A Camp — Cardigans chanteuse Nina Persson with husband (and Shudder To Thinker) Nathan Larson and fellow Swede Niklas Frisk — are set to release a second album Colonia (4/28, Nettwerk), following 2001’s eponymous debut. On it, the trio’s joined by a number of guest musicians — ex-Dambuilder and late-period GVB drummer Kevin March, Joan Wasser (aka Joan As Police Woman), Nicolai Dunger, and James Iha — but what sticks out most is Persson’s expressive, always comforting voice. Fittingly, we spoke with her about the lyrics and ideas behind album track “Love Has Left The Room,” which debuted in this week’s Drop. You can read her candid responses while you listen.
This week we also offered the chance to win a copy of Sigur Rós’ extremely limited Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust Deluxe Edition.
One winner gets a copy Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust Deluxe Edition. In this case, this is what “Deluxe” means:
A 200-page, cloth-bound hardback book of fine art photos of the band by acclaimed photographer Eva Vermandel. These photos, taken while the band were recording Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust until their triumphant hometown show in Iceland after the albums release, gives fans a beautiful, intimate look into the band’s process.
A Making Of film on DVD by filmmaker Nick Abrahams. Shot in Super-8, the film chronicles the band’s creation of the record and subsequent shows in England, Mexico and America, including their stop at this year s Bonnaroo Festival and their intimate show at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.
A unique strip of original film from the “Gobbledigook” video, which was shot on 16 mm film.
A copy of Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust.
Here’s the DVD trailer:
This is what the Deluxe packaging looks like:
