In 2019, it will be exactly 30 years since Sweden’s Neneh Cherry released her debut ‘Raw Like Sushi’ (with the famous worldwide hits ‘Buffalo Stance’ and ‘Manchild’) upon the world. While most artists want to continue the success they already have, Neneh Cherry has reinvented herself every time. She has been working with electro-producer Four Tet since her album ‘Blank Project’ (from 2014), just recently releasing ‘Broken Politics’. Her fifth solo album is without a doubt the most personal one to date. On it, she doesn’t shy away from themes like abortion, refugees or the right to bear arms. Rolling Stone, The Times, MOJO and Q all extol the virtues of the album with raving ****-reviews. Welcome back Neneh!
A Liveurope concert:The first pan-European initiative supporting concert venues in their efforts to promote emerging European music.WHAT'Freaky folkpop' with a 'soulful feel' and 'Floating Harmonies'. The latter was, not coincidentally, also the title of Júníus Meyvant debut CD two years ago. He hails from Iceland, more specifically from the island Heimaey in the Westman Archipelago, but is now once again ready for another musical trip 'Across the Borders'. That is also the name of his latest CD (out on Record Records) and the new tour. THE OPINION OF THE AB PROGRAMMER?Regarding his previous visit in September 2016: ' Great show, by the way, and Júníus is a very funny dude, stand-up quality even… The entire Club was having laughing fits between the songs. Fine music, a real stayer.' According to MDB, no longer at AB these days.

Brahms inspires Zemlinsky
Hyukoh is proof that there’s more coming out of Korea than just overproduced K-pop. This indie foursome from Seoul are the forerunners of the local alternative scene and they’re ready to take over the world. They say to be inspired by bands like The Whitest Boy Alive and The Beatles. There’s no lack of great guitar parts.
