punky's dilemma ~ echelon (junk, 2006)

named after simon and garfunkel song, this trio comes from malmö, sweden and made its first appearance on a labrador's compilation. 'echelon' is their latest release and has five dreamy songs filled with male-female vocal, brit-folkish acoustic with flirtations with 60's pop, lovely orchestrastions and an autumn atmosphere.
the opening track 'shooting stars' sets the record mood: delicate, calm, brilliant melodies and arrangements. if this is the first song you listen, like i did, you'll certainly be impressed.
followed by 'the side effect of violence', an acoustic ballad with beautiful guitars and piano with melancholic lyrics.. "there's a song within the silence, that i wish is you, a side effect of violence that i'd never knew".
'scandinavia' ends the ep beautifully with heavenly orchestrations.
perfect for winter cold days and low temperatures.

Leave it to the Swedes to find that perfect combo of 60s pop, girl-boy vocals and an autumn feeling. THanks for bringing it to us.
