Babian – new album out now

May 26, 2017 Comments off

The new album from Babian (baboon in Swedish) ”Den AndraSidan (The Other Side) is due to be released on the 26th of May 2016.
Babian’s new record started out as a chain letter between the band members involving everybody in the song writing process. As a result a new and darker sound emerged and with it lyrics with symbolic and sometimes even introspective elements. In a new world order where lies have turned into alternative facts and submission is the only path to freedom Babian forces the listener to think twice and hopefully come out with new perspectives- on the other side

Babian is a Swedish rock band with three previous records in their catalogue. The band has been hailed as the future of Swedish rock and received extraordinary reviews for both records and live performances. Babian has been nominated for the ”P3 guld” (Swedish radio music awards) performed in national radio and television and composed music for popular TV-shows. The band has played on most major stages in Sweden and also toured Norway, Finland and Germany besides performing at the Roskilde festival in Denmark.

J.Tex & The Volunteers New Album Out January 30

January 28, 2015 Comments off

J.Tex & The Volunteers – Old Ways vs New Days

See the brand new video from the song “Ship Coming In” from the album

The final result is ten finely crafted songs, recorded together with guest musician Bebe Risenfors (who played with Tom Waits), and of course the Volunteers, Tue Lund Christensen on bass and Jason Bedard on drums.

J.Tex was born in Detroit and raised in Denmark, he feels quite at home in both in the United States, where he has many musical collaborators, and in Copenhagen, where he lives today.

He is very much part of the Southern Swedish rock’n’roll scene, where a love of music, vintage American cars, old motorcycles, vintage clothing and the shine of well greased hair is very much a way of life.

The best of USA, Denmark and Sweden come together on this, the coolest album release this winter!

press2_lo”A strange highly original, cleverly constructed and
loose take on the genre.”
– Mike Morrison

”Heptown has a truly impressive feel for roots and
rockabilly music and the know how to pick their band.
J.Tex & The Volunteers is another great Heptown act.”
– Buster Fayte

”At times it’s like Seasick Steve meets Cab Calloway, others it’s more Tom Waits meets
Maurice Chevalier. It’s certainly different, but most importantly, it’s wonderful.”
– Music People
