Popsicle - Not Forever

Few bands have been so characteristic for their time as POPSICLE. With classic hits like Sunkissed, "Hey Princess" and "Not Forever" they became the soundtrack for many people’s 90’s. Now they are back and ready to take on Linné stage at Way Out West.

POPSICLE is a pop group in Piteå in Sweden, which together with THIS PERFECT DAY, THE WANNADIES and BRAINPOOL started the 1990s indiepop wave in Sweden.

POPSICLE may have laid the foundations of the Swedish indie scene, but it was not until four years later as the band played through to a wider audience, that they had their biggest hit - the single and today's tune "Not Forever" from the self-titled third album.

Iggy Pop - Lust For Life

There’s a reason why many consider Iggy Pop the godfather of punk – every single punk band of the past and present has either knowingly or unknowingly borrowed a thing or two from him and his late-’60s/early ’70s band, The Stooges. Widely acknowledged as one of the most dynamic stage performers of all time, Iggy Pop pre-figured both ‘70s punk and ‘90s grunge and has built a legendary career filled with both critical acclaim and fanatic cult success. Many say you should put seeing Iggy rock out on one’s “must see” list – his fans of all generations are the first to testify to that. This summer you will get the chance to cross him out on that list, as Iggy Pop will take his spectacular live show to Way Out West this summer.

Iggy Pop has released some 20 albums during his over 50 year long career. The first two of Iggy Pop’s solo albums after disbanding THE STOOGES were co-written and produced by David Bowie – collaboration widely discussed as one of the most epic musical alliances. Some of those albums produced anthemic sounds like The Passenger, commercially successful collaborations like Candy(with Kate Pierson) and hits featured in cult movies (Lust for Life, Repo Man and In the Death Car). His latest – Post Pop Depression – was released in 2016 and became a huge success. In 2010, Iggy and the Stooges were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. His latest piece of new music was a collaboration between Jarvis Cocker of Pulp and himself, where they both recorded a magnificent cover version of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Red Right Hand for the TV-series Peaky Blinders.

Iggy Pop was performing in Slottsskogen on Thursday August 9.

Todays tune "Lust for Life" is a 1977 song performed by Iggy Pop and co-written by David Bowie, featured on the album of the same name.

St. Vincent - New York

It’s hard not to be impressed by Annie Clark – or St. Vincent as she calls herself. Last year she released her fifth album, MASSEDUCTION, on which she once again exceeds all expectations. With a unique sound, an amazing voice and a quaint expression one can agree that St. Vincent is one of the most interesting artists of our time. Apart from all this, she’s also a guitar virtuoso who has been called “the first truly 21st century guitar hero” by Guitar World Magazine, an excellent songwriter and a true innovator of the pop music of today.

After breaking through with magnificent Marry Me in 2007 – and being compared to the likes of David Bowie and Kate Bush – every release by St. Vincent has meant a fascinating experience. Equally fascinating in a live environment, St. Vincent can easily be described as one of the most exciting live performers of today, always breaking boundaries and introducing new concepts. She has also recorded a collaborative album and embarked on a tour with one of her biggest fans – David Byrne of Talking Heads

St Vincent did perform in Slottsskogen on Thursday August 9.

Today's tune "New York", is taken from the fifth studio album "Masseduction" (stylized in all caps). It was released on October 13, 2017, through Loma Vista Recordings.[4] The album peaked at number 10 on the Billboard 200, becoming her first top ten album in the United States. The album also received universal acclaim and was the fourth-most mentioned in critic's year-end lists for 2017

Thåström - Bluesen i Malmö

Thåström is considered by many as Sweden’s only true rockstar. Regardless if one agrees or not, Thåström serves as a school book example on how to remain relevant as an artist over an extended period of time. Always curious, never cynical and with an artistic integrity set in stone he managed what very few of his colleagues could: he stayed relevant during four decades. His concerts are no exceptions. Often described as a haunting experience, with Thåströms standing in front of a powerful backlight, singing his very own kind of industrial blues like no one else.

Thåström is a legendary Swedish artist and performer, his roots stretch back to the punk rock movement in the late 70s. Since the late 80s he has released several acclaimed solo records and 2017 he released “Centralmassivet” which was awarded with a Grammy.

Thåström will perform in Slottsskogen on Saturday August 11.

Today's tune "Bluesen i Malmö", enjoy!
