The Local's resident music guru Paul Connolly is back with another selection of his favourite Swedish tracks.

1. Ruth Elin – The Storm

Big-boned, teary Swedish blues as incongruous and glorious as a Cadillac towing a snowmobile.

2. Kitok – Paradise Jokkmokk

Northern Swedish hip-hop - jo? There may be a large dollop of novelty at play here but this is a tune!

3. Spiders – Shake Electric

Spiders have hitherto been a little too trad in their love of rock - but this lead track from their forthcoming second album is a guitar-heavy, melodic triumph.

4. Seinabo Sey – Pistols at Dawn

Seinabo Sey’s just starting to make waves across Europe and this slow-burning wannabe James Bond theme could prove to be her breakthrough.

5. Alesso ft Tove Lo – Heroes

Tove Lo is everywhere right now - her brilliant debut album Queen Of The Clouds is just out but there’s no room on it for this instant dancefloor classic.
