Anyone know any good Swedish-language acoustic indie folk?

I like Lärkträdet but they don't have very many songs.

I've always found folk to be a vague genre, but try checking out Cornelis Vreeswijk and Fred Åkerström.

Definitely not indie though.

I found a few artists on Spotify by using the radio function. I saved the Swedish language songs to a playlist. They are not folk music, but mellow enough to hear the words. http://open.spotify.com/user/annasellers/playlist/6QypF3zLO8rH5NCnhvJ040 You can use that as a start to find others if you like.

Could you please list a few of the artists? I don't have spotify so I can't see, but I'm keen to check out what I can :) Tack

that's really good! So far, Melissa Horn seems exactly what I was looking for.

edit: Wow, pretty much everything on this playlist is great. Good taste!

Always difficult to recommend music, but you could try Emma Nordenstam (sister of better known Stina Nordenstam) or Turid (Lindqvist).

Not indie folk, but indie hip hop, I hope you'll forgive me, but I love this song so much https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FE_PtvCIAdo

Not really 'indie,' but independent acoustic folk nonetheless -- try Sofia Karlsson as well as Hazelius Hedin.
