1 - LINDGREN, RICHARD - A MAN YOU CAN HATE - (CD) 
ROOTSY


In these troubled times, artists seriously consider to stop making CDs and just release songs on myspace or itunes or whatever. Swedish singer/songwriter Richard Lindgren goes the other way. His fourth album A Man You Can Hate is a double CD with 18 new original songs.All involved in this project are of course well aware that this is probably not the smartest move right now, but sometimes you have to defy common sense and just go with your gut feeling.And the gut feeling in this case says that A Man You Can Hate is an important piece of art. Both discs, all 18 songs.The music might be traditional in the Dylan/The Band/Young/Springsteen sense, but Richard Lindgren reaches new levels. As a singer and as a songwriter. We're not talking any light hearted feel-good songs here. In his songs Lindgren deals with love, hatred, loss, self loathing, doubt, dreams and nightmares. It's dark, almost scary, but still enjoyable in a strange way. Much thanks to the dark humor.

4 - LINDGREN, RICHARD - MALMOSTOSO - (CD) 
ROOTSY


When Richard Lindgren a few years ago was invited to tour Italy it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. A couple of wonderful songs came out of it, for instance the magnificent Sundown On A Lemon Tree, but some of suspected that this new found friendship would fade away, due to physical distance and language barriers. We were dead wrong. For Richard Lindgren it was only a beginning and with the new albumMalmostoso the friendship with Italy seems to develop into a love affair.Malmostoso was recorded in Pavia in the north of Italy, not to far from Milano. All the musicians, with a few exceptions, are Italian and most of the songs were written in or inspired by Pavia.The album title Malmostoso is actually not referring to Richard's Swedish home town Malmo. It's a local Italian expression, meaning something like sad and gloomy. Maybe it's the new surrounding that triggered Richard Lindgren? Maybe it's playing with it's playing with musicians with a slightly different approach that inspired him? Regardless, Malmostoso - Richard's 10th studio album - is nothing less than a masterpiece. The songs are powerful, the arrangements and the performances by all involved are top notch.Richard Lindgren is one of the best and most consistent songwriters in Sweden, even in Europe. Over the past 20 years he's recorded somewhere in between 130 and 150 songs of outstanding quality.

All of the original songs on »Sundown On A Lemon Tree' was written in or at least inspired by Italy.»Sundown On A Lemon Tree' also includes an eclectic selection of covers. Songs that Richard been singing live, or maybe only in the shower, for a long time. Check out Stephen Foster's classic »Hard Times', Jimmie Rogers' »My Blue Eyed Jane', the Irish anthem »Danny Boy' and the Dean Martin hit »Return To Me'. An eclectic selection, indeed.
