Swedish underage pop darling Amanda Mair has just released her long awaited debut LP on local label Labrador, which is also my two dogs’ breed. I’m glad I’ve discovered this song at the same time summer seems to be finally showing up on this weather-wrecked Iberian peninsula. You can also download the mp3 here and please ignore that person who says the song reminds him of ABBA. It’s as spot-on as comparing her to IKEA.

Tropical Tobacco, “Aboriginal”

Tropical Tobacco is not a reference to Cuban cigars. After all, no one likes anything made by commies. Damn commies. But it could be a description of this one-man band’s sound: “tropical” as in surf-pop guitar and African-style keyboards and “tobacco” because it goes well with a mojito and a nice Cuban cigar. Oh, fuck, I’ve just contradicted myself… but nevermind: head on to TT’s Bandcamp below and listen to both “Pineapple Express” and “Ambiguous”, the only tracks the guy’s put out so far – but expect more in the future. Relaxation is guaranteed.
