Kamera - Ressurection ( 2007 )

"The first Kamera album contains some great pop gems, but this new album, appropriately named “Resurrection”, is a more evolved effort. And even though you might be forgiven if you think you’re listening to New Order when the opening song starts, it’s a damn fine follow-up.Uptempo, guitar driven radio pop is mixed with synthpop, and Kamera always delivers the catchy. “I Was Made for You”, “Talk About” and the Pet Shop Boys-ish “I’m Gonna Be Your Lover” make up a neat electro pop trio towards the end of the album that fulfills my longing for sweet tunes.
The singles from the debut album got quite a lot of radio play here in Sweden, and I would say that chances are pretty good this time around too. It might be too cheesy for some at times, but hey, we can’t all be tough guys with goggles and army boots."
Release Magazine

"Growing up in the shadows of super-groups like The Cure, Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, Duran Duran, and Depeche Mode, one can become heavily influenced by a certain type of aesthetic. Fashion, intrigue, and romance become core virtues, and the music is wrapped tightly around a visual style that enhances the experience with a rush of sexual, sensual emotion. For most bands, these are nothing more than fleeting moments in time. KAMERA have captured something different. "If you listen to the radio here in Sweden, you'll hear maybe six or seven bands in the course of an hour that sound like Dexys Midnight Runners," jokes Carl DeLorean, drummer and chief lyricist for Kamera. "That's been trendy for a long time now. It's either about being very indie or very pop, but we're a bit in between." Kamera was formed back in 2000 by DeLorean, singer Joakim Hjelm, and bassist Kit Balance as a dynamic juxtaposition to the vapid Stockholm suburb they all inhabited."

Cat Power - Dark End Of The Street EP ( 2008 )

"Another round of mix-tape ready covers from Cat Power - with these leftovers from the Jukebox album sessions taking in Creedence, Otis and The Flying Burrito Brothers amongst others. As with Jukebox itself, this record provides something of a mystery. While the song choices are more in keeping with my personal favourites than the previous album, the delivery is just plain predictable. Marshall gives a perfectly acceptable delievery of every song, but adds little personality to the originals and just sounds like a lounge room crooner - leaving you to think, "what's the point?".

The Chinese Stars - Listen To Your Left Brain ( 2007 )

"At only nine tracks long,
Listen To Your Left Brain is wise not to outstay its welcome: this hi-hat-heavy brand of dance-punk has been done almost exponentially to death already, however discordant this outfit’s guitars from time to time. All swaggering hips and dribbling lips, the songs unfold in a thoroughly sticky manner – ‘Bored With This Planet’ is a first-listen highlight, its bass line filthy in the extreme. It’s the sort of song no man alive would be able to resist dirty dancing to." Drowned In Sound ( read more )

Boy Kill Boy - The Stars And The Sea (2008)

"For Boy Kill Boy, Stars And The Sea really is their make or break record. Debut album Civilian may have sold well initially, but critical indifference and a lack of quality material at the time seemed to relegate the band to also-ran status before they'd even had chance to check the spikes on their running shoes, let alone leave the starting blocks. Their legacy is not so much forgotten, then, but was never really signed or sealed in the first place."

Shock Cinema - Hell and Highwater (2008)

“Nestled somewhere in between the spitfire art punk of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the quirky Portuguese pop of Os Mutantes, lies Brooklyn start-ups Shock Cinema. The album title is accurate, chainsaw guitar work, eerie synths and cryptic song titles…They’ve got this scratchy fire about them, captured all the best in the all-French cut “Art of Noir,” that careens erratically under your skin, itching to flurry up your most punkish arm flailings. Catch ‘em now, while they’re still angry.”

“Here’s a band headed for big things: Shock Cinema. Their tight, punchy 30-minute EP is one of the most electrifying debuts we’ve heard this year, a blistering mix of punk, power pop, electronica and even a bit of dub.”

"Zoo Brazil has been the current nom de studio of Stockholm based DJ and producer Jon Andersson since 2002, joining his previous projects Laid, Cuba Computers, Nars and Outcold. Zoo Brazil follow a deep techno path, with generous nods to trance. Working with partner Johan Emmoth, No Place Like Home follows on from Zoo Brazil Needs You and Video Rockets with another offering of warm hearted, ice cold music.

The Heavenly States - Delayer (2008)

"Oaktown’s The Heavenly States may wear their pulsating hearts on their sleeves, but I’ll take earnest power-pop liberalism over bored mall-punk any day. From their self-titled 2003 debut to their recent Black Comet, the bands arch wordplay and jagged composition on tracks like “Pretty Life” and “Borderline” have been as compelling as they have been hilarious. Remember, these left-fielders signed on Hardware Wars creator Ernie Fosselius to direct their video for “Car Wash.” So, yeah, they’re well-versed in the intersection of entertainment and absurdity, political or otherwise. (For more on that score, check out their hilarious Flash short Osama bin Lozenges on YouTube. It’s a riot.) This advertisement of the Heavenly States’ artistic agenda was indeed paid for by the L.A. Weekly. But I would have given it to them for free, if they couldn’t pay."

Black Strobe - A Remix Selection (2006)

"The nine Black Strobe remixes coming next will be known to anyone remotely familiar with post-electroclash trends on the current underground house and techno scenes, mostly because their formula is – let’s face it – pretty much always the same. They superimpose their martial and (not-always-subtle) EBM-enhanced beats on top of the original work (the way they abuse Sweet Light’s own delicate ‘Abusator’ is the closest you’ll ever get to the aural equivalent of anal rape) while keeping the pop elements of the vocals and adding a few oscillating bleeps here and there. Smagghe and Rebotini are at their best when they allow the influence of early Warp stuff (think Sweet Exorcist, Forgemasters, even Tricky Disco) to shine through their two-tone melodies and industrial atmospheres: The Rapture’s pulsating ‘Sister Savior’ and David Carretta, The Hacker & Millimetric’s ‘Moscow Reisen’ detonation (French electro’s own self-absorbed ‘We Are the World’) are the most perfectly realized – and efficient – examples of the Black Strobe work ethos. More Mark Bell, less Twiggy Ramirez, then."

Lykke Li - Youth Novels [2008]

Produzido por Björn Yttling, Youth Novels revela vários pontos de contacto com alguns projectos oriundos da Suécia, nomeadamente com a banda do seu produtor (os Peter, Björn & John, pois claro), ou ainda com os Taken By Trees (ou seja, Victoria Bergsman, ex-The Concretes). Estamos claramente no campo da pop, mas distantes das vertentes electro-clash que caracterizam muitos projectos suecos recentes. A pop de Lykke Li é chique e elegante, sóbria, serena, mistura traços de soul, folk e electrónica. Contrariamente àquilo que se poderia prever - e apesar de haver três ou quatro canções com grandes potencialidades comerciais, nomeadamente as excelentes "I'm Good I'm Gone", "Complaint Department" ou "Breaking It Up" -, este é um álbum até bastante downtempo e contemplativo ou não abordasse ele um período emocionalmente complicado da vida de Li (o fim de um relacionamento). Por isso mesmo, esperem-se canções de amor apaixonadas e sofridas, geralmente entristecidas, mas também alguns momentos mais sorridentes e de cabeça erguida. A sua voz é outro dos pontos fortes: jovial sem ser imatura, por vezes sensual, frágil, doce, ternurenta, mas segura também... enfim, há ali qualquer coisa de misterioso e fascinante..."

The Holidays - When The Ship Goes Down EP (2008)

"In respect to our main aim when starting a band, which was nothing other than to play music we enjoy, we have been pretty successful; we like at least half of the stuff we play. By other parameters I don't know, but we've been lucky enough to tour with some great artists like Jamie T, The Wombats, The View, Ben Kweller and others, and these kind of experiences don't come along every day.
We've just released our second EP, in an effort to continue the success of the first, while we prepare to make our debut album. Things are already happening and styles are emerging that might surprise some and please others, but on the whole I think we're looking good. We've been touring pretty hard lately and hopefully some of you outside the major cities have had a chance to see us. Over the next few months I hope that those who haven't caught our show, do, whether it be at a big festival, or a sweaty little club show near you. We like to think that 9/10 times we can put you in a better mood, why not."

Alaska in Winter - Holiday (2008)

"After spending half a year in an east Berlin flat, Brandon Bethancourt (AKA Alaska in Winter) awoke one afternoon after a 16 hour-straight dance party from the previous weekend only to discover that there on his computer, was a fully finished, and totally rad new album.
Yes indeed... Brandon has no recollection of how that music got there on his laptop other than vague fragmented late night memories that involve synthesizers, lasers, berliner pils, haus musik, and possibly some singing... but regardless, Brandon pretty much had so much fun, and miraculously, an album came out if it some how... and Brandon's pumped about it... and you should be too!
Alaska in Winter's 2nd album, "Holiday" will be hitting your eardrums like a german techno party subwoofer on November 18th."

The Little Kicks - EP (2008)

"Despite claiming to be influenced by Radiohead, The Little Kicks still manage to make upbeat disco-rock. Lead singers Steven’s voice does emcompass Thom Yorke’s drawl, but he’s got a bit of Richard Ashcroft and Luke Pritchard to him too. Mixed with Smiths-like melodies it’s pretty fresh-sounding stuff. And their talents don’t end there; after a support slot on the Rakes’ 2006 tour, the Aberdeen boys even found time to run teir own club night, the Dirty Hearts Club, which runs in Aberdeen, every Thursday from 10pm.”

it was recorded over quite a bit of time, while falling in love with sounds from beautiful keyboards, ugly keyboards, old bass guitars and drums and whatever else was sitting around the room and in the computer. sometimes a sound wasn't any of those places. then we'd create it. that's more fun anyway. there's a beat made of a noisy chair and pixie noises that are really just the sound of an old very blue organ, artificial mice dancing on the table and playing percussion or other instruments in their own subtle way, and much much more."

Bridges and Powerlines - Ghost Types (2008)

"The members of Bridges and Powerlines met in New York City in late 2005. Geographically diverse in their upbringing, they had spent their formative years glued to nineties college radio. Drawing heavily from a set of musical heroes that included Guided by Voices and the wistful Elephant Six Collective, they worked to set themselves apart in the crowded NYC music scene.A debut EP followed shortly, bearing many stylistic references to the post-punk resurgence that gripped New York. Meeting with critical acclaim, the energetic record was described as "an exhilarating racket," (sixeyes) and "a taught example of why [bridges and powerlines] should be added to your list of bands to watch." (
The success of their EP attracted producer Chris Zane, who had helmed recent breakout records by Les Savy Fav, White Rabbits and Asobi Seksu. The band spent much of 2007 writing and recording and further developing their sound. The completed 11-song record is equal parts nineties-style indie-rock, psych-influenced harmony and analog synth intricacy." Myspace Relase "energetic, sharp indie rock songs." Washington Post

The Plastic Pals - Good Karma Café (2008)

Indie sueco cheio de estilo e referências 80's com algo de 60's. The Plastic Pals tem um pé no Television de Verlaine. Só que mais acelerado. Já "Good Karma Café" é um trabalho uniforme. Algumas faixas tem certo potencial para hits, como
"Here Comes The Sun". Mas, é em"Suicide Bomber" que a banda voa mais alto através do vocal demente e a quase psicodelia das guitarras.

My Name Is George adornes its vintage shake-your-ass rock with sweet background chanting, crazy synth sounds and roaring guitars, which all magically come together to create their typical, powerful sound. This debut album by one of Europes most promising upcoming bands is sure to make some waves and will leave nobody untouched. Bring on the summer... "

Kinski - Down Below It's Chaos (2007)

"I've heard just about everything that Kinski has released to date, and to my ears they've always seemed like one of those groups who is a couple good songs or a couple nice twists and turns from creating something that's stellar. They've been prolific, releasing an average of a full length a year since their debut came out in 2001 and they've put out a split release with the somewhat like-minded Acid Mothers Temple along the way. They've always flirted with some seriously head-tripping spaces on their releases, and for my money their best work is the excellent Airs Above Your Station (their debut for the Sub Pop label)."

"Red Light Company were formed in 2007. Richard Frenneaux (vocals/guitar) was born in England and spent his formative years in Australia and New Zealand. Shawn Day (bass) is from Wyoming, the least populated state in America, but was born in Osaka, Japan. James Griffiths (drums) is from Bridgend in Wales, Paul Mellon (guitar) is from Motherwell in Scotland and Chris Edmonds (keyboards) is from Maidenhead.
Richard and Shawn met on the Internet after Shawn saw an advert posted by Rich. It was Tuesday afternoon, the band had a gig in London on the Friday, Shawn heard future single Scheme Eugene and emailed Richard “I want to play my bass in London. I don't f*ck around.” Richard replied immediately and Shawn made immediate preparations to fly to London. Upon arrival, Shawn was unable to provide proof of sufficient funds for his intended length of stay in the UK and was detained for six hours at Gatwick. The immigration officer finally agreed for the band to meet with Shawn, specifying he catch the first flight back to America the following morning. Shawn adds “We all jumped into the van and had an unplugged audition and then onto the pub where Richard and I both agreed there would be no guitar solos. The next day I flew back to America. A long month passed in Wyoming, I sold everything I owned before my visa was finally approved and I returned to the U.K for round two.”

Mt Sims- Happily Ever After (2008)

"The dark side of danceable rock is the forte of Californian trio Mt. Sims . With a few club hits under their belts they continue their journey through the dirty alleys of indie rock, having been shown the way by such famous forefathers as the Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie, New Order and The Cure. Happily Ever After comes to you with cheerful tunes like Grave , The Bitten Bite Back and Tightrope . Main man Matt Sims has enough power in the lower register of his vocal capabilities to cast a shadow over his fans. No wonder that he moved to Berlin, a city that evokes death, dance and decadence."

The Subs - The Subculture (2008)

"The Subs are Jeroen De Pessemier aka Papillon (singer/producer), Wiebe Loccufier aka Tonic (half of dj-duo Starski & Tonic, heirs to the Culture Club-throne, as they took over the residency spot at the infamous Ghent club from 2 ManyDJs and The Glimmers) and Stefan Bracke aka l’entrepreneur (splits his time between deejaying with The Subs and fronting his raverockband Foxylane).
The past months, The Subs have enthralled audiences with a live show comprising of a unique set up: 2 deejays and a man behind the microphone/synth. No hiding behind laptops - The Subs take the sweaty punktrashfeel to the dance stage - they work those machines! With gigs at Dour Festival (B), Pukkelpop (B), Social Club (Paris), Razzmatazz (Barcelona), Fabric (LDN) and Club Low (Madrid) having secured the band's live reputation, this Fall sees The Subs dropping their hotly anticipated debut album.
The Subs are not your average 'let's mess around with some analogue machines' band. They fought with the machines until a consistent album, a true body of work, came about. Papillon being the songwriter-half bred on landmark nineties dance-albums from the likes of Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers and Underworld, and Tonic being the dj/producer with a passion for brand new underground releases and innovative sounds, The Subs had made an album with songs lurking underneath the sounds. (There's even a mellotron on the album - we kid you not, the retrofuturistic instrument the Beatles used on 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds'!)
'Subculture' is a dance album that you can listen to in your car. In your living room. In your bed room. Anywhere. The mood is intense and brooding. It's a down-right dirty stunner with both euphoric peaks and melancholy-melodic moments."

The Weeks - Comeback Cadillac (2008)

"The Weeks, out of Mississippi, aren’t your father’s southern rock band. You can catch bits of boogie, shards of blues-y vamps in the corners of this hard-charging debut, but infused with a desperate, angsty energy that’s almost punk. Consider the title track, track, a staccato barrage of shouts and dual guitar riffs. There’s a manic, terrified edge to singer Cyle Barnes’ voice, as he yelps and sprays the words, a wreckless surge forward in the drums battered about by his brother Cain Barnes. Guitar riffs start and kickback like machine guns, two of them, locked in combat (Sammy D on lead, Chaz Lindsay on rhythm). It’s an impressive show of force, and when the whole thing judders to a halt with the observation “Girl she was gone and my heart stopped beating,” you feel like you’ve been through a wringer.
The tension abates considerably in the ballads—“Teary Eyed Woman” and “Dog Days”—where Barnes chews and slurs the words until he begins to sound like Adam Durwitz of the Counting Crows. But even sensitive songs can catch fire, as when “Buttons”’s refrain of “I shake, I shake, I can never see, how good young love can be,” blossoms from a confession to a thundering rock chorus. The first half of the record is better than the second, with a good deal of meandering near the end. But it’s hard to resist the crowd-rallying swagger of “The House That We Grew Up In” with its chorus “Oh-oh, let the band play.” Who’s going to stop them anyway?"

Monsieur Minimal - Lollipop (2008)

"The phenomenal success of his music has taken over many underground and mainstream radio stations in Greece. He participated in the City Campers project with 5 songs, 4 of which became major radio hits. He has performed live in numerous venues all over Greece and was a headliner in European Music Day 2008 and a finalist in Coca-Cola Soundwave 2007.

Karmadeva - Disgrace (2008)

"Spearheaded by the superb vocals of lead singer Jane Stanness. The band create an innovative sound which is both exciting and instantly appreciable. Jane's stage presence is matched by her hauntingly graceful voice and depth is provided by a mixture of subtle guitar licks and a tasteful rhythm section. Through a mixture of P. J. Harvey style vocals, interesting chord progressions and ghostly lead guitar fills, KarmaDeva are a unique band with a powerful sound and an array of eclectic songs with an unusually epic quality."
