Published Jan 05, 2015Johan Agebjörn normally plays a behind-the-scenes role in his collaborations with singer Sally Shapiro, but here their roles are reversed. Agebjörn is the principal artist on his new song "The Boy Who Thought It Was a Good Idea to Cry," while Shapiro gets secondary billing as a featured guest.
This comes from Agebjörn's new album Notes, which is based around the electric piano sound from a consumer-grade '80s keyboard called the Casio MT-52. That keyboard patch is front and centre here, and it's joined by tinkling piano, plinking bells, and swaths of ethereal ambience that include Shapiro's wordless coos.
Hear it below. Notes arrives on February 10 through Paper Bag Records.
