cd cover Lisa o Piu
When This Was The Future (Subliminal Sounds)

This is the debut full-length release by Sweden's Lisa Isaksson and her band Lisa o Piu. Raised in a small town on the outskirts of Stockholm, she spent most of her time drawing sketches in horse stables. Later, these horse drawings would become song lyrics accompanied by her mother's old guitar, recorded on a 4-track. Through the years, she eventually formed the band Piu together with her school buddies, and their first single was released in Scotland in 2007. The single got a lot of good reviews and Lisa and Piu gave a couple of concerts on the British Isles as well as home in Stockholm. They also had the opportunity to perform with the British folk musician Roger Wootton who led the legendary acid-folk band Comus during the early 1970s. The performances went so well that they were released as a live album. As summer came and turned Sweden into a green and pleasant place again, the core members of Piu went to a small cottage in the beautiful archipelago north of Stockholm and recorded what was to become When This Was The Future. The album is filled with delicious and bewitching woodland folk hymnals, eloquent yet eerie, and led by Lisa's gossamer vocals, as delicate as a wavering candle flame. The album is produced by Mattias Gustavsson (Life On Earth!/Dungen), and it somehow divinely conjures the essence of Linda Perhacs, Bridget St. John, Joni Mitchell, Sandy Denny, Vashti Bunyan, and Joanna Newsom into one singular siren, but with a thoroughly unique, thoroughly haunting delivery.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
