Blue Monday is the Swedish podcast for electronic and goth music. Regularly in Swedish, this feed contains our english-language episodes. We keep track of everything going on in electronic Sweden, and interview the people who make it happen.
In this weird world we are living in right now we figured you need something to brighten your day. In our 53rd episode we got to hangout with Laura Morgan also known as Livmødr. We spoke about her growing up on the Isle of Man, her obsession with keytars and we also got an insight in her creative process. We’ve got new stuff sent in by our listeners and a world premiere. Boot up your synthesizers, be safe and check your quarantine... It’s a Blue monday.
Join us when we visit the bestest little festival in Sweden - Kalabalik - deep in the dark forests of Småland - a place we call Swedens Texas. We chat with Rex Pistols, Avi Roig, and Minuit Machine.
We are back with an English episode to give outsiders a chance to listen to our interview with Covenant's Eskil Simonsson, and to discover new Swedish electronic music. Eskil tells us about Covenant's humble beginnings, what Futurepop really is, all about Fieldworks Exkursion EP, and upcoming tour and album plans. With music by Minuit Machine, The Human League, Kill Shelter and much, much more.
Icelandic postpunk female trio Kaelan Mikla were in Stockholm for a live show, and we got the opportunity to sit down for a minute and talk about Iceland, music, Robert Smith and much more.
We are back with a rare English episode, in which we talk about the magical little electronic music festival Kalabalik på Tyrolen in southern Sweden. On the bill were, among others Dive, Visitor, Ploho, Vanligt Folk, Position Parallèle, and the very first performance of Iceland act Hatari outside their native icy island.
We meet up with Gertrud Stein, Alison Lewis, and David (Luminance) for interviews.
In our first ever English episode, we have a living legend in our studio: Douglas McCarthy, legendary vocalist in Nitzer Ebb, Fixmer/McCarthy and most recently Black Line. We discuss his influences, what he was up to during Nitzer Ebb’s hiatus, and how skateboarding was behind the formation of the band. We also met up with Vile Electrodes after their gig in Stockholm and heard about their plans.
