Albums on repeat

Two albums I’m really into right now are Citizen’s Youth and Makthaverskan’s Makthaverskan II.

It took me a while before I gave Citizen a listen. I sort of wish I had done it earlier. I had seen their name all over the place (i.e. the internet/in magazines) but never really got to the point where I felt interested in what sort of music they play. However, I’m glad they’re in my life now. On repeat. Youth is an interesting record. Very emotional. So what kind of music do they play? Well, I’d say melodic hardcore with lovely Brand New vibes.

If you want to check out Citizen, today is your lucky day! They’ve got a bunch of free tracks available for download on Last.fm. Download and enjoy.

“So what’s up with this Makthaverskan thing?” some of you might ask. I guess if you’re not a Swede, their band name might be a little weird to you. Makthaverskan could be directly translated as The Ruler. Someone who has the power, that is. Makt is Swedish for power. Makthaverskan suggests that it’s a female ruler; otherwise one would say “makthavare” (for a male ruler). Well, enough language talk. Makthaverskan are a Swedish post punk band and they are amazing. That’s pretty much all you need to know. Great female vocals with a perfect amount of teenage angst and anger.

Makthaverskan currently have 11 914 listeners on Last.fm.
