Swedish Neo-Prog-Band Paatos have entered my collection. The album Kallocain is their second one, the debut album Timeloss was re-released in Europe just in December 2004. Kallocain is a wonderful blend of rock, a bit of Trip-Hop and a slight hint of jazz, all wonderfully accompanied by the soothing voice of singer Petronella Nettermalm. She can create haunting sounds that sometimes remind me of Björk (but not too much!) or Massive Attack. And with Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson doing the final mix, this is really the perfect album for those gray and rainy days that seem to make the Swiss winter this year. Well… if you have the right kind of music, even such days can turn into something beautiful!
Next to come: Mansun – Six… stay tuned! 🙂
