Lykke Li

Yet another scandinavian artist! Lykke Li (pronounced Licky Lee) is a woman from stockholm who plays soulful electro pop and while its not fascinating, its nice enough. Although this is mostly because of her great voice. Her album "Youth Novels" has just been released and is produced by Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John fame. Shes playing quite a few festivals this summer and am hopefully gunna catch her at either Lovebox or Bestival. I saw her do a brilliant acoustic version of "im good, im gone" on the bbc glastonbury coverage but cant find it on youtube yet. So heres the video for "Little Bit" featuring the quality lyric "And for you I keep my legs apart, And forget it by my tainted heart"

Dj Mehdi - Signatune


For a minute then, I lost myself..

For all you CUNTS goin to see Radiohead on tuesday, it made me think of my one and (regrettably) only radiohead show ive seen, at Glastonbury 2003. It was easily the best gig ever. If you say you dont like radiohead you're either lying or a twat. Heres a few videos of that gig. I literally couldve picked any tunes but for "goosebump moments" chose Karma Police and Fake Plastic Trees.

You can download the set pretty easily and seriously, most of it is better than the recorded stuff, which is pretty fuckin rare..

Fuck Buttons

I downloaded the lp "street horrrsing" in some lame stoned attempt at being scene. This is possibly the worst album ive ever heard. Their Wikipedia says "they turn drone into melody" and for some reason, that still didnt put me off. people who listen to music like this are fucking wankers. Avoid 'dis!

Restlesslist are a brighton band who specialise in instruMENTAL electronica and they seem to rapidly been gaining an important fanbase. Nemone gave their single "Butlin Breaks" tune of the week on her BBC6Music show, and their album "Rise and fall of the curtain club" was given album of the week on Huw Stevens Radio1 show as well as playing a live session for Marc Riley. They have an ex member of Electric Soft Parade as a main founder and have already played with bands such as Battles and Mystery Jets. While not sounding too similar, they have a bit of a Lemon Jelly vibe going on and the album should be a great summer record. It was out last monday and you can buy it here (as if anyone does that anymore..) :

heres their extremely professional video for "Dirty Pint"

Those Dancing Days @ Audio

I dont know what it is with me and scandinavian bands at the moment, but i cant get enough! Those Dancing Days are 5 swedish teenagers, and although they arent as wet dream as that sounds, i did fall in love with the keyboard player. They play cutesy pop music with a northern soul edge to it and to be honest, its a load of fun. The gig itself was enjoyable enough, the crowd and the band all seemed to be having a good time but the thing is, these girls are only 18 and it showed sometimes. They werent very tight (hurhur) and there was a lot of filler songs. However, there definitely seems to be potential and i hotly tip them for big stuff. Heres the video for pop gem "Hitten" :
