Nutmeg is a band from Sweden. They was formed 2000 in Örnsköldsvik. In 2006 Johan Bergqvist joined the roster on guitar. The band has toured throughout Sweden over the years, including prestigious gigs at Emmaboda Festival, the Rookie Festival in Hultsfred and Trästocksfestivalen.
Their debut album "The Trigger" was released in 2009 on the indie label Iconic Noise, and was rewarded 5/5 in Sweden's largest music magazine "Groove", which earned it a placed in the "Top 10 albums released 2009”. The second album is under production and will be released later this year.
Nutmeg is out on a mini tour with Hong Faux (A band that has recently been on Tune Of The Day). On Wednesday (earlier this week), they visited the Lilla Hotellbaren, Scandic Malmen here in Stockholm, first out was the Stockholm band Hong Faux who did a really awesome gig, was in my mind a bit tighter than last time, the band did pretty much everything on stage and went into the role of rock stars and offered a plate of fantastic rock with a wonderful groove. Waiting for full length album with excitement.
Nutmeg got on half hour after Hong Faux, Nutmeg, this is a band that is a new acquaintance of mine, so I stood there and waited for them to get up. Johan Bergqvist is bassist in Hong Faux had made a quick change of clothes to take on the guitar for Nutmeg.
The band kicked off with an interesting mix of rock, pop and hardcore, I must say that it was actually really good, nice groove and the live vocalist Henke gave everything and reminded at times of Iggy Pop on stage.
Here are some pictures from the evening, starting out a bit with Hong Faux and then Nutmeg.
Todays tune "Space” is the first single from NUTMEG's second album Basement Riot.
