NEW MUSIC: Highly Suspect – Lydia

“I’ve seen better days” sings, snarls and moans Johnny Stevens of Highly Suspect and listening to Lydia, their newly re-recorded song, I believe it on the spot. “So unafraid in my youth / I cant breath much less believe” he continues, and the song just gets tighter and more intense[…]

NEW ALBUM: The Elwins – Play For Keeps

When listening to new albums, I often don’t start at the beginning but jump to song number three or scan the titles to see what takes my fancy. And so, when listening to The Elwins’ just released album Play For Keeps,  I was drawn to So Down Low and liked the playful[…]

THROWBACK: Howard Jones – What Is Love

In preparation for this segment, I find myself doing exactly what I’ve been doing 32 years ago: listening to What Is Love on repeat. For the fourth time by now, to be precise. For me, it has not lost it’s luster and the theme of the song is timeless anyway. We[…]

FIRST LISTEN: Sea Change – Breakage

If you know that Ellen Sundes, who records as Sea Change, is from Norway, you might have a good idea what her music is like and your guess is probably not too far off. Still, Sea Change’s debut album Breakage is the best I’ve heard from Scandinavian electro pop in[…]
