Shout Out Louds: Ease My Mind

Ease My Mind gives the impression of a record made by musicians finally comfortable with their place in the world.

Recent
Music

Avicii: True

Genres are clearly not something Avicii adheres to with his electric dance album True.

Music

Stina Nordenstam - "Another Story Girl"

Stina Nordenstam's chilly examination of soured love evokes the austerity and drama of an Ingmar Bergman film on "Another Story Girl", a cut from her underappreciated debut, Memories of a Color.

Music

Jens Lekman: I Know What Love Isn't

Lekman's sweetly melancholy third full-length is that rare breakup album that emphasizes mature, thoughtful perspective over wallowing, self-hate, or bile.

Music

The Electric Pop Group: Seconds

Erik Aamot doesn't mumble, but the wall of noise that he has to get through does the job of mumbling for him.

Music

Fredrik: Trilogi

Altogether a foresty sound.

Music

Väsen: Väsen Street

The gravity of their playing gives each song a feeling of being presented or framed, as if on a stage, illuminated.

Music

Pascal: Galgberget

Galgberget is nothing revolutionary, but it's full of heart and commitment.

Music

Väsen: Linnaeus Väsen

The three string musicians are all as good as they were on Live in Japan, yet I like this album less.

Music

Hans Appelqvist: Sifantin Och Mörkret

A modest pragmatist's view of wonderment.

Music

The Chrysler: Cold War Classic

There is an endearing quality to the Chrysler's quiet folk rock. Sort of like a diet caffeine free version of Peter, Bjorn and John.
