May 4th is no longer far away, which means Mumford and Sons‘ upcoming album soon will be in our hands. This is their third studio album and will go under the name ‘Wilder Minds’. For the eager ones it’s possible to pre-order your album on their website.
So far, three singles have been released from the album. Have a listen to them below.
The British indie rock band ‘The Cribs’ just released their fifth album. The band was formed in late 2001 as a recording project by the three brothers that the band consists of. On March 20th the album ‘To all my sisters’ became available on Spotify. Have a listen to it and let us know what you think!
The Swedish duo Daniel Johansson and Joakim Sveningsson aka ‘Friska Viljor’ are back with the new single ‘In my sofa I’m safe’. The single was released on March 6th and totally lived up to my expectations. The duo is currently working on their sixth album and have been very generous to share some videos from the working progress of it. Watch them below.
And don’t forget to listen to the catchy, fresh single!
‘The Amazing’ is a Swedish band with a genre hard to describe in regular words. According to their own Facebook description, they describe the genre simply as ‘Music’. Probably a reasonable way to put it.
The band just released their third album ‘Picture You’ on February 16th. Listen to it here.
The Swedish singer and performance artist Ida Long just released her mini album ‘Ida Long vs. Mintelligence’. This is one album out of her two that will be released this year. Next album will be out in September in form of a full lenght album to look forward to.
We had a nice chat with a great duo from Åtvidaberg/Linköping the other day. They go by the name of Garden, they’re new to Emues and they told us about their new EP Framed that is truly amazing. Check out the interview below!
Who are Garden and when did they see the daylight?
Garden. is a duo consisting of Julius Norrbom and Joakim Andersson. We’ve been making music together and been friends since 2012.
Can you explain your process of making music?
We often improvize. For the most part Joakim starts laying down a guitar phrase and we just keep adding our elements of choice. I’ll try out some vocal ideas or pre-written texts on top of it. The core of a track is almost always finished in a night and then we tear our hair out over it for a few weeks.
What inspires you?
Feelings in general.
Are there any particular artists that have influenced Garden?
I’d say that we cover most of the musical trenches between us. Everything from Lightnin’ Hopkins and Moderat to Aesop Rock. I think It’s hard to specify your influences, but of course stuff you listen to finds its way into your own music. I listen to a lot of upcoming Swedish artists right now like Alice Boman, maybe you’ll be able to hear that in our future songs, maybe not.
Since we made our first song Another Face together we felt an urge to make something more cohesive. Then Joakim abandoned me for a year and ran away to Vancouver so the work pace slowed down a bit. We finished the song Framed over the Internet, emailing tweaks to each-other every other day while he was staying on the other side of the pond. As soon as he got back this summer we finished the other three songs on the EP and just released it. We’ve done exactly everything on this release by ourselves just to see if we could.
Do you have any final shout outs you would like to share with us?
Never trust a man in a hat.
