Band of the Week on Audio Graffiti!

This week we have been honoured to be the band of the week on the web radio station Audio Graffiti. And tonight we’ll be featured on Mark Taylor’s Musicology show at 7pm-9pm GMT!

We do recommend that you take a look at this station. There’s a great variety of music from mainly independent artists in a number of different shows running every week. This is how I would like all radio to be like.

Mood-of-Sunday-night-song

Late Sunday night, and this is the sort of mode I’m in.
This song by Passenger captured me. Brilliant!

Mastering the new single

Yesterday it was time to do the mastering of the new single. Mastering is, for those of you who don’t know, when you do the last preparation and adjustment of a song before releasing it. It involves a lot of very expensive and well-sounding audio equipment and a pair of well tunes and experienced ears.
And since we admittedly have neither of those things we are forced to take our business elsewhere, namely to Stockholm Mastering and mastering engineer Thomas Eberger (in the picture above and left).
Thomas brought his magic to the two new songs. Listening, turning buttons, and generally tweaking things for an hour or so and then everything just sounded so much better.  Fantastic!

So now we have two new songs ready. Now we need to fix a release date, plan the release… Well do all those things that needs to be done when releasing stuff to the world.

It feels great, it’s been almost two years since last. Too long if you ask me.

Where you can hear yourself think

Kittel 004

Every I pack myself and the family into our car and drive 900 kilometers north. Up into the mountains and the wilderness. Our destination is a little village called Kittelfjäll (literally Cauldron Mountain in English) . Just a few houses clustered together on the mountain side beside the road that winds further on towards the Norwegian border.

It’s a place for rest, a place of peace, a place of quietness and place where you can hear yourself think. Even the smallest of thought can make themselves heard.

Here are some pictures I took this year that hopefully can share a little bit of that magic.

First mix almost there

My father died suddenly in 1996 and 10 years after I wrote this song as a simple tribute. It only took 8 more years before it was recorded but here it is, almost finished.
It’s nothing sophisticated but it’s got a certain vibe to it I think.

Looking back on summer

sonjas04_Snapseed

Ok, there was frost on the car this morning. Winter is coming wheather we like it or not.

Time then to pick a few pictures from Sonja’s lovely visit this summer. We did track 7 songs and had wonderful time. It was all sun, both outside and in our minds.

And the result? Well here is a preview of one of the songs. Hope you enjoy, and that you can feel that summer feeling.

First sounds from the new album

We are happy to bring you the first sounds from the new album. A work-in-progress mix of the song “Life Goes On”. Taken just after finishing the vocals tracks with Sonja Hewer.
Lasse wrote the song already in 2006 as a 10 year tribute to his father who passed away in 1996. It’s been in a drawer ever since, until Lasse sort of “rediscovered” it for the new album.
Hope you will enjoy and like it.
