[deleted] This is the second album from relative newcomer Folie, aka Stefan Thor, resident of Hässleholm in south Sweden, a town which also brought forth similarly melodic minimal electronic artists such as Sophie Rimheden and Andreas Tilliander. Thor's debut album Misspass received enthusiastic reviews in the international press; German magazine de:bug rated Misspass the second best album of 2002, and declared him artist of the month. The highly-anticipated Eyepennies will leave no one disappointed, as it delivers 12 stunning tracks of swirling electronica with undeniable pop appeal. Eyepennies furthers Folie's music as harmonic but not too sweet, with clever beats and funky, shifting basslines that are surprisingly deft and delicate, taking you on a trip into the melancholic soundscape of south Sweden, where Thor has been developing his unique sound over the years. His slightly surreal constructions of slanted melodies, groovy little beats and laid-back harmonies create a flow for easy afternoons as well as for sweaty clubs, where his intense and freaky live shows leave the audience screaming for more.
