Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

MAGGIE BJORKLUND

Coming Home

2011-05-09

Between the moody instrumentals, the vocal harmonies, and the occasionally surprising instrumentation, “Coming Home” evokes a western noir feel. This may be the debut album from Denmark’s Maggie Bjorklund, but the girl has been around. Most recently, Maggie recorded and toured with Exene Cervenka. For this release, she enlisted the help of the members of Calexico for instrumental backing, featuring herself on pedal steel. Even though her voice is sweet, she is often sharing the vocal spotlight or simply not singing at all. “Coming Home” features guest vocalists such as Mark Lanegan(Screaming Trees) and Jon Auer(Posies). The production by Johnny Sangster is well-done without being fussy. All in all a nice package. Rebecca Ruth
