Frida Hyvönen: Silence Is Wild
MP3  $9.99     CD  $12.99    

On Silence is Wild, Hyvönen continues to take an utterly modern approach to classic songwriting forms: blending the confessional with the fictional; mixing wit with a sexuality that shifts from the refined to the raw; all the while using language which dances effortlessly between the timeless and the contemporary, referencing high art and pop culture in a transcendent manner which masterfully put Hyvönen at the top of a new international class of singer-songwriters.

Frida Hyvönen: Until Death Comes
MP3  $9.99     CD  $12.99     LP  $11.00    

Carving a path through the fertile land of Sweden, Frida Hyvönen is a talented piano-based songwriter in the vein of Laura Nyro with a passionate bite and a voice like an icicle that cuts deep. Recorded in the legendary Atlantis studio in Stockholm and co-produced with Jari Haapalainen, Frida's debut record, Until Death Comes features a raw home-recording feel not dissimilar to the Stones' Beggar's Banquet, Joni Mitchell's Blue or Carole King's Tapestry. Loved in her home country, she's just beginning to peek out into the rest of the world by touring in support of country-mates Jens Lekman, José Gonzalaz and the Concretes (who originally released Until Death Comes in Scandinavia on their own Licking Fingers imprint).
