Ludvig Lagerwall

A couple of months ago Ludvig Lagerwall felt it was time to record some of his songs. He sold his car, found a small studio in Stockholm and sat down with his acoustic guitar. A few hours and a couple of sessions later the songs were ready, just like you can hear them below. There was no time and money for retakes and much editing, and maybe that was a good thing after all. It’s easy to lose this beautiful, naked, personal feeling you can hear in these songs.

Lerin/Hystad – “Ametarasu”

March 6, 2015 at 2:29 pm

Lerin/Hystad

Last year I wrote about the Norwegian/Swedish duo Lerin/Hystad and their album “Mount Buzhou“. There they combined their instrumental music with traditional chinese music, including field recordings from a large music summit in China. On the new album they have crossed the water and gone to Japan to get their inspiration.

Like before they have sampled field recordings in the tracks, but this time taken from arcade halls and subway stations in Tokyo and Osaka. This is mixed with vibes of traditional japanese music, jazz, electronica, progressive and experimental rock. It all becomes a fascinating melting pot where the past meets the present, east meets west, the finetuned organic meets the hard, machinelike. It can coexist at one time and in the next moment the other aspect takes over. Well, it is a bit like I can imagine what Japan is like with it’s deep roots in their own traditions living side by side with the modern society and the influence from the western world. An album with an amazing creativity, abundance of details and a large span of music. Here are two songs:

I Am Karate

“Bloom” is the the first single from the duo I Am Karate, Erika Soldh Ahlström and Marta Pettersson. It’s a beautiful, longing song mainly focusing on delicate vocals and a solo piano, a song which has found the perfect room to live in. The song is taken from a recent EP, where you meet the duo in another two songs. Listen to “Bloom” and another song here below:
