is a Swedish pop singer and musician. starting out in the punk band Candysuck she only rose to fame when she went solo in 2002. She won two Swedish Grammys in 2006 and now lives in New York.
«The Tear Collector» was released in 2009 on Sugartoy Recordings.
I must say that I think the Beatles are highly overrated. But okay, «A Day In The Life».
In New York, 2005. Perfect oneness. I laughed and cried for 2 hours straight.
Any thing with any rock journalist boy band like Fleet Foxes or similar (whatever group overhyped bearded men that’s the flavor of the moment).
I sat in front of the TV and recorded it onto my tape recorder with the TV speakers as the only source of sound. You can hear my sister yelling in the background. Later on I got the album for Christmas.
I wish someone had managed to write the equivalent of Håkan Hellström’s «Känn ingen sorg för mig Göteborg», the ultimate Gothenburg song. But it has yet to happen. I think it has to do with the fact that almost every musician you’ve ever heard from Stockholm is born somewhere else. So our feelings for the city are all too ambivalent.
Summer of 88. I put my long distance running shoes to rest and discovered life.
There’s no escaping it. It’s the best trick up my sleave when DJing.
Because I play it at least 10 times a night every time I DJ.
Depends on the season. But since autumn is coming up soon: «The Tempest Suite».
Written by Jimmy Webb. Perfection.
I moved from Stockholm to New York a year and a half ago because I felt the city never changed. I led the same kind of life that I had the last 12 years. Maybe we went to new places but the people still felt the same to me.
Now, that I don’t actually live there anymore, I somehow manage to see new sides to it every time I visit, and go into adventures all the time. So my conclusion is that you should limit your intake of Stockholm. But as long as you keep your dose low you’ll be fine and it can be very romantic as long as you have your everyday life some place else.
Although she is a solo artist.
Centralbadet. Great Art Nouveau.
When I still had a regular job it was of course the Fridays. Now it’s all a blur.
Chinese food at «Ho’s», locally grown organic stuff at «Street», or a luxurious meal at «Teatergrillen» (if someone else is picking up the bill).
A basement that I shared with my best friends. One big open space and one small separate room (more like a closet) aptly namned the F •••-room.
Maybe a gardener at Bergianska trädgården. Or the person who runs the Butterfly house in Hagaparken. Amazing place.
The central station.
«G» by Staffan Hildebrand. It’s from 1983 and it’s about these three friends, who have just left the compulsory school, and now they consider themselves grown-up and mature, being 16 years old. During the summer holiday they also get a bit of experience of the world: Robban becomes a full-time drug addict, Alexander plays in a rock band but leaves it and Kim is desperate to get the girl of his dreams.
No one I know is from there. But Åsa Jacobsson, my piano player, is one of the best persons who lives there now. Historically, Sigrid Hjerten the painter did some great art and seemed like a very interesting charachter.
«Ho’s». Asian cuisine at Hornsgatan 151.
That’s for me to know etcetera.
Don’t know. I guess I lived there for too long!
I don’t like sports. Only horse jumping and figure skating and Stockholm don’t have their own teams for that.
Drottninggatan, but only the part north of Kungsgatan.
