Best Of Sweden 2005

I was trying to do a top 10 of scandinavian bands of 2005 but then I realized that 9 out of 10 where from Sweden. So I decided to do a little "2005 Best of Sweden Compilation" instead... I probably missed some, but I've been up since 5.30 this morning thanks to my 2 month year old son Elliott - Must sleep... Can't think straight.

I "borrowed" two tracks from the wonderful site It's a trap... Hope it's ok Avi

The Embassy - It Pays To Belong (mp3)
Jens Lekman - Black Cab (mp3)
Amandine - Halo (mp3)
Firefox AK - What's That Sound? (mp3)
Pelle Carlberg - Go To Hell Miss Rydell (mp3)
Suburban Kids With Biblical Names - Loop Duplicate My Heart (mp3)
The Kid - Kit Club Hotel (mp3)

Best Album 2005 Arcade Fire: Funeral

Everybody is doing lists at the moment, but I'll just put one single album on my list. Funeral is without a doubt the best LP from 05!

Check out a few great memories!

Rebellion (Lies) music video
Wake Up! music video
Neighborhood # 3 Local 506 in Chapel Hill, NC - July 28th, 2004


I agree this album is already an all-time classic. I wanted to link to some more liveperfomances but then I found out that The Torture Gaden already did the ultimate Arcade-Fire-Post of the year. Tjeck it out here. - The only one he forgot was Arcade Fire on Sounds Eclectic (KCRW).


The Shins

Somehow I missed out on this amazing band the first time around, but after watching Garden State I have to agree with Natalie Portman; "You gotta hear this one song, it'll change your life I swear!". The song "New Slang" is from Their 2001 debut album "Oh, Inverted World".
This song just blows my mind!!

Watch the video for New Slang
Watch The Shins on Morning Becomes Eclectic

Hello Saferide

The small Swedish record Label Razzia Records is one of the best labels when it comes to Scandinavian Indie pop. Annika Norlin a.k.a. Hello Saferide is no exception, her debut album has just hit the streets in Scandinavia.

Flaming Lips and the Vines

Two releases I'm really looking forward to next year are the new album from the Flaming Lips album, "At War With The Mystics" witch is going to be released in April. It's supposed to be more electronic but yet more organic than "Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots" from 2002.
The other one is from the Vines. I'm not sure what the title is going to be. I hope that it's going to be as good as "Highly Involved" from 02. Their last album "Winning Days" from 04 was not the Vines at their best.

By the way I've been listening to this song all day. It's a cover version by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs of The Liars:

Mr. You're On Fire, Mr.

It's addictive.

Martin Buhl

Danger Doom

One of this years best hiphop albums has to be Mouse and the mask from DangerDoom. Check out the new video Aqua Teen Hunger Force sponsored by Cartoon Network.


Very close to Canada you will find Portland and in Portland you will find Menomena. Check out the new funny/ scarry video Cough Coughing!

Victor Scott

Speaking of canadian music I highly recommend mr. Victor Scott. He will put out his new album on January 9th. You can listen to some tracks here.

Gotta Go
Fallen Arrow

Why not listen to some old stuff aswell?

Kleinhenz gig in Copenhagen

I just received an email from one of my absolute favorite artists of 2005 Björn Kleinhenz. In short he promises to stop by Copenhagen for a gig in 2006.

Until that, this should keep you warm:

Immaculate Machine

In theese Canadian indie rock times it's cool to discover great bands almost every day. Immaculate Machine from Victoria, British Columbia are todays new thing. They put out their brilliant album, Ones And Zeros, a few month ago. Check out two tracks!

Broken Ship


New Years Eve Tip

OK - No plans for The Big Night yet? Here's a cool tip for the cool indie dude with a cool budget:
1. Hit the Groove ticket shop for a Giant Village '06 ticket
2. Jump on a flight to L.A
3. Hit a couple of record stores (support support)
4. Get pissed with Wayne Coyne and The Lips, Junior Senior, Death Cab for Cutie and shitloads of cool DJ's....
Only Setback: The Black Eyed Peas hits the main stage at some piont...

Mads Langer - Casual Cliché

I've earlier bragged about this dude - and to our international audience and users I'm proud to present Mads Langer.
Facts: Debut artist, 21 years old, talented like hell. Album coming out on Copenhagen Records this spring.

Casual Cliché - acoustic version.

Tiger Lou, a sell out?

It’s been written on this blog a couple of weeks ago. The new Tiger Lou album “The Loyal” is pretty disappointing. Apart from the album titled single “The Loyal”, there are only half a handful of decent tracks on it. I like “Ten Minutes to take off” though.

Listen for your self:
Tiger Lou - The Loyal Album Player

There’s a reason why we here at DoCopenhagen are very disappointed of Tiger Lou. We know what he’s capable of! Check out these fabulous old tunes/videos.

Living In A Box

"Am I living in a box - Am I living in a cardboard box" - these words gets a whole new meaning with this super cool video from Panther (don't really know if I like the music).

Watch the video (.mov)

Panther’s music is a hard match of damaged soul, falsetto disco and broken synth fueled freak-outs, which is as addictive as it is challenging. Vinyl version Contains full album on A-Side plus 2 DJ friendly dance versions on the B-Side.

Panther debut 12" is out on the new label Fryk Beat in the beginning of the new year.

Last video from me today... I promise

Zombiegrinder 60000

I think this is the best game I've ever played...


First Impressions Of Earth

The new album from The Strokes has been floating around the Pirate Bay for a couple of weeks. I have been listening to it quite a lot and I have to admit that I like it more and more. In the beginning I thought that it had some kind of a The-Darkness-meets-Foo Fighters-flavour to it. But when you get more into it, its actually a really nice fresh album. The release date has been moved forward to January 2nd because of the pirate leak.If you haven't done so already, check out the video for the first single Juicebox that wasout December 5th.

David and the Citizens

One of my favourite Swedish bands, David and the Citizens has been signed by US label Friendly Fire. First release is a compilation EP with tracks from earlier releases in Scandinavia. Friendly Fire is also going to release their great album: Until Sadness is Gone. If you don't know the band you should take a listen to some of their songs right here.

UNKLE - Rabbit In Your Headlights

Speaking of good videos. This is one of the best music videos ever made. This will make it in to my top 10 videos of all time.
