5.0 out of 5 stars Big - Little, Little - Big Music 25 May 2011
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
I won't beat about the bush here. Jeniferever are a Swedish band
and 'Silesia', with the exception of a few minor side-steps, is their
third album and it really is rather lovely. Very, very lovely in fact.

They have been compared to Sigur Ros but I found myself reponding
to Jeniferever's soundworld in a far more immediate way than I
have so-far managed to with regard to their Icelandic contemporaries.

The band comprise Kristofer Jonson, Lead vocals/guitars and keyboards;
Martin Sandstrom, guitars/vocals; Olle Bilius. bass and Fredrik Aspelin, drums.

There are nine tracks to consider. The tunes are strong; the arrangements
dense but not cluttered or forbidding (there is a warm seam running through
the album which reflects the band's fondeness for eighties romanticism) and
in Mr Jonson the ensemble possesses a fine front man who's fragile but
distinctive voice (at times he sounds curiously like the love-child of
Neil Young and Neil Tennant - if such a thing were possible!) brings a
sense of pathos and honest emotional clout to the proceedings.

Standout tracks include 'Waifs & Strays', a song which (especially in
the well-constructed guitar parts) had me thinking about early 70's YES;
'The Beat Of Our Own Blood', a tight, tidy and wistful song, all jingly-
jangly pulsing rhythms and a beautifully litling central vocal performance;
the atmospheric and lyrically beguiling 'Where The Hills Fall Toward The Ocean'
and the haunting and curiously affecting 'A Drink To Remember' (for my
money the strongest track by a mile) which messed with my heartstrings
in a good way. In fact, there is very little at all here not to love.

'Silesia' will doubtless go largely unnoticed in the listening world.
I hope these few clumsy reflections will steer you gently into their path.

Highly Recommended.
