by:Larm is an annual gathering of emerging Nordic talent combined with a selection of heavy international players for five days of gigs, clubbing and seminars in Oslo, Norway. This year, in addition to keynote guests like James Murphy and John Cale and a lineup that includes Andre Bratten, Axel Boman, Erlend Oye, Genius Of Time, Jenny Hval and Kate Boy, we've been invited to host a night on the Red Bull stage showcasing what's commonly known as the Modular Nordic Trinity - CEO, Young Dreams and Shine 2009.
Eric Berglund's highly anticipated sophomore album as CEO, 'WONDERLAND', is now available digitally worldwide (excusing Australia which releases on Friday 7 February). Spanning just 8 tracks but a kaleidoscope of emotions, the album is CEO in perfect form - "a chipper jaunt through a fantastical sonic realm with tinges of darkness at its fringes" (Stereogum).
To date, the album has been peeked at via three tracks - the introductory 'WHOREHOUSE', the single 'WONDERLAND', and the New York Times-premiered 'Mirage'. Last week, NPR streamed the full album via First Listen, describing the album as "a statement about isolation and loneliness and a delicate search for meaning".
Take a dive into CEO's 'WONDERLAND' today. Purchase the album via iTunes here.
"Luxuriantly widescreen and eccentrically detail-rich" - Pitchfork
"As demented and blissful as the best parts of once-popular 'freak-folk' movement, with Berglund leading a big top full of whining recorders, sweet-tooth synths and cackling samples." - Billboard
"Top-notch execution of the pretty but hostile Swedish pop sound he's played such a critical role in shaping." - The Fader
With early accolades for the album coming in from the New York Times, Fader, This Is Fake DIY, Mixmag, Spin, and Stereogum, CEO's 'WONDERLAND' is a world you need to enter to believe.

Eric Berglund has once again delivered to us an engrossing, magical world in the form of new album, WONDERLAND, due for release in February 2014 (scoop the first single WHOREHOUSE via iTunes). No longer based in Gothenburg, instead setting up base somewhere out in the woods in Sweden's south, WONDERLAND is a typically joyous exclamation, heavy and dense with the kind of feeling you might come to expect from the Sincerely Yours boss and The Tough Alliance homie, but more refined, more powerful, more razor sharp than ever.
Is there an overall, unifying idea behind the new record? If so, what is it? If not, why not?
Modular is proud to announce that the long-awaited follow up to CEO's 2010 debut album white magic will be released next February. The album is called WONDERLAND and will be in stores February 3 (UK/EU), February 4 (USA) and February 7 (AUS).
Your introduction to WONDERLAND comes in the form of first single WHOREHOUSE, which will be available digitally December 2 (UK/EU), December 3 (USA) and December 6 (AUS).
Get white magic via iTunes here.
in times when people do whatever necessary to become part of something they are not, a family affair feels extra rad.
