Ambient Swedish Electronic Act, Korallreven, Making US Debut

KorallrevenThe Swedes are continuing their not-so-hostile takeover of the U.S. music scene with dreamy electro pop duo, Korallreven. Starting next week, the band will be playing their first shows in the U.S. in support of their beautifully ambient 2011 debut, An Album By Korallreven.

The good news: The band will be making a stop in Chicago on March 6th @ Lincoln Hall.

The bad news: Victoria Bergsman won’t be making a guest appearance at that particular show. If you haven’t heard her in the bands Taken By Trees or The Concretes, you should definitely give them a spin too.

Check out and download their ethereal song, “Sa Sa Samoa” (ft. Juliana Barwick) below and download the “For Real For Sure For You” remix of the song.

3/4 – New York, NY – Bowery Ballroom
3/5 – Washington DC – Black Cat
3/6 – Chicago, IL – Lincoln Hall
3/7 – San Francisco, CA – Independent*
3/8 – Los Angeles, CA – Echoplex*

*Guest appearance by Victoria Bergsman (who you can hear below)

Shearwater “Breaking The Yearlings”

I always forget how much I like Shearwater’s music. Thankfully, Sub Pop has brought it back to my attention and they’ve added “Breaking The Yearlings” to the beginning of their 2012 free download compilation. Stream below, download here.

Shearwater will be coming to Lincoln Hall with Sharon Van Etten (OMG!!!) for two dates in February. Here’s to hoping I can make both if not one of these nights.
