That we live in a world changed is beyond question. Since 2015’s Zenith, Berlin-based songwriter Molly Nilsson has surrendered to the world, traveling from Mexico to Glasgow, observing the changing socio-political landscape and imagining a better world. For an artist who has so successfully created her own environment and gradually let others in, her 8th studio album Imaginations sees Nilsson directly engaging with her surroundings, engendering change and allowing love in. Imaginations dreams big, recasting storming, stadium-sized pop into the internal language of the solo auteur. Imaginations is not escapism, it’s a kaleidoscope and an alternative view, an agent of change.
Sean Nicholas Savage (Arbutus Records)
Prolific songwriter and lush indie balladeer Sean Nicholas Savage came up as part of a thriving Montreal underground scene, unleashing his warped takes on new romantic pop beginning around 2007, shortly before the release of his 2008 album, Summer 5000. Savage recorded and released music often, doing scads of cassette albums, culminating with a highly active 2011 wherein he released three albums: Tripple Midnight Karma, Won Ton Jaz, and Flamingo. Part of the scene of friends that gave rise to artists like Mac DeMarco, Grimes, and Doldrums, Savage performed often at the Lab Synthèse performance space and was one of the first artists signed to Lab Synthèse-affiliated label Arbutus Records. He also co-wrote and sang many of the songs on the debut album of his friends' band Silly Kissers. Extended touring and 2013's fantastic Other Life brought Savage to the attention of a larger fan base, and he followed in 2014 with the similarly R&B-rooted Bermuda Waterfall. Recorded in Santa Monica, California and released in 2015, the more uptempo but still spectacularly slinky Other Death saw him collaborate with Agor of Blue Hawaii and Errhead of Doldrums, among other guests.
