    2. New Music Nordics – Album and EP releases for March 2022

      Denmark

      Artist Title Format Released Genre Link
      Andreas Odbjerg Hjem Fra Fabrikken Album 4/3/22 Indie pop Spotify
      Croatian Amor Remember Rainbow Bridge Album 25/3/22 Ambient Bandcamp

      Commentary:
      Only two Danish finds for the inaugral NMN post. Förlåt! Andreas's album title probably gives a clue, but it's a Danish language release. Don't be put off by the funny language though, and check out the track “i morgen er der også en dag”, with over 8 million Spotify streams.


      Finland

      As I May Karu Album 4/3/22 Metal Spotify
      Babel Yoga Horror Album 4/3/22 Indie pop SoundCloud
      Kuolemanlaakso Kuusumu Album 4/3/22 Death doom Bandcamp
      Lone Deer Laredo Lone Deer Laredo, Vol. 2 Album 18/3/22 Dream pop Spotify
      Louie Blue DIVISION 8 Album 18/3/22 Pop Linkfire
      Pehmoaino Kaukana Kotoa EP 11/3/22 Pop Spotify
      Von Hertzen Brothers Red Alert In The Blue Forest Album 18/3/22 Prog rock Spotify

      Commentary:
      I can get behind Babel's album title and the music there on it. “Eden” is a dream-like opening track from a band compared in the media to the shoegazers Slowdive and also the Cocteau Twins. I hear a little Casey Dienel's “White Hinterland” in there.

      Moddi Bråtebrann Album 18/3/22 Indie folk Bancamp
      Suð Save The Swimmers Album 15/3/22 Lofi Spotify
      ÞAU Taka Vestfirði Album 11/3/22 Folk SoundCloud

      Commentary:
      It's not just album releases covered on NMN, but also beautiful EP's, like Axel Flóvent's. The instrumental title track “Coexist” might not have the obvious popularity of the other tracks, but it carries a melancholic piano very reminiscent of some of Aphex Twin's tracks on “Drukqs”.

      Commentary:
      For those of you that missed it, Jenny Hval gave an interview to The Guardian that was posted to Tildes earlier in the month. In it they talk to Rachel Aroesti about their life and how changes in it guided the making of the avant garde musician's new album “Classic Objects”.

      Tobias Bäckstrand Heal Album 18/3/22 Folk Spotify

      Commentary:
      Being based in Sweden means that this list is inevitably the longer of them. There are some great pop releases in March, especially with Lucky Lo's catchy release “Supercarry” among them. But for international name recognition, they are all overshadowed this month by the first new Ghost LP since 2018.
