Boomkat product review for:

porn sword tobacco - Explains Freedom

Let's not beat around the bush here; 'Explains Freedom' is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Whilst it's cripplingly easy to become hyperbolic about such things, I don't think it would be overly stretching credibility to suggest that Porn Sword Tobacco's debut full-length proper may just invoke a similar rush of profound acceptance as watching a crimson sun-rise or glimpsing a shooting star. Alright; that is hyperbolic bollocks, but 'Explains Freedom' is almost indescribably good. Recorded in the heart of a Swedish forest, it's easy to imagine Henrik Jonsson (aka Porn Sword Tobacco) somehow channelled the dust speckled sunlight into his equipment, with songs such as 'Praying With Benny' and 'Old Booze, New Friends' possessing an emotionally clamorous quality that remains teasingly out of sight. Broadly comparable to artists such as Marsen Jules and The Boats, Jonsson nonetheless sounds absolutely nothing like either, combining warm analogue melodies and rain-fall one moment ('Naturens Kraft Och Klang') before coaxing you in on bleached piano and Badalamenti synths the next ('Soft airgun&electric'). So lovely it makes your teeth hurt, 'Explains Freedom' takes on Harold Budd and Eno at their own game... and wins.
