Moon­light Here SEA LION RECORD­INGS 8/10 Ex­ile on mane street: beau­ti­ful night-time lis­ten­ing from the so­porific Swede

For singer-song­writer linn os­ter­berg, who records her sad, sleepy songs in her gothen­berg apart­ment, at­mos­phere is ev­ery­thing. on this, her self-re­leased sec­ond lP, her work is in­creas­ingly di­aphanous – there are lofi laments that re­call Jes­sica Pratt and Sibylle Baier, such as “Don’t Blame The Moon” and “Sub­ur­ban Skies”, but much of this brief, nine-track record is taken up with float­ing in­stru­men­tals such as the gaseous, piano-led “lupines” or the clos­ing, metal­lic am­bi­ence of “Cloak on”. It hardly fights for at­ten­tion, but on head­phones on a dark night, there’s noth­ing bet­ter.
