Magic Potion – “Boored”

Magic Potion – “Boored”

  Another band demonstrating that Sweden is more than just filled with great synth-/dream-pop and indie-folk acts is Magic Potion. The Stockholm-based band makes catchy and quirky jangly indie rock / slacker pop that recalls indie stars King Tuff and Mac DeMarco. Take “Boored”, for instance, which has a summery, lo-fi, surf-rock vibe. Even the lyrics allude to bright sunshine, but […]

Cajsa Siik – “State of Low”

Cajsa Siik – “State of Low”

“State of Low” is a sublime, almost ethereal, indie-pop single by Cajsa Siik, who calls Stockholm home. This song follows last month’s release of the stirring and breathtaking “Follow You Down” and the launch of her debut album, Contra, which came out in November 2014. The LP takes more of an electro-pop approach – a bit buzzier, funkier than these […]

Feivel – “Already Standing”

Feivel – “Already Standing”

“Already Standing” is the devastatingly beautiful, new single from Stockholm singer-songwriter Feivel. The track might remind you of the power of Chan Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power) and the sonic landscapes of Lykke Li. “Already Standing” is one powerful track. Feivel is the project of pianist Elin Hörberg, and she’s supported by Anton Jansson (guitar), Isa Savbrant (bass), Måns Wikenmo (drums), […]

Taxi Taxi – “Floating Forever”

Taxi Taxi – “Floating Forever”

“Floating Forever” is the terrific, synth number from Stockholm twins Johanna and Miriam Tewolde Berhan, who go by the name as Taxi Taxi. The song is dreamy and ethereal at times, recalling the beauty of Montreal duo Milk & Bone. Yet, it has an 80s feel with the two-part harmonies of the twins and the elongated synths. The video, like […]

Lucern Raze – “Stockholm Syndrome”

Lucern Raze – “Stockholm Syndrome”

“Stockholm Syndrome” from Stockholm indie rocker Lucern Raze is a catchy, fun, garage-pop track. Imagine a wackier King Tuff (hard to believe that’s possible). This single is from his Stockholm 1 album that was released earlier this year on PNKSLM and Burger Records. The single is part of our Weekend Showcase for February 20th, a playlist of new music from the not-so-distant past […]
