There's a Razzia going on

Hello you! Guess what? Stockholm's Razzia Records have a fantastic-looking compilation album, There's A Razzia Going On, coming out on June 18th. Just have a butcher's at the goodies on offer:

01. Hello Saferide - I was definitely made for these times
02. Adiam Dymott - Memory loss
03. Konie - My Life Is Shit But I Am Funky (remix)
04. I Are Droid - Blood & Ether
05. Firefox AK vs Laid -Once I was like you
06. Maia Hirasawa - Melody
07. Tripoli - Walk on
08. Säkert! - Det var tre månader sedan idag
09. They Live By Night - Meaningless repair
10. Timo Räisänen - Spill your beans
11. Svenska Kürkan - Besatt
12. The Plan - Stay Awhile
13. Jonna Lee - I wrote this song
14. Mange Schmidt feat. Thomas Rusiak & Eye N I - Håll käften del
15. Thunder Express - Switch
16. Tellevika feat. Firefox AK - Eric
17. Ebbot Lundberg & Mattias Bärjed - Coming down cold

The Hello Saferide track - indubitably one of the best UK-released singles of 2007 - would be worth the admission fee alone, but with Firefox AK, Maia Hirasawa, Timo Räisänen, Jonna Lee and Annika Norlin's side-project Säkert also present, this album just has to be a very good thing indeed.

More exciting Hello Saferide news: Annika's announced on the HS website that the band've been busy recording a new album, which "will be released September-ish". As if that wasn't enough on its own, it turns out the album's being produced by Swedish indie pop legend Andreas Mattsson of Popsicle, Sweet Chariots and Andreas Mattsson fame (and who I wrote a gushing tribute to in this entry)!

So anyway, it's all good, to borrow a phrase from that nice Sarah Assbring lady. And, while we're here, let's have some classic Hello Saferide and Popsicle by way of a celebration. Why not!

Popsicle - Histrionics mp3 (left click - available for a week)
