On “Så Underbart Va Livet”, their first new material of 2019, the Swedish duo Club 8 continue with softly ambient melodies similar to what they gave us on their previous LP, Golden Island (2018).
This is the introduction of my new Formative series in which I recount, somewhat autobiographically, how an artist or band lent itself to substantial moments in throughout my life. These are pivotal moments, both from an obsessive, music-loving sense, as well as the personal lifetime milestone sense. Through time, I hope to discuss the works… Continue reading Formative: The Prelude to a Musical Autobiography
I feel like “Cash” has been a long time coming for Swedish artist The Legends. As I’ve noted on several occasions over the past decade here on FensePost, with each new release The Legends delves into a new faction of music. “Cash”, the new single off the forthcoming LP Nightshift is no exception.

What I do recall from that early single is light electronic dance music with trance-like beats and pop-like hooks. “Come Rain,… Continue reading Pallers: Come Rain, Come Sunshine (MP3)
On his fourth album under the guise The Legends, Johan Angergård surprises yet again. After three albums that each take the group in a different direction, it has become standard to expect no less from the next release, and thus it was on Over And Over. The first two singles demonstrated this aptly, drowning the… Continue reading The Legends: Over And Over [Album Review]
