21-04-2013 // Album: Björn Kleinhenz - The Fall of Discontent


So here's one for the relaxing Saturday evening or easy-going Sunday. Man and guitar: the basic ingredients for a fine album by Björn Kleinhenz. Björn is a Swedish singer-songwriter of the purest kind and I found it impossible not to be completely in love with his music the very first time I heard it. For a little over half an hour, stop what you're doing and give this a spin.


Opening track "The Beard Man" reminds me a lot of Nick Drake, a name that comes to mind a few more times during this album. Just like Plug in, Baby!-favorite Pickering Pick is definately close several times throughout the 35 minutes of the 9 songs on this album. This was released a year and 3 days ago and I had planned to write this on it's birthday, but Saturday evening is maybe even a better moment for an album like this. I've just finished reading a good book (onto the next one in a few minutes), there's a glass of red wine from a fine bottle on the table, the light is weak, the kitty is softly sleeping at a safe distance. The mood is perfectly set for a beautiful slow album like this.


But if you're out dancing or enjoying your Record Store Day-purchases, put this on your reminders-list. Come back tomorrow morning, enjoy a warm Sunday morning in the sun with a hot cup of coffee and the sweet sounds of Björn Kleinhenz. It'll work as good as it does on Saturday night, because that is how beautiful music works. It'll get you in the mood for it, regardless of the situation.


This is a Beautiful Album. It deserves to be heard, to be carefully listened to. And you might just fall deeply in love. I have.
