short period of time. And by all means it is such a beautiful song,
in my ears, probably the best Darcy song ever. We are also releasing
a new three track single from our flag ship right now Olle Nyman
later on. The single includes two previously unreleased Olle Nyman
tracks as well as a radio edit version of his song "Devil´s prey".

We are proud to be aware of all the fine reviews Penniless have received for their latest album "The Attraction". Read for your self down below and get yourself your own copy at the nearest supplier.

Åbo Underrättelser (23.3.2007)
The Attraction is full to the brim with memorable moments which surely could defend their position on any rock oriented iPod playlist.
Frans Rinne

Desibeli (2.3.2007)
4½ / 5
"Feels like Penniless never would have sounded as good and compelling, though the band has been pick of it's own bunch for a long time, quite on international level as well. Just that Finland is a bad place for showing off, periphery as we are. But what if the hour would now come at last for this pioneer too?"
Ilkka Valpasvuo

Rumba (04/2007)
4 / 5
"The most underrated indie band of Finland back in upright rotation… Once again it's merry easily to pick out brilliant tracks. In the middle of the album there's for example an impressive triplet: mellowly rolling Denial, Snail-like buzzing Hitchhiker and lazy drowsy Cracks on the road. A splendid movement of strength, an excellent disc!"
Kimmo K. Koskinen

Soundi (02/2007)
4 / 5
"All the suspicions can be buried immediately when the first track kicks off. Precisely to the point named Action! reminds of those things which in past years made Penniless the best english singing band of Finland: delicate and catching melodies, solid guitar walls and fitting play on words going-on."
Jari Jokirinne

Sue (March 2007)
9 / 10
"Musically the package is in shape. Penniless spews out its power rock laid back and with enthusiasm. Years of experience creates an airy sound, which many high-strung tooter should learn from. When it's time for grinding, the grinding is for real. When calming down, the pop sensibility is cared for with dignity."
Tuomas Tiainen

Keskisuomalainen (17.3.2007)
5 / 5
"Following trends is as such neither a merit or a burden for music, the most important thing is that it's well done. And Penniless does it well indeed. New and old influences are fused togethet with virtuosity, and also the song material is stronger than ever all down the line."
Markus Mattlar

Etelä-Suomen Sanomat (25.3.2007)
4 / 5
"The melodies of Penniless are extremely catchy, guitar riffs tight and its rock rattles edgily. Echoes of Pixies and Weezer, and also of Egotrippi via The Strokes to 22-pistepirkko can be spotted on The Attraction. However, these guys have their own sound in charge all the time, and there's no room for compromises."
Ville Álen

Dear friends,
After a sunny, warm and lazy summer we're now ready for a fantastic autumn! Our great plans right now goes like this:

Luleå's finest MABD released their second album "Jag skall bli en bättre vän" a year ago. The album included great songs like "Politix", "Ragnar" and "Ta Helg". Now they're back with a new brilliant album called "Ditt hjärta är en stjärna" (Release date 4 th October). This time it's a more mature MABD that'll be alive, but you who liked them before will not be disappointed. The hit song "Reevolution" will be sent to radio stations and be available as a download on 11th of September. During the recording session, which was produced by old team mate Jari Haapalainen, MABD got some help from musicians like Carla Jonsson (Eldkvarn) and Jonas Kullhammar (Jazz Grammy winner). Is this The Album of the Year?

Henry Chapman
is also coming along with some new great stuff. This time it's a download release only with two songs called "(Känn dig riktigt) Blåst" and "Isär" , available from our own Klicktrack page as well as other downloading places on September 11. The debut album "Futurum" was released earlier this year and song "Från Pärm Till Pärm" was tracklisted on National Radio during the whole summer. In September Henry Chapman will to some gigs in Sweden. What's been confirmed so far is:

13.9. Kulturhuset/Lava, Stockholm
16.9. Woody West @ Pusterviksbaren, Göteborg
22.9. Corazon @ Marité, Östersund
25.9. Kåren, Piteå

Björn Norestig from Köping is back with a truly fantastic full-length debut album called "Hello Inside"! It'll be released on 27th of September and unlike from his last 7-track record "Come Take A Shine" he now plays with a whole band. Before the release date we'll make a video and send the title song "Hello Inside" to radio stations. It's a great soulful pop song and soon you can download it from Klicktrack among others.

Later in Fall a new song and video by Minxy Soul Models will be available for download. The song is called "99 Times" and is taken from their debut album "Transparent Yeah". Stay tuned.


To say farewell to a friend can be very painful, but it often leads to something good in the end.

The Skellefteå-based band élodie released their debut album "it's too bad you're leaving" in 2005 and they are now back with the EP "at the end of the line", that consist of five dark, emotional and melodic tracks. The band will do their last concert ever at Trästockfestivalen on 22nd of July and the EP is the last recordings from this beautiful band (sad but true).

"at the end of the line" is co-released together with our nice friends at Music Is My Girlfriend Recordings and Jezebel Recordings. Go get your physical record here and the digital version of the record here.

Indie pop/rock quartet Monastir is back with a sample called "Feel No Summer" from their new recordings. The great song is available on Klicktrack and Nimson today. "Feel No Summer" is an apathetic late summer hit, to put it briefly.

Another news worth mentioning is that Henry Chapman's song "Från Pärm Till Pärm" is playlisted on Swedish National Radio P3. Tune in and enjoy.

A new sunny powerpop song from Jupither is now only available for download from Klicktrack and Nimson, Inprodicon and iTunes. It's called "Friends" and is the first tasty sample from the forthcoming album, that'll be released later this year.


It's summertime and that means a lot of sun, ice cream and great festivals. This summer some of our bands will perform at Trästockfestivalen in Skellefteå.

Most important is that The Bear Quartet will do their only concert this summer at the festival! Don't miss it! Other great West Side bands who will perform is Mattias Alkberg BD, Olle Nyman, Minxy Soul Models, Henry Chapman, Jupither, Steamboat Rally, Holiday with Maggie and élodie. And that's not enough because some old West Side favourites also will perform on the festival! Don't miss this years reunion gigs with: Backfish, The All Janet, Holger Danske and Blodungen.

See you guys in the grass!
