Sandy Mouche 2004 Summer Gigs

* Kroksjöfestivalen, Småland 2004 · 07 · 07

The lovely Swedish band, Sandy Mouche plays gentle indiepop with a twist in Bastionen. The group flirts with their view of the idyllic French; The Riviera, red wine, worn out yellow piano keys on a detuned piano and warm coloured colduroy suits. The beautiful singer Helena in front made a great impression on the many Danes, that probably had never witnessed SM's sweet sweet brand of pop music. Several songs were in French, which was a nice touch. For some reason girls singing in French is just, well, a really nice touch.

Johnny Bråttom Records is putting out a new comp called Höstmusik (fall music), the second in their series of seasonal themed collections. The song "Notes and bills", by Sandy Mouche, is included.

In 2001, Viktor Banke, Adam Svanell and a couple of other friends started organising concerts under the name "Trevligt med rockmusik" in the small town of Kristianstad. In just a year, Adam and Viktor came up with the idea of releasing records as well, and Johnny Bråttom Records was formed. Trevligt med rockmusik fell asleep after little more than two years, as both Adam and Viktor had moved out of Kristianstad, but Johnny Bråttom lived on. Johnny Bråttom's first release, a co-operation with Trevligt med rockmusik, was the compilation cd "Svensk populärmusik vol 1". It featured Swedish artists like Slagsmålsklubben, Dr Higgins, Laakso, Thomas Denver Jonsson, Svenska akademien and Björn Kleinhenz. Adam and Viktor continue to release Swedish independent music in different genres.

Höstmusik also includes songs by Wichita Linemen and Boy Omega.

Here's the tracklist:
01. 50 Hertz - Vill du gifta dig med mig (och min bror)?
02. André featuring Habib - Whatyousayin'
03. Boy Omega - East
04. Suburban Kids with Biblical Names - Trumpets and violins
05. sandy mouche - Notes and bills
06. Talking to Teapots - The great summer that never came
07. Bremen Brotröster GmbH - Alright all night
08. Wichita Linemen - For all the marbles

It's a trap

"Notes & Bills" was born after a drive when I heard a r'n'b tune on the radio. Martinique wrote the cosy bridge. It is often like that, I know I want to sing and record but there is a big gloomy pile of everyday musts and useless words between me and the future dream. I just want to ignore the pile but it's hard. This song helps me sink into the dark red velvet sofa which is the gravelled road to the Sandy Mouche village.
Helena Josefsson (Sandy Mouche)
