Danish duo Furns release special edition vinyl

Vinyl loves should get their credit cards ready as Danish duo Furns release their album ‘Only Through Your Eyes' on beautiful vinyl.

Furns consists of Monika Faludi and Mathias Dahl Andreasen, and the recently married couple celebrated their union with the birth of a vinyl album.

After reviewing music from Finland over the years, I can conclude that Finnish soul artists always give 100%. There is no midpoint to aspire to. They’re passionate about music, so it’s all or nothing.

Finnish soul began with Quintessence, became established with Tuomo, and grew with Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators, Dolla Lova, Humus and The Napkins, to name but a few. All have all set the standard, and it’s a high one.

With a beautifully designed vinyl album, a CD and a live DVD (yes, a live DVD) to accompany his latest release, Nothing Can Stop My Spirit, it’s clear that Mikko Pettinen is another passionate Finnish music creator, too.

One of Sweden’s most outstanding and versatile vocalists, Kristin Amparo, demonstrates her formidable talent on a fantastic new self-titled, eight-track album from Combo De La Musica.

Blending Latin vibes, ’60s harmonies and retro vibes, Combo De La Musica deliver a warm embrace of all the wonderful key elements that make music so very enjoyable.

The Swedish city Umeå sits to the right in the far north of Sweden. It’s a renowned university town with over 39,000 students. The winters are long and biting cold, and the summer seems endlessly bright and warm. Musically, Umeå is well known for its hardcore punk and rock scene and the annual Umeå Jazz Festival, one of Scandinavia’s largest modern jazz festivals.

Emerging between the two musical styles is the soulful Swedish singer Martina Hed, who has just released her debut EP, Introducing.

The highly anticipated and long-awaited new album AMYGDALA from Swedish singer Tingsek is out now!

The 14 track album features the singles The Fiddlers, and Gas Station Gus - two skilfully crafted soulful singles, expressing the deep soul and haunting lyrical message Tingsek has been carefully constructing.

As you listen to AMYGDALA you’ll also discover the album is completely produced, written and sung with the same depth of musicianship and soulful passion.

Mark our words - AMYGDALA is Tingsek’s masterpiece, and one of the best albums you’ll hear all year!

Nosizwe releases her new single - So Gone

South African/ Norwegian singer Nosizwe, releases So Gone, the second single from her forthcoming debut album, 'In Fragments'.

With each release Nosizwe continues to entice us as her soulful, R&B flavour is again flawless on this new track. Produced by singer-songrwriter Georgia Anne Muldrow, So Gone is lyrically honest, sad and yet uplifting as it reflects Nosizwe personal experiences.
