Extreme is Molly Nilsson’s tenth studio album.?! Recorded in 2019 and throughout the 2020 global pandemic at home in Berlin, it is a departure for Nilsson, an explosion of angry love.?! It’s an album of anthems for the jilted generation, soaked with joy and offering solace, bristling with distorted, metal guitars and planet-sized choruses that bring light to the dark centre of the galaxy.?! It’s an album of the times, by the times and for the people.?! It’s a record about power.?! About how to fight it, how to take it and how to share it. Every song here is a gleaming gem in a pouch of jewels.?! Examples include “Kids Today,” where Nilsson is the voice of wisdom, archly commenting on the eternal struggle between youth and authority.?! “They Will Pay” brings big, distorted power chords in the form of a agit-punk, pop slammer.?! Of course, when Molly Nilsson does punk pop one gets the catchiest chorus this side of The Bangles or The Nerves.?!

When Molly Nilsson began recording her second album Europa in 2009, the world seemed to be at a turning point and she along with it.?! In the aftermath of a global financial crash, at the dawn of a new decade, the Stockholm-born, Berlin-based singer was busy molding her songwriting into an idiosyncratic, personal mythology that would take her to every continent, speaking directly to hearts in every corner of the globe.?! The first album on her own Dark Skies Association imprint, the first recorded in her home studio The Lighthouse, Europa broke new ground for Nilsson at the time.?! But also it spoke earnestly to the world about an idealism, an openness and hope that has not dimmed in the eleven years since its release.?! Europa contains the songs of a young, idealistic songwriter coming to terms with her genius for cutting to the chase, saying it as it is and, most importantly, as it should be.?! Over ten years on the artist’s vim and urge for...more..?!

Long overdue reissue of this Molly Nilsson early release (her fourth), now repackaged and reissued via Night School / DSA.?!  By the time Molly Nilsson released History, she had already established a fledgling cult status built on homemade YouTube videos and home-burnt CDRs.?! Writing from a distance, it’s clear that this is the first classic album in her canon and arguably a classic of the 21st Century underground music panorama.?! While the methodology onit hadn’t changed from Nilsson’s previous 3 albums—it was recorded solo at The Lighthouse, Nilsson’s home studio based on a Berlin crossroads—on this record the songwriting reached a new peak and the emotional scythe cut deeper.?! Here, Nilsson managed to combine a cosmic, outward looking perspective with an intimate knowledge of the human condition and its place in these turbulent times.?! In truth, no other songwriter has excavated the modern psyche so clearly and perfectly..?!

Twenty Twenty is Molly Nilsson’s eighth album: the latest opus of an artist in a constant state of development and strength.?! In 2018, with the climate changing, democracy crumbling, inequality and injustice erupting, this album examines the near future, seeking clarity, reflection, renewal and opportunity.?! It contains anthems so tall as to induce vertigo, leaving the taste of Euro-dance in the mouth, albeit without a four on the floor beat.?! Here, the pop auteur is haunted by the late Prince, channelling Courtney Love and Lou Reed, anger and love. Recorded as ever in her own Lighthouse Studios and co-released with her imprint Dark Skies Association, the record is consistent in strategy and approach to past releases, yet on this one Nilsson pushes the limits of the scope of a pop song even further.?! Despite working with used keyboard sounds that evoke memories of a distorted past, the sound is distinctly contemporary.?!

The Travels represents a signpost in the continuing journey that is the songs of Berlin-based artist Molly Nilsson.?!  Starting out by hand-dubbing CDRs and forging a singular path in the global pop underground, Nilsson’s art has grown to the extent where hers is a precise songwriting devoid of unnecessary flourish.?! Her songs are perfect silhouettes of feelings everyone shares but that few can articulate with such heart-rending, icy pathos. Journeys offer change—the possibility of renewal—and on Tthis album, Nilsson’s resonant voice is found curling around a new sense of optimism and wide-eyed discovery that was only alluded to in her previous work.?! Songs like “Dear Life” might be spiked with a barbed sense of the dejected, but the presiding feeling is one of optimism, of being in love with life despite a shield of cynicism.?! “Dirty Fingers” brings a melancholy recognizable from previous work but with an incessant beat and ecstatic underpinning.?!

Limited to 800, handmade Lino-block stamped sleeves, Hand Numbered, with Download Card and Insert.?!   Molly Nilsson is in a mood: the mood for love, perhaps?! For an artist who has spent almost 10 years skirting the issue of love, almost addressing it, taking it out to dinner only to stand it up, “Single” almost lands a sucker love-punch to the listener’s heart.?! About Somebody seems to be about somebody, or maybe even somebody’s body, about desire too, perhaps.?! How else to interpret the line “Babe I want to party with you every night, and have a hard-on for the rest of my life?” But this is a Molly Nilsson song, and this is Empowering Content.?! Over a rousing, even anthemic, verse/chorus one-two, a soaring synth-string hook that rides the handclaps beautifully, we‘re soon left wondering whether our beloved narrator is really focusing on the “other” at all.?!

***BACK IN STOCK!!!  That we live in a world changed is beyond question.?! Since 2015’s Zenith, Berlin-based songwriter Molly Nilsson has surrendered to the world, traveling from Mexico to Glasgow, observing the changing socio-political landscape and imagining something better.?! For an artist who has so successfully created her own environment and gradually let in others, her eighth studio album Imaginations directly engages with her surroundings, engendering change and allowing love in.?! This album dreams big, recasting storming, stadium-sized pop into the internal language of the solo auteur.?! It’s not escapism, it’s a kaleidoscope and an alternative view, an agent of change. Nilsson’s vision is perhaps more forceful than the emotionally fragile moments of her previous album, exemplified on “Memory Foam,” a bright, driving pop song that belies themes of nostalgia and the past, reminding us that Nilsson alone can make one feel so welcome in loneliness.?!

***BACK IN STOCK!!!  The beginning moments of Molly Nilsson’s second album Follow The Light now seem like the start of a personal mythology that was to reach further than she could have imagined.?! Few contemporary artists have seeped into the underground pop psyche more thoroughly than the Stockholm-born songwriter.?! After releasing her debut These Things Take Time on hand-made CDrs, Nilsson’s follow up was a leap in scope and ambition.?! Of course, the personal takes on a tumultuous life in Berlin and the journeys to and from it inform the songs, as before, but a growing maturity in the songwriting is in evidence.?! From the diary pages of her first album to a growing stature as a songwriter in touch with the universal, this album contains many of Nilsson’s now firm fan-favourites. Follow The Light is the second installment of an ongoing Molly Nilsson reissue campaign and the first time the album has been available on vinyl..?!

***A sweeping, cinematic, emotional change is in the air.?! Molly Nilsson’s sixth studio album Zenith begins with clear, wide eyes open to Earth as we would love it to be but seldom is.?! Recorded in her home of Berlin and whilst touring and, as ever, conceived, produced, written and recorded in solitude, Zenith is Nilsson’s big statement and consequently her most affecting work to date.?! It sees her reveling in big arrangements, sweeping synth strings, bigger choruses and emotions.?! Like the rest of us she looks within and to endless sunsets in wonder and puzzlement.?!  That Molly Nilsson is a DIY cult figure is beyond question; she has always written directly and with wit straight down the line between the universal and the personal.?!
