The Chariot (US)

The Chariot were an American mathcore band from Douglasville, Georgia. The last lineup consisted of drummer David Kennedy, vocalist and bandleader Josh Scogin, and guitarists Brandon Henderson and Stephen Harrison. The band experienced frequent lineup changes since its inception, with Scogin being the only original member. The band played an abrasive style of hardcore that does not adhere to typical stylings such as melodic/abrasive dynamics and harmonic vocals. They built a reputation around their powerful live performances, with Scogin's lyrics covering topics like materialism, personal struggle, current events, politics, and Christian themes. Their music was critically acclaimed as something "that will melt your face and leave you wan...

Jonathan Johansson

Just a few years ago, the term Swedish pop was more or less synonymous with the 1960s: chipper hooks, throwback arrangements, turtlenecks, and soft-focus album covers. But in a very short time, the country's indie output-- at least as perceived from these shores-- seems to have advanced two decades, with acts like the Legends and Pacific! finding inspiration in the sounds of the early 1980s. In this regard, Jonathan Johansson is a new romantic, but not necessarily a New Romantic. He doesn't dress outlandishly or portray himself as particularly androgynous, but that label (those two words divorced of their pop-historical meaning) nicely sum up the bruised emotionalism and chilly synthcraft of his Swedish-language debut, En hand i himlen (...

Immanu El

Immanu El (often typeset as IMMANU EL) is a Swedish post-rock band from Jönköping.

Formed by Claes Strängberg and his brother Per in 2004, Immanu El was joined by Michael Persson and Emil Karlsson soonafter where they began to work on their first release.

The band name, Immanu El, is a play on words (of sorts) on the Hebrew Bible's prophecy of Immanuel, the prophesied Messiah, and the Semetic word for God, El (deity), and "with us" (Immanu). The band's name takes on even deeper meaning in light of the Judeo-Christian philosophies of Jesus being simultaneously the Jewish Messiah and God in one.

After touring, supporting such bands as Logh and Loney, Dear they got the chance in 2005 to play a set on the 'Ro...

Rue Royale (UK)

Having clocked up 100,000 miles on the road, Rue Royale are temporarily putting down roots to record their eagerly anticipated third album.

The driven duo have ushered numerous tour vehicles into retirement since beginning their global adventure.

Three years after they married, in 2006 Ruth and Brookln Dekker started making music together in their then home city of Chicago, inspired by the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Radiohead, Grandaddy, John Martyn, Jose Gonzalez and Elbow.

The Anglo-American outfit earned their stripes on the Chicago music scene before selling most of their belongings and boarding a plane for Europe, armed with their instruments and self-titled 2008 debut LP, for their first out-of-town to...

Loney Dear

Loney Dear is the moniker currently used by multi-instrumentalist and home-recording phenomenon, Emil Svanängen from Jönköping, Sweden.

Until 2009, Svanängen recorded and released four records as Loney, dear. In 2009 he slightly changed this name, skipping the comma in Loney, dear. He is now recording and releasing music as Loney Dear. Both names exist on, so (for as long as the two are not merged) please try to get this right: it differs per album!

Loney Dear is the correct moniker for the following albums:
Dear John (2009)
Hall Music (2011)

The The Year Of River Fontana (2003), Citadel Band (2004), Sologne (2006)
and Loney, Noir (2007) albums were recorded and released as Loney...
