Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music.
Fresh from a powerful performance at 2008’s Lollapalooza festival, Sweden’s Sofia Talvik is now poised to conquer the States with the release of her devastatingly beautiful third album. It’s a record of staggering elegance, with the faintest trace of Scandinavian twee and youthful exuberance. (Chris R, CD Baby)

I don’t buy music that often, especially not now that I have spotify. But I actually bought an album today, and it was bloody hard to find it. You see I saw the movie “Ghost town” a while ago and heard a song I really liked. It turned out to be Mason Jennings “Which way your heart will go” from the album “Boneclouds”. I tried his website and I tried iTunes. I’m not a fan of Amazon as nothing ever seems to be delivered when I order from them so finally through Last.fm I found a digital download site who distributed this album. It actually inspired me to write a song as I didn’t quite catch the lyrics at first and thought he sang something else which I later used in my song 🙂
I also want to share this beautiful video with you, and the music isn’t half bad either. When I find the album I just might buy it too…
