And so we are now in December and everyone is frantically making end-of-year lists (ours will come just as soon as we find five minutes), but let’s not forget some of the stellar Scandi tunes that were released in November. Catch up with our Good Moose Monthly playlist on either YouTube or Soundcloud. As ever, not everything is available on both, or either, but we’ve gathered together as many as we can for you. And just because we love the artwork, we’ve put Little Jinder up the top of the page. None of the new tracks from her new album are on YouTube or Soundcloud, but you can, and should, listen on Spotify.
Written in 2012 but only seeing the light of day now is this killer track from one of Sweden’s leading up-and-coming rappers, in a collaboration with one of Sweden’s sweetest-voiced pop stars. Eboi hasn’t got too many tracks to his name to date, but is being championed by Adam Tensta and could be set for big things. Little Jinder, meanwhile, released an English language album to moderate success in 2013 but has now switched to Swedish and has released some very exciting tracks (with some fantastic videos) before her forthcoming new album, due in the last week of November. On the RMH Records blog, Eboi states that this track was written “at a time when increasing feeling of hopelessness was repeatedly being reinforced by bad news and burning buildings. Written at a time when descending into the depths of indifference seemed inevitable.” So pretty bleak stuff, but still an excellent tune. And a free download.
