Thomas Denver Jonsson & The September Sunrise – Hope To Her

The latest Swedish cowboy, Jonsson was praised early last year for his subtle-sweet EP Then I Kissed Her Softly. Having trodden European boards with Damien Jurado and Rosie Thomas, the 23-year-old's LP debut roots itself in similar earth. There's much of Jurado in his downcast tremble, while Fredrik Wilde's pedal-steel and Carl Edlom's softly cantering piano brighten the corners. "Shades Of Green" and "Black And Blue" shuffle with the kind of milky-moon sadness Neil Young patented on After The Gold Rush. Elsewhere, there are hints of the Palace Brothers and Low.

There’s much of Jurado in his downcast tremble, while Fredrik Wilde’s pedal-steel and Carl Edlom’s softly cantering piano brighten the corners. “Shades Of Green” and “Black And Blue” shuffle with the kind of milky-moon sadness Neil Young patented on After The Gold Rush. Elsewhere, there are hints of the Palace Brothers and Low. A warm, uncluttered delight. Available at www.kiterecordings.com
