MP3: Pretties For You - Silver lining

Give me an epic indierock tune with expansive pop hooks and a masterful sense of dynamics and of course I'm going to be impressed. It's a formula that can be easily codified on paper, but that doesn't mean it's so easy to replicate, though plenty of Swedish artists -- Magnus ekelund, We Are the Storm, Pixie Carnation to name a few -- have definitely hit the mark at least once. Now add Pretties for You to the list; the title track of their new EP "Silver lining", just released today via , is a sure-fire qualifier. They take their time getting to the chorus payoff, but it's worth it.

Pretties For You - Silver lining

MP3: Magnus Ekelund & Stålet - Supernova

Infectious in the best possible way, not like a dreaded sommarplåga or a social disease. In fact, all three songs from the new single "Supernova", including brilliant b-side covers of Vapnet and Bingo, are phenomenal. Likewise, so is Magnus ekelund & Stålet's upcoming full-length "Det definitiva drevet". Same goes for labelmates Norra Kust, whose self-titled debut was just released today and is now on Spotify. Essential listening all around!

Magnus Ekelund & Stålet - Supernova

Top 10s for 2011: Mattias Alkberg

Musik med Mattias Alkberg and more

Live music at PSL with Mattias Alkberg and Magnus ekelund. Required viewing, 'natch. Also at PSL, a brief chat with José González about how he's working on his third solo record:

Mattias Alkberg - Asterism & obelisk (video)

Shaky and low-budget, but I'm not one to complain. Charm comes in many forms and I appreciate the casual footage of Luleå, as captured by Magnus ekelund (the man behind the camera).

Magnus Ekelund + Jakob Hellman - Utan er (new live video)

Magnus ekelund and Jakob Hellman performing live together in Stockholm. And guess what? Magnus' new album "Svart flagg" (out now via ) is even available via Spotify here in the US:

MP3: Magnus Ekelund & Stålet - Utan er

It's Memorial Day here in the US and I don't have to do any "real" work so I'm not gonna spend any more time in front of the computer than I have to, but I am going to take the time to post a brand new single from ex-Elmo frontman Magnus ekelund recorded with new backing band Stålet along with a little help from once-reclusive Swedish pop icon Jakob Hellman. Yes, the news as reported back in February was true and now the final result is ready for release via , the label run by The Bells/Jonas Teglund, and will be followed by the full-length album "Svart flagg" ("Black flag") on July 6. The Swedish-literate can read more at Magnus' website, but I suggest just listening and letting the sound of his epic melancholy carry you away.

Magnus Ekelund & Stålet - Utan er (feat. Jakob Hellman)

Jakob Hellman + Magnus Ekelund = Utan er

Semi-reclusive Swedish music legend Jakob Hellman has recorded a new duet together with Magnus ekelund (ex-Elmo) this past weekend: (in Swedish)
The track is called "Utan er" and it will be featured on Magnus' upcoming solo debut "Svart flagg" which he is currently working on for release this spring. I do believe this is Jakob's first new recording since he guested on "Du min vän" from Nina Ramsby & Martin Hederos' 2006 album "Jazzen".
