODESTIJ’s third single, in as many months, ”WARP ZONE”. A pretty damn cool song if you ask me, which you should. Last out of our July releases (13th of July) is Emma Hallin’s first self-written release in quite a few years. A beautiful, nice laid back story that listens to the name ”Sold My Soul”. One could easily say that ”Sold My Soul” is a song within a classical singer songwriter style.
In other words, stay tune for more information.
This week we have no new release’s but already on Monday will MODESTIJ’s new single appear, the second in order of what will be a whole range of songs. Don’t you know what MODESTIJ is all about, check this link and listen to his super cool debut single ”COLD LOVE”: https://open.spotify.com/track/4l819b21Z4dKkbyKjNcKE0
Among the three most streamed songs on Spotify Sweden during March are of course Höga Bergets ”Under Blåa Bergens Kant” (Under the Blue Mountains Edge). But which are the other two? Use this link if you’re interested: https://open.spotify.com/user/1111510618/playlist/7eFqMRbtfH2nAlmeuIFSaM
If interested, check it out (the video for Höga Berget’s “Hisingen sunset): https://vimeo.com/129202394
Yesterday we released, as mentioned earlier, the High mountain’s new single, the excellent fine Hisingen sunset. But it’s not the only release this week. On Friday, we will release a real indie gem from The High Fives. A two-track single called “The Show Goes On.” Damn cool song if you ask me.
On Monday we’ll release a new song by and with Höga Berget, a song which incidentally named “Hisingen sunset”. Certainly hope all you that liked their first release “Under blåa bergens kant” (Under the blue mountains edge) find this equally good.
So until Monday, you can always listen to this once again: https://open.spotify.com/track/2sG2b0e0XRMR6S5bO08IYW
For a couple of weeks ago we released the first single from MODESTIJ and already now can we announce the sequel, a song called THE SHAKES.
And for your information, if interested, can you see MODESTIJ live tomorrow (Tuesday the 12th) in Stockholm at Maskineriet (Vasaplan 3) if you by any coincidence are in the neighbourhood.
Finally, why don’t you use this Spotify link to check out what MODESTIJ is all about. Personally I think it’s damn cool stuff: https://open.spotify.com/track/4l819b21Z4dKkbyKjNcKE0
On Monday, this coming week, we will release Kataokas debut album ”Anthesis”, a band which you can read about through this link: http://www.westsidefabrication.se/bands/kataokas/
Anyway, Kataokas are a seven piece band from Gothenburg which can be said to be some kind of folk rock combo. “Anthesis”, their forthcoming album, holds ten great tracks, fast, slow, emotional, magnificent, yes everything is in there.
Later this month two other releases will see the daylight. First out is the new and forward awaited new single from Örebro’s finest Höga Berget. Their new single is called ”Hisingen sunset”. A couple of days later, the 29th of May, we’ll give you our first release from The High Fives. A band that now have come back from a couple of years rest. Their new and super cool indie alternative two-track single is called ”The Show Goes On”, which we all can agree on.
For more information, stay tune.
