Swedish bands playing SXSW
Anyone remotely interested in music can’t have missed that South by Southwest (in Austin, Texas, US) is taking place in a couple of weeks. Every year I’ve looked at the line-up and sighed, wanting to go to, since there are usually about a million great bands playing. This year they’ve got a bunch of great Swedish artists performing there, but also some less great. Here’s a list of the good ones:

The Concretes – always cosy!

Jens Lekman – best Swedish artist in the world!

Lykke Li – best new Swedish female artist!

The LK – underrated and overlooked, and fantastic!

Peter Moren – Peter from Peter, Bjorn and John. Not a big fan of PB&J but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. He’s produced some amazing music lately.

Robyn – everyone’s favourite Swedish electro artist!

Shout Out Louds – everyone’s favourite Swedish quirky indie rockers!

The Tough Alliance – everyone’s favourite Swedish electro duo!

And these are the not so very good Swedish bands playing SXSW in 2008:

Avatar – some metal …

Graveyard – boring bluesy rock

Ida Maria – not a fan

Kristoffer Ragnstam – dull singer / songwriter

Sabaton – hilarious old school heavy metal - listen to "Attero Dominatus"

The Soundtrack of Our Lives – not my cup of tea

Tiger Lou – he’s ok, just a bit boring
