Swedish NONONO is Tobias Jimson (Astma), Michel Flygare (Rocwell) and Stina Wäppling. The trio recently released ‘Lost Song’.
Talking about their new single, Stina Wäppling said, “Tobias played the track to Lost Song for me in the car when I had just returned from India and I felt it sounded like India and it made me feel the many emotions I had gone through in that country far from home. Lost Song is about losing confidence in life, and regaining it. It's about fear and feeling unidentified, but also about regaining a basic belief in just being. You do not need to justify or excuse your existence. For me, that feeling is important not to forget and it has given me a lot of strength so I hope to convey and share that feeling!”
We saw the band in 2014 and wrote, “A Swedish trio (that doubled into six for their touring version) NONONO, opened the show with a brief but bouncy half hour of danceable alt-pop. The main three in the band (production team Astma & Rocwell and singer Stina Wäppling) were humble but thrilled to be in Minneapolis for the first time, in support of their first full-length, We Are Only What We Feel (Warner Music) and have caught the country’s attention with single, ‘Pumpin Blood’ which has been everywhere, including the soundtrack for a Samsung commercial.”
4 Non Blondes celebrated their 25th Anniversary of Bigger, Better, Faster, More! with a special vinyl edition (marking its first-ever American vinyl release) last month. The band broke up in 1994, but it doesn’t mean that they’re forgotten.
Pro Tip: Don’t have a record player? No problem, if you buy it from Amazon, they offer the digital files for free with your purchase.

Birthed during the heady '90s alt-rock explosion, the colorful San Francisco foursome—frontwoman Perry, guitarist Roger Rocha, bassist Christa Hillhouse and drummer Dawn Richardson—crossed over from the modern-rock charts to the pop mainstream, scoring a major hit single with the anthemic smash "What's Up?," which topped the charts in several countries around the world.
No Age is releasing Snares Like a Haircut (Drag City) on January 26, 2018. The album was recorded in a few days, and it’s something new since their previous album in 2013.

Australia indie-electronic duo No Mono (not to be confused with Japanese band Mono or French electronic Mono), just released their second single ‘Violence Broken’ earlier this week. Their debut single was called ‘Butterflies’.
No Mono is Tom Snowdon and Tom Iansek (of Big Scary) and began collaborating in 2014, when they met for #1 Dads project (‘Return To’ and a cover of FKA Twigs’ ‘Two Weeks’). The two loved working together that they’ve officially formed No Mono later that year.
Their first-ever live shows will be taking place next year, and already Melbourne has sold out.
Australian tour dates:
02/17/18 - Alice Springs - Epilogue
02/22/18 - Melbourne - Northcote Social Club
02/23/18 - Melbourne - Northcote Social Club (SOLD OUT)
