Some Swedish stuff this month.
Q - starting with some old school style aj.
Rémy - more aj, from the nice (laid-back) album "First protocol - Incognito guitars". No stunners, no hits, just music.
Firefox - I'm not so sure about Keller's voice, but in a duet like this it is ok.
Maggio - I don't like that I like this...
Familjen - Swedish electronica with a real southern accent.
Tellier - the whole album "Sexuality" is good. French pop.
Reel - more aj, the retro sound suits me fine. It relaxes me hearing Omar on vocals; you don't need to worry about if he will hit that note, will there be wailing a la Stevie, will it sound like a set at old Bar Rhumba etc. It all of the above.
Phonique - with my current favourite Hunter...! Unexpected and good.
