After a long run-up, we can finally listen to the new album by Swedish singer-songwriter Josefine Lindstrand “Mirages by the lake” in full length. “Mirages by the lake” is physically available here via our jpc shop.
The album is full of music that takes you on a journey back to Joseﬁne’s childhood, to the dark and adventurous forests and cold, hidden lakes in Sweden. The music was recorded in the countryside outside Stockholm in a beautiful studio, with her own favourite musicians from the past (Jonas Östholm-piano, Gunnar Hallet-trumpet, Pär-Ola Landin-contrabass, Fredrik Myhr-drums). After that Joseﬁne worked with the material in their own studio, creating sounds, voices, synthesizers, atmospheres and cutting around, like building LEGO bricks. In February 2019, Joseﬁne travelled to Bonn to record the beautiful voices of the Bundes Jazz Orchester Chor. This was the final building block to make the project complete!
Tip Berlin writes: “the unmistakable voice of the Swede Josefine Lindstrand (…) enraptures people beyond Scandinavia. Associations of dark mysticism, cold, hidden lakes and forests are awakened. (…) Nine songs recorded in idyllic solitude.”
