Albert Swarm is from a small town somewhere in the north of Finland. He relocated to Brooklyn and during this time, his debut EP Held was thought up and put together mainly in his bedroom using instruments he had packed in his carry-on travel bag. This track was made last year, when Held was still on the works. The title is taken from Kahlil Gibran‘s poem “The Coming of the Ship“, the first poetic essay from his book The Prophet.

People often ask me about my involvement with the art of music. So I was debating lately what should best describe this addiction. I mean, I have done it all, wrote music, performed, played the guitar, engineered, produced and remixed, even reviewed and posted some lately. But the most basic connection or simply love, is through sound. It’s the tone the carries me, makes me forgot about lyrics, form, hooks, or structure. Good, sweet, original, repetitive, minimalistic, interesting, grainy, ragged, clean, vintage, new sound does it to me. That’s probably why I love those guys so much..Perispirit is the collaborative project of Ricardo Donoso and Luke Moldof, here delivering their debut album proper after a number of cassette editions for Prurient’s Hospital Productions and Ricardo’s own Semata imprint.
Take a listen to ‘Spiritual church movement’ by those guys and get a drift of what is it that keeps me awake in this tiring cosmos..

Got to repost this beauty, after listened to it premieres on NFOP. ‘Ghosts’ is Such a touching piece be A dancing beggar, and it takes me to ‘Albert Nobbs’, the incredible movie I have seen the other day, a monument for pain, loneliness, an observation from such a distant place, and this piece is a better soundtrack for that movie than the original one, and its title ‘Ghosts’, seems to be named after the ghostly life of Albert…may his tortured soul rest in piece now…
Watch the incredible documentary made by Swedish company House of Radon about the direction of art in the digital era we are at.

A must for all of you….besides.. at these times of the SOPA cloud, this is presented to you free of charge.

This collection of songs has been curated out of the 300 artists and tracks we have covered throughout the year. This has been more or less my iPod’s most abused playlist, and the magical number that we have come up with, are those songs that have accompanied us for the longest time. Those of you that will dig deeper, will realize that our heart belongs to lofi minimalistic bedroom music and we are always on the search for musicians that succeed in making inspiring music within the limitations of their homes or bedroom and despite of the fact they had no budget . SONG ORDER IS PRETTY MUCH MEANINGLESS, allthough we have placed the artists you are most likely to know at the top spots.
We wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Chanukah, a Joyous Kwanzaa, and a Happy New Year…and we hope next year will be as inspiring and rewarding as this one.
