House of Tomidas - Dark times!House of Tomidas
Dark times!
Brus & Knaster


It's funny, sometimes, how one look at an album cover will conjure up all sorts of references as to the genre a band will fit into or what other bands they'll sound like. Upon seeing the "Dark times!" cover grunge old-timers Mudhoney spring to mind, mainly due to a loose visual connection with some of their album art. When the music kicks in, though, the comparison couldn't be any more detached. The first thing that's noticeable on this album is Britta Persson's vocal performance, which is altogether more eclectic and burlesque than demonstrated on her solo releases. No straightforward indiepop here; rather a gathering of musicians capable of holding their own at any '30s cabaret, yet easily translatable to the present day. The unique combination of quirky song arrangements coupled with Persson's evocative, haunting voice pours forth images of a vaudevillian French setting and that's a very enjoyable aspect of this album. On the other hand, songs like "Daytime drunk" and "From hand to mouth" offer a more contemporary take on things and it's proof of the genius in the band's composition skills that these sit perfectly with their more eccentric, old-time tunes. "The letter" is the biggest surprise on here, a dark creeper that sits right in the middle of a generally upbeat album and that offers a brooding, heartfelt exuberance that belies the rest of the music. A wonderful debut that will undoubtedly please Persson's mainstream fans while simultaneously drawing in the jazz club hangabouts.

MP3: Bröderna Lindgren - Annan sort

The new Bröderna Lindgren album "Presenterar meningen med livet" is seriously good, way better than the debut even, despite the core group of guest vocalists remaining more or less the same. There's some fresh blood though and I think that's what takes it over the top: Firstly, we have Those Dancing Days singing on "Dom bästa"... pleasant enough, but not living up to the title. Secondly, we also have Hajen (now called Jaw Lesson) singing two songs -- I think she has a great voice with an intriguing rough edge, but she's yet to fully wow me and her songs are merely good, not great. Keep an eye on her though because she's definitely going places and if you don't believe me, listen to fellow bloggers Absolut Noise and Swedesplease because they are both big fans. No way can I deny her potential. However, by far the best contributor on this record would have to be Britta Persson. Her opening cut "Annan sort" is brilliant, perhaps even one of the best songs I've heard this year, twinkly harpsichord be damned! No matter what material she's dealing with, Britta always has a strong, instantly recognizable voice and she always sounds stunning. Even better, she continually challenges herself by taking on all sorts of different genres and styles and still continually improves on everything she's done before. So yeah, I'm quite impressed. Definitely recommended.
