Moneybrother Makes MAGNET A Mix Tape


Sweden’s Moneybrother (a.k.a. Anders Wendin, formerly of Monster) is finally gracing the U.S. with his presence after issuing four albums in Europe to critical acclaim and winning a Swedish Grammy. And he’s certainly hit the ground running, with the release of stateside debut Real Control (Bladen County) and already sharing American stages with Franz Nicolay, the Love Language, Rhett Miller and Against Me!—most of whom claim to be big fans of Wendin’s soul-oriented brand of rock. Moneybrother took a break from planning more U.S. tour dates for the summer to make MAGNET this mix tape.

Van Morrison “The Way Young Lovers Do”
When it all comes down to it, this is probably my favorite song. Why? To ask that question, you gotta have a heart of stone. Video

Archie Bell & The Drells “There’s Gonna Be A Showdown”
This could be the best dance-floor filler ever. Video

Martha And The Vandellas “I Should Be Proud”
“I Should Be Proud” is an anti-war song that brings it all down to what it is really about. Video

Nick Lowe “All Men Are Liars”
Oh yes we are! Video

Bob Marley & The Wailers “Burning And Looting”
Best musicians ever! Video

Bad Brains “We Will Not”
This is the best punk song I know. Video

The Saints “Know Your Product”
This one’s been one of my top five since I was a little baby. I’m gonna grow old with this song. Video

Nina Simone “For A While”
I love the Sinatra version as well, but it’s hard to beat Nina. Video

Reigning Sound “If You Can’t Give Me Everything”
Attitude and pop! Video
