#41 Eskil Simonsson

We are back with an English episode to give outsiders a chance to listen to our interview with Covenant’s Eskil Simonsson, and to discover new Swedish electronic music. Eskil tells us about Covenant’s humble beginnings, what Futurepop really is, all about Fieldworks Exkursion EP, and upcoming tour and album plans. With music by Minuit Machine, The Human League, Kill Shelter and much, much more.

Your Monday is Blue. Welcome.
