Music: Favorite Track 2013

My favorite “track discovery” from last year is Frank Oceans “Strawberry Swing”, a version of Coldplay’s track with the same name. I totally love Coldplay, but I think that Frank Ocean’s version is absolutely amazing! What an awesome track!

Another track from the same album, is a “semi-cover” of Eagles song Hotel California, named “American Wedding”. A great track with those great lyrics that Frank Ocean always delivers.

Music: The Merrymakers

I’m actually a little bit ashamed. Sometimes good things are too close to recognize.

During my late upbringing in Piteå there was a band called Merrymakers; a band that made it to the international scene. But sometimes it’s strange, people that you went to school with; can they really be top class material? Yes, they can.

In my case, I totally missed out on their awesome music, which is actually even more strange since I totally loved Jellyfish and ABBA, and I think there are so many influences from both of them here.

So, if you want to have a taste, and don’t want to make the same mistake as I did, check them out.
