Last Days of April
Sea Of Clouds Tapete Records

Article written by Ged M - Jul 13, 2015

last_days_of_april.jpg
This is a Swedish band with a 20 year history but this, the ninth album, is the first one we’ve heard. They’ve reportedly gone back to basics with this record, recording it live to tape in two days, using analogue equipment. That works for the Americana-inspired music that they produce, whether it’s the country-ish ‘The Way Things Were’, steeped in wailing pedal steel guitar, or the Grandaddy-like ‘Every Boy’s Dream’, a deep and pensive piece with tinkling piano. The pedal steel on ‘Everybody Knows’ adds mournful country touches while ‘Sea Of Clouds’ owes something to Neil Young with its gently buzzing guitars and simple percussion. ‘Something For Everyone’ is the best thing by a country mile though, ultra-catchy, jangly Americana that comes across like late Tom Petty. Melody is certainly no stranger to Karl Larsson and colleagues, and their latest album is mature (they have been around two decades, after all), melodic Americana that would appeal to fans of a certain strain of country-flecked pop.
