ICEKIID Ingen Roser Uden Torne Album 3/6/22 Hip hop Spotify

Commentary: Quite the variety of styles with this month's Danish NMN contingent. It's definitely Bbybites who has caught the ears though. Rapper Martha Maj Hauptmann brings the attitude with her refreshing mix of pop and hip hop. Track “Whatever“ from her latest EP is on rotation.

DANTCHEV:DOMAIN The Lions We Are Album 1/6/22 Folk Bandcamp
IANAI Sunir Album 10/6/22 Folk Bandcamp

Commentary: IANAI's debut album really does defy genre classification, with its epic soundscapes influenced by folk music from across the globe. The talent found on “Sunir” is nothing to be sniffed at either, with guest appearances from HIM, Sisters of Mercy and Massive Attack to name a few.

Hugrún Post-Apocalyptic Love Songs EP 23/6/22 Indie pop Spotify
Una Torfa Flækt Og Týnd Og Einmana EP 10/6/22 Singer songwriter Spotify

Commentary: This might become my new obsession. After unexpectedly discovering some Finnish surf rock last month, this month it's the turn of Iceland. Check out the acoustic title track from Fjara – whose name translates to beach/shore – on their brand-new EP “Surfdays”.

Khold Svartsyn Album 24/6/22 Black metal href+

Commentary: Jørn Lande is back with a new studio album, five years since 2017's “Life On Death Road”. Where “Over The Horizon Radar“ lacks in innovation or even boundary pushing, it makes up for in familiar power vocals and eleven solid melodic metal songs.
