Not checked much out on esteemed Berlin label Morr for a while. The halcyon days of Hermann & Kleine & Lali Puna seem to be firmly in the past as I've not had my ears pricked for a while. But now I'm being serenaded by the sounds of Icelandic act BENNI HEMM HEMM who comes across like a perky cross between The Go team, Stereolab & Calexico. The indecipherable multi layered lyrics suit the euphoric stereophonic strum pop beautifully. I can hear the big band folk pop strains of Love, Gorky's Zygotic Mynki & Sufjan Stevens in these perky bittersweet lullabies. There's a couple of English language tracks on here but the one that brings a smile to our eyes is the darkly hilarious country pop strut of 'I Can Love You in a Wheelchair, Baby', a potential alternative reality No.1. There's a warm swell to the whole album, a genuine (northern) soul, an almost celebratory melancholy. If you can imagine a country campfire SFA in parts then you'll be getting somewhere near but take all the aforementioned bands and roll them up into a nice big dish of puffin canneloni & consume. 12 tracks on a digipak CD plus a dinky 7" containing 2 of the tracks but no big vinyl.
