This is the second full-length album by Sweden's Anna Järvinen, the follow-up to her debut Jag Fick Feeling. Man Var Bland Molnen ("One Was Among The Clouds") is produced and recorded by Gustav Ejstes (Dungen), who also plays a variety of instruments on the album. Other musicians include Reine Fiske, Fredik Swahn, Johan Holmegard, Leo Svensson, Mattias Bergqvist and Anders Nygårds. The collaboration with Dungen already began on Anna's first record, who participated on the main part of the album. Concerning the choice of Ejstes as producer, Anna says in Sonic magazine (Sweden) that "nobody has like Gustav, silently and immediately, understood my music. I wanted to try and leave the songs with him so he could put his mark on and in them." Seldom has there been such a breakthrough for an artist on a small label in Sweden as with the release of Jag Fick Feeling. Anna was nominated for a Swedish Grammy and P3 Guld prize, awarded Stockholm City's music prize, and was interviewed in virtually every Swedish paper. The record also got a lot of attention in Finland and Anna toured in both countries during fall 2007 and spring/summer 2008. The first single from Man Var Bland Molnen is the track "Äppelöga," ("Apple-Eye"), a song with an almost countrified, Americana swing. All tracks, of course, feature Anna's sweetly breathy voice in Swedish, and a wholesome helping of piano, harmonica, flute, strings, and laid-back acoustic guitar -- lending the whole affair a soft/light rock/California morning sunniness. Once again transcends all pop language barriers through its apple-cheeked charm. "i wrote some songs about sex, sorrow abuse, falling in love and pure summery frustration. then i lost my way. you and i are the only ones left now here, among the clouds. come." --Anna Järvinen
