INGA – ‘TWO DANGERS’ EXCLUSIVE AUSTRALIAN VERSION
Inga Liljestrom‘s new album Two Dangers is finally shipping! This is an exclusive-to-Australia version of the album (which is released overseas simultaneously) featuring additional tracks not included on the European version. It comes with lyric booklet/photos in a gorgeous digi-pak. 13 tracks in all, some of which were previewed on the 2012 tour-only ltd-edition Songs Of Sorrow… New Inga compositions join traditional songs like the Karen Dalton fave Katie Cruel as well as beautiful covers versions of Some Say I Got Devil (Melanie Safka) and Cat Stevens‘ Trouble.
In Inga’s own words… “My inspiration: a tattered picture I ripped from a magazine of a woman sitting on her bed smoking a cigarette, naked, her long hair wild and disheveled, paint pealing off the walls. I imagined these as the songs she would listen to. The recordings feature my friends playing resophonic guitars, banjos, burnished horns, spooky musical saws, violins, creaky boards and dusty boots. The songs are a mix of traditional folk and original songs penned while living with my sister in the mountains influenced by Appalachian mountain music and a touch of ’50s romance. I have no idea why my muse presented me with this style of music, but I loved singing it and found it a refuge for broken hearts and lonely nights.”
