The Emues Crew comes across a lot of cool music and we are happy to have the chance to feature some of the greatest, coolest and/or newest on our blog.

PAL is a band from Southern Sweden. They describe their music as minimalistic and mellow pop. PAL started out as a soloproject with Albin Johansson in 2007, but has grown a lot since then and now features Cristoffer Csanady and Adam Hjertström. Almost exactly a year ago, PAL released their debut album called Weeks.

Recently, PAL held a live-session at Studio Möllan in Malmö, Sweden, which was recorded by Karl-Johan Hjertstrom. We are glad to feature this new video of PAL’s new song Paperback. 


Be sure to check out PAL’s profile on Emues.com and suggest a gig with them. And Follow PAL on Twitter and on Facebook.


At EMUES we believe that music can change lives. And luckily, we’re not the only ones!

Today, December 1st, 2012, it is WORLD AIDS DAY. We want to join the international community to raise awareness of AIDS and join the movement to end mother-to-child transmission of AIDS by 2015. Today 900 babies are born with HIV every day. In 3 years that could be zero.

This year some of the world’s best Dance artists are joining forces with (RED) to raise money and awareness on WORLD AIDS DAY at Stereosonic 2012 Melbourne. Check out the party (they’re streaming the whole event live!):

Support (RED)!

2. When and how did Funked Up start?

Funked Up was created during the summer of 2008 after a day of riding BMX in our home town Abbekås, when Charlie asked Mårten if he wanted to play some covers. The same summer, Dennis broke Pelle’s leg after many intense games on Abbekås soccer field, which put Pelle in a wheelchair, where he gained an interest in playing the bass. Charlie, Mårten and Pelle started to play together, but were missing a drummer.

After using a drum machine on a keyboard for some time, the three of them asked Charlie’s brother Dennis if he would like to become their drummer.  Dennis, who had never touched a drum set, learned incredibly fast. And that’s how it all started.

The crowd has made their voice heard!

Through Emues, the people have booked two concerts at the one week, event-packed Malmö Festival in Sweden, the largest festival in Scandinavia, with over one million visitors.

800 people had to participate to be sure that the bands they wanted to hear and see on stage, would be booked. Now whether you were a part of booking or not, make your way down to see them on one of the large scenes on Gustav Adolfs Torg in Malmö tomorrow (FYI this breathtaking event is for free).

People say there’s always a first time for everything.
With EMUES, last week, there was a first time for 2 things: the first EXPIRED gig and the first SOLD OUT gig.

The suggestion was up to see Crying Day Care Choir and Frantic Sunday and the amazing people at Rockfoto got onboard and would also put up an awesome exhibition together with the gig, all at STPLN.
Tomas, from Frantic Sunday, invited everybody to get together and make it happen and by the deadline, unfortunately, not enough tickets got sold. Because of that, there will be no gig for them or exhibtion.
