The Local's music guru, Paul Connolly, has picked out Sweden's eight best new tracks to help ease you into autumn.

1. Loreen - I'm In It With You

The 2012 Eurovision winner is still making lush, melodramatic pop music and this might be her best song since Euphoria.

2. NHGT - Redefine

The debut single from NGHT (Jens Andersson and Mikael Jepson, formerly of The Ark) conjures up New Order and early techno but has a snappy pop sensibility too.

3. The Royal Concept

Fashion This Stockholm band are clearly familiar with the work of the Rolling Stones and Reef. A big, big chorus too.

4. Elin Rigby - A Friend With A Car

Just as the nights shorten and autumn approaches, here comes the perfect soundtrack for long summer days. Elin Rigby's timing may be suspect but this dreamy, electro-pop still shimmers beautifully.

5. John De Sohn - Rush ft Violet Days

Adrenalised electronic dance with just a hint of raw pop edge. This'll get you going in the mornings.

6. Leon - Nobody Cares

Tove Lo's almost alarmingly confessional pop has infected this deceptively breezy slice of summer pop - the chorus will soon lodge in your head like a giant hook.

7. Noonie Bao - Pyramids

Noonie Bao, one of Sweden's more interesting pop stars, here channels Sweden's most famous pop stars - Pyramids has a golden chorus that rings with the vocal clarity of Abba.

8. Cape Lion - Oh Girl

This has been the month of great choruses - Cape Lion offer us another gigantic earworm.

New Malmö museum will focus on ‘democracy and migration'

Change starts with one small step, whether it be a large or small scale project, it all requires movement. It's a logic that can be applied to starting a new national museum from scratch, especially one with an innovative theme that is going to take several years to come to fruition.
