Pure-O, the new LP by Berlin-via-Norway musician Kari Jahnsen aka Farao, is a prog-pop exposition on the curious dichotomy between beauty and destructiveness in sex and relationships. Musically, she references 90’s R&B, and the untapped goldmine of Soviet disco. But the most important pillar of Pure-O– its living, breathing — is entirely Farao’s own.

As half of Teengirl Fantasy, Logan Takahashi is best known for making glassy, expansive tracks. Like many classically trained musicians, Logan Takahashi didn’t take the techniques he learned at Oberlin Conservatory as gospel.

Without pretension, Stockholm’s Simon Stålhamre, the gentleman behind Small Feet, covers huge swaths of emotional and intellectual ground as casually as if he were strolling out for a smoke, journeying through a shapeshifting landscape of dreams towards what another Scandinavian, Prince Hamlet, called “the undiscovered country”.
Teengirl Fantasy, the duo of Logan Takahashi and Nick Weiss, return with ‘8AM’, their first full-length since 2012’s ‘Tracer’.
