Can't believe I never heard anything by Cardiacs until 27 January this year.

Cute Boy (Not a member of the band, though, not sure who he is), Awesome songs. Swedish Band.

My love for Scandinavian music continues with the new band I've discovered (and spreading around like Wildfire. I've got about 5 or 6 people into this album since I discovered it.)
I'd pretty much describe it as... Swedish Nintendo ElectroPop. Just a fantastic album. Excellent sampling.
Also, It's entirely Instrumental.

Slagsmålsklubbin - Boss For Leader (iTunes Link)
Image

"Hänt" – 4:06 (Happened)
"Sponsored by Destiny" – 6:01
"Speedboats" – 3:55
"The World Welcomes Fame" – 5:29
"Malmö Beach Night Party" – 4:06
"Dysparennia" – 3:52
"Spanska förhoppningar" – 3:14 (Spanish Expectations)
"Han som tuggar med öppen mun dör" – 4:50 (He Who Chews with His Mouth Open Dies)
"Borg of Hate" – 5:45 (Castle of Hate)
"Pälsmästaren" – 13:38 (The Fur Master)
"Vidrige ajjabajja" – 2:55 (Repulsing Ajjabajja; special edition bonus track)

Some Samples.

Hånt


Sponsored by Destiny
This clip is not official, It was done by someone doing a school project, The clip format is based from Röyksopp's Remind Me.


Han Som Tuggar Med Öppen Mun Dör (another unofficial clip)


Finally, Borg of Hate. I love this song so much (Though I love all the ones I've posted thus far)


If you're like me, You'll love all of this and see the reasoning behind calling it "Nintendo ElectroPop"

Cheers.
Brendan

Well I must say that this is a very dull period in current music, the last good song released of late being "Save Me San Fransisco" by Train.

Thank God for my own GOOD music collection...

Not a huge fan of the song, but an interesting use of the animation of playing cards to represent the 1-2. 1-2-3-4. beat. Quite enthused by that actually.

Music update post to commence shortly.

Continuing with my love for Scandinavian Music, from previous post back in February, I have another relatively old album to promote.

This is actually a relatively old album (2008) but it's definitely a great album. Andreas Kleerup, known best as just 'Kleerup' has worked with a few artists, including Robyn and has been featured on a few Ministry of Sound releases. This album is very much electropop but is much more relaxed and almost melancholy. It's a fantastic 'sitting in the dark' album when you want something with a bit of an edge but not too sharp as to inhibit a peaceful lounge-about.

Andreas Kleerup - Kleerup (iTunes Link)
Image

1 Hero
2 Until We Bleed
3 Thank You for Nothing
4 With Every Heartbeat (Ft. Robyn)
5 Longing for Lullabies
7 On My Own Again
8 Iris
9 3am
10 Ain't No Stopping
11 Misery
12 History
13 The End
14 I Just Want to Make That Sad Boy Smile
15 Chords
16 Forever


-Samples->
(Clips 1 and 4 are Fanmade)

Hero


With Every Heartbeat


Longing for lullabies


I just want to make that sad boy smile


Definitely an addition if you're into Cruisey lounge music.

Cheers.
Brendan

Next I think I'll do Vanbot, another Swedish artist.

If I can be bothered, I'll give Vanbot a pass (or include it) and skip to one that iTunes suggested me when looking at something by Grafton Primary.

Metronomy - I'd never even heard of them before but gave the album a preview.
This is my favorite song from the entire album, but this clip below, doesn't have the full Intro, which is probably my favorite part of the song.


I might do the rest of the album as a proper review later.

Yaaaay. Please tell me that was influenced by my previews.

I've gotta do a new one later. I've been throwing away money on iTunes on stuff I listen to once.

If I remember, I'll do a post of my latest album later this morning after I come home from the morning shift.

From Start to Finish, It's a great album. I spend way too much money on music though, but this is really worth it.
