- Kalle J - When you see me
Swede Kalle J heavily samples Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel in this modern disco jem.
- Bertine Zetlitz - Islands In the Stream (feat. Thom Hell) (Hell Sessions)
The original duet with Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers is a terrible guilty pleasure of mine. Bertine Zetlitz delivers a stripped down version featured on her In My Mind 1997 - 2007 - Best Of Bertine Zetlitz compilation.
- Bryn Christopher - Sour Times
Starting to sense a theme here? Bryn Christopher does an amazing cover the Portishead classic. Should be featured on a James Bond soundtrack!
- Saint Etienne - This Is Tomorrow
I know, I know - another Saint Etienne song. Does this obsession ever end? No. This British band is after all one of the greatest bands in the history of the world in my (not so) very humble opinion. Why you say? Well, they helped define the whole indie dance genre for one. And they're not afraid to cross genres. …

Set 23 2008, 15:48 di sudd
Feb 7 2008, 12:29 di oslofish2008 has been good to my ears thus far. It all kicked off with a new release from Goldfrapp, the brilliant Seventh Tree; a low-key album filled with well-written lyrics and striking melodies. The second covers record from Cat Power, Jukebox, didn’t disappoint either, nor did Hot Chip’s Made in the Dark, with a title track so beautiful it makes me tear up every time I listen to it. But more than anything, 2008 has proven to be a good year for discovering new artists. Valente, Sam Sparro, Caroline, Samantha James, Duffy, Adele, Soviet, Kalle J and diskJokke are all on my watch-list, have all received frequent plays and will continue to do so.
On rare occasions, I discover an artist who stuns me with their talent. Nellie McKay was such a discovery when she released Get Away From Me in 2004. This time around, with a little help from my friend, Dieter, ( hdsander), Brooke Waggoner found her way onto my playlist and quite literally made my jaw drop in amazement. …
Dic 7 2007, 19:47 di _oleThere's something about Sweden. In 2007. Here's why;
Swedish Studio's laidback remix of Kylie Minogue's 2 Hearts (Studio Remix) is an essential sunday morning.
Alexis Weak's Rytmen av Natten and his first attempt to reach space with his teammates at La Vida Locash; Första Svensken i Rymden
Adam Tensta's rapclashs; They Wanna Know and My Cool
Lykke Li's beautiful Little Bit
Nov 28 2006, 13:11 di fyllefarsanSo, not having that much to do, and not wanting to study, I will now start copying all the artists in my iTunes library inte this journal. Of course, this will be a never-ending task, with my library updating och growing almost every day. Any way, I'll start from the top and then just keep on going.
I will include artists I only have one track by, but not tracks with several artist contributing (If it's a "feat." track, I will only mention the main artist).
If you notice that I'm missing out in an artist you believe I would appreciate, please tell me!
...and then I turned seven...
A Hawk and a Hacksaw
A Journey Down the Well
Adam Kay & Suman Biswas
The Album Leaf
The American Analog Set
...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
Antony & the Johnsons

Gen 1 2006, 13:45 di peatherThe first song I listened to this year was Summer holiday, and it was probably the last song I listened to in 2005 too. Kalle J is my hero, definitely. He does actually inspire me to make music. I just need some equipment, I already have a lot of ideas!
Anyway, this is my fourth journal entry mentioning Kalle J. Am I a fanatic?
Dic 30 2005, 8:14 di peatherThis was the year of the blog, Shaktar, black-and-pink sneakers, singing, Johann Sebastian Bach, The Killers, Le Sport, Robyn, Håkan Hellström and so many more.
I don't know how to summarize it all, I will present my best of-list on my blog tomorrow. It has been a year of musical revolution, especially with the mp3-format gaining a lot of ground. Today it is possible to make your own music, and actually get it to sound really good, without the need of expensive equipment. Anyone who owns a computer can make music. I love it! Without that we wouldn't have Le Sport, Kalle J and many more. Jens Lekman records everything at home, and how would our lives be without his songs?
Anyways, a happy new year to you all! And we hope that 2006 will be an even better year in music than 2005 ever was!
Dic 27 2005, 12:25 di peatherWell, it's a hard time writing my essay, but still, it feels quite good. You can't complain too much about it when you sit down by the computer with a very good cup of espresso and an even better piece of chocolate, listening to music and thinking about the concept of genre.
Right now, please listen to:
Johann Sebastian Bach
