MP3: Björn Kleinhenz - I hate it when you go

My pal Björn Kleinhenz has a new album out today called "Head held high on fearsome pride" and of course it's great, as expected. Even better: all benefits go towards the medical care of Humle, Björn and his girlfriend Yrsa's rabbit. Best: Not only is it stupid cheap (€3.70!), it comes with bundled with cover art, lyrics and a digital scrapbook of pictures from the island of Fårö where Björn wrote and recorded this record. I actually just purchased a copy myself even though Björn had already sent me the mp3s. Like I said, it's for a good cause and I am more than happy to demonstrate my support. For further enticement, here's a selection for you to listen to called "I hate it when you go". The sound is unmistakably Björn Kleinhenz, but I also think that island living has rubbed off on him. It's very relaxed, very comfortable and yes, very very good. If you dig the pastoral and very personal mood of Iron & Wine, especially the first album, you'll love this for sure -- it's got a lot of that same feeling. To purchase the rest of the record, go here: http://www.kleinhenz.se/

Björn Kleinhenz - I hate it when you go

New Björn Kleinhenz album coming soon

Björn Kleinhenz will release his new album "Head held high on fearsome pride" on June 15. It will first be available as a paid download, but there will also be a CD edition later this summer. You should buy it too because all proceeds to to pay for his rabbit Humle's recent medical care, a worthy cause if I ever heard one.

New album from Björn Kleinhenz confirmed for May

Björn Kleinhenz has recorded a bunch of new material at his new home on the island of Fårö and will be releasing the collection as a digital download in May under the title "Head held high on fearsome pride" for what he says will be "a very reasonable rate." There will also be a small run of CD versions as well for those attached to obsolete physical objects.

Björn Kleinhenz completes the Bone Trilogy

Mr. Björn Kleinhenz reports that the third part of his excellent Bone Trilogy is done and will soon be released, perhaps even through this here site in addition to a cassette tape issued by Froggi Records. Entitled "Frogbone salad", this collection of songs features Froggi labelhead Kid Ikarus and was recorded a year ago in March 2008. There will be a release party at Valentinstüberln in NeuKölln, Berlin on March 14 and naturally I encourage all who are able to attend.
