    COSY011: Little Big Adventure "Saltsjö-Duvnäs" (plus info on The Budgies and The Garlands)

    Cosy Recordings are proud to announce that it will release LITTLE BIG ADVENTURE's song "Saltsjö-Duvnäs" as a single! It is a cover of the fantastic tune by Erik Halldén, and will be backed by another cover version, of Broder Daniel's early classic "Son of St Jacobs".

    The single will be available in 100 copies only, so make sure to order your copy now! The price is 25 SEK plus shipping. Send an e-mail to popen_maste_do (at) hotmail.com and you will recieve payment instructions. Distribution details will be revealed shortly.

    Lisa Persson has made some excellent artwork, and here is what the front cover will look like:

    You can expect to have your first chance to buy this release on the 26th!

    That will probably also be the case with the EP from The Garlands and the album from The Budgies!
    As soon as the fronts for their sleeves are ready, we will show them here, along with a presentation of the bands.

    Interview with Dickon from Nöjesguiden, before the Landet gig

    The interview is rather short so I might as well quote all of it here.
    If you don't read Swedish, the only thing you really need to know is that Dickon likes to give people a reason to dress up.
    I certainly will.


    Martina Lowdens favoritband Fosca kommer till Landet när klubbarna Cosy den och Bring all your friends samarbetar. Sångaren och gitarristen Dickon Edwards svarade på några frågor.
    Fosca gör en hel del hårda uttalanden på nya skivan. Eller muckar ni gräl?
    — Jag fattar inte poängen med att ta fram sin penna, eller att gå fram till mikrofonen om du inte har något intressant att säga.
    Du kommer inte att dj:a lite efter Landet-spelningen?
    — Allt man kan säga som dj är ”jag gillar den här skivan och jag vill tillfredsställa folk”. Vilket är gulligt, men inte min högsta mening med livet.
    Vill du att publiken ska klä upp sig för er spelning?
    — Det skulle vara trevligt, ja. Kläder är ett statement som vilket annat. Jag gillar att ge folk en anledning att klä upp sig.

    Forgot to say ta very much to Christian on here, for the brilliant flyer! And, having done that, I may as well thank Karin, Johan, Cecilia, Oscar and Pang for being lovely (I could go on). No records or club nights without people like you.

    Suburban Kids With Biblical Names and OSAKAvsTOKYO DJs to join the fun next Tuesday! + here be sleeves!

    Suburban Kids With Biblical Names are also playing next Tuesday!
    Peter and Johan have been working on new songs for quite a while now, and finally we'll get to hear some of them!
    They will also have a new live setting, and make full use of the space on the Landet stage, so this is definitely not one to miss!
    Judging by the current looks of the SKWBN website, they look up for it...

    And, I'm also happy to announce that DJs from OSAKAvsTOKYO, that's been one of the best indie nights in Stockholm for as long as I've been old enough to go to indie nights, will play their finest tunes for us all evening long!
    They will also be assisted by Miriam Pemberton (picking her very best 7" singles) and Vargen (possibly putting on twee from India)!


    Here are the sleeves for cosy009 and cosy010!
