Thank You For Your Love
Antony & The Johnsons
Thank You for Your Love is an EP by Antony and the Johnsons released on August 30, 2010 via Rough Trade Records and Secretly Canadian. It also serves as the lead single of the band's 2010 album Swanlights.
Innundir skinni is Icelandic musician Ólöf Arnalds second album. The album was produced by Sigur Rós band member Kjartan Sveinsson, who also worked with Arnalds on her debut album. Skúli Sverrisson, Davið Þór Jónsson, Björk and Shahzad Ismaily all contributed to the album.
Innundir skinni was the first single from the album and was released on June 28, 2010. A music video was released for the song, directed by Asdís Sif Gunnarsdóttir.
The album was originally titled Ókídókí.
Recorded after six months spent living in Berlin (and named for a street address there), the second album by Norwegian songstress Hanne Hukkelberg may be moodier and more mature than her endearingly light-hearted debut, but it's nearly as sweet and, in its way, just as playfully inventive. The occasional electronic elements of Little Things are absent, and the "noise" quotient is relatively subdued, but there's still plenty of atmospheric clutter and clatter: clinking bottles and kitchenware; a bouncing ball; "tea-strainer guitar"; an excellently played typewriter on "The Northwind"; Obelix the cat purring on his own ode (which can't help but recall likeminded noise imps -- and Hanne's former Leaf labelmates -- Psapp); and the Rykestraße itself providing urban ambience on the languorous opener, "Berlin." This bevy of found-sound sources commingles seamlessly and invitingly with the array of "real" instruments -- piano, accordion, prominent double bass (both bowed and plucked), glockenspiel, bass clarinet, and so forth -- to create an impressionistic, Old World Continental vibe with echoes of cabaret jazz, sea shanties, and the fusty, haunted soundscapes of Tom Waits. The effect, though evocative, is kept understated, never overshadowing Hukkelberg's resonant voice, a magnificently versatile instrument that evokes the high lonesome clarity and playful warble of Jolie Holland or Regina Spektor as well as the intoxicating swoops of Billie Holiday, and contributes as much as anything to the richly imbued charm of this album. (Her voice itself creates some of its most memorably personable moments, including the layered speaking and self-harmonizing on the creaky, slightly spooky "Fourteen" and extemporized-sounding passages of wordless a cappella noodling on "Berlin.") Rykestraße 68 is occasionally reminiscent of those artists musically and compositionally as well, blending as it does strands of folk, pop, and jazz, but a closer point of reference would be Fiona Apple's work with Jon Brion, particularly the defiantly idiosyncratic art pop of Extraordinary Machine -- it's equally visionary and emotionally flush, though if anything more accessible. Hukkelberg demonstrates notable range in songwriting throughout -- from the peppy, swinging "A Cheater's Armoury" to the eerie suicide shanty "The Pirate" to the tense "Ticking Bomb," which cheekily incorporates the familiar C minor prelude from Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier -- although her draining, emotionally wracked re-imagining of the Pixies' "Break My Body" may well be the album's greatest highlight. [The 2008 North American edition, arriving a year and a half after the album's original Norwegian release on Propellor, includes a tender live reading of "Searching" from Little Things and a video for "A Cheater's Armoury."]
