I don’t know why, but there are lots of bands and lots of music from Sweden that I really like. For example: The Knife, The Concretes, Taken By Trees, Nina Kinert, Jenny Wilson, Jose Gonsalez, The Cardigans, and probably others I can’t recall at the minute.
Two new albums dropped recently from a couple of them. Jenny Wilson released a new solo album. Her 2nd. It’s called Hardships! It’s not as easily accessible as her first album. I haven’t listened to the new one as much as I would have done if there hadn’t also been a new solo release from Karin Dreijer Andersson of The Knife. It’s called Fever Ray and is released under that band name as well. It’s brilliant. If you like The Knife you’ll love Fever Ray.
The tracks Seven, Now is the Only Time I Know, Triangle Walks and Keep The Streets Empty For Me are especially good. Videos for the tracks If I had a Heart and When I Grow Up are embedded below. Will report back on the new Jenny Wilson release when I’ve got into it more.
