A Camp are excited to announce that Nettwerk is making their debut self-titled album available for the first time in North America with a digital release yesterday, September 8. A Camp--which was met with much critical praise abroad and awarded four Swedish Grammy Awards--was originally released on September 3, 2001, but had only been available as an import until now. A Camp toured extensively on the strength of the single, “I Can Buy You” (featured above).
Originally formed as a Swedish musical duo by The Cardigans front woman/lyricist Nina Persson and Atomic Swing musician Niclas Frisk, A Camp has since evolved into a trio with the addition of American film composer, Shudder to Think member, and Nina’s husband, Nathan Larson.
A Camp’s US debut, Colonia, was released earlier this year on Nettwerk Records. Spin Magazine called it “beguiling gorgeous stuff—and smartly funny too,” while Entertainment Weekly saw an “instant classic.”
A Camp have just revealed their latest video for the track “Love Has Left The Room” off their album Colonia. The video, directed by Maximilla Lukacs and Sarah Flicker, premiered exclusively on Stereogum yesterday.
A Camp kicked off their first North American tour yesterday at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City in support of their North American debut album, Colonia. The band announces the release of their Covers EP on Nettwerk exclusively in North America through iTunes on June 9. The Covers EP features three cover tracks from a few of their favorite artists: Pink Floyd, David Bowie and Grace Jones; the EP is available on all digital service providers on June 16.
A Camp explains in their own words why they chose to cover these three songs/artists below
A Camp will embark on their first ever US tour later this Spring, kicking off things at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on May 26th in support of their highly anticipated US debut Colonia – out this Spring on Nettwerk Records. A Camp features the lovely and talented Nina Persson (The Cardigans front woman and frequent member of the Citizens Band), her husband Nathan Larson (renowned American film composer and member of Shudder to Think), and Niclas Frisk (from the Swedish pop-rock sensation Atomic Swing). The coast to coast trek will have the band visiting prominent venues in 11 US cities including the Middle East in Boston, 9:30 Club in Washington, DC, Bluebird Theater in Denver and The Crocodile in Seattle before performing the final show on tour at the famed Troubadour in LA.

You don’t have to spend long in the company of Valeska Steiner and Sonja Glass to work out the secret behind the success of Swiss/German duo BOY’s debut album. Mutual Friends is a magical collection of songs – suffused with equal parts joy and melancholy – that reflects the two women’s personalities flawlessly. Mutual Friends is an album of simple, heartfelt pop decorated with art school elegance and occasional folky flourishes. Their infectiously catchy single, "Little Numbers," has collected more than 7 million views on YouTube.
