has announced the signing of Den Svenska Tystnaden and will be releasing a series of three EPs from the band over the course of 2010. Up first is "Större avstånd högre spänning" on April 30, to be followed by "Långsamma repliker all tid i världen" (August 30) and "Utsikter från botten" (December 30). And for the trivia-minded, the band features label head Magnus Bjerkert's brother John Bjerkert, whose resume includes stints with ARC labelmates David & the Citizens/David Fridlund as well as Emil Jensen.

Swedish expat-cum-Austin resident David Fridlund (ex-David & the Citizens) has finished his new solo album "Some day, eventually, in the future..." and plans to release it in the very near future.
David Fridlund (David & the Citizens) may have moved to Austin, but that's not gonna stop the Swedish release of his new album which will be out in January, via Fashionpolice if I remember correctly.
David Fridlund (David & the Citizens) is celebrating 10 years as a musician by self-releasing a limited edition compilation of demo recordings. Go here for details: http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendId=47112426&blogId=496264856

David Fridlund is officially putting an end to David & the Citizens: http://davidfridlund.webblogg.se/2008/august/david-the-citizens-forever.html
Look for new material to be issued under his given name in the near future, I believe a split 7" with his wife Sara Culler is coming this fall via Fashion Police.
This is the first release from David & the Citizens since all the members bar David Fridlund left rather suddenly, early last year. What made me like David & the Citizens in the first place was the nerve and the raw intensity of their songs. This release is somewhat lacking in those qualities and feels a bit like a watered down version of the real thing. Only one of the songs connect with me, and that's the last one (of the four) "Anything" which is an effortless song with great lyrics accompanied a simple piano. I'm very keen to see what David Fridlund will come up with next, but hopefully it'll be something much better than this.
You can download the EP for free here.
