Earlier today Amanda Mair joined us to record a session with a song from her new album and later tonight she stood on stage Äpplet to perform. The session will be really good and it’s so much fun recording these sessions during Umeå Open and tomorrow we will record some more and Navet is one them. They played tonight on Debaser stage and we are looking forward to do a session with them.

We’ve built us self a home at Umeå Open so now you can come by and watch some sessions and tell us who you want to see in the hammock. The first artist to play on the festival site at Folkets Hus was Thåström who played for a massive audience in Idun.
Drop by our hangout Friday and Saturday at Folkets hus.

As all of the locals here knows this week is the week of Umeå Open. Umeå Open is one of Swedens biggest indoor music festivals and this years Headline including Glasvegas, Thåström, Anna Ternheim and Pete Doherty.
The Hammock Sessions crew will of course be there, both to show some previous sessions and record new ones with all the greatest bands on the festival. So drop by our hangout for some sessions and tell us who you want to play in the hammock. You’ll definitely find us in our yellow T’s.

Glasvegas will play Idun on Saturday
Our sweetharts Popterror released a new single called “40 år” at 19th of march if you haven’t already heard it. It’s available at Spotify. At Facebook they said that it’s about Bräcke Polar Bears and a girl from Brunflo. Which we think sounds exciting!
And if you can’t get enough watch this session we did with them last year at Iksu:
