This is not a new one, but it seems to get better every time I play it.
I’ve put together this list during the last 15 minutes and I guess I’ve missed out a great number of equally great tracks, but I’ll try to update the list when something that I’ve missed out comes to mind. Do you have any other suggestions? Leave me a note! 🙂
Best Wishes for a great ending of 2014, and a sparkling start of 2015!
Great debut by Nicky (Åslund), from Oxelösund in Sweden!
There are so many “guy/girl sings with a guitar”-artists out there, but this guy truly stands out. A voice that leaves no one without an opinion.
Wake up is written by Nicky

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!
Best wishes for the rest of the weekend! A great track for that Saturday afternoon spirit.
If you find any of the songs interesting, I’ve opened up my public “starred folder” for those that are interested in more tips. Guess all genres are represented in that list so be prepared for many tracks you may not like. You’ll find the list here.
Simple Minds – Big Music
This is the title song from Simple Minds new album Big Music. Really really like the bombastic sound! Great comeback from a great band!
Atmospheric / Club / Lounge
Juventa, Erica Curran – Move Into The Light
For over a minute there is just a long upbeat instrumental intro followed by the whisperous voice of Erica Curran. Great for getting into that “evening-out-feeling”.
James Blake – Retrograde
Within Temptation – Paradise
The Dutch group Within Temptation (with branch colleagues like Nightwish, Tarja, Sirenia among others) is delivering a compact symphonic piece.
Yesterday I had an “old classic evening”, and stumbled over some great ones of Peter Gabriel. An amazing artist, with a standard that never goes below average, and this one is certainly WAY over average.
For those that like Frank Ocean or Kim Cesarion, check out Troye Sivan! What a great track this is!
