Hi. I’m half dead after a 40 minute run in the heat. Thus I keep things simple with an album by Ray LaMontagne. It was added in the latest Spotify update. Enjoy!

Evening. Two days ago I had no idea Shpongle existed. Yesterday a couple of people expressed their happiness over Shpongle on the official Spotify blog. And today Afront wrote about them as well. I got the message. I listened. And I liked it. This is a wonderful album. Enjoy!

Morning. From yesterdays Spotify update, this is really beautiful music by Swedish composer Björn Olsson (he was once a founding member of The Soundtrack Of Our Lives). It’s hard to choose a genre for The Crayfish, but I’ll guess a combination of classical and folk will have to do. Enjoy!

Hello. From todays Spotify update: seven more new releases from various genres. Note that not all of these were released this week, but they should at least be new in Spotify. Enjoy!

(Today was the first time I noticed the new Pet Shop Boys album being available in Sweden. Could be wrong about that though…)

Hello. Todays Spotify update was a really good one. I’ve made plenty of finds that I will present to you over the weekend. But first over to some fine new releases. Not all of these are out today, but all of them have been released in 2009. And, most importantly, all of them are very good which means this is recommended listening. Enjoy!

(I’ll take a break now and be back tonight with some more new albums. Don’t forget to check out the new playlist, Spotinews 022.)
