This is a really beautiful record by Swedish duo the Greek Theatre. It took me a couple of listens to get in the groove but I am absolutely hooked.
Here is one half of the group describing their interesting process. Seven Froberg:
“Through the warm summer of 2009, just weeks after our formation, we managed to write what will become the complete Greek Theatre songbook. As none of us have written anything that comes close, in terms of quality, either before or after, we’re stuck with those songs for better or worse. Our mission is to record and release our beloved tunes, in chronological order, spread over what will be four very different albums. When the mission is completed the band will cease to exist.”
