Ghost - Opus Eponymous

Ghost - Opus Eponymous
(2010) Rise Above

What can I say that haven't already been said about this fabolous record? I can only agree to the all the praises it have gained. It sure sounds a bit like both The Devil's Blood and Mercyful Fate, but you already knew that! Fortuneately Ghost adds a bit of their own sound as well, therefor I don't consider this as being a cheap copy. Get it now!

The Concretes - WYWH

The Concretes - WYWH (2010)
Licking Fingers

And now for something completely different, but maybe not as different as you first think. Sure, this is supposed to be yet another of all those boring Swedish (indie-) pop bands that all sound the same. But I must say I like this album. It's very melancholic and it has an almost danceable feeling to it. I haven't heared their earlier albums, and I don't think I ever will. I have serious doubts of them being as good as this.

VA - Septic IX

VA - Septic IX (2010)

Dependent records surprises me with a new Septic compilation (already #9!) without a new Mind.In.A.Box or Seabound track. But it's a really good album anyway. Highlights are Rotersand's "First Time (Club Re-Work)", Mindless Self Indulgence's "Never Wanted To Dance (Combichrist Electro Hurtz Mix)" and the Steril mix of Edge Of Dawn's "Stage Fright". There's also a really cool cover of Paula Abdul's "Cold Hearted" by No Not Never.

Rotersand - Waiting To Be Born EP

Rotersand - Waiting To Be Born
EP (2010) Trisol

Not Rotersand's best release in any way, this companion EP to last years excellent "Random Is Resistance" album. But it has some good remixes and three new tracks, too bad the new tracks sound like leftovers from the before mentioned album. Buy it if you, like me, are a huge Rotersand fan - otherwise save your money for a I Am Awesome Because I Still Buy Music t-shirt.

Kite - III EP

Kite - III EP (2010)

Yes! A new EP by my favourite Swedish electro pop band. This is just as good as their previous EP's. I hope they never give up the EP format, 4-5 songs at a time is just perfect!
If you've heared Kite before you'll know what to expect. Both playful and mellow electronic pop-tunes.
