Jens Lekman

Jens Martin Lekman (born February 6, 1981 in Angered, Sweden) is a Swedish musician. He has released three albums and several EPs since 2003. His music can be described as guitar-based pop with heavy use of samples and strings, with lyrics that are often witty, romantic, and lachrymose. His work is often compared to that of Stephin Merritt of the The Magnetic Fields, Jonathan Richman and Morrissey.

Lekman recorded and released much of his material privately from 2000 to 2003 on CD-R. Because one of his songs during this time was entitled "Rocky Dennis' Farewell Song to the Blind Girl", Lekman was mistakenly referred to as Rocky Dennis for a while (the song was actually written from the perspective of the main character of the ...

Carbon Based Lifeforms

Carbon Based Lifeforms (also known as CBL) is an electronic music duo made up of Johannes Hedberg and Daniel Segerstad (born Ringström), both born in 1976 and based in Göteborg, Sweden. They met at the age of 15 and are still working together, almost 20 years later. CBL itself was formed in 1996, as an offshoot from other projects, but soon became their focal point, culminating in their first release on in 1998.

It is hard to categorise CBL’s music but the best description might be that of a groundbreaking mixture of acid, techno and trance music. The term acid/ambient has also been coined.

CBL signed with the celebrated Lyon-based Ultimae Records in 2002 and have since released five full-length albums (Hyd...

Solar Fields

Solar Fields is the electronic music project of Magnus Birgersson, a music composer and graphic designer from Sweden.

El Perro Del Mar

El Perro del Mar (The Sea Dog) is the nom de musique of Sarah Assbring, a Swedish pop thrush whose recordings are glorious aural confections that combine Brill Building pop and the influences of Brian Wilson, Burt Bacharach, and Smokey Robinson with lyrics that speak with a sweet, ineffable sadness of the pitfalls of love and life. According to Assbring, the name El Perro del Mar came to her during an ill-fated vacation in Spain; she was alone, depressed, and out of sorts when a stray dog came up to her while she sat on the beach, and the dog's efforts to bond with her inspired her to express her feelings through songwriting. Assbring began recording her new songs on her own, playing most of the instruments herself as well as singing, an...
