The story of #MySelf

Had to much stuff to write about today to fit it all in one single post, so here’s post number 2 for tonight, mostly regarding myself and my music.

Did a small Facebook Live-concert last Sunday as a warm up for my Wednesday gig and my mini-tour in the UK. Check it out here.

And on Wednesday I met up with the great guys of Planefield at PSB at around 5pm to Soundcheck and drink a few beers before the show. I opened the evening with my acoustic set, and at least some people join in even though the weather outside where fantastic. Fortunately there were the other bands plus some family and friends coming to see me.

Then Planefield entered the stage and gave a great performance. “It doesn’t matter anyway”, a song the lead singer wrote to his sister when she was in the hospital, is one of my favorite songs this year.

And then For the Legion went up and raised both the tempo and the temperature with their energetic pop-punk.

All in all a really great evening and looking forward to my upcoming gigs in the UK.

Otherwise I spent quite a lot of time rehearsing the songs for my upcoming EP and next day in the studio will be in the end of July, can’t wait to lay down some guitar tracks.

And this Friday I have the amazing honor to be played, not only once, but twice on my friend D Grant Smith and his show The Appetizer Radio Show that’s broadcast on various radio stations in the US.  As Borat says “Great success”.

Also wanna give a special thanks to some people that been really helpful lately. Jgor from the Management-firm Oboroten gave me really good advice when I wrote my first licensing agreement and I can really recommend him and his business.

And also Archibald from Radio Kaos Caribou that were really helpful giving a lot of feedback when I was working with my new web site design. Check him and his superb radio station out.

And as promised, here are the rest of the songs added to #KEEPOUTOFTHEMAINSTREAM-playlist

bzur is an Italian musician who both makes classical music but also ambient electronica, and you can really tell he has a lot of musical talent listening to this songs.

Airdrop gives us something completely different. Classical rock n’ roll with some garage feeling. Try not to move you feet to this!

The Trusted came to my attention via two of the members father who added them to the #MonsterThread-playlist. Really talented guys and great indie rock.

Nowadays it’s hard to find good hip hop/r’n’b. Maybe it’s because I’m getting old. Nonetheless Okay(K) added some dope tunes to the playlist and this is my favorite. Great beat and great rap.

Speaking of getting old. Instead of the P3 (The Swedish Public Service Radio’s youth channel), if I have to listen to the radio I use to tune in P2 (who mostly plays classical music). And thanks to that I found this jewel. Nils Berg Cinemascope, a Swedish jazz-trio that sampled a Afghanistan boy singing a traditional song and arrange it with some jazzy tunes. The result is stunning.

And for some variation, instrumental hard rock/psychedelic rock from the Dutch band Ugochill. Really enjoy this energetic track.

And then I sum this day up with some ambient electronica again, this time all the way from South Africa. I give you Walter Mmari who makes a lot of different music, but this is my favorite of him so far.

Even though I tend to favor indie rock/folk on the playlist I’m really happy to introduce some nice variation and therefore I give you GADD. The music might have a humorist side to it, but it’s still really good and well preformed. Acoustic rock/Alt country as it should be!

So there you go, a nice collection of songs from various genres to take you through the working week.
