What’s been up and what’s going on…

As said before, have the second half of the year 2014 been, in our standards, quite slow with only one release each month, except for July when we gave you two.

It all started off, in the beginning of July, with Rickard och Juvelerna’s ”Madeleine på broplatsen” (Rickard och Juvelerna – Madeleine på Broplatsen), followed two weeks later by the summer single “Tuggummi och sommarregn” (Lars Ludvig Löfgren – Tuggummi & sommarregn) from Lars Ludvig Löfgren. This two July releases was followed by the August release of ”Unsure” (Sanna Stuardo – Unsure), which was the second single from Sanna Stuardo. In September it was time for a cool retro album ”Groover’s Manoeuvres” (Albatross – Groovers’ Maneuvers) from Gothenburg based Albatross. Octobers release was also a Gothenburg one, namely ”Burning floors” (Alexia Enberg – Burning Floors – Single) by Alexia Enberg. So after this it’s only two month and two releases left of this year. In November its once again time for Rickard och Juvelerna. This time around they’ll give us a farty party song called ”Havanna-himmel”, with a release date sat to the 25th. The last release this year will be a new single from KFM. KFM who each and every year, since a couple of years back, comes up with a new single.

In other words, stay tune for more information.

DUELLEN

A damn good band from Uppsala are Duellen, a band that should deserve much more attention. So far we have released five songs together with them, but much more is coming on. Because if all goes well, they will start record a couple of new songs in the near future.

Until then, I think you all should listen to their epic ”Sysslomansgatan” a suggestive and emotional song about the fact that nobody wants to go home alone after a late night out.

So if interested, use of any of the links below, because Duellen is worth it.

More about Albatross

As mentioned before, this week we’ve released the cool debut album from Albatross. An album which holds some strong influences from the sound of the sixty and seventies, together with the lure of psychedelic elements, indeed a solid wholeness. The album is also available to purchase (hope you’re interested) from our shop as physical copies. Both CD (http://shop.textalk.se/en/article.php?id=395&art=23866083) and vinyl (http://shop.textalk.se/en/article.php?id=395&art=23866990) is to procure.

But what I have’t said before, is that Albatross will perform live at Pustervik (Gothenburg) on September the 6, this coming Saturday. Doors open from 19:00, and they will be on stage 20:00. So if you by any chance are near Gothenburg and like the cool sound from a new band. Be there.

Tuggummi & sommarregn

This is a great song for all of you who fancy cheerful guitar oriented pop-songs. “Unfortunately” we haven’t seen much of rain, perhaps that’s why this song has not been played as much as it should?

Nevertheless, rain will fall sooner nor later. So here’s a Spotify link to a great summer song about chewing gum and summer rain, hope you like it: Lars Ludvig Löfgren – Tuggummi & sommarregn

More to come…

Today is the day when we release the new and awesome summer single “Vimmel” (on Spotify: Duellen – Vimmel) from the fine quintet DUELLEN. But let me, at this point, already now proclaim the upcoming single, ”Madeleine på broplatsen”, from Rickard and Juvelerna, with a release next Wednesday. In my opinion this is a truly fantastic low-key acoustic song . A song about a promise of that special day with that special girl that turns out to be a complete defeat. A song of echoes from distant times that have lingered. A song about the desire to get a rematch, but it won’t happen. A song for long summer nights, when the rain gentle falls.

Bedroom Eyes

For a couple of years ago we released a truly wonderful pop album (on Spotify:Bedroom Eyes – The Long Wait Champion) by an act called Bedroom Eyes. It has certainly past some time, but right now he (yes it’s a he, Jonas Jonsson aka Bedroom Eyes) is about to finalizing a new album. Do not know exactly when it is expected to be completed but hopefully soon. The only thing I know for certain is that he has worked together with Andresas Mattsson. How results will be, well we must wait and see.

In the meantime, you can always check out this cool video: https://vimeo.com/98018544

Next up!

During this spring we have released quite a few debutantes, another one is Höstdroppar (Autumn Drops) that will give us a beautiful five track EP very soon indeed (release June 16). So therefor I thought I might ask them a couple of questions.

- First of all, Höstdroppar is a duo, what can you tell us about yourself?

- We are two impulsive, emotional and naive souls who never compromise with the lyrics or the melodies in our songs. Simplicity and straightness is the keyword if you ask me.

- Well I also know in fact that one part of you, Alexander, was indeed involved in tribute songs for both Örebro Hockey as well as for ÖSK. Are you generally interested in sports, or how did it happen that you became involved in these tribute songs?

- I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in sports. Mostly football. In the end it was still a combination of strong melodies and lyrics that involving people. It’s obviously a great honor to be given the opportunity to sing these two tribute songs.

 - I See, and talking about Örebro, what can you tell us about the music climate down there?

- Pop music has long been overshadowed by punk and a little harder rock but I have a feeling that more and more popbands are popping up, ha ha.

- Okay I see. Nevertheless, we should talk a little bit more about your (Höstdroppars) debut EP, a truly beautiful one if you ask me. In other words, what kind of expectations do you have on the release of your EP?

- Thank you. Glad to hear it! People always say that an EP is only an EP. We have not really thought so. It has been important for us to release something that we can really stand for. We are pleased with the results but also know that this only is the beginning. Our debut record is expected to be complete in the fall so you will hear more from us in the near future!

 - And there was no doubt that you would sing in Swedish, it was an obvious choice for you, or?

- No doubt, in contrast there is a large challenge. Everything becomes more difficult in Swedish. You cannot put in weary sentences you might have gotten away with if it were in English.

- True. So if you two had to agree on only one artist that you both would say was good enough to be mentioned here, who would it then become?

- Hurts, we sing out in choir!

- Aha, a British duo who sing quite sad songs, some similarities their perhaps? Don’t answer. Instead last question, since I’m curious, which one of the five tracks are your personally favorite and tell us why?

- “Död och Himlar”, we also sing out in choir! That’s the song that is most of what we said earlier. Straight, honest and emotional. A straight and powerful pop song simply said.

- Okay then we know a little bit more about Höstdroppar. Good luck with everything.

- Thax!
