Friday Bridge featured in Fact Mag mix
Posted August 26th, 2009 by But is it Art? Comments Off

Friday Bridge’s This Case is Closed (Johan Agebjörn RMX) is featured in a very good mix made by Agebjörn for Fact Magazine. The mix is available for free download, so we suggest that you do just that: here

This Case is Closed RMX very well received
Posted June 17th, 2009 by But is it Art? Comments Off

Here’s some of the praise that has been coming its way:

“Agebjörn’s trademark sparkly synths and Moroder-esque bassline form a
billowy disco bed for Ylva Lindberg’s airy vocals. A nice jam to kick
off your weekend dance party.” - Pitchfork

“This is some silky smooth music. Very dreamy and flowy.” - DANGER! DANGER!

“Sweden is chock full of amazing talent, and Friday Bridge is no exception. They’ve just released a new album called Bite My Tongue. Fans of Sally Shapiro will love the remix we have to share with you today by the man behind it all, Johan Agebjörn. I also hear a bit of Lykke Li in their material as well. Great indie electro-pop!” - HardCandy

“The remix of Friday Bridge’s “This Case Is Closed” (from the band’s new Bite My Tongue LP) delivers more than 6 minutes worth of fantastic “Shapiro-esque” bliss.” - La Cinta

The track can be downloaded for free directly from But is it Art?.
