While I catalogue the year’s music and try to catch up on everything I missed, I thought I would pass this along. I downloaded the new EP Tänd eld på dig själv (för det du tror på) by Symfoniorkestern around Thanksgiving and have been really enjoying it.
As closely as I can tell, the EP translates into “Set Fire to Yourself (For What You Believe In)” and came to my attention courtesy of Swedish fetishist website Swedesplease.
It really is a delightful collection and best of all–it is free! As of today, you could still download the EP gratis here. So shop early, meaning now, and give a listen to this lovely bit of work.
You cannot go wrong with an album composed of largely indecipherable characters that you cannot type on an English keyboard.
Tänd eld på dig själv (för det du tror på). The correct translation is: “Set fire to yourself (for what you believe in). Let’s Say We Did is the name of another Swedish band, and Sebastian Fors is the singer of that band.
Thank you and forgive my tortured interpretation!
