Björn Kleinhenz creates pleasant folk-pop with a romantic edge. Like a Swedish version of something by Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam, “The Mountain Pt. 2” features a soft acoustic guitar, finger-plucked to a calming bliss and accompanied by beautiful vocals. Kleinhenz coos: I am a mountain now, I am the sea and sky, I am a puff of smoke coming through your window in the chorus. Musical and vocal, “The Mountain Pt. 2” hits all the right notes.
I like this: “The Mountain Pt. 2” is off an EP titled after a short-lived separatist political party in Sweden that, in 1982, received 2 votes — one by the founding member and the other by his wife. The EP is called Dackes Drabanter and it’s available now from Gold Robot Records.
