September witnessed the release of possibly the best Nordic album of the year – Jens Lekman's I Know What Love Isn't, while Victoria Bergsman's Taken By Trees unveiled its third LP Other Worlds. Other Worlds is out 2nd October. You can listen to the LP in full here.

One of my personal favourites of the year is the Swedish, Östersund-based trio World Tour, whose dreamy electronic pop have garnered a lot of attention this year. Back in April they released their debut EP Believe via Cascine and in June they followed it with stand-alone single 'Forever Tonight' on Emotion. A couple of weeks back World Tour unveiled the video for 'Forever Tonight' and it's a beautifully shot piece filmed in Funäsdalen – the scenic home of World Tour.

The Berlin-based Norwegian electropop songstress Sandra Kolstad just released her new album (Nothing Lasts) Forever on Trust Me and if you haven't checked her out yet this is your chance to do so. Kolstad's electronic soundscapes are catchy enough to compete with the very best in Scandinavian pop, but there's also an experimental side which keeps it all from becoming too sugar-coated. Watch the video for her single 'The Well (We Will Change It All)'.

One of the most popular artists to feature in this column is Stockholm electropop act Faye - the collaboration of vocalist Faye, aka Fanny Hamlin, and production duo Montauk; and this month they were kind enough to offer up a new song. The song in question is called 'Mad Dog' and should keep fans interested until their next single 'Breathe Out', is released in October.

The Danish bunny-lovers in Sleep Party People, the project of Brian Batz, released their excellent debut LP We Were Drifting On A Sad Song earlier this year and now they've unveiled the video for their latest single 'Gazing At The Moon'. Make sure to watch the video below, and catch them live if they happen to tour close to you – I know I will.

Now here's a genre that hasn't received much attention in this column, but in case you didn't know – there's lots of great hard rock and metal coming out of the Nordics – Gothenburg hard rock act Graveyard being one of the best. As their sound is something of a mix of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin you'd think they're just a revival act but that's far from the truth. Graveyard are set to release their third LP Lights Out in late October and they've recently released the first single from it; 'Goliath'. Watch the video for it below.

That's it for this month. As usual we've got a bunch of bonuses for you including the debut single from INGRID signee Woodlands, a new club-ready single from Icona Pop, a weird video from Stockholm punks Holograms and the video for YAST's brilliant debut single 'Believes'.
