On ideas

A Mass of Nothing

The Swedes just seem to get it. I have been listening to the Marcus Sjöland’s project Bakers at Dawn for the last week and I am floored by how good it is. Simple songs that are both expressive and intelligent.

I have been obsessing over simply recorded music lately and You Must Hide Your Love Forever fits the mold perfectly. I believe it just explodes with sincerity and shows how effective simplicity can be in creating great music.

The “bleeps” and “bloops” play their part in this album but Sjöland realizes he can add them merely as a compliment to the music. They detail each track instead of a completely overrunning it and, by doing so, Bakers at Dawn achieves that perfect layering. This is a great album full of exceptionally written songs.
