Musik med Säkert! and more

PSL's newest correspondent does the live music thing for the video blog site with her band Säkert!: http://blogg.svt.se/psl/2012/09/20/musik-med-sakert-4/
Very recommended, naturally. Also at PSL today, a new video from Min Stora Sorg and another live session with De Montevert.

Grande Roses recording with Henrik Oja

Grande Roses went into the studio (Second Home?) with producer Henrik Oja (Säkert!) this past weekend to begin work on their debut full-length. Needless to say, I am greatly looking forward to the end result.

MP3: Säkert! - The flu

Having finally heard "Säkert! på engelska", it's no wonder that Annika Norlin was reluctant to translate her work to English. This is wordy, complicated stuff and while she did a more than admirable job making it work, it's still kinda messy at times, much like the emotional content of the material. Fitting, I suppose, though perhaps not quite as poetic as the original. Still, even less-than-stellar Annika is far, far better than most, whether it's with Säkert! or Hello Saferide or whatever else she sets her mind to, and I'm sure that all of us with lackluster Svenska skills are more than glad she took the time to bother.

Säkert! - Weak is the flesh

Expect the English version of "Facit" to be released this summer.
