The Slanted City: The Slanted City

Swedish musician Erik Nilsson leans heavily on Radiohead's Ok Computer the self-titled debut album by his one-man project The Slanted City. Jagged synths, piano, dry percussion and sligthly distorted guitar underpin his songs about the urge to get away from it all.

Where he wants to go exactly remains unknown, but his sonic trip in itself is very rewarding. Whether he is staring at the sky to follow a flock of wild geese (I Saw the Skein) or contemplates earlier attempts (False Starts), there is always te lure of the horizon and what wonders could be laying ahead. Nilsson wants to go Further and this album is a pretty good start.

The Slanted City is released via Hidden Shoal Records.
