Priest

“Emotion” MP3 Stream

Apr 01, 2015

Samaris

“Lífsins ólgudub” MP3 Stream

Mar 30, 2015

Samaris’ new single “Lífsins ólgudub” is a haunting piece of ambient pop, featuring a wash of drums and uniquely tuned synths. But to call it “new” may be a bit of a misnomer. The track hails from the band’s forthcoming album Silkidrangar Sessions, an offering which sees the Icelandic group rework tracks from their previous album Silkidrangar to include ambient and dub elements. Listen below. Silkidranger Sessions streets May 25 on One Little Indian.

The sounds are brought to you by hip-hop artist and Tallinn Music week participant Deech. If this doesn’t get you moving, you’re even more jetlagged than we are. Listen below.

Polkov

Premiere: Polkov Mixtape (Tallinn Music Week Edition)

Mar 27, 2015

Austrian band Polkov deals in glam—so it makes sense that their Tallinn Music Week inspired mixtape would feature the likes of Queen, Madonna, and Echo and the Bunnymen.

“Due to our time's aspiration for omnipresent supervision and because of the restrictive politics in our hometown Graz, we once played a live set made up entirely of cover songs from the year 1984,” the band explains. “This mixtape is more or less the recreation of the setlist.”

Jennie Abrahamson

Premiere: Jennie Abrahamson Mixtape (Tallinn Music Week Edition)

Mar 26, 2015

In honor of her upcoming Tallinn Music Week performance, Swedish singer/songwriter Jennie Abrahamson made us a mixtape celebrating her country. She calls it, appropately enough, Swedish Awesomeness.

“I'm often asked what it's like to be an artist from Sweden, and especially Stockholm, and be part of the incredibly strong pop scene we have here,” says Abrahamson of her mixtape. “The answer is yes—Sweden's small and all that, and there's killer competition, but all the fantastic music that's being made around me is more than anything an incredible source of inspiration. I have such gifted friends and colleagues, and for that I'm forever grateful. I could've easily compiled a list of 100 favorite songs, but I narrowed it down and chose a bunch that I thought would go well together. Some old, some new. Some artists well-known outside of Sweden, some not so much. They're all great. Deportees, Nina K and Ane Brun have new and great albums coming out this year, look out for that! Amason, Winhill/Losehill and Linnea Olsson just released new material. And yeah, I threw one of mine in there too—“Entity”—the unofficial title track of my upcoming album Gemini Gemini. Hope you'll enjoy this list!
