Hello Diego! Yes, you can contact me via mobedi at live dot com. I think you already know why I haven’t put contact information here. An inbox on the verge of explosion from mediocrity and irrelevant newsletters. So I decided to attack internet instead of being attacked by it. But if you happen to have or know of any music that is in the same vibe as the blog, I would surely love to hear it.


この曲は、昨年12月にリリースされました。私たちは 食品まつり について多くを知らない。しかし、私は彼が日本からのものであることを知っている。

The song was "SHI ZEN HO DOU"

I find myself in outré atmospheres in Stockholm. It is nowhere close to New York and London where celebrities and artists get surrounded by cameras and girls flashing tits for signatures. All the big names are probably sitting next to you in Tunnelbanan (metro) tactfully skimming over Aftonbladet pages or getting lost in a Netflix stream on their phones. And if you have ever tried to spot me, I was the guy scrolling up and down my Spotify playlist. And good luck with that!

The young man who just got out in Mariatorget was Axel Willner aka The Field who was reading a review of his own Cupid’s Head. The feminist woman nodding in agreement to old pensioner’s coming week weather forecast was Karin Dreijer Andersson. Björn Yttling of Peter Björn and John was seen in Djurgården sidewalks jugging the sweat out of his Cornelis Vreeswijk shirt. All these gentle quiet people just passed you by before you knew what you have missed. And even I barely tried to wear a hunter’s eye. You don’t look for them. You don’t destroy their summer house front porches for pictures and TMZ propaganda. Sweden simply does not work like that.

And the same goes for the folks behind 80s nostalgia shower of Mitch Murder. Interceptor, their latest album is going to see the light of day on July 29th. This is not going to be the sort of anachronism you relate to with John Foxx or Leyland Kirby. It is a merry-go-round of longings for the A-team heyday, Rex Smith cruising for Street Hawk and coming back home from work switching on the telly for The Cosby Show.

This is simply the most accomplished work from the Stockholm gentlemen. A neon botanical garden of the immaculate greed of grabbing your NES joysticks to Mega Man and dancing your weekend away to A Flock of Seagulls. There is no accurate way of fully presenting Interceptor without a bucketload of references. By why is that a problem when you do not even need a verbose ghost to give a text version of it to you? When was the last time the inferior text could embody music? You just have to reconceive your very own variant of Interceptor. So pre-order it here maybe?

There are many ways to deal with a leaking. One straightforward one is to open the text tap of this place to flow every time a single thing happens on a record label or if any of my favorite people drops a remix of another favorite artist or does a Rihanna cover. And that will turn Ghost FM into a buzzblog, an NME Radar with one-gazillionth of readers. And that will be the kind of post-apoc oneiric creature I am not. So I’d like to put tracks in lab environments in which you are equipped with various listening tools: the Moog percentage calculator and the synth density machine among others. Also if there is a collaboration in your remix, we have measurements in our lab for a feature-to-feature analogy. So you needn’t worry about anything you hear here. What you have to push play on is ghost-proof signed, sealed, delivered, affirmative.

One thing we cannot resist is a debut from Le Cassette, though. This is where all our calculations picnic for a while for it passes any early measurement nimbly. And in the 80s delikatessen Telefuture record label has vetted for us in all its neon blue gracefulness, the latest release heralds a tubular weekend spent in San Luis Obispo in black leather miniskirts.

Le Cassette’s Left To Our Own Devices has been in the making for two years. It’s a sort of lost future Bryan Ferry would have imagined. Like many others I tipped a toe in the single “Electric Paradise” for its hit capacity with a dip of M83’s “Kim & Jessie” in a Cut Copy bowl. But then I was electrolyzed  by “Digital Power”, the immediate retro boom after the intro. There is a bit of everything for everyone who’s in their club list. I finally opted for the instrumental “Fighter” for it is the sound of a rebirth to all the nocturnal Sega Mega Drive games I jammed in my console slot. This is definitely a very likely candidate for end-year lists as it’s getting harder and harder to skip these tracks as they smoothly rotate heavier and heavier. That is quite an achievement for a 62-min album.
