Does that make any less powerful and lovely? Hardly. This amazing short film, directed by Joanna Nordahl, is just another feather in an already […]

John Moose (SE) – “Dragsjöberg”

John Moose - Dragsjöberg

John Moose is more than “just” a band from Sweden — he is the collective alter-ego of the 5-piece folk outfit, the main character in the band’s musically narrated stories about escaping the ambivalence between civilization and nature. Following their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2015, songs from John Moose’s latest EP “O” are […]
