MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS
FYN 31 / MOST VALUABLE PLAYERS _ YOU IN HONEY
Hugo Lavett, Ivar Lavett, Gunnar Camner and Martin Hwasser are the Most Valuable Players and they already have a hit song, “Stockholm Doesn’t Belong to Me”, which you may have heard on the radio, in a club somewhere or when downloading new pop from some mp3 blog. It can be found on “You in Honey”, the first album from these young fellows from Nacka.
Please take a look at the cover. It could be a children’s book full of colour and adventure, yet it contains a record of the very type of pop music which is clearly the sound of the consistent realisation of a splendid idea. Music and people that win your sympathy by their attitude and behaviour: Most Valuable Players. The kind of beauty that lies in frailty: Most Valuable Players.
Swing open your blinds and let the light in, it’s 2006! Invite a dreamy explorer of everyday life. Let’s press Play once more and listen to “A Dream (Dreamt)” being shaped into the knowledge that “Music Breaks Where No Sun Shines”.
Influences used during the recording of the record: new instruments, new technology, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, Italo Calvino, Olivia Tremor Control, Robert Wyatt, New Order, Active Suspension…
