A series of beautiful, subdued, percussion-less, melancholic vignettes from this Swedish artist. The often multi-tracked vocals tend toward a half whispered vibrato (think Thom Yorke). Try 2, 5, 9, 10. No FCCs noted.
1. (1:02)—Slow strummed guitar with multi-tracked vocals that sound like they came from a warped record.
2. *(2:01)—Medium-fast tempo. Tense, dark, spidery guitars that edge toward distortion.
3. (2:17)—Fast, shimmering plucked guitars. This has a more conventional structure than most songs here.
4. (1:57)—Slow. The minimal beginning and end sound a bit like Songs: Ohia. The middle adds a few guitar tracks.
5. *(2:20)—Like the previous track, a dramatic soundscape wedged between a slow, stripped-down beginning and end.
6. (2:28)—Slow tempo, features woozy, multi-tracked vocals.
7. (1:37)—Gains speed over the song’s course. A cappella ending.
8. (1:53)—Has more of a groove than the other songs. Pretty harmonies.
9. *(2:38)—Especially slow and hushed, with more wonderful harmonies.
10. *(2:34)—Builds to a sweeping climax. The last minute is an outro.
11. (2:43)—The most dissonant song. Electronics assume a prominent role.
12. (1:55)—Soft plucked guitars. The vocals are particularly quavery.
13. (2:09)—Mid-tempo. Strummed waltz-time guitars and harmonies.
14. (1:42)—Very slow. Half-spoken, half-sung vocals.
15. (2:10)—Medium-slow tempo. Consistent presence of multiple guitars.
16. (2:58)—Pretty drones under Torsson’s guitar and vocals.
