    · By Mattias Forsgren

    Sweden's electro queen EMMON, aka Emma Nylén, returned to the Electronic Body Music Scene after a 5 year long break in 2019.

To take another perspective and dare to challenge oneself on a personal level in order to do something about one's own little bubble.""Purebloods" is an unyielding EBM-track, with...

    · By Mattias Forsgren

    "Ray-Bans" by PAPA SOUND & Shvmpoo is a mid-tempo summer pop track, musically influenced by contemporary dancehall, pop, and afrobeat. The lyrics talk about the first sight of a person who catches your eye and that lovely impact it has on us.

    · By Mattias Forsgren

    Gothenburg-based Internet Friends bounce into the fold on their twisted new single “Rice Krispies” — the latest release from Swedish boutique label Icons Creating Evil Art (Baby Strange, Lazy Queen). Kicking off with distorted electronics, “Rice Krispies'' reveals itself to be dark and subversive from the get-go. Outlandish lyrics like “Rice Krispies in the morning, nice tripsies all night” and “snap neck, crack smoke, pop your eyesies'' are delivered in Sprechgesang-like patter as the track thunders through bass-heavy impenetrable riffs. “Rice Krispies'' is just a taste of the ferocious new work from Internet Friends.  Last year, Fredrik Soila, Jakob Falkendal and Noel Hassling-Offrell as Internet Friends, released the “Nosebleeds” EP - the follow...

    · By Mattias Forsgren

    Today, Friday 13th May, Noir-Americana starlet Lera Lynn with Icons Creating Evil Art releases the title track from her forthcoming album Something More Than Love. Lynn blurs the boundaries between genres, carving out a sound inspired by art-pop, indie-folk and the outer edges of American roots music. She’s a singer. She’s a songwriter. She’s a road warrior. She’s a multi-instrumentalist and producer. She’s a mother.  Texas born, Nashville resident Lera Lynn is just as comfortable creating an album entirely by herself, as she is collaborating with her heroes. In 2018, she worked with T Bone Burnett and Rosanne Cash on tracks that...
