If Parasol get their way, then the airwaves will be overwhelmed by lush and lovely Nordic pop. To this end, they've rightfully given sanctuary to Aerospace. Their new mini-album, In a Place of Silver Eaves, is a wonderful slice of Swedish pop, which is inspired greatly by Sixties-era British Invasion pop, which is...well, you get the point. "December Slow" starts off with a shuffle of acoustic guitars that gives way to a gentle yet kinda sorta psych-pop instrumentation--all enhanced by a lovely Swedish-speaking singer singing in English voice--that accent makes the vocals so rich! Aerospace offer up six songs all cooked to this basic recipe, and I'm really fond of them all. I love "The Great Divide" and especially "Tenderness is the Plight of the Weakerthan," which has a really great synth line. Aerospace sound as rich and as classy as the suits worn by Merseybeat bands back in 1964, and that can't be beat! This is simply a smart record for smart people, and the smart lads at Parasol should be commended for bringing this to our attention!
