Weekly POPcast #33, a Labrador Records special

Both from Sweden

To most of us over here, Sweden means IKEA furniture, Jönköping matches, and quality pop music. We were talking about the last on tonight’s Outerbeat.

We went all woof as the show was dedicated to Labrador Records, “Sweden’s and the world’s finest purveyor of pop music” in their own words. Founded in 1997 by Bengt Rahm and merged with Johan Angergård’s Summersound Records a couple of years later, the label has been tirelessly sniffing out good Swedish music and bring it in to us all over the globe.

In homage to the label, we chose 10 Labrador artists and played a song from each artist (trust me, it was hard to pick just ten). We even had requests sent in hours before the show started. We played both old and new artists, ranging from Tribeca‘s synth-tinged pop to Pelle Carlberg‘s amusing parody of… you know who (or you will, when you listen to the podcast). Oh, and Acid House Kings and Club 8 as well, naturally. 😉

Weekly POPcast #25, Random Songs

Sheggi of the Fat Tulips

Sheggi of the Fat Tulips

Yet another assortment of pop tunes from all over the world, this time featuring The Raveonettes (who just played a show in Indonesia recently), Fat Tulips, Bunny Grunt, The Legends, 800 Cherries, Rocketship, Clover and Felt Tips. Our friends from Ansaphone have been very nice to send us an exclusive single off their upcoming album, which will be released early next year.

We also played Smiths’ “The Boy with the Thorn in His Side” as a birthday surprise for our friend and mentor at Outerbeat, Dimas Widiarto. As our very own DJ Japra was still away at his hometown, stand-in DJ Ellie took over in the most amateurish and substandard way possible. Hope that won’t spoil your listening pleasure, though – so here’s the podcast for you guys to listen!
