    KETO – Superstar
    MYHEARTISAMETRONOME – Tierp
    VANWYK – Carolina’s Anatomy
    VARIOUS GUISES – Green
    ZEROWE – Remember Me

    My fave of this LP is Van Wyk’s “Carolina’s Anatomy” for the perfect match of vocals, lyrics and the atmosphere they created to embed the message.

    ZEROWE’s “Remember Me” sounds – and is created – quite different, but here as well there is a (to me) perfect match of lyrics (message) and vocals (mood).

    Such match of message and mood makes what differs poetry from telling stories and arts from artificial – creates an aura that remains when all sound(th)ing has seized.

    KETO – Superstar … I loved the vulnerability evoking vibes of the vocals, asked for the lyrics to read while listening (important to non-native speakers I state) and found that this piece isn’t of that kind to listen to again and again, but to keep it in mind heard once.

    … and now I’m diving back to the bunch to search for Emily Lockett’s track within batch 226 – as there is nothing comparing to such sportsmanship of giving a listening and voting to other’s tracks, it’s all for the arts! :)

    Its VERY irritating having to leave some out that you want to vote for … Slimmie …Pale Face …Wives of Farmers could all have been included.
    But if you don’t select 5 you don’t take part.
    Apologies to the three I had to leave out.
    IMHO this is a very strong LP.
