Stream Chorus Grant Space (Stereogum Premiere)
Chorus Grant is bringing Space to America. Multi-instrumentalist Kristian Finne already released his album in his native Denmark, and it’s finally getting North American release next week. We posted the great teaser single “Godplans” earlier this summer, and the rest of the album lives up to that song’s softspoken warmth and beauty. Chorus Grant’s DNA contains traces of fellow idiosyncratic Scandinavian folk-pop masters such as Jens Lekman, Kings Of Convenience, Jose González, and Loney, Dear as well as American indie-pop greats like Phil Elverum, Doug Martsch, and Way Yes. But beyond any of the myriad reference points, this strikes me as a personal outpouring from a tremendous talent — 13 tracks of deftly arranged, heartfelt chamber pop well worth your attention.
