1 - BASKO BELIEVES - IDIOT'S HILL - (CD) 
ROOTSY


Basko Believes (Swedish singer-songwriter Johan Orjansson) took all the money he had, bought a plane ticket, and flew over the Atlantic to record his album Idiots Hill. He followed his heart. Hed received a series of emails from McKenzie Smith and Joey McClennan from Midlake who had repeatedly reminded him of their invitation to come over and record an album with musicians from their highly acclaimed local network. The plan was to record the album at Redwood studio in Denton, a town famed for its music scene. So how do Basko Believes and his "Idiots Hill" sound? Johan knew exactly what he was doing when he went to Denton, Texas. Not only would he get to work with some of the most highly respected musicians in the alternative rock/indiepop scene. In Midlakes music there is something that Johan had always heard in his own head but somehow hadnt managed to capture on his earlier albums. With tasteful, rather sophisticated arrangements and rich orchestration, Midlake succeed in creating those images and atmospheres which Johan had lacked in his music. It was very clear to him that Mckenzie Smith and Joey McLellan were the gatekeepers to that sound he was after. They had access to the best musicians The kind who could manage the balancing act of filling out the songs on " Idiots Hill" with beautiful arrangements and big orchestration without for a millisecond distracting from Johans sensitive voice and feeling for pop and melodies. He was proved right.At the core of all the songs is Johans carefully crafted personal compositions and his voice which has ever been more convincing. On top of this is the rhythm section with Mckenzie Smith on drums, Joey McClellan on guitars and Aaron McClellan (from Israel Nash Gripkas band) on bass. The other musicians playing are Eric Swanson on pedal steel (ING), Kaela Sinclair on vocals, Evan Jacobs (former Midlake) on keyboards, Jesse Chandler (Midlake) on flute, Buffi Jacobs ( The polyphonic spree) on cello, Daniel Hart ( former The polyphonic spree) on fiddle and David Pierce, Pete Clagett and David Monsch on horns.
