While writing the cover story on The Tough Alliance in Gothenburg, Sweden recently, we were also lucky enough to spend time with their Sincerely Yours label signees Air France, who taught us that drinking warm beer in public and eating tapas everyday is what makes Sweden great, NOT universal healthcare and a top notch education system. We thank them for that. We also learned of Sincerely Yours' newest signing, Nordpolen, whose lyrics so affected TTA that they requested he sing in Swedish so as not to lose any impact in translation. Nordpolen's new album is due on September 24th, and because Sincerely Yours is run totally out of pocket, TTA is asking fans how many copies they should press. "435 or 466? or maybe 632?
we're thinking maybe 1300," they say. "Closest wins a night with Air France, a couple of 88:an or whatever." Let's make it 50,000 and all go get drunk in Sweden! Just email your guestimate to firstname.lastname@example.org. The video above is for Nordpolen's "Skimret," the video after the jump is preview of "vet inte om jag vill," and, just because we like you, here is Windsurf's (an F55 Gen F) mellow ass remix of The Tough Alliance's "Neo Violence," the single of which will be released very soon with remixes from Laidback Luke and Woolfy, but not this one.
