Woods End – Firewood Woods End got in touch with us and I’m glad they did.This is superb.I adore the album cover too. I asked the guys for some words on it Well, the track is a slower, heavier tune inspired by 16 Horsepower, depicting the struggle of keeping warm during the long winters of…

Holy Now Batman

Broken Swans – You Don’t Like Me Anymore

Broken Swans – You Don’t Like Me Anymore A lo-fi pop man says “You Don’t Like Me Anymore”. Nothing could be further from the truth, in fact, we get fonder of him by the tune. Here’s another downbeat, very humorous song from Broken Swans. You know what they say, the best humour is based on…

I’l gladly pay you Tuesday for The Bergh you give me today

The Bergh – Underground This arrived on our desk first thing this AM from David Palmberg. He told us The Bergh is a collective of musicians playing psychstonerpunkrockish stuff – Members of this band are part of other Swedish bands such as The Sensitives, King Albatross, NORAK, Chikan and many more and now they’ve all…

Frighteningly good – A Choir of Ghosts

A Choir Of Ghosts – Morning Light If Christian Müller is going to celebrate then SWIT’s going to celebrate with him. He shared this new single from A Choir of Ghosts. This is normally more Tom’s bag but maybe I’m just caught up in the whole 1st Dec thing. Whatever it is it’s a really…

There should be a cereal called No Suits In Miami

No Suits In Miami – Capo 4 I’d find it hard to define my perfect song, luckily now I don’t have to as Lund’s No Suits In Miami have done it for me. Capo 4 has it all, echoing, fuzzy, lo-fi production, jangling guitars, wistfulness and longing. This is a love song for bedsit romantics,…

I’m singing in the Rain On Monday

Rain on Monday – Hiding Places Love, heartbreak, incomprehension, desertion, sounds bad, doesn’t it? Well, it’s all here in “Hiding Places” by Sweden’s Rain on Monday and in fact what you get is a rather gorgeous electro/folk/country/pop tune with magnificently weathered vocals by Raimond Nurmilampi.

Autodromo – Whistle Well things have been quiet at SSSH! recently but not anymore. Sweden’s Autodromo got in touch to tell us they were new, from Lund and write Dream-Pop tunes.

SWIT’s Long Player Of The Week: Okay by Wy

Wy – Okay (Hybris/Better Call Rob) First thing first, “Okay” by Wy is a fantastic record. Not that that should surprise anyone, we’ve been following Wy since the release of “In Bloom” back in May 2016. The tremendous promise we heard then has been more than fulfilled. The singles from “Okay” telegraphed that something special…

Broken Swans have some neck.

Broken Swans – – Sleep All Day Broken Swans are based in Oslo, just about. “Sleep All Day” is their (his) new release on Sotron Records. It’s a charmingly pessimistic, ramshackle affair, it’s so lo-fi it’s lo-lo-fi. It’s almost a song, you could say like the wireframe for a website. I love it. Or sorta…
