I’ve been waiting since ’04 for Kings of Convenience to release a new album (and since ’06 for a proper Math and Physics Club follow-up), but apparently Dylan Mondegreen decided to take matters into his own hands last year.
While I Walk You Home is a lively parade of major seventh chords and whispered harmonies sung with an aching Norwegian accent; argyle in the wind on an autumn afternoon. It’s painfully great, but perhaps the most heartbreaking thing about it is it took a Google Reader suggestion to point me in its direction.
Let’s all buy this record and hug it all the way to our favorite coffeehouses, yeah?
