Sofia Talvik Shop

So why am I closing my shop? I’m about to head over to the U.S to start to record a new album.
I’m leaving in May and will be there for about three months. I’m leaving all my albums at home since I don’t want to drag them with, so I will not be able to ship any signed album to you guys.

The shop closes 26th April.
I’ll keep you informed on when I’ll be opening the shop again.

Rave review from Ninthspace

I just got this lovely review from Ninthspace! Thank you so much! ūüôā

“I guess, by the time a musician gets to their third album they know whether it’s going to work out for them. Not writing, recording and touring as a hobby, but embracing their talents and working with something that’s turned out to be innate to their existence. There are perhaps a handful of musicians that I could categorise in such a way.

With the release of Jonestown, Sofia Talvik easily gets over the idea of the difficult third album (younger sibling of the difficult second album) and turns out a collection that eclipses her first two. Opening track and lead single As Summers Pass recalls the past with its acoustic progressions, but the subsequent song My James Dean is astonishing.

Because it’s not what you’re expecting. Sure it has these synth pads that appear to hang over from its predecessor, but the guitar loops lower, more geared towards grooving. The best way I can describe it is the merging of the droning synth-rock of Stereolab and the sub-Spektor inclinations of El Perro del Mar with piano too.

Over the top of this comes Sofia’s outstanding vocals and a plaintiff declaration that I’m not that special. But she is.

It has begun…

Today I met up with artist and producer Tobias Fr√∂berg to start recording demos for my third album. I’m quite excited that Tobias might be producing it as I feel he can bring something new to my songs. And he’s got a microphone from the 30’s that looks like an exhaust pipe, how weird is that? but it does sound really nice. Tobias is also about to finish his third album and the material sounds terrific, check out his last album on www.myspace.com/tobiasfroberg
