MIMI PAGE: Peculiar review from Sweden

I could not resist reposting this Swedish review of Mimi's album. The exquisite use of English, particularly in the last sentence is unparalelled. I am pretty sure it is complimentary as well..

Things are really starting to happen for Los Angeles based artist Mimi Page, her debut album "Breathe me in" was released in February this year and the song "New" caught the attention of Jefferson Starship´s management.

They liked it so much that they asked Mimi Page to open for Jefferson Starship on their 40th anniversary tour, what the audience will get is not exactly a party starter but more of a soothing musical experience that will get the crowd in a relaxing state. Mimi´s songs bring thoughts to Tori Amos and Enya, quite piano based but also in a slow dance electronica way.

At first, I didn´t enjoy the album that much but it grows and now I have become to like it. Songs that stand out are "All I need" and "My vanilla sky", the album is co-produced by Warren Huart (The Fray, Aerosmith) so it´s not cowshit so to speak.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
