Henrik Jonsson hails from Göteborg, Sweden and this is his first full-length album and his second release for City Centre Offices. Last year, Jonsson, aka Porn Sword Tobacco, set the speed for the future of ambient-inspired campfire music. Reminding us of the possible greatness of pioneers like Harold Budd and Brian Eno, Jonsson managed to adapt the endlessness of a piano tone for our digital, laptop-based generation. Taking off in his comfortable domain of introverted crackles, nature sounds, and tiny piano fragments, Explains Freedom switches moods as fast as a turntablist changes his records and offers snapshots of a slow-motion world we all miss. "Eudaimonia" is a blueprint for your early morning wake up call, "Watt Towers" should play as a loop in every crib, "Talk is Cheap, Swords are Sharp" is what you feel when you see the sun coming up behind a big mountain, "Folkhemmet" is the dance the elderly dance when they fall in love and "Futuristic Rasta Money" makes you realize that Henrik Jonsson is not the person you thought he was. Explains Freedom is peaceful and hopeful -- as if the world is a flower.
