Back in 2004, Reclusive cult fave Stina Nordenstam released one of the most criminally underrated albums of the last decade and change. Her last (and best) release to date, The World Is Saved blended subtly ambitious musical arrangements with sardonically contemplative musings on life, love and human nature in ways that not only continue to sound timeless, but in the wake of latter day releases from the likes of St. Vincent and Fiona Apple, sound downright prescient now.
After years of being slept on, this landmark musical statement is finally getting issued on vinyl via Beacon Sound next month. The first pressing of 500 will come with 7” featuring a seminal remix of highlight “Parliament Square” by dearly departed The Knife, as well as charming b-side “Failing to Fly.”
This is something to get very, very excited about people.
