Forward to a little breathing time now that the LA store opening has beautifully passed, forward to another new Odd Molly store opening in Copenhagen coming oh-so shortly (more on this later), forward to... well... just enjoying the moment and taking it all in.
When I am taking such moments for myselves, there is nothing sweeter than tuning in to that totally perfect song. You know, the one that sends you to a faraway place, opening your mind and taking you there.
So for all you music-lovers, I have teamed up with my lovely friend Markus Bergkvist from Stockholm's Music Super Circus to put together a dream mixtape just for you.
Markus is the world-class magician who sets the Odd Molly runway shows to music and is madly skilled beyond belief. He is also the musical stylist for the Molly-stores, bringing you the latest, most interesting, most eclectic sounds from A to Z. I am super proud and thankful to know him and now you get to share in the treat.

First, we hit you up with Markus' top modern/currents. Next, we send you the retro songs that are playing in our heads... then you decide which line-up wins, yes?
Markus leads the way and we surely follow...
2. PEARLS / DUTCH
3. NEIGHBOR DOWN THE HALL / BENJI HUGHES
You gotta love a man who sounds like this, but looks like this:
A lovely, just lovely, outfit including not least former Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti.
You gotta love when basically an entire national scene of music teams up under one name!
7. KEEP THE LIGHTS ON / WAVE MACHINES
UK soft pop that sends you thinking of the UK 80's where this kind of soft pop was invented. http://www.wavemachines.co.uk
8. LLOYD, I'M READY TO BE HEARTBROKEN / CAMERA OBSCURA
Scottish superstars deserve to be on this list. Not least because you can actually understand what they are saying!
Thank you Markus!! Our hats off to you!
