Song of the Day - November 7, 2006

Global warming apparently is not all bad, for as the temperatures rise around the world, particularly in Scandinavia, the musical talent is released in a torrent of excellent artists. Swedish vocalist and pianist Frida Hyvonen has created a sonically sparse, but beautiful album with Until Death Comes. Consisting primarily of Frida's vocals and piano accompaniment, her music echoes the melancholy nature of the Scandinavia environment. Her songs remind me of Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez. I loved the opening track "I Drive My Friend," but "Today, Tuesday" is my favorite track. Frida's voice is hauntingly beautiful, the piano is used sparingly, but to perfection. I can only hope we will hear more from Frida. Click here to listen.
