Martina Almgren - Peace of Mind

The Swedish drummer and composer Martina Almgren has created a mesmerising second solo album, Peace of Mind. In this very playful recording she returns to her musical roots in collaboration with saxophonist Elin Forkelid, guitarr player Mattias Torell and Owe Almgren electric bass. A meeting between earthy grooves and ethereal tunes in an organic way. Vivid and with a very tangible, dynamic beat.

        Strax före Solnedgången

Strax före solnedgången skälver alltid träden
Inte av vind, men av kärlek till varandra
Trastarna sjunger sångens död
Ingen vet hur länge natten varar
