Alice Boman: Waiting

Alice BomanFrom Springsteen’s Nebraska cassette demo getting salvaged from his glove compartment for official release to Elliott Smith’s girlfriend passing along home Roman Candle recordings unintended for the public to Cavity Search Records, there’s just something special about a cut put to tape without pretense. Here’s a new track along those lines from Alice Boman, an emerging songwriter from Malmö, Sweden. “Waiting” is a poignant, fragile take embedded in tape hiss on Boman’s forthcoming debut, a set of songs “recorded in her home, just for herself to remember,” according to her label. “They where never meant to be heard by anyone, but now they’re soon out in the public.” Aptly titled Skisser, meaning “Sketches” in Swedish, the EP is due this month via Adrian Recordings (h/t Alan Williamson).
