Alaska or Wisconsin? It's unclear which David Wenngren (Library Tapes) & Jonatan Nastesjo (Woodchucker) had in mind, but given the latter's richer Swedish links let's go with WI - especially as Gustav (or Gustaf) Unonious's Waukesha County seems to fit.
In any case, a diverting new piece sends these ears Below Juneau. Diaphanous, other-worldly, beyond genre, Something there once again underlines the range of Wenngren, who also works in his own name & as Murralin Lane & Le Lendemain, & whose The Meridians of Longitude & Parallels of Latitude with Christopher Bissonnette graced LMYE's 2011 Festive 50 + 50.
Below also hear the only other BJ piece extant - the stunning, hushed Feel Nothing.
Oh, & Wenngren's delicious recent collaboration with Kane Ikin (Solo Andata) for Simon Scott's Keshhhhhh, Strangers, must be heard too...
Important: LMYE only makes music available that artists/labels have chosen to share freely. Let us know if something here shouldn't be.
