Molly Nilsson

Although Molly Nilsson previously collaborated with John Maus and also has a large discography under her belt, I haven’t had the pleasure of hearing her music before today. The above song caught my attention for its macabre/romantic lyrics and minimal melody, and the other tracks I’ve listened to off of various releases are equally as wonderful. I can’t find much information about her, but some articles claim she was born in Sweden and currently lives in Berlin. I’m loving her powerful voice matched with her simple synth anthems. Her ‘These Things Take Time’ release is available on Spotify, and you can listen to/buy her other releases via her official website.

Cult Club

Sounds like there’s an amazing new project forming in Berlin…Laslo Antal of Sixth June and Sally Dige Jørgensen have teamed up to form Cult Club, a minimal synth project that sounds really promising from the two tracks I’ve heard so far. ‘All The People’ has a relaxed, almost ethereal vibe while ‘Why Do You Go?’ picks up the pace by being amazingly catchy and danceable. I can’t find any information about ordering or downloading their music, but they do have a Soundcloud and an official site that is being updated. If you like Sixth June or Sally Dige I highly recommend checking out Cult Club – it’s a great melding of their distinctive sounds.
