A short update before Christmas

December 24, 2010

Movits! swung by Cutting Room studios a couple of days ago for the mastering of the new album.

‘Sammy Davis Jr’ will be released in January or February.
Thanks to the guys for mentioning it in a YouTube comment.

The Musikhjälpen auction ended on Sunday and the Norrlands-package went for 3550SEK ($520), which will go to prevent child trafficking.

Merry Christmas to all of you!

A lot of updates

December 18, 2010

Once again, sorry for the lack of updates. Here’s a summary of what I’ve missed in the past two months:

– BBC Radio 1 aired the Electro Swing special on November 20th. You can find it on the Downloads page or just click here. Photos can be found on Facebook and a behind the scenes video by Andy Wilkin can be found on Vimeo.
Andy also has a video from when they were at the Paradise Gardens festival.

– Zacke uploaded a video of him and Movits! doing an acoustic version of ‘Småstadsblues’ backstage before a gig which can be found on his website.
Back in October Zacke’s album was officially released in North America by the record label 59 North Recordings. An interview about it can be found on NSD.

– The Swedish radio station Notion Blend did an interview with Johan which you can listen to on YouTube.

– They will play the festival Putte I Parken next year between 6-9 July.

– They’ve shot a video for ‘Sammy Davis Jr’ and Zacke has posted some behind the scenes photos on his Flickr.

– The guys have also played a festival in Bratislava, BD Pop’s Social Club, a Swedish PR company’s opening party and Expo 2010 in Shanghai. I don’t have any links though, it seems like I lost my bookmarks for them.

– Everyone’s favorite Gothenburger, Gillis, mentioned on his blog that the album will be release in March with a 2 week long Sweden tour and then they’re heading to the States in April. Unfortunately, Gillis won’t be with the guys on the tour.

Norrlandskit

– On Thursday they played at Musikhjälpen where they’re also auctioning off a Norrlands-package which includes a Sami-hoodie, a hat, a pair of “näbb”
(beak) shoes and a pre-party with the guys.
To bid on the package go here. It ends on Sunday at noon.

While at Musikhjälpen they performed two songs and a late night freestyle jam with Frej Larsson (Slagsmålsklubben, Maskinen etc.), Dida & Timbuktu.
