Those who know me know of my affinity for Sweedish band, The Cardigans, and their front woman, Nina Persson. She is magical. In addition to The Cardigans, she has a side project called A Camp. She's only released one record as A Camp, way back in 2001. But the stars have aligned for us and A Camp is back together with a new release set for early 2009!
If the first record was a mash up of americana and minimalist eclecticism, COLONIA draws from a wider set of colors, drawing on historical imagery.......from the opium den to the Belgian Congo, from the Namibian desert by starlight to Victorian New York by gaslight, and the Bowery of the '70s by neon.
The album was produced by Niclas Frisk, Persson, and her husband, ex-Sparklehorse member Nathan Larson and features contributions from ex-Pumpkins guitarist, James Iha, and Guided By Voices drummer, Kevin March.
