The cover for Metro Jets’ new EP is finished. It turned out nice, I think. But then Metro-Magnus listened closely to the master track and found that one guitar was missing, so the EP will first be released next week - with the correct number of guitars. We’re discussing something interesting: recording the new Metro Jets songs in a way that lets the readers of this blog follow the whole process – in audio and in writing. That would be something, wouldn’t it?
Even though MONTAG MANIA's base is Stockholm, the music contains elements from many different places and times : the brazilian psycadelic sixties (tropicalia), the Barcelonian Mestizo-scene , punk, post-punk, alternative rock, rythm.... The music was recorded during three years at various places in Stockholm, Sweden and in Lima. Isabel and Fredrik spent their time in Peru hanging out with friends, recording sounds and writing almost half of the songs that are on the record.
Visit Montag Mania's space. They are the aquaintance between all these different worlds and cultures that exists simoultaneously, side by side all over the planet and in the still so segregated Stockholm. A meeting that still hasnt occured yet in Sweden like in other cosmopolitan cities like Barcelona, Paris or Recife.
