Stockholm


Viagra Boys’ Sebastian Murphy dreams about everyone hating his guts. A lot. “I kept having this recurring nightmare where my mom was crying and my friends were all pissed off at me,” he recalls, almost reverently. The band’s latest, Welfare Jazz out last week doesn’t bargain with the anxiety in that defeated feeling, but rather …

When we last checked in on Viagra Boys we found Sebastian Murphy wreaking havoc on the town in a drunken stumble. And at the end of that ‘Ain’t Nice’ video, the first song from their upcoming Welfare Jazz album out 8 January, he passed out awaking in the 18th century surrounded by servants in powdered wigs. Now the …

Last week saw the joint release on Cardinal Fuzz and Little Cloud Records of the fifth album from Sweden’s finest purveyors of heavy drones, fuzzed nightmares and stökpsych, The Janitors. Noisolation Sessions Vol.1 is a testament of three months in disturbing times. In March 2020 The Janitors had their new Album written and studio time …

COMING atcha out of Stockholm, Marble Mammoth have an interesting thing goin’ on, mining in that space somewhere between harder edged psych and classic hard rock like Led Zep – with a line in big vocal uplift and dirty guitar solos.

15 years ago, a night of heavy drinking resulted in the formation of The Janitors – a creative project that has been the centre of founding members Jonas and Henrik’s lives ever since. Over that time five drummers, eight percussionists and three bass players have passed through The Janitors grinder. This has ultimately resulted in …

Conjuring heavy drones and sinister garage-psych freak-outs, Stockholm outfit The Janitors have been a formidable presence on the European underground since they formed way back in 2004. Channelling the free-wheeling spirit of Hawkwind with equal smatterings of Sabbath and Spacemen 3, the band are masters of taking hold of a gnarly fuzzed-out groove and beating …

Rocket Recordings have announced that they will be releasing a new single by the now infamous Goat on 25th May, ‘Let It Burn’. ‘Let it Burn’ was written specifically for the climatic scene in the short film Killing Gävle, directed by Joe Fletcher. The film is about famous Gävle Goat in Sweden which every year …

Sailing out of Stockholm on a tidal wave of reverb and feedback comes Medistation , a project from The Orange Revival’s Eric Strand which sounds like the best band you’ve never heard before and BSM is here to offer you a premiere of the new noise in the form of ‘Pool of Blood’ which features …
