Rasmus Kellerman has a new band, but he won't tell us what it's called, or who else is in it. If you've wanted more of the arrestingly heart-felt acoustic music that Kellerman began to explore with the album "The 24th" , you won't be getting it (or at least, not right now). The album that Kellerman released under his own name was marked by a stripped-down honesty carried by his clear voice and lone guitar, with lyrics more autobiographical than his project Tiger Lou . It's brave when a musician takes on [...]
Blog: It's a trap!
Apparently Oslo and Stockholm are ahead of the curve when it comes to music discovery (and rejection): http://www.wired.co.uk/news/ar chive/2012-04/18/cities-musica l-taste
Essential first-wave Swedish hardcore that's raging fast, surprisingly melodic and also a heckuva lot of fun. Even better, the rare tracks culled from various cassette releases, live sessions and so on are every bit as good as the band's all-too-few official vinyl recordings, limited to a mere split 7" with fellow Swedes Panik and the first volume of the "Really fast" comp series. Hopefully most folks who fit the target audience for this LP will have already picked it up by now, but for dabblers there's always Spotify . - Avi Roig [...]

Pitchfork likes the new Enslaved album "RIITIIR" , but perhaps not quite as much as some folks: http://pitchfork.com/reviews/a lbums/17147-riitiir/
Check out the Facebook page for "Den Svenska Synthen" , an upcoming book by Bengt Rahm (one of the founders of Labrador Records ) on the Swedish synth scene including interviews with tons of bands, labels and more: https://www.facebook.com/DenSv enskaSynthen Swedish-only unfortunately, but that's the way these things go.
Yep, the crusties will love this! Hombre Malo kick off proceedings off and, to be honest, they do take a while to hit their stride. Once they do though, they just click and you're right in there with them, tearing shit up. The first three tracks are essentially punked-up stoners while closing track "Burial ground for a past life" showcases the Oslo-based sludgers at their finest. The punky stuff might sound cool and all, but when Hombre Malo hit mid-pace before slowing to a drawn-out, doomed halt, it's as pummelling as a bag of [...]

In i dimman by In i dimman Cool! A Swedish band whose sound harkens back to the early days of Kent and other similar 90s-era alt-rock.
Ghost and Jess & the Ancient Ones have a lot to answer for. Between them they seem to have started this classic rock-tinged occult psychedelic thing where the next, more underground generation think that loose 'n' lo-fi is the way to go. Although Seremonia sound nothing like fellow countrymen Beherit , they have gone for an odd production choice similar in ethos to "Drawing down the moon" . The difference is that going out on a pre-planned lo-fi limb like that really worked for Beherit back in '93 and resulted in [...]
