BEST OF 2014 – SWEDISH ARTISTS PICKS (PART 4)

Now I told you about my favourite Swedish albums of the year (#1 / #2, #3, #4 / #5, #6, #7 / #8, #9, #10), here come the opinions of Swedish artists Absolut Noise do like. I asked them to send me their “top 5 list of what they will remember from 2014, especially in music, especially within Sweden”. Some made it short, others went long. Thanks to all of them for their time! PS : there are plenty of artists mentioned here, I did not link to all of them but I guess you can google the ones you like :-)

Today, part 4, with Nina Kinert, Pontus Levahn (from Tiger Lou and Torpedo), Per Nordmark (BANDOBRANSKI/NORDMARK and Kriget), Nord & Syd and Jacob Douglas (who was (still is?) in the band Sonjagon, then went solo). Only good and talented people then.

 
NINA KINERT
My swede musical year in no particular order :
1. Lorentz album ”Kärlekslåtar”
2. Amanda Bergman singing “Jingle Bells” on the x-mas album we’re both on.
3. My next album. Since I’ve been recording it this fall, it has filled up everything that I am the last couple of months. So impossible not to mention for me. Among other things it includes a co-lab with Nicolas Makelberge which I’m very happy about.
4. Mapei’s song ”Keep it Cool”.
5. iamamiwhoami. The songs ”Blue Blue” and ”Fountain”.
