Marie Dahlstrøm‘s album Like Sand is available on vinyl and marks her first release in this timeless format.
The tactile joy of an LP is something many are starting to re-discover or discover. Major recording artists now regard an LP release as an essential, and unsurprisingly, 2020 saw the UK reporting the largest increase in global vinyl sales since the ’90s.
As much as we can rave about LPs’ never-ending appeal over digital, they are still costly for independent artists to produce. The ongoing pandemic raises additional challenges for marketing and distribution without the essential face-to-face after-show sales. Those moments between a fan and an artist are unique connections that live in the memory forever, and it’s yet another aspect where digital music cannot compare. Purchasing artists merchandise of any kind is a direct and rewarding show of support.
UK-based Danish artist Marie Dahlstrøm is regarded as one of Scandinavian soul music’s original queens and has produced exceptional seductive soul music for over a decade. And her latest high-rated album Like Sand is more than worthy of treasuring in a vinyl format.
Adjusted to fit LPs specific time constraints, the album is constrained to 12 tracks instead of 14. Still, it includes soulful soothing tracks such as; Through Your Eyes (feat. Jeremy Passion), Like Sand (feat. Beau Diako), and I Want You (feat. Elijah Fox).
The album is the definitive example of Marie’s dreamy signature sound. Your first steps into Scandinavian soul music collecting starts here.
