AVIAN (2014 / KLP2080 / Kite Recordings) Out September 17th 2014 on red transparent vinyl Avian, the fifth solo album by Swedish indie/folk artist I'm Kingfisher (Thomas Jonsson) is by every mean his most compelling and accessible material to date, presenting a wide variety of songs, from intimate ballads to up-tempo pop and even the brief excursion into tex-mex estetic and electronica. Where its predecessor Arctic dwelved in icy blues atmosphere, Avian is filled with warm air, sprinkled with acoustic lush. Guest appearances by american experimental artist Benoit Pioulard, Elina Johansson of Dear Euphoria, Helena Arlock from Me and My Army and C-J Larsgården from A Perfect Friend/Yrsel/Ondo 1.
