A great new acquaintance

One of our first friends at Tracasseur’s MySpace was for us an unknown band from Portland, Oregon. The first thing that first popped my mind was that Matt Groening, the creator of Simpsons, is from Portland. But now there is one more big thing from that city and that’s the electronic synth pop duo Mackintosh Braun. Quite a pleasant get-together I would say. I’ve been playing their album “The Sound” almost on repeat since the introduction.

Their sound is if M83, Junior Boys, Kraftwerk and Cut Copy were incorporated. And that is not a bad incorporation. A dreamful and romantic feeling with a nice discrete and pumping beat with gentle vocals. It was love at once!

And there are other people who have understand Mackintosh Braun’s greatness. For example they were chosen as on of the top 25 bands of 2008 by indiemusic.com. The song “Wake Up” is going to be in the NBC show “Chuck” this Monday. And for you who are going to miss “Chuck” on Monday we give you a video instead.


When I asked them if they have been to Sweden, the answer was no, but that they would love to come here soon. So now it’s up for us Swedes to get them here, so fall in love with them!
