Today we have a new coworker here on Meadow Music, Morten Frisch. He presents himself like this:
“The first album I ever owned was Extra vol 1. I got the CD for free when I developed photos from my very own disposable camera after a family vacation in France in 1998. The album contains hits like “Öppna din dörr”, Tommy Nilsson and “It’s Raining Men”, Weather Girls. A lot of things have happened since, but my strong interest for music remains. I’m studying now and reading the fantastic book Punken Please Kill Me by Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain for the third time.”
He starts with a presentation of Crying Day Care Choir:
Crying Day Care Choir consists almost exclusively of members from the indie folk band Monde Yeux. On CDCC’s Myspace page you can read the story about four friends escaping Stockholm for the south of Sweden after an eye opening trip to Argentina.
And it’s hard not to draw paralells to the music. Monde Yeux is still in Stockholm while CDCC have taken off their shoes and socks and is playing happy indie-folk music on a southern moor, a late summer’s eve.
I fell directly for the song “July”, and it’s hard not to fall in love with the nice folk-pop arrangement they have created. With guitars and ukulele they create a happy sing-along feeling which stick in my mind.
