Fredrik “Schlatta” Svensson


VCMG “Ssss” Spotify
Electro by two legends, pretty darn good in my book.

Tiamat: “The Scarred People” Spotify
Dark, dynamic and thought provoking.

Assemblage 23 “Bruise” Spotify
More mature, still borderline hypnotic at time.

Susanne Sundfør: “The Silicone Veil” Spotify
She must be the next big music export from Norway, in any sane world at least.

Ultravox: “Brilliant” Spotify
Aptly named album.

Dead Can Dance: “Anastasis” Spotify
Most surprising comeback of the year.

Trust: “TRST” Spotify
Canadian indie electro magic.

Daybehaviour: “Follow That Car”
Strongest comeback of the year.

Orbital: “Wonky” Spotify
The Hartnoll brothers show why they still are a force to reckon with.



Ultravox: “Live” Spotify
Instantly recognizable as Ultravox.

Röyksopp ft. Susanne Sundfør: “Running to the Sea”
Norwegians masterminds unite.

Tiamat: “The Scarred People” Spotify
Fantastic first album track, loads of Sisters of Mercy influences, complete with church bells of doom.


Live artists

One mouth, two hands, loads of fun.

Lady Gaga
Anyone riding in on a (real) horse as intro deserves to be on the list.

The Cure
Monster gig at Hultsfred, unless the police had shut them down, they’d probably be still at it.



Well presented and with an aptitude for great melodies.

The new Swedish synthpop hope, Ostrich confirms it can still be done.



For getting back together and producing a fantastic album and then taking it on to the road in glorious style.
