Taken By Trees

Taken by Trees is the latest project for artist Victoria Bergsman from Stockholm, Sweden. Bergsman was singer-songwriter for The Concretes for eleven years before deciding to leave the band in July 2006. The debut album Open Field was recorded in six days; it's packed with stark, delicate pop melodies. Victoria has the sort of voice that stops you in your tracks and demands you listen. The album features Peter Bjorn and John's John Eriksson, Electrelane's Verity Sussman and Andreas Söderström (of Ass and Tape) on guitar.

Lana Del Rey

She's Lizzy Grant – a.k.a. Lana Del Rey. The 24-year-old New York native may be a relative unknown who is yet to officially release any music but such is the emotional resonance of her velvety, dulcet tones we reckon you’ll be hearing much more from her in the months and years to come. Born in the rural town of Lake Placid in New York State, Lana spent her formative years moving between Alabama, New Jersey and New York City before more recently relocating to London.

Lilium

"Lilium" (meant to mean "fortress") started as a solo-project of Pascal Humbert, 16 Horsepower's bass player. Under this moniker he made the album "Transmission of All the Good-Byes", a mainly instrumental creation, which was released in 2000. Lilium now is a duo-project after 16 Horsepower drummer Jean-Yves Tola joined Humbert. As a double act they have so far released one album, "Short Stories", which came out in 2003. Humbert worked on "Transmission Of All The Good-Byes" from 1984 until 2000. The album was released at the end of October 2000 on Glitterhouse Records.
