Anti Pony gör rak och rymlig pop med skov av skrammel. Sanna Colling sjunger som om det gällde en surfresa till Nya Zeeland, körerna har vind och salt i håret och i slutet av dagen samlas alla vid lägerelden och lyssnar andäktigt på ”When I Lie”; 2017 års hittills bästa hippietryckare. Nej, jag blandade inte ihop orden ”hippie” och ”hipster” som din mormor brukar göra.
CB3 is an instrumental rock trio from Malmö, Sweden. With cosmic jams, heavy doomy riffing and epic soundscapes they have attracted the audience from both jazzclubs, rockvenues and psychfestivals since 2013. Bands like Earthless,

Enmansprojektet CO SONN har släppt hela sju egenutgivna album på Bandcamp, men nu har finsmakaretiketten Lazy Octopus signat den produktive vänersborgaren och idag är det premiär för ”Rewind” – den första officiella releasen. Och det är en låt som skalat bort all onödigt dökött, för att endast bevara rock’n’roll-skelettet. Ärlig musik bestående av två gitarrer och ett trumset. Plus sång. Upphovsmannen, vi kan kalla honom för Casper, pratsjunger och stökar på samma gång.
DEEREST is Linnéa Talps solo project, current with her upcoming EP 'Deep River Series' released in the spring of 2018.
With influences like Chelsea Wolfe, Stina Nordenstam and Anna von Hausswolff, the music is composed by drone-like landscapes, massive guitars and merciless church organ which creates an almost occult darkness. Her debut EP 'XX' was released in early 2017, produced along with György Barocsai (Mattias Alkberg, Bob Hund) from Svenska Grammofonstudion, followed by concerts on Where's the music and Manifestgalan.
Formed in 2016, DEEREST concists of:
Linnéa Talp - (vocals, electric guitar),
Sandra Karlsson - (electric guitar),
Isabell Gustafsson-Ny - (synthesizers)
Max Häggberg - (drums).
‘The Echo Fields’ strength is that excellent songwriting, and the great tunes which are at the heart of their songs. They have no pretensions, their music is there to be listened to, savoured and enjoyed. Of course, not everyone will be comfortable with music which is so obviously influenced by 60s sounds, but that is their loss.
Eterkropp består av fyra individer – ur olika generationer – med rötterna i landets nordligare delar. Två från Luleå och två från Umeå. Vägen fram till dagens sättning har varit minst sagt brokig, ungefär 15 medlemmar har passerat sedan starten för fem år sedan, men nu verkar bandet ha funnit sin ideala sammansättning. Tillsammans skapar de musik som är både monoton och utforskande, lika mycket samtida punk och indie som dåtida progg. Depprock om hoppet att livet ska bli bättre, trots vetskapen om det motsatta.
GROWTH are one of the lesser-heard great bands of our time. They’re a three-woman Swedish band, working out of Stockholm initially but now spread in different locations, making it difficult to record. To date there’s been one 45 and one cassette – a total of 4 songs, all fantastically dark, well-spaced, messy soul-eating garage blues, in the vein of Come, Little Claw and other leading lights of bummer rock.
Let’s Say We Did has been working in the periphery for a couple of years. Risen from the ashes of previous projects the band released a three track demo in 2008. Getting glowing praise from music blogers for it’s hook laden songs rooted in real rock’n’roll and was compared to everything from early Ryan Adams, Pavement, Silver Jews and Swedish acts such as Wannadies and Popsicle.
The three members of Stockholm’s Lion’s Den (Henrik Appel on guitars and vocals, Sabina Contreras Nässel on bass and vocals and Anton Strandberg on drums) have been in deep in the Swedish music scene for quite a while, having individually spent time in bands like Holograms and Wild Fangs. Since coming together as a trio, they’ve been building up quite a fanbase with their distinctive brand of lo-fi melody meets post-punk rock on their two previous singles, ‘Nothing’s Fine’ and ‘Timetimetime’. Now they’ve popped up again with a third helping, their new track ‘Scars’.
It's explosive, dark, potent, and psyched out.The main little monster fish here is the band MANKIND. Currently whipping up the underground and warehouse parties in Stockholm with their runaway, throbbing and decadent show and masterpieces produced by
Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, Regina Spektor).
The Line of Best Fit describes it as "A shock to the system not unlike a shot of adrenaline straight to the heart", NME call them "snotty four-piece MANKIND", or as The Needle Drop simply puts it; "MANKIND forever".
MANKIND, four guys that could have been seeds planted at Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris, drawing strength from the graves of Jim Morrison, Chopin and Gertrud Stein. Instead the plants grew in Ingmar Bergman's land of held back silence - bonded by a mutual musical love and existential brooding.
MANKIND were brought up on music released long before they were born and in boroughs far from where they lived (the early 90's Seattle scene, the Velvet's New York, The Door's California, London 60s...) and that's exactly where they belong artistically. But in addition they also have their own DNA, a unique sound full of odd MANKIND figments, twisted song structures, lyrics that are¨clever, angry, darkly funny, upsetting and on-point and a world of imagery and ideas that we know will keep us busy and alert.
The Presolar Sands introduced their witchy vibed psych with the 7"- single 'Voodoo Ritual' in 2015. The band has since released an EP and the debut album 'The Big Noise' released in 2017. Their latest single
Law Of Thermodynamics' was released in October 2017 and was praised by magazines such as Brooklyn Vegan, Festivalrykten and Indie Shuffle.
TPS is an explosive live band. They have played together with Kikagaku Moyo, White Hills, Brant Bjork and L.A. Witch, to name a few. They have played around Scandinavia and Europe, and at festivals such as Sweden Rock Festival, Malmöfestivalen and Copenhagen Psych Fest.
Radula is your friend of a friend starting a band in a basement of Stockholm. Radula is a struggle against everything we were taught that we can not do. Radula is shutting the basement door and grabbing eachothers hands in doubting, learning, laughing, growing and becoming. Radula is therapy. Radula is ecstasy. Radula is friendship. Radula is everything.
Runtom Knuten Started out as a punk/garage, lo-fi, DIY recording-project run by duo Johan Nilsson and Fredrik Atterfelt (aka. the Hydrant and the Pharaoh). Over time their music has evolved into an experimental
mishmash of neo-garage/alt. rock with a penchant for the quirky and unexpected. All framed by the tape noise from their Tascam eight-track, creating Runtom Knutens signum wayward sound, where tangled tape machines and humming
pedals are no barriers, but assets. Joined by Nick Martin and Ludvig
Bergtröm Björn to form a raw energy live constellation for their shows.
Their first two LP’s have received great reviews in Swedish press. Anticipating even better feedback for the planned 2018 release. For fans of Californian neo-garage such as The Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Wavves etc.. this will likely be you new favorite band.
With a past in bands like Vaken and My Sound Of Silence, Therese Lithner was an active part of Umeå's flourishing music scene in the early 2010's. During one late night session in the rehearsal room, with a lot
of reverb on vocals and guitar, she wrote three songs inspired by the roomy sound and 90’s idols. The songs felt somehow different and the idea of a solo project started to take form.
After Therese moved to Stockholm, she started to play together with drummer Andreas Sandberg in a rehearsal space south of the city. The work has resulted in an EP, set for release the 13 of June. First single Drown was out in february, acclaimed by blogs as The Line of Best Fit as “a dramatic and compelling piece of great art rock” and The Revue as a beginning to her “ascension to the throne of indie rock".
