What are you listening to, Nerina?


Nerina Pallot, the Brit-nominated singer-songwriter, returns in style with her new album ’Year of the Wolf’ out May 30th on Geffen records.

The album is entirely produced with guitar legend Bernard Butler and contains euphoric pop songs with that big heart-bursting choruses we dig. It´s life in widescreen, big letters and ”all the way into the tiles”

Nerina, born in the Kentucky-year of 1975, wrote and recorded the album during her pregnancy last year. She did have a baby boy (Wolfgang Amadeus) in September 2010 and a great album this May. Please check out the highly addictive first single ’Put Your Hands Up’.

Nerina Pallot – Fires


Jag tror det var Nikki Sixx, den gamle hjälten, som tyckte att Nerina Pallot var bra. Motleybasisten måste haft en gubbsjuk baktanke. För Nerina Pallot gör musik som en hotellhiss hade ratat.

Hon blandar lite sommarrock med ballader, piano blandat med stråkar och gitarrer. Hon sjunger intensägande. Hon kör till Idaho i texterna och jag följer inte med.

Sjätte låten, Mr King, är bra. Den räddar upp betyget till en tvåa. Annars är ”Fires” en skiva som får mig att längta bort. Exempelvis till Nina Perssons ”A camp” platta. Se där, en bra skiva.

Betyg: två av sju K7´s.
Drick till: Frozen Margarita, virgin.
