2015 is here. Third Impact may happen, it may not – who knows? We’re three years out from the Mayans saying the world would end, but the Dead Sea Scrolls have never been wrong. All that being said, let’s just relax and enjoy this new start. Maybe you’re hungover right now, but that’s ok, because there’s nothing like some Italo-disco and more partying to cure a hangover. Maybe you can walk out to a nice pond full of cattails and just go fishing, with Agebjörn’s anachronistic productions echoing in to mother nature’s landscape. If you’re not familiar with Johan Agebjörn, that’s alright. To give you a couple of facts, the guy is Swedish and to say he’s a fantastic producer is an understatement. He also is responsible for giving the world Sally Shapiro after a chance meeting. If I see something with his name on it, I know I’m guaranteed quality. Trust that name. He also dabbles in classical elements and flat-out ambient, and who doesn’t like classical or ambient? Listen to “The Leftovers,” which features Loney Dear, below and see what you think of it. Cheers!

The Details

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 10TH ON LIMITED EDITION BRONZE VINYL W/ DOWNLOAD CARD INCLUDED + DELUXE 2CD SET (includes companion album 'Music With Less Electricity')

**Only 300 vinyl available worldwide!

Johan Agebjörn releases a new solo album, Notes; a dreamy, melancholic and mostly instrumental collection of songs. The music is quite different to the music he has produced earlier, both with Sally Shapiro and alone. The starting point for the album was the electric piano sound of the Casio MT­52, a cheap keyboard from the early 80s that was mostly used on an amateur level. It's used (together with other sounds) on almost every track on the album.
