Us and Them perform on a Wickerman evening

•November 1, 2018 • Leave a Comment

The 3rd of November Us and Them will be a part of a Wicker man evening here in Stockholm. The extended directors cut of the movie will be shown, it will be apples and apple cider directly from the this year’s harvest of the island of Summerisle and music connected to the movie, direct or indirect.

Us and Them will, for the first time, perform the whole Summerisle Ep + a song we written ‘’inspired by the movie’’. Since we have heard that facebook readers don’t read posts with only text we add a video from our Summerisle EP.

Here’s a link for more information for you who got Facebook:

Us and Them and others live 4th of November

•October 22, 2017 • Comments Off on Us and Them and others live 4th of November

The 4 of November is going to be a special night for us. Us and Them are going to play with two of our absolute favourites among Swedish artist. We saw a performance by Astor Wolfe (astorwolfe.com) lately and it was totally captivating. For about half hour we were moved to another very beautiful place. Ludvig Josephson is known by you who read the liner notes on Us and Them records carefully. He is the male voice on Gentle Johnny (from Summerisle EP) and Banks of the Nile (from Fading within the dwindling sun). But above all he is Internal Planet (soundcloud.com/internal-planet). A band that combine very direct melodies with a warm delicate psychedelic feel. This night Ludvig is going to bring his band with him who will choose from his rich collection of songs.

New single on Mega Dodo in January

•December 7, 2016 • Comments Off on New single on Mega Dodo in January

when-i-was

Around 20th of January we will release a new single on Mega Dodo. Thee Psychedelicatessen describe it so good that we don’t have to do it ourselves:

”The final part of the excellent Mega Dodo Singles Club is nearly ready for release…….hot on the heels of their forthcoming release of an EP of Sandy Denny covers for Fruits de Mer Records, Mega Dodo will release a 7″ single of new material from Swedish Psych Folk duo Us and Them in mid January.

Made up of Britt Rönnholm, who sings, and Anders Håkanson, who plays the instruments, Us And Them play beguiling Psychedelic Folk deeply inspired by the music of Sandy Denny, Donovan, Bert Jansch, Vashti Bunyan, Duncan Browne and Pentangle and the single ‘When I Was Walking’ c/w ‘Green Couch’ reveals all these influences. Their previous release on Mega Dodo, the album Summer Green And Autumn Brown, was reviewed on Strange Things Are Happening in September 2015 where we wrote “As if by strange magic, Us And Them have created an album of such fragile beauty that is part pastoral folk, part something more melancholic…Dominated by Britt’s haunting voice Summer Green And Autumn Brown reflects the changing of the seasons, slowly shifting from a trippy, slightly proggy, stroll through lush fields and woodland landscapes flecked with sunshine and shadows to a hazier place where the dark nights are slowly drawing in and there is a chill in the air.”
