Never enough slacker-pop, as they say. I guess this is the one time Marcus Norberg & the Disappointments failed to let us down. Marcus the laidback Swede here dropping his deep voice over some meandering and almost painfully mellow cuts. Chill vibrations on Heal the World. This is record is for everybody who ever wondered what Real Estate would sound like if their singer's voice was two octaves lower.

He literally has the lowest voice in the history of voices. This is as low or if not lower than Calvin Johnson or the guy from Crash Test Dummies. He uses it to mutter over very pleasant countrified guitar pop and like Leonard Cohen he uses = backing vocals to sweeten the choruses particularly on 'Take It To The Grave' which sounds like the sort of thing Nick Cave would make if he were trying to make music to reassure people that everything is going to be ok. On 'The World We Live In (Is Way Too Small)' the band produce a very pleasant Real Estate-ish jangle with some whirring synths providing a contrasting buzz. It's actually a really lovely track with cushioning chord changes. There's something about him that reminds me of Kurt Vile (could be the long hair) but this is an album of crafted cinematic pop that promises much. Not for fans of Kate Bush/ Geddy Lee.
