In 2013, Stockholm-based Most Valuable Players released their second album Left on Kalligrammofon. An album on which they stepped away from their lo-fi roots and moved closer to a phase of perfectionist pop, similar to that of Prefab Sprout or Everything but the Girl. Since then, the group, led by the brothers Hugo and Ivar Lavett, has been digging in the archives and released no less than two compilation cassette tapes on the high quality label Zeon Light.
Jonas Fust was born in 1988 and lives in Malmö. His musical expression has its methodological and aestethic roots in hip hop and dub, and contains experimental rhythms, harmonies and soulful voice arrangements. This is the bittersweet disco pop of the future, a dream state that catches the unordinarity of everyday life.
Kalligrammofon is a label for pop music, experimental music and experimental pop music. Established in 2006 and based in Malmö with a catalogue that includes works by Testbild!, Death And Vanilla, V. Sjöberg New Jazz Ensemble and others.
