Swedish Music: Vita Bergen – Disconnection

Since over 90% of this blog’s visitors comes from other countries than Sweden, I try to give samples of the Swedish Music scene. This is a new Swedish project called Vita Bergen (White Mountains in english). A great group, with a modern/contemporary sound. As always when I hear new music I’m starting to look for similarities with other artists, and with Vita Bergen I think you’ll find some strong influences from groups like Arcade Fire.

Vita Bergens music can be described as pompous, melodic with heavy synth drapes in the background.

Even though “Curtains” seems to be their own first choice from this EP, I think that the track Disconnection is even better. Great track, and a great debut from this Swedish group!

Goodness – Some Thoughts About It

For a long time I’ve been thinking about the word “goodness”.

If you’re looking on a regular Facebook-feed, or other social media you’ll find a number of people telling others about their good deeds, and actually that’s wonderful! Don’t doubt that! We really need good deeds, and we really need good role models!

But a good deed, in my mind, isn’t necessarily a sign of a good person.

Why?

A good deed done in public, is always good (don’t doubt that), but a good deed done in public also has the purpose of giving credit to the person who made it.

So, in that sense, will a truly good person be?

“A person who do great things for others, while no-one else is watching”?

Do you agree?

San Francisco And Vegas – Photos

During the last few weeks I’ve visited San Francisco and Vegas. Two amazing cities. San Francisco when it comes to being cozy, friendly and open, and Vegas when it comes to craziness. Not a bad “crazy”. More in terms of a place that doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world.

This will the first post in a series, of these great cities. I hope you enjoy.

Best wishes for a new week.
