Swedish travelling minstrel Rickard Jäverling presents further moments of heartfelt, folk-inspired beauty. With banjo, drums and guitar, "Three Sisters" (which also featured on his Two Times Five Lullaby) distills a Tortoise-inspired post-rock intelligence blended with traditional folk. "Västbacken" is a hazy instrumental piece of folk poetry bringing to mind bubbling streams and the beauty of a childish midsummer adventure. The EP's defining moment is the 7-minute epic "Sultan," which takes the Chicago post-rock formula and re-contextualizes it for 2006, giving us something both reflective and quietly jubilant. Yesternow artists Shoreline finish off with a remix that injects the original track with a sense of fun and playful abandon.
