Been listening to a couple of kind of low key singer songwriter albums and I love them.
Wooh Dang by Daniel Norgren
Daniel Norgren is a singer songwriter from Sweden. It’s my first time listening to him but I love this album. If anything it reminds me of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Especially the louder songs on the album like this, and a couple of others. It’s a mix of classic sounding blues-rock songs like this and some absolutely beautiful ballads, which are mostly direct and simple love songs (like “So Glad” and “You’re the Day that’s Just Begun”). I don’t know how to describe but it’s one of the purest and most genuine sounding albums that I’ve heard in a long time.
In the Shape of a Storm by Damien Jurado
Damien Jurado is an artist who’s had a long career but i only started listening to him last year after his excellent album “The Horizon Just Laughed”. In The Shape of a Storm is a very stripped down follow up where it’s just him and an acoustic guitar. But for what it is, I’m really enjoying it. Jurado has a really expressive voice. I was going to say that Daniel Norgren sounds like another Swedish artist, The Tallest Man on Earth (whose album The Wild Hunt is one i’ve been listening to regularly for nearly a decade), but if anything the style of this album is closer to TTMOE, although Jurado’s voice is much deeper and lower.
