There were some great single releases from Swedish artists too. Here are some of my favourites. The first one is mentioned only for the b-side “Hur kan du be mig” – yes, sung in Swedish, or should I say the Southern Swedish dialect “skånska”.

Aura Oyasumi – Jag dör snart 7”
Skenet Bedrar – Allt jag aldrig gjort, men borde EP
Mary Anne’s Polar Rig – Surfaced EP
Skiftande Enheter – Mördande Rutin 7”
