Monday, new week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"
"Centralmassivet" is Mr. Thåström's ninth solo album. Industry blues with electronic groove and a soulful singing is his trademark and that is what you will get with this release. Even from an international perspective, Thåström has developed a sound that is unique with Swedish lyrics that is just killing sensitive. And with Pelle Ossler's significantly dangling guitars, Niklas Hellberg's organ, Ulf Rockis Ivarsson bass lines, Mikael Nilzen keyboards, Nikolas Janco's drumming makes "Centralmassivet" another terrific album by Thåström.
The album starts with "Bluesen I Malmö" flows in the same stream as "Jeffrey Lee Pierce", but more deeper and cyrillic. In the dark monotonous electronic shadows of "Körkarlen" I feel lucky and I Just love the sequencer bass that drives the tune forward. The title track is a beautiful ballad with a sensitive Thåström to move forward to the spoken word-rock, Thåström has never been so inspired by Bruno K Öijer as at "Old Point Bar". "Låt Det Goda" is a captivating tune, cruel and fuzzy to make a break in the album to a senselessly beautiful ballad "Aldrig Av Med Varandra" where we hear the voice of LaGaylia Frazier in the background. The magically "Som mästarna målat himlen" where Pugh Rogefeldt appears among the songwriters is a real highlight on the album. "Karaokebaren" is a powerful tune, smokey and Industrial. "Natten För Det Här" is a slow piece and ends the album lovely!
The album contains 9 tunes that clocks in at almost 45 min. Released September 29, 2017. It was recorded at Hansa-studio in Berlin and produced by Thåström and Niklas Hellberg.
Sum: "Centralmassivet" is a sensitive and very beautiful album that is a must for every Thåström fan.
