Here’s the next installment of alphabet soup, now artists and groups starting with the letter Y. X will follow shortly – although it was a pain to compile. Starting with one of the first tunes to feature ‘fuzz’ guitar – Beach Boys’ “Little Honda” performed by the masters of fuzz Yo La Tengo.

We’re approaching #100, so I thought, what could be better than dedicating the last 25 numbers to the 25 letters of the alphabet? I’ve introduced a new series of lists on HYMN, compiling songs by artists and bands on each letter. Starting at the end, since X, Y, and Z are always the hardest – I present Part Z here.
The concept is that I simply browse though my folders of music files on my old harddrive and pick songs from each letter – stuff that I haven’t heard in a while or things that may be of interest to the general public. Check out the article on HYMN for the full tracklisting, including comments on each song (in Swedish).
Here’s a promotional mix for the Way Out West festival in Gothenburg, where Woods and White Fence are playing this week. Originally put together for an article on HYMN.

The Record Turnover podcast is back, and long overdue. That’s why this one is a round-up of some of the best garage and punk releases of the year so far. Some great albums and singles have come out this spring, on labels like State, Castle Face, Burger of course, Randy, Trouble In Mind, Hozac and Famous Class. Two bands to watch are The Magnetic Mind who are one of the most promising new garage/psych acts from the UK (along with The Exploding Sound Machine), and Thing which is a new project from Reatards-member and Lover! main man Rich Crook. La Luz have released a new LP this month, and Negative Scanner and Sheer Mag I have already written about here or on HMYN. A review of the amazing Uh Bones LP is coming soon as well!

This contribution comes from Marcus Cawood and was put up to promote last week’s Radio Syd in Malmö, the first in 2015 and the last at longtime venue Moriska Paviljongen. The music is an edited live mixdown from Cawood’s old club Reaction. I went to this particular night 10 years ago, when Alessandro (Lavarone Mod Holiday) was the guest DJ, and last week Alessandro came down from Gothenburg to play again. It was an amazing set, if perhaps not as well attended as that night at Panora. The venue known as Panora back then closed years ago, but a couple of weeks ago the new Panora cinema opened a few blocks from where I live. This time the venue does not include a club room, sadly.
The mix in itself is edited down from the full 4 hour set. There are few dropouts here and there, due to microphone action. I hope you can put up with that, because it’s a brilliant set with many classics of the scene, then as now.
Here’s a mix me, Joakim, David and Alessandro made for the MOD-EST weekender, now approaching fast. We picked 4 tracks each, my selections are Beautiful Garden, Del-Vetts, Karo and The Koobas of course. I’m very proud that this mix made it to #4 in the Mixcloud Garage chart (contrary to what is says on the Mixcloud page) and #13 in the RnB chart, during the 7 days that new mixes are trending.
