‘Two Left Feet’ Album
Sweden’s Rasmus Faber has certainly had a colourful career over the past 20 years journeying through many aspects of the music spectrum from House to Jazz and beyond. His new album ‘Two Left Feet’ sees him deliver his most delightful project to date, enlisting a plethora of talented singer/songwriters on the project.
Opening up with the heartfelt song, ‘Animal’, is Denver’s Magic Woman (aka Arielle Vakni); half Swedish-half Japanese pop artist Maia Hirasawa lends her charismatic tones to the beautiful piano led outing ’Shut Down’; musical chameleon and regular cohort Renae Rain, tells the powerful story of ‘Do My Best’ and also performs on the thought provoking ‘We Don’t Waste The Time’.
Stockholm songbird Sara Steele’s sweet, comforting vocals glide over a soundtrack of emotive cinematic strings and earthy afro vibes on ‘Good Morning June’; Japanese singer Marter’s breathy tones light up the acoustic stunner ‘Diary.’ German star Alexandra Prince’s candied performance simply mesmerises on the cheerful woody outing ‘Daisy’; and bringing the magic to the album’s earthy title track is Swedish indie pop and country singer Frida Öhrn (Oh Laura, Öhrn).
There are also 2 wonderful instrumental pieces from Rasmus – the afrocentric currents of ‘Son Of A Marimba Maker’ and the enchanting perpetual motion of the piano and bass driven ‘On The Train For Ise’. All recorded with live instruments, this album comes with house, folk and afro undercurrents underpinned by a lush organic feel that makes for a beautiful listening experience.
