I thought I was fed up with dark, goth music. Then Legend came around…
The xx: Coexist
It didn’t hit me at first but after a couple of listens I was hooked. The relationship I have with this album will most likely become similar to the one I have with Massive Attack’s “Mezzanine”; an album that always seems to find it’s way back to my headphones.
Röyksopp and Susanne Sundfør: “Ice Machine”
I tend to dislike Depeche Mode covers out of principle but when Röyksopp and Susanne Sundfør performed this song on Norwegian TV they gave me goosebumps, big time! Probably the only DM cover you’ll ever need.
They totally had the audience in Stockholm this autumn. Lot’s of love in the air.
Gira and friends totally changed the atmosphere at Pustervik in Gothenburg this summer. Respect!
OK, I sure was sceptical about Kraftwerk headlining the Way Out West festival but was proven so wrong in the end. I’m grateful that the 3D-glasses hid the tears in my eyes.
I must travel to Iceland and give the band a hug!
Please, do not wait another 8 years before you release your next album.
Obscure, dark – and extremely good.
They managed to overcome the hype of the first album by releasing an even better better follow-up.
