The Local's resident music guru Paul Connolly is back with a selection of his favourite Swedish tracks to see you through the dark, post-festive days of January.

1. Jose Gonzalez - Every Age

The Gothenburg-based melancholic is back with his long-awaited third solo album in February and this is a gorgeous taster.

2. Lo-Fi-Fnk - Can U Feel It?

This is in no rush to get anywhere fast. The perfect, chunky, trip-hoppy accompaniment to post-festitve blues.

3. Naomi Pilgrim - It's All good 

Mapei and Seinabo Sey may have led the surge in Swedish soul but Ms Pilgrim is not far behind.

4. Wyclef Jean/Avicii - Divine Sorrow

Avicii’s cheesetastic tendencies are leavened by Wyclef Jean’s sublime vocals.

5. Ida La Fontaine - Anthem

Just a light acoustic taster ahead of the imminent full-fat big production version of this song. 

6. Amason - Duvan

We tipped this band at the start of last year. They’re only just getting their act together now but it’s been worth the wait.

New Malmö museum will focus on ‘democracy and migration'
