Aproveitando todo o alvoroço causado pelos caras, abaixo um rapido bate papo com os proprios:
Q. What´s the plans for future?new records, a tour….
A. There are some tracks that we've done that we've decided to roll back for the future, some nice palette of styles and sounds. There could be a split EP, a 7" Ep too. An east coast tour of the US is in the plans too for 2011/2012. Some say the world will end in 2012? I wonder why.

Q.Which bands songs would you love to make a cover version?
A. We've done "she's so high" by Blur and we are slowwwwly working out a version of Q lazarus's "goodbye horses" I'm constantly obsessing and re-obsessing with songs that I can hear sounding pretty cool with our spin on it.
Q.Which new bands do you recommend?
A. Telltale, Electric Umbilical Cord, and the Violet Hour are very awesome. The morning after girls are very fucking awesome.
Q.What´s the plans for future?new records, a tour….
A. The album comes out this winter. We're excited... It's been a while waiting to release these songs... Like, it's easy to get sick of things you have been rehearsing for a year. We're in discussion with a band that we all really like to support them on their winter tour of the US and Australia. As of now its keep writing and not freeze to death.
Thanks Soren Well
Q. When Moonbeams starts?Tell us about the beggining...
A - Moonbeams started in Spring 2009, but I have been making music for a long time. I have loved shoegaze for a while now. I started Moonbeams as my own project, recording overdubs of myself in my bedroom. We initially were going to blend twee pop and shoegaze, but I had more fun writing the shoegaze songs, so I stuck with that. When we started playing live, it was just my girlfriend and I. Now we play as a four piece.
Q. Who are Moonbeams influences?
A - I am specifically influenced by albums I always look for in the record shops but can never seem to find...shoegaze bands like Lilys, Swirlies, Slowdive, the Telescopes, Astrobrite, Secret Shine and Skywave. I am also influenced by 1990s indie pop...the Field Mice, the Cranberries, the La's, the Sundays, Rocketship, Belle & Sebastian, etc.
Q. Tell us about the process of recording the debut ep?
A - I have an old 4-track tape recorder that I used for the EP. I recorded most of it in my bedroom. The 4-track is usually broken, resulting in one track being quieter than the others, or it will randomly turn off while I'm using it. It's frustrating, but I think it has a lot of personality.
Q. How was the shows?
A - The shows are fun. We are so much louder and intense live than we are recorded. The musicians that I play with are my best friends too, so it's very rewarding.
Q. What´s your opinion about shoegazer classic era?
A - Classic shoegazer era...I love bands like My Bloody Valentine, Spacemen 3, and the Jesus and Mary Chain, but I have always liked Slowdive the most. They definitely have a big influence on the music I make.
Q. Which new bands you recommended?
A - New bands I recommend...A Place to Bury Strangers, Tears Run Rings, the Fauns, Darker My Love, Ceremony, The 1959 Hat Company, I heard the Vandelles the other day and they sounded pretty cool.
Thank you, Renato.
Thanks a lot Ryan...it´s a pleasure to me...
Q.Who are the influences from the band?
Q.When did Youngteammusic starts, tell us about the beginning…
A - Youngteam started playing at the end of 2005 i think, back then it was only me and Peter and Jesper...and some friends helping out (like Anna Järvinen etc).
It all started cause i hade some songs that i wanted to record, song that i´ve had in my mind for a very long time, and asked Peter if he wanted to start a band with me.
We wanted to do more noisy stuff, more shoagazy music with a twist of psych...but we wanted to do it our own way, the way that we want music to sound like.
Theese songs made the first youngteam EP, "Missnöjesbandet". The title of the album came up as a joke by Isak from Speedmarket Avenue, cause we were all playing in different bands at that time, and he said we werent happy with that so we started a missnöjes band = dissatisfaction band....haha.
After we released that Ep (through Northern Star Records only) were started to play more like a band, writing new material, playing a lot together, doing shows, recording more stuff...Johan joined us on Guitar and later on Mattias on bass. Youngteam were completed and devoloped our own kinda thing, and we also skipped the -music, and changed name to just youngteam.
I had some songs, sometimes only an idea, and we just started to record it...didnt have a clue how its gonna end - we just let it happen.
Some friends came buy to help us on some songs, and that was it....pure fun. Nowdays its little more prepared.
Q. Tell us about the prescent Swedish scene from shoegazing bands…
A - There isnt really are scene for shoegazing in Sweden, very small one if so...wich is to bad!!!
There are some few minor clubs and bands, but its not easy to get shows for shoegaze band i think, not at the big clubs...too noisy and loud i guess, and for people who dont like it may sounds like noise with to low vocals.
There are some good bands here though, Radio Dept, The Early Days, Mixtapes and cellmates, Aerial, de la mancha.
Q. Which bands you love to made a cover version?
A - I often think of that, dunno...maybe good times bad times by led zeppelin???
The best cover i´ve ever heard someone do is Fleeting Joys Cover of Bob Dylans Masters Of War - BRILLIANT!!!!
Q. Which new bands you recommended?
A - Im really bad looking up new bands to be honest, and mostly listen to the stuff ive always been listening to. Bands that i do like nowdays and i think you should check out is, Fleeting Joys, The Early Days, December Sound, Soundpool, Asteroid #4, A place to bury strangers, de la mancha.
Q. What´s the plans for future?new records, a tour….
A- We are right now at the end of finishing our debut album, 12 songs i think it will be in the end. We have been working on that album in periods, started recording in about 2 years ago and then did nothing for about a year for some reason i dunno...
We have recorded it with the Producer Mattias Glavå in Gothenburg. I believe we have taken our music to the next level with this one, hard to descibe though but...a lot of melankoli, darkness, psychadelic, 12 string guitars, melotron..lot of downtuned guitars, and shoegaze influences....were very very happy with the results!! Hopefully it will be out soon. After that we will focus on play live as much as we can.
Q. Any order important thing to tell us…
A - We got in touch with Scott Causer from Northern Star Records right after we had recorded our first EP. We love many of the bands that have vorked with him, and what he was doing for the scene - so it was the only way to go to contact him. He is a true psych/gaze lover, and maybe one of the most dedicated persons to music ive ever met, and doing a nice job spreading good music.
Were very proud to be apart of that.

Q. How Electric Assembly feels playing alive?
Maybe nervous euphoria? It's a bit like going on the scariest ride at a fair - you're not sure how safe it is, or if you're going to like it - but something compels you to do it anyway. Then once it's over you're on a real natural high and can't wait to get back on.
The best moments are always the ones that are spontaneous and unrehearsed – when something new and magical emerges from what we're playing. Live is often when songs we’ve been working on finally reach their peak.
Q. How was the shows?
Instead of just playing a bunch of separate songs thrown together, we generally try to make our gigs flow into one trip or 'soundtrack' if you like. Whilst we believe the songs work individually and in their own space - we like to make the gig experience a bit more special than that. We sometimes work with our friend and film maker Lux who does visual projections for the gigs - these have always been the most fun shows for us. But when we're playing without the visuals, we like to think people use their ears to experience the music and not their eyes.
Q. What´s your opinion about shoegazer classc era?
It was a time for beautiful and crazy guitar sounds, perhaps the final era in the electric guitar’s evolution. Certainly it was a time when digital combined with analogue technology bringing the electric guitar somewhere fresh and new.
Q. What´s your opinion about the new shoegazer era?
We're suspicious of anyone deliberately trying to sound exactly like they come from the past. Having said that there are many bands, artists and producers using the sounds of that time as inspiration for something exciting today. Boards of Canada’s Geogaddi was like this decade’s Loveless. To us it represents a similar approach to sound and mood. We're not so into bands who sound exactly like the old shoegaze bands, we would rather go back and listen to the early Ride/Slowdive/Swervedriver/Moose eps.
Q. Which bands you like actually?
Current acts we're into would include Animal Collective, My Bloody Valentine, Do Make Say Think, Deerhunter, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Jim O'Rourke, Magnolia Electric Company, Twilight Sad.
Q. Tell us about the eps? When the album is coming?
The first EP was recorded and put together over a really long period of time. As it was our first release we were all a bit apprehensive about making our first 'musical statement' as a band - so many bands seem to get boxed or labelled by their first release. So we took a lot of time recording and making sure the mastering by Kramer was as good as it could be. We realised that working in this overly cautious way wasn't much fun, so made a pact that we would never go down that route again.
There was quite a gap between that and our second EP 'White Splinter', but that was more to do with us spending time on writing new songs and just getting better as a band. The actual recording, choosing of songs and artwork all came together fairly quickly once we decided we wanted to release another EP and we think the music is much better for it.
We haven't really spoken about releasing an album yet as we're not even sure if that format is really relevant as an artform any more. A lot of albums that have been released over the past few years seem to dilute the aesthetic of the band. That's not to say there aren't albums that we all love or that we would never record one ourselves - we would just have to feel like the time was right. The EP format seems to work best for us at the moment.
