Stina Nordenstam - Memories Of A Color (1991) [Art Pop / Trip-Hop]



Spun the wheel and this hit. Not a bad way to start the day. A jazzy, sprightly debut from one of Sweden's underrated singer-songwriters. She gets compared to Bjork and Kate Bush a lot, but I think Stina has the tendency to lean in towards jazzier, more Baroque territory at times (which is what interested me in picking up her first two albums about eight years ago).

This opening cut is something that sounds like it could have been recorded anytime between '91 and now. An aural portrait about losing something and the elusive search that follows. Nothing that will shake your foundations, but it has some nice dynamics. There's also a lot of little touches that bring in those Nordic jazz influences too, adding to the overall flavor.
