MML: Two Artists (SE)

Now that we have some of your undivided attention (as a result of a certain picture below) you can now take a serious listen to two more artists we found to be well worth your time to check out. Our original feature, MML: Female Four, could actually have been Female Six had I known about these additional musicians at the time. Both women are originally from Sweden with one now living in Germany. They are completely non-related in both sound and presentation but for some reason we decided to post them together. I don't think it makes much of a difference since both musicians are equally amazing in their own right. Please visit the links below for more info. This is more highly recommended music from MML and a great way to start the week.


Komon is the music project of Antonia Pehrson (guitar, organ, casio, melodica) who, from what I gathered, is originally from Sweden and lived in the UK until recently moving to Berlin, Germany. After listening to this song (prior to visiting the Komon MySpace page) I was already certain a giant Claudia Gonson influence was present, so when I saw Magnetic Fields listed under her influences I was oh-so impressed. Antonia's voice is subtle, sweet and makes me want to find my old Future Bible Heroes discs for an afternoon marathon. If you would like to hear more, check out the above MySpace link. If you contact her directly, you can purchase the most recent EP Silly Girl. She has been making music since 2001 and everything else I've heard is equally good.

MP3: Are We Friends

AK Von Malmborg

AK Von Malmborg is a performance artist, composer and vocalist from Sweden. If I were forced to make an immediate comparison, the words Kate Bush might slowly leave my lips while reaching for an opera guide and putting out a cigarette. What does this mean? There is a certain formal, yet reckless quality that accompanies her beautifully unique vocal tone and I am completely smitten by it. For another song from her musical project AK-MOMO and information on upcoming music and performance dates, visit the AK Von Malmborg MySpace page. While there, you will find that she is part of the one hour opera SORELLO which begins touring Italy April 26. She also has a video about milk? MML wants to know more about this video!!

MP3: Rosenblad
