Tinsel Music Magazine gave Ports of Call a brilliant review on release day and has now named it the best album to be released in the month of May.
"När vi skulle välja ut månadens bästa för maj månad var det ett enkelt val. Indierockartisten Adam Heldrings fantastiska album “Ports of Call“, som släpptes den 7 maj, blev vi helt hänförda av. Från start till slut berättar Adam en historia som är så enkel för lyssnaren att förstå och sätta sig in i, känna hur han kände och med ett musikaliskt intressant uttryck som går hand i hand med texterna och dess narrativ, är det här ett album som förtjänar all uppmärksamhet och lyssning." - Tinsel Music Magazine
Gaffa Magazine features Ports of Call on their list of – "44 new records you should check out"
”Adam Heldring – På det nya albumet kraschar barndom och framtid samman med slitningen mellan storstad och ensamhet. Heldring beskriver med sina låtar en värld där stolar krossas över ryggar och drömmar krossas av sin egen tyngd. Albumtiteln refererar till den lista på hamnar där ett skepp anlägger innan slutdestination. ’Jag har levt med den här skivan så länge så det känns som att ett liv har passerat. Men det finns något vackert i att förra skivan ledde till allt som de här låtarna handlar om. Som att jag blivit större för att jag står på mina egna axlar. Men så kanske det är att växa upp’.”
Absolutely brilliant "Ports of Call" album review in Tinsel Music Magazine.
Tinsel really did their homework and mention almost all the eleven tracks by name name with care and insight. The whole piece is stunningly positive and although it's in Swedish – the finishing line translates without barriers.
"Varje låt överträffar den andra och vi vågar påstå att det här är ett av årets bästa albumsläpp."

I have made a remix of Another Late Night's song "Will You Still Love Me" that was released today along with their original single.
Another Late Night is a newly formed band with members that have been an important part of the Eskilstuna music community for a long time. We share the same hometown, I consider them good friends and I had a really good time working on their sounds.

The You/More temporary tattoos that were handed out at the door to everyone who bought a ticket to the release show on Friday night seem to have been a big hit.
I keep getting reports that the tattoos have been seen on arms, necks and faces of bartenders, bouncers and random hipsters around Stockholm. Happy to hear that the message is spreading way outside the walls of the Scala Theater.
Thanks to everyone who has been sending me pictures for proof. Above photos by Anna Lilius, Emil Kreivi and Daniel Andersson.
Big thanks to everybody who came out on Friday night and made the release show a big success. Old friends and new faces – you all made it special.
The room was full but I saw you all. The screening of the music video was an emotional moment for me as it premiered some very old and very personal family footage. Featuring some people still with us and some that are not.
It was a great feeling to get to play the new single live but also to try out a few additional songs from the upcoming album.
