In English from Sweden comes The Only Music Podcast, published every two weeks. Hosted by Staffan Ulmert, producer and editor, and Louise Hammar, label executive and A&R, the podcast features music news, reviews, recommendations and industry. This is a music podcast which isn’t necessarily tied to a specific set of genres. The goal is to avoid being too nerdy and restrict our listeners to the one’s who consume music and the music news 24/7. However, by using their experience, having been in the music industry and worked with interesting and creative people, they aim to bring insight and context to today’s fragmented industry. Broadcasting and hailing from Sweden, they might butcher proper english grammar, but having a unique perspective of not being tied to European, American or English acts or scenes.

Team, Ian Brown, among others. He’s also the founder of Has it Leaked, a music community featured in The New York Times, BBC World and Wired, among others.
