GBG belongs to you

I don't love Air France, but I do love Göteborg and would move there in an instant if I could, so that's more than enough reason to endorse AF member Joel Karlsson's personal recommendation list for the city:
I'm not familiar with every place he recommends, but I wholeheartedly back Solrosen as one of the best, most friendly and affordable places we ate on our recent trip.

MP3: C.Aarmé - Bodybuilding

On October 14 the mighty C.Aarmé return with their third full-length album "World music" via the label Spegel. But they won't be issuing said album on a plain old boring CD... oh no, it will come in 10 different limited edition formats of 50 copies each starting with a disc mounted on a mirror and now, something that looks like a wooden cube. What is it? What does it mean? Will it ship flat Ikea-style? Inquiring minds want to know...

What exactly is "World music"?

World Music is the name of our new album. It's music from us to the world.

I understand you had some difficulty finding a label for the new album... why do you think that is? And then, after searching all over, why exactly did you end up with Spegel?

The difficulty wasn't so much finding a label as finding the right one. We didn't want to end up in the constrains and rigidness of a typical "big label" contract. And we certantly didn't want to be number 50 on someones priority list. So we set out finding people who understod and shared our ideas and views. Someone to work with, rather than against. Once we struck up a conversation with Spegel, the choice was easy.

How exactly does C.Aarmé fit in with Sweden's current music scene, if at all? Feel free to play up any/all connections to the hyped West Coast sounds of Studio/TTA/Air France/etc.

C.Aarmé is a force of nature. We are elegant and yet brutal. The bands you mention above are great, some of them friends of ours, but I couldn't tell you how we fit in to the scene. Fitting in is nothing we're concerned about.

Whose idea was the limited edition formats? Are all 10 planned and ready to go?

That was Spegel's idea. "World music" will be released in 10 different editions, limited to 50 copies each. Edition #2 is up on right now so I guess edition #1 sold out. Once one has sold out a new one comes online. I don't think all ten editions are ready to go, but you should really ask Spegel about that.

The last time I ordered something from Spegel, it was intercepted and destroyed. What do you think will happen this time if/when I order your new album?

"World music" is a bomb. Stay alarmed!
