The sound of Scandinavia has been filling the air lately, and it’s not Abba. We’ll hear sounds from across the Nordic countries including music from Sigur Ros, Bjork, Olafur Arnalds and more.
Johan Agebjorn recently released the album Notes, an ambitious song cycle exploring chamber and electronic moods with singers. Agebjorn has been a fixture on Sweden’s ambient and pop music scene for years. In the pop world he’s the mastermind behind Sally Shapiro, the electro-pop project with a singer whose identity remains cloaked, although it may be revealed in our interview. In ambient music he’s released several beautiful, often pastoral albums.
