ALBUM#6 OUT 2017 More info TBA I'M KINGFISHER AVIAN (2014) KLP 2080 KITE RECORDINGS / PLAYGROUND MUSIC RELEASED SEPTEMBER 17TH 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.
