I have HITS IN THE CAR to thank for this one. Of course, it only makes sense that a Danish blog would be best able to alert the world to an up-and-coming Danish artist. In this case, that artist would be the Hobbit-monikered RASMUS FYNBO, who records under the far-more-dubious name MUSHI.
I'll let HITS give you the scoop:
"My current favorite album is the recent release by Danish one-man project Mushi. The album (released March 19) is called Unfairytales and has received some pretty good reviews in the Danish media. The music varies quite a lot throughout the 12 tracks on the album, and sounds like he's done his best to mix as many musical genres as possible. Whether you want Balkan rhythms, western themes, cabaret, country or the straight forward pop/rock song begging for airplay; it's all there and it never gets boring. However the real strength of the album is that he never gets carried away (and turns the album into an experimental playground), but instead remembers that the great and catchy tune must always be present."
Well said, sir. And a great find.
Mushi's back-catalogue is available for free download [HERE]. Happy hunting.
