Miike  snow is a band formed in Stockholm in 2007. The band members are Christian Karlsson and Pontus Winnberg. Before, they worked with artists such as Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Kelis and Britney Spears as producers and songwriters. The name “Miike Snow” comes from the Japanese film director Takashi Miike. What can I say? The band’s sound is hard to describe with words, it is easier to simply listen and draw your own conclusions. But beware! the songs of the band which has as its symbol a rabbit with antlers of moose can be highly addictive! See also Miike Snow’s >Lastfm

Sweden is a country that has always fascinated me. Before because of  his history, today  because of his crop of great music artists. I’ve discovered Robyn recently, despite the fact she already be in the “road” for a good time , and I can only ask for myself one thing; why I never heard about her before? For those who suffer from the famous Underground syndrome, just the fact of her being a pop singer can mean bad music. Pure nonsense. As she says: “I Like Music …. because it’s the way I want to express myself. It’s not a choice. It’s just always been there. It’s just what I do.” or in other words, Robyn gives us part of your soul with every song, you hardly get bored listening to her albums…See also Robyn’s >Lastfm

Chris Corner was a founding member of the band Sneaker Pimps and is now active with the IAMX solo project. I.AM.X attracts not only by the quality of sound and lyrics, but also by the visual and the eccentrically exotic choreography. Dramatic blend of the dark pop that began in 80’s. His lyrics deal with topics ranging from sex, drugs, religion and politics. Anyway, I.AM.X certainly will be remembered in future as a classic of underground music of our decade, a mirror that reflects a little bit of the nihilism present in this new generation.

Crystal Castles is a Canadian band that has an innovative style in the music scene. Consists in the multi-instrumentalist Ethan Kath and vocalist Alice Glass. His style is hard to describe (in my computer is in the “Electronic”, along with La Roux, Miike Snow, Röyksopp and so on.) The first impression I had from listen CC was of distrust, after all, the music seemed to be “all equal” and too much aggressive, as you can see in this show.
Of course, after listening more carefully, I could not take off the band of my playlist. Anyway, my role on this blog is to indicate what songs are worth to hear more between an album and another, taking into account not only my personal taste, but also by observing a general opinion on the internet. So, it’s the tip …See Also Crystal Castles >Lastfm
