Ryan Adams - Blank Space


Time to wrap up Way Out West and post the last one from the festival. This time it was my 10th Way Out West of 11 :) The weather was pretty good, only two days with rain, site was in good condition and easy to build on, the volunteers was awesome as always in Gothenburg and made the life easy for us in the crew. The music was ok, even if I would love to have some more Rock than the festival supply´s. The vegetarian food was really good this year, good mix of various dishes. My favourite this year of all the artists is Ryan Adams and PIXIES. Both bands deliverd great music.

Here comes a batch of some live and odd pictures from the almost 2 weeks that I spent over there.

First picture i took, a shot of the small lake in the Dungen area.

"Blank Space" is a song by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift from her fifth studio album 1989 (2014). It was written by Swift, Max Martin and Shellback. The song was released to the radio by Republic Records on November 10, 2014 as the album's second single, after "Shake It Off" and is the second track on the album. Musically, "Blank Space" is an electropop song with lyrics that satirize the media's perception of Swift and her relationships.

Ryan Adams' cover version of the song was featured on his Taylor Swift tribute album, 1989 (2015). Father John Misty released a cover version of the song in the style of the rock band The Velvet Underground in 2015. The cover is a reinterpretation of Adams' version and is built on the melody of the song "I'm Waiting for the Man."




Today's tune "Blank Space" is taken from the fifteenth studio album "1989" by American singer-songwriter Ryan Adams, released digitally through his own PAX AM record label on September 21, 2015. The album is a track-by-track cover of Taylor Swift's album of the same name. It debuted at number 7 on the US Billboard 200 chart, one position ahead of Swift's 1989, which was in its 48th week on the chart.

Adams first became interested in Taylor Swift's album while coping with the collapse of his marriage to Mandy Moore. On what attracted him about Swift's album, Adams stated "There's just a joy to 1989," describing the album as "its own alternate universe." Adams initially described the album as being in the style of The Smiths. When recording the album, Adams said he found a sound somewhere between Bruce Springsteen's Darkness on the Edge of Town and The Smiths' Meat Is Murder.

Hindi Zahra & Fatoumata Diawara - Dounia


Olympic Caf√© Tour is the story of two great friends, women, artists, and Africans whose life rhymes with nomadism, openness, and freedom. Hindi Zhara has roots in Morocco and has released two acclaimed album’s, been compared to great artists such as Billie Holiday and Patti Smith and has been on stages all over the world.



Fatoumata Diawara was born in Ivory Coast to Malian parents, and has also released two albums, acted in tons of films and collaborated with names such as Bobby Womack and Mulatu Astake. They met artistically and personally twelve years ago, on the stage of the Olympic Café in Paris. After twelve years of building bridges between cultures, and spreading modern Africa through the world in their own way, they wanted to be back on stage again. During this tour they will sing songs for each occasion, as well as songs chosen for our pleasure, and of course their own.





Hindi Zahra & Fatoumata Diawara played at Way Out West on the tent scene "Linné" on Friday. Today's tune "Dounia" is a tune they do together.

Slowgold - Drömmar


SLOWGOLD is Amanda Werne's musical alias. She creates timeless, poetic stories carried out by dreamy prerrie-rock. A reviewer described the music as "falling handless with the knowledge of landing smoothly".

In 2015, SLOWGOLD released the albums "Stjärnfall" and "Glömska". Both albums were celebrated in unison by Swedish and foreign presses. You have after that seen and heard her in all possible contexts. She embraced the cover of Sonic Magazine's big Gothenburg number, where there was also a long interview with her. She sang on several songs on Freddie Wadling's last album and live there, as well as bassist Johannes Mattsson and drummer Erik Berntsson who make up the live version of SLOWGOLD.

At the end of January, Amanda's music guest was on the track and performed, among other things, a version of RATATAs classic "I dina ögon", shouted and shared by none other than Mauro Scocco.

"Drömmar" album was released on 3/2 on Playground Music and is one of the most celebrated albums this year with standing ovations from, among others, Dagens Nyheter, Sonic, Göteborgs Posten and Nöjesguiden.



SLOWGOLD was a called in at the last minute when Beth Ditto, ex front woman in the American rock band GOSSIP.

Today's tune "Drömmar" is the title tune from her last record. This clip is recorded Live from Studio Oodion / Music-A-Matic, In Gothenburg Januari 20, 2017. Enjoy!

The xx - On Hold


Monday, new week and Im still in Gothenburg, No "Record Of THe Week" this week, Im still influenced by the festival Way Out West, a few days more and hopefully in the middle of week I will do a wrap up and continue on the normal path, so stay with me and get a chance to listen to something totally different that in normal will be played on this blog.

THE XX are for sure one of very few odd and different bands in 21st century Europe. Romy, Oliver and Jamie played in Slottsskogen this weekend at Way Out West!



THE XX are an English indie band formed in 2005 in Wandsworth, London, and currently consists of Romy Madley Croft (guitar, vocals), Oliver Sim (bass, vocals) and Jamie Smith (beats, MPC, production), also known as Jamie xx. They are best known for their distinct and unique minimalistic sound that blends the likes of indie pop, indie electronic, dream pop and electronic rock and the dual vocalist setup of both Croft and Sim.

"I See You" was released in January and is the follow up to THE XXs two previous albums – "xx" and "Coexist" – which have sold over 3 million copies between them, winning a host of accolades along the way. The album marks a new era for the London trio, both sonically and in terms of process. For while xx and Coexist were both made in relative isolation in London, I See You was recorded between March 2014 and August 2016 in New York, Marfa TX, Reykjavik, Los Angeles and London, and is characterised by a more outward-looking, open and expansive approach. "I See You" is THE XX at their boldest yet, performing with more clarity and ambition than ever before.

Today's tune "On Hold" is a song by English indie pop band THE XX. It was released on 10 November 2016 as the lead single from their third studio album, "I See You" (2017). The song was produced by band member Jamie xx as well as frequent collaborator Rodaidh McDonald. The instrumental samples "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)" by HALL & OATES. Vocals are sung back-and-forth between Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim.
