Introducing…Maggie Bjorklund

Coming Home is a solo outing from Denmark’s Maggie Bjorklund, released via the excellent Bloodshot Records.

The album is a wonderful mix of instrumentals and collaborations with other artists such as Rachel Flotard, Jon Auer and best of all, Mrs Mackerel’s fave, the gravel voiced crooner Mark Lanegan. Meanwhile more Mrs M faves in the shape of Joey Burns and John Convertino of Calexico provide the backing ensemble. As you might hope, it delivers a wonderfully low-key and atmospheric mix of alt-country and folk, that is by turns spectral, haunting, and evocative.

Check out one of collaborations with Mr Lanegan, the marvellous Intertwined.

Order from Bloodshot Records here or in the UK from Amazon here.
