Even Johansen

Quiet & Still

Fiveone

Straight outta Norway comes this moving release from singer songwriter Even Johansen. Touching on vocals that call out with a nod of the throat to Thom Yorke, Evan moves through these eleven songs with a steady style and gracefulness that leaves him standing ahead of most of his North American peers. His accent gives the songs a bit of a British feel, but the music is almost stuck in some American back road. Smoother than the gravel and dust that you might expect to be kicked up, it’s more along a kind of Granddaddy psychedelic indie Western road feel, with a touch of a Travis styled sunset falling along the background. It’s summer evening music, warm and soft, sipping slow drinks and watching the highways go by without you. Lovely sad.
