Richard Lindgren :: Death & Love

by

Het waren barre tijden voor Richard Lindgren. De Zweedse singer/songwriter en vaandeldrager van de Europese Americana verloor de afgelopen jaren zijn vader én zijn moeder en zijn nieuwe plaat Death & Love draagt daar de sporen van. Het is in elk opzicht een rauw album geworden, emotioneel in tekstuele zin, ongecontroleerd in muzikale zin. Het ontroert van de eerste noot van het titelnummer tot de laatste noot van afsluiter Where Did You Go, Little Boys. Death & Love is een meedogenloze kippenvel-CD en Lindgren bewijst wederom dat hij de Tom Waits van het Noorden is.

”Death and Love” is the Swedish singer/songwriter Richard Lindgren’s 11th album since the debut back in 1996 and the first one since the acclaimed ”Malmostoso” from 2016. It’s been a few years and it might be tempting to think that the Poet has been lazy. But not at all – on the contrary, it’s been a very creative period for Richard. But due to circumstances beyond his control, he’s not been able to spend as much time in the recording studio as he would have needed to get all his new songs on tape. Richard lost both his parents in recent years and he had to deal with his grief and a lot of practicalities. A house to take care of, in need of reroofing, and wood to cut…
