Songs of Boda (SWE)
This one’s got the blues. Songs of Boda proves that the Mississippi flows through Sweden.
Daniel Skoglund is something like the primary rock of Gothenburg’s indie scene. For more than a decade, the bearded bard and his guitar have been bustling around West Sweden’s cultural center in various set-ups. In addition to numerous others, he’s been a member of both Daniel Norgren’s and the legendary Daniel Johnston’s bands. With his solo project Songs of Boda, Skoglund takes the Mississippi to Sweden. He gently descends into the depths of ancient folk and blues, and he often runs as close to his North American heroes from various eras as hardly any of his contemporaries.
