Peter Estberg

Peter EstbergBecause of the southern dialect, and maybe to some extent the voice too, he often brings the great late rocker/protest singer Björn Afzelius to mind but is really something quite different, one of the closer voices on the web actually, a kind of quiet flasher without grand airs nor poses but with a tone apparently so sincere and honest it makes it’s way straight through the waxplugs, he’s about words poking among themselves looking for one or the other context or connection, and words finding quite a lot. He’s the definition of nice in my dictionary, and behold then that we didn’t even ever meet.

These songs are from the new Peter Estberg album “Då faller bitarna isär” (“Then the pieces fall apart”):

Då faller bitarna isär
Alltid på dig
Natten är hos mig snart
Var finns ni nu
En stilla förhoppning

You can get the whole album, as well as the albums “En indian i Småland” (“An indian in Småland” 2007) and “Eftertankens kranka blekhet” (“The sickly paleness of second thoughts”, or something like that… 2007) from peterestberg.com
