Sultry and sexy throwback to El Perro Del Mar. El Perro Del Mar’s sings the sweet sadness of love and live through beautifully vocals and melancholy lyrics. Other than Lykke Li, I can’t think of anyone else how has mastered this so gracefully. Check her out!

Asha Ali – Stop Talking
I thought I had featured this a few months back, but I guess I was wrong and I wish I would have posted this sooner because I love it. Asha Ali simple catchy lyrics with a lovely beat. She makes sexual demands sound so sweet, cute and pretty.
Sea Lion – Sanna’s Song
It’s like Mazzy Star met the Cranes and replaced Hope Sandoval with Alison Shaw and out of it came Sea Lion. From Göteborg, Sea Lion is a band I know a lot of my friends would enjoy. When I found them, it was like I had found my lost treasure. I’m mesmerized by Linn Osterberg’s voice. It’s absolutely beautiful and the melodies is simply divine. I also can’t put into words how great her covers are. It’s like you’re listening to a totally different song. When everyone’s raving about First Aid Kit, they need to give Sea Lion some attention! I love this!
Maasai – Forgive Me
Electro pop duo from Stockholm, Maasai is something you need to hear. Beautiful, dream whispery vocals combined with a lovely electro beat make this song hard to not like. Maasai is on their way to joining the rest of the Electro-pop greats out of Sweden.
Lady Banana – Wall of Cheese
A wall of cheese sounds rather delightful, and so does the song. I still don’t get why this song is called Wall of Cheese, but this is upbeat, rocky and great garage rock. Of course, this indie greatness comes out of Göteborg. As the end of the song says, I can listen to this “Again and again and again.”
Hey Elbow – Blanca
I love the dynamic sound of this song. Dreamy vocals combined with an eerie, echoing melody make this song close to perfection. Released back and May, Blanca is the debut single from Malmö’s Hey Elbow. It’s hard to believe that sound is coming from just three people. I will anticipate their full album release set to come out sometime this summer. It’s been a while since a band has gotten me this excited to hear more!
Robyn and Röyksopp – Do It Again
It’s Friday, we’ve made it through another week and it’s time to celebrate the weekend! What better way to start than with a dancey Robyn and Röyksopp song that features an uprising within in the video?
Mando Diao – Long Before Rock and Roll
Throwback Thursday again, and today to a band that I always seem to forget that they are Swedish. This could possibly because they sound like they come straight out of the U.K. But nope they are Swedish. Their sound blends elements of rock, brit pop, soul, garage rock and pop to create something great and fun. Their sassiness makes me want to dance.
Museum of Bellas Artes – Abyss
Yesterday, I posted the side project of Leo and Alice so I might as well feature the actual band they came from since their recently released a video from their single “Abyss” released last year.
Lucid Dream – Hitting Heads
I had a little technical difficulties yesterday, but now I’m back…
Mysterious and beautiful, Lucid Dream is a can’t miss side project comprised Leo and Alice from Museum Of Bellas Artes.
Hitting Heads is the final song from their EP “Nonsense” released earlier this year. Consisting of breathy vocals and hypnotic melodies the beauty of the song leaves you in a dreamy state on this wonderful Monday morning. Now that I’ve listened to the EP, I am craving much more from this band. Love it!
