Stranded Mermaid -No Bloodshed Allowed

One of my favorite bands of 2014 has already released something amazing two months into the year. With a slightly heavier beat but still embracing us with a hauntingly beautiful melody and melodic vocals to deliver a powerful message through deep lyrics. I wish I could have been an extra for this spectacularly eerie video. I may just have to find a forest to frolic in while listening to their music.

Last Lynx – Brother

With their upcoming EP release on Friday, Last Lynx is shot out a poppy dance tunes for your to bop to.  So hurry up Friday “cause I don’t want to wait much longer.”  Like the entrancing “Curtains” this song pulls you in and makes you crave more.  

Nina Persson – Clip Your Wings

Most of you know my obsession with Lykke Li and my connection to her music.  But before Lykke came Nina Persson, whose music has healed many broken hearts and gotten me through, for lack of a better word, a lot of shit.  Tonight, I am seeing her again and I couldn’t be more excited.

Over the years, through the Cardigans, A Camp and her recent solo album she has touched me with her lyrics and music.  Below is “Clip Your Wings,” my current favorite song by her.  This song holds more meaning to me than anyone could imagine.  I probably listen to it and sing it loudly on a daily basis. Her lyrics are always full of so much heart and realism. My best friend always reminds me that in relationships you always need to follow the rule that no matter what, if that person were to go away, that deep down you know you’ll be okay.  This song is the epitome of that.  So listen, read the lyrics, watch the bird fly and lastly enjoy.

And if you don’t get your fix or you just simply want to hear more, click here for more Nina in my ode to her that I wrote a few months back.

Summer In Our Hearts

With Summer coming to an end (unless you’re in Southern California), I have created a special playlist to feature some of my favorite songs.  I’m hoping that with this list you can keep summer going in your heart and will warm you in the fall and winter months ahead.  Also, it features some songs by artists on this site that have I have not posted on the blog.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I have over the past few days as it’s gone through many changes just within the last hour.   See this as a Thank You for all my followers new and old.  You guys have sure made me feel special the past few days.

 

 

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

All it took was someone to light a little fire under my ass to make me want to bring you guys a better blog and an easier way to enjoy the music that I love and hold dear to my heart.  I dedicate hours of my time to bringing out what I feel is some of the best music in the world.  This blog is my heart, my soul, this “music is my boyfriend”(To quote CSS from Brazil).  I will continue to devote hours to bring you sweet sounds for all your pretty ears.

As you seen yesterday, I now have a Spotify account dedicated strictly to Swedes are Sweet.  The playlists are divided into each month.  I also realized not everyone has access to Spotify and you have to sign up to listen.  So I have created a Souncloud account that will have playlists for you to access without having to sign up for their website.  The playlists are not completed yet, but I will have them done soon. Please enjoy by clicking the link below.

Swedes Are Sweet’s Soundcloud

Swedes are Sweet Has It’s Own Spotify Account

Last week, I quickly scrambled a playlist of songs on this site from my personal spotify account and I promised that I would soon have a break down of posts by month.  So as promised, I have started breaking down the playlists by month on Spotify.  It’s currently up to date and will be growing.  I will include the new songs as I add them to the blog.  That way if you want to listen to the music, you no longer need to head over to youtube and it’s all in one place.
