Lundquist, Jansson and Birde are members of the Swedish band Brainpool. Börjeson and Mildner worked together in Beagle.
Junk Musik became the first Swedish company to abandon the CD and release their first single online. The single in question is “Lady Gwendoline” by Metro Jets (David Birde and Magnus Börjeson). The song was recorded on Monday 18, mixed by Christoffer early yesterday morning and put on sale online a few hours later at the price of 10 SEK (approx. €1). Singles by Brainpool, Florian Horwath and Justin Winokur are also available via Junk Musik’s website.
Florian has released his new album, We are all gold, in Germany and now Junk Musik will publishes a digital single, When the light came around (30.04.2005). He could tour with David Birde and Jens Jansson in Austria and Germany this spring.
Yesterday, Metro Jets arrived at Christoffer Lundquist’s studio at 10 AM. They chose which song to record and got to work. At 12 PM the recording session was finished and the band returned home.
Christoffer started mixing at 7 AM today, and a couple of hours later Magnus Börjeson drove to the studio and got the file.
Now, we’re insanely happy to be able to present it to you. Metro Jets’ new single is magnificent. It’s called “Lady Gwendoline”. Metro Jets describes it as “Big pop in a big room”. We say it’s a big step for a small publishing house. Today, we have become the first Swedish company to abandon the cd.
Metro Jets single is now released. You can preview and buy it here, together with our other three new singles, from Brainpool (SWE), Florian Horwath (AU) and Justin Winokur (USA). You will find them all on our Singles page.
We have worked like crazy. We haven’t slept. But we were able to keep our deadline and the artists have recorded beautiful material. Now we will CELEBRATE. Our release party is at KB, Malmoe, 18.00 tonight. Join us! And once again, welcome to Junk.
Love, Junk staff
