A cracker ... The Lumineers


The big-boss and sound guru with the freshest ears in the industry came in to listen to the new LINN KIKO Steaming system that just won:

Daddy: So Alvin we are using ''Shark Story'' played on the PS3 connected to KIKO with HDMi. What do you think, does it sound good?
Alvin: Yes
Daddy: Your good friends with Maeve O'Boyle whom just released Her new amazing album, Being Patient. Lets stream the 24Bit studio master over our network. Does it sound good?
Alvin: MMMM
Daddy: Does it sound best?

So there you have it ... LINN KIKO System is the best!

Sometimes my music taste surprises even me!

I love this recording ... I have to say 'the-recording',  ... as it would be ridiculous to enjoy the ''cheezy'' covers this girl sings', RIGHT?

Ok I admit it ... I'm totally into it! Brilliant, extremely honest singing (allot of re-verb at times, few other tricks but that's OK) ... great!

BETH! Listen Here ...

It's hard not to love Neil Young', but what? really?

I got this from Gilads (LINN VD) Blogg.Neil Young is basically releasing a PONO, a small, bright yellow 'old-ipod' looking device that plays 24 Bit. I gotta hold with Gilad on this one ... Has Neil lost it? 

Did Neil totally miss the 24 Bit revolution that He Himself played such a part in and most importantly the point of it? Has he not discovered HD tracks - - services that are exploding onto the market ... not to mention Apple whom will soon release 24 BIT! Does He not understand the range of devices that already play 24 Bit & the quantity of the ones on route ...

The Youtube klipp is now blocked ... & a good thing too for Neil whom just sounds crazy! What? Really? Stop eating the Hash cakes Neil & come do a gig in Gothenburg instead :)

Nice to see my old Mate Andy has returned to LINN ...

It must have been almost 5 years ago that Peoples & Schmidt first started selling LINN HiFi in Gothenburg, Sweden. That means I have known Andrew Oattes, whom was working as the key account manager for LINN at the time, about the same length of time.

Andy was later snapped up by SONOS to develop their business with amazing targets like ''you must double your business year on year''. The bill boards all over town are evidence of their aggressive marketing led approach to sales and their success is undeniable.

With that experience nicely tucked into Andy's CV, I warmly welcome His return to LINN and am really looking forward to working with Him again.

Welcome back to Andy Oattes, a lovely guy who looks in one direction ... forward!

Remember this little fellow Andy? Anyone for Marstrand?

Well I still have the boat, though of course now with better sound, but I have this new little baby to take care of now as well ...

WAl! Check this out ... If I don't get a Baby ... I'm there!

Great News Just In ...

Were you at our 'LIVE @ Peoples & Schmidt'session two weeks ago when we had Maeve O'Boyle supported by Ryan MacDowell playing live in the shop? If you were not .. well you missed 'something'! If you were you will love this news ..

It was no surprise to read Maeve had been interviewed by Scottish TV just the other other day (Read More) ... she is an established international artist, on route to becoming an international super star.

It was however very refreshing to see Her prodigy Ryan, whom started life as an artist at Maeve's music school when He was just 15 (Now 19), getting some attention ... and this is no small attention. 

Jim Gellatly is a seriously influential DJ and can start off an artists career. He has not only played Ryan on his radio show but has placed Ryans track on this weeks Pod Cast and featured Ryan's cover art on the front of the Podcast site. 

Great stuff Ryan!

Ryan's new album is already recorded & the single to be released prio…

Cont'd from yesterdays 'Get Running' ... blunder on the music choice ...

Last night I heard on TV that Soundgarden are starting up again, going to release more music, opening their web-site again and no doubt doing some tours.


Perfect for my 'Get Running' session, I though! Love Soundgarden ... Chris Cornell is pretty cool (with exception of ground zero song on latest album ,,, that's another story) ... they are not quite up there with Pearl Jam but they are up there!

Problem is that there has been Gallery evenings at the shop, HiFi shows, LIVE @ Peoples & Schmidt with Maeve ... and so on & not enough running! This mornings run was tough ... too tough to listen!

Grunge was a bad choice ... good for swinging your long hair side to side to a four count but not for running! Big blunder!

Great band though & can't wait to get my ticket if they tour here!

Start running ... 5 of the albums that accompanied me over the last weeks

In the bad shape I was in, there was only one solution, the Granny-APP 'Get Running' which tells you when to walk, run, start & stop and builds up from a gentle walk to 30 minutes of running over 8 weeks.

The best thing is you can listen to music while you run. The volume reduces occasionally when a very nice ladies voice gives instruction and then returns you to your album ... Great!

So here are my Album tips ...

U2. The Joshua Tree ...

Starts off slowly (like me) with an aura of expectation ... like you are floating, building up to something ... on your way ... perhaps a great journey? Great album ... builds up perfectly then leaves you on a high after that first run ... even the warm down is perfectly timed to the last song which leaves you feeling righteous  ''Mothers of the dissapeared''

Blue Öyster Cult

Loud enough to block out the sound of your heavy breathing, great sound to distract you ... they can play and sing and it's just enough rock to keep up…
