A Nice Thin Light

A ridiculous amount of music from Sweden has made its way to these pages over the years. I’ve really got to start paying more deliberate attention to what’s happening over there instead of just stumbling across things.  For example, how much more gratified would I have been if I had “discovered” Jonathan Johansson a couple of years ago?  OK, not much more. Music has a way of finding you when you need it. A quick search of the regular music press shows that his album En Hand I Himlen got some positive reviews in the states.  Most of the record is “fine, just fine” synth-n-dance pop (which I like) but this one song “Aldrig Ensam” is just an instant classic.

Just close your eyes and listen.
