"Henrik Jonsson from Göteborg has recorded a couple of records in the past you might know or not, but it was not until last summer that this particular project came together. The tracks on this debut release (a full-length is already in the making, the studio has been booked again for the summer) are unique and blend the genius of ambient masterpieces from composers like Harold Budd with something incredible. A burst of noise, crackles and static. Where other musicians use those elements as tiny ingredients for their music, Porn Sword Tobacco is more like broken radio, tuned into a station playing the most beautiful music you have ever heard in your life. Many famous musicians recorded in this studio, up in the north of Sweden. Ever since the 60s, the studio crew has been building one of the most impressive sound-archives in the world, a world recorded on reel-to-reel tape. Amazing acoustics and a collection of wonderful instruments and the constant presence of a very unique ambience make you think that Porn Sword Tobacco might be the modern version of Budd and Eno's The Pearl. It just draws you in, does not let go. Every track tells a very specific story, assembles sketches, drifts off, picks up again, re-adjusts itself all the time, levels noise, piano, guitar, organ, bass , thinks of new chords. Is there a better soundtracks for every season, month, day, hour, second?"
