Edvard Borneo – So Lonesome I Could Drive

“Song that feels so positive, but at the same time it is much more deeper and melancholic. Song and instrument like a metaphor of life and all that it brings, good and bad moments, but you keep going, because, you can choose the soundtrack of life as well the life itself. ”

Soulful vocals, jangling guitars, thumping piano chords and a steady backbeat all combine to make this a memorable classic tune ... oh and somebody mentioned that Tom Petty might be a reference point too!

Dewey Parker – Citrus Waltz

“Dewey Parker shares a representative example of his inventive mind sculpting catchy instrumental sounds and merging together different rhythmic patterns! Idealy suitable for the Folk Rock audience, this single can easily affect any other kind of listener too.”

-Nagamag.com

Packed with catchy, vintage-feeling guitar riffs and inventive, out-of-the-box rhythms and drumming patterns, "Citrus Waltz" feels familiar and soothing, while keeping you guessing. Just when you get into the 4/4 groove, the track switches into another time signature ("Is it a 3/4 waltz, or is that 6/8ths?!"). But, wait... time for a killer 80s sax solo! Explains Dewey, "I wanted to write a song that had a bridge in a different time signature. This song is actually two separate ideas that magically were able to come together."

Ásgeir – Snowblind

“There is something cinematic in this music, where something incredible, magical and attractive is happening in the atmosphere of cold ice. Incredible atmosphere Indie Folk with hypnotic vocals.” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Есть в этой музыке нечто кинематографическое, где в атмосфере холодных льдов происходит нечто невероятное, магическое и притягательное. Невероятная атмосфера Indie Folk с гипнотическим вокалом.”

-Nagamag.com

Ásgeir’s absolutely magical new record, “Time On My Hands” out October 28 on One Little Independent. Alongside the announce he’s also released the first listen from the LP, single (and stunning video) “Snowblind”, an icy electronic ballad that fuses crisp beats with elated, expressive intensity. Driving synths rise dramatically while drums crack through the layered production beneath them – and amidst it all, Ásgeir’s singular, pure voice weaves a narrative that recalls the sparse and dark roads of his Icelandic hometown.

As one of Iceland’s most successful exports, Ásgeir has spent the time between his record-breaking debut (now celebrating its 10th anniversary) and today pushing the boundaries of his textured, thoughtful brand of folk-pop. ‘Time On My Hands’ sees Ásgeir in a state of self-reflection and experimentation. On this album he’s entered new realms of composition, sensitively layering acoustics with electronics and brass. As with some of his previous work, Ásgeir plays with euphoric and choral elements of electronic pop music while keeping a tight grasp on the introspective, vocal-lead style of the acoustica that made him famous.

It’s clear from the beginning that the collection is built around visuals of glacial scenery as Ásgeir soars above a frosty terrain of enchanting melodic soundscapes with cinematic lucidity. The rolling landscapes aesthetic of the record was inspired by Ásgeirs own relationship with music over the last two years, consuming mostly while he was running outdoors, or while on long drives. He says that “some of the albums or music that stand out from that time were Caribou’s album Suddenly, Caroline Polichek-Pang, Dijon, Altopalo, Big Thief, Michael Kiwanuka, Sault, Ethan Gruska, Blake Mills and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. This music probably has something to do with how the record came out, combined with earlier influences.”

The whole album asks us to allow ourselves to glide over borders, both the physical, the ones we put up ourselves, and those between reality and imagination. It’s about freedom, the desire for adventure, and taking flight to escape isolation, as well as appreciating the natural wonders that surround us every day.
