Smoke Notes

Debut album from Swedish siren Sarah Assbring, also known as El Perro Del Mar. Originally coming to attention through her work with fellow countryman Jens Lekman, she spent a good part of last year touring with compatible acts like Jose Gonzalez, Calexico and The Concretes.
Slotting in comfortably with neo-folksters like Coco Rosie and Joanna Newsom but with a retro sixties vibe a la Phil Spector, with a lo-fi approximation of his "wall of sound". Unlike Spector though, the music is understated and her wonderful voice is the main attraction. With a cute accent and delivery that evokes Nico mixed with the ethereal qualities of Julee Cruise or a less freaky Kate Bush.
A superb album, the NZ version coming with four extra tracks including a fairly convincing take on 60s reggae with 'Do The Dog' and the charming 'Hello Goodbye' - the latter featuring the words "A girl, a boy, hello, goodbye" exclusively. It's not hard to imagine any of these songs being a hit in the AM radio era of yesteryear. Highly recommended.
