With 2015’s Ten Love Songs, Norwegian musician Susanne Sundfør went for broke and constructed ten intimate but huge-sounding synth-pop songs. For its follow-up, Music For People In Trouble, she’s pared things back significantly, returning to her roots as a folk singer-songwriter. It’s a painfully pretty album, somewhere on the spectrum between Joanna Newsom and Regina Spektor. It was originally supposed to be released a couple weeks ago, but due to vinyl production delays got pushed back. But it’s out now and you can stream it below.
