    Apartment club pictures - the best of

    I've just put some of the best photos from the apartment club nights.

    Cosy Den back at Landet with Paddington DC!

    Yeah, Landet is starting to feel like home now.
    Not saying I'm planning to move back to Stockholm, but with venues, it's a lot easier there than here at the moment.
    Ask me about the release party for Days and you will see what I mean (but yes, it IS still happening!).

    Anyway - I hope everyone who came to Landet in July enjoyed the night, and that you'll come back on Monday the 29th of October for another couple of great gigs!

    The first artist confirmed is PADDINGTON DISTORTION COMBO!

    Calle Olsson (Bear Quartet, Paper, Fireside and more) has made distorted, melodic, repetitive and most of all beautiful music under that name since 1999.
    When PDC performs live, you never quite know what to expect - it's never the same from time to time.
    I'm looking forward to this a lot myself - I've seen PDC live six or seven times but it was a while ago now, and it's always been brilliant in different ways.
    The first time I saw a PDC show was at Osaka vs Tokyo, in the tiny cellar of Läckerbiten. I was there because I'd just fallen madly in love with the Bear Quartet. I had no idea what to expect, but after two or three songs, I was dancing as if I was in heaven. I bought a copy of the current limited-to-ten-copies release, rushed over to Zombie Bar where Mats and Victoria were spinning records this Tuesday, told them they had to put on The sun is down and the sky is grey. When they kindly did so, I sat there, as close to the speakers as possible, with my beer. And I felt alive.

    There are so many, but here are a few of my favourite PDC songs for your listening pleasure:

    I like the weak ones, I like the sad ones (from Hoppfull musik för hopplösa människor, 2001)
    They talk talk talk (from Hoppfull musik för hopplösa människor, 2001)
    Clean sound suckers (from Songs in D-struction, 2001)
    Put things (from Songs in D-struction, 2001)
    The sun is down and the sky is grey (from the live session at P3 Pop, 2004)
    For 5 seconds I felt loved (from Please don't confront me with my failures, I have not forgotten them, 2004)
    Keep it sharp, let it slip (from Please don't confront me with my failures, I have not forgotten them, 2004)
    All hope is gone (from The sun is down and the sky is grey, 2005)
    Oh no/oh yes (from The sun is down and the sky is grey, 2005)

    New artist on Cosy Recordings: ELENETTE!

    I'm very proud to announce that Elenette, the incredible four-piece from Stockholm that combine synth pop with saxophones and intelligent lyrics (how often does that happen, huh?), will release an EP on Cosy Recordings pretty soon - hopefully in November!
    In addition to the myspace link - you'll find more info, a couple of free mp3's and lyrics here!

    Let's have a picture of the band celebrating the deal:

    Unfortunately, you won't get to see me jumping around in the living room, but I am!
