Case Conrad – “Leikko”

Case Conrad

It’s been three years since Case Conrad released the debut album “Dew Point“, which is of course far too long to wait for the next one. Gustav Haggren and co have been touring frequently around the world since then, though, and while touring collected material for the new album “Leikko”, which was released in October. I was really looking forward to hearing new music from the band, and I wasn’t disappointed; it’s quite an enjoyable collection of songs they have created.

I recognise the Americana-sounding pop, but now in a bigger sound costume, softer and even more dreamy. Strings and horns join in on some arrangements and new is also that Gustav sometimes hands over the lead vocals microphone to Per Henrik Adolfsson. A couple months ago we got a sneak preview in the shape of the song “Lonelylightlylowshine“. Here’s two more excellent tracks from the record:

Gustav Haggren and his Case Conrad haven’t released anything since the last album “Dew Point” in 2010. It’s seems as they are finally on their way now with a new album, though, and here are a couple of lovely tracks: the studio recorded “LONELYLIGHTLYLOWSHINE” and a live take of the song “Copper Thief” from Barcelona in Summer.

Case Conrad – “Dew Point”

Case ConradEarlier we have seen Gustav Haggren in the band Gustav and the Seasick Sailors. Last year the band splitup, but luckily for us, Gustav has startet a new band, Case Conrad.

The debut album, “Dew Point”, which was recorded live in only two days, was released in October. Compare to the seasick sailors, this music has a different feeling, more dreamy, reflective, a little more mellow. And Gustavs voice is more sensitive and heartfelt than ever.

In November Gustav Haggren and the band’s guitar player Robert Johnson went to the US, with an ambition to tour across the continent during 4 months. You can follow the tour on their blog or on Twitter.

Case Conrad also has a Myspace page.
