If there’s any band that sounds like Sweden to me, it’s Kent.
Swedish band Kent wrote and performed this theme song for a Swedish TV show about the homeless of Stockholm. The proceeds from the single went to a charity for the same cause.
Lisa Miskovsky - Got a friend
This video caters to my kinks.
A memory, a wildered rose, my summer dream, my winter ghost
As this isn’t really known anywhere outside of Sweden, and it’s a wonderful music video, I’m putting it on here.
Lisa Miskovsky - Acceptable Losses
Because Lisa makes purdy songs. From her album “Changes”.
This reminds me of the area where my grandma used to live. Concrete becomes beautiful if you stare at it long enough. No, really.
Lars Lerin, capturer of northern melancholy.
One of my favorite artists. He did these amazing books about the last, dying generation of farmers out in Swedish rural areas. Heartbreaking stuff, as I’m sure you can guess from his pictures.
