Behind the bend EpPurchased

Brand new album from this bewitching Swedish folk siren and her band. This is the follow up to last years critically acclaimed debut album “When this was the future”*. : Few of psych-folk's recent exponents have come close to matching the debut from Lisa Isaakson... Narnian harmonies and an air of wintry wonderment defy you not to give yourself wholly to what you're hearing" THE TIMES 5/5 . "Between Vashti Bunyan's innocence and Sandy Denny's knowingness, Linda Perhacs' hippy spells and Espers' retro folk sorcery... on this evidence, northern European pagan psych-folk is alive and well" MOJO
To get inspiration for the creation of the new album “Behind the Bend” Lisa spent time in a small cottage located deep in the vast woods of Vastmanland, Sweden, where she enjoyed the last breath of the summer. Every evening she and David walked further in to the woods to an old rowing boat that lay on the edge of a forest lake. In the light of the magically ever glowing Swedish summer midnight sun they paddled across the lake and then further along a forest creek with lush green trees that hangs down over the fresh running water and water lilies. This is the kind of set and setting where you travel into another world….and they did. The initial recordings were made under a vaulted blue ceiling with gold stars in the old 15th century timber church of Hjulsjo, Sweden. The new album is filled with delicious and bewitching watery woodland folk hymnals, eloquent yet eerie. The harp has been given more space, the violin plays a greater role, the twelve-stringed guitar plays graceful melodies and all is led by Lisa's gossamer vocals, as delicate as a wavering candle flame. Come along for the ride.
