We stumbled onto Norwegian siren, Mr Little Jeans (aka Monica Birkenes) courtesy of NPR and it took one track “Good Mistakes” to fall in love with her infectious and airy voice. Luckily, on this day, her full length album Pocketknife (iTunes) was released and we bought the whole shebang after hearing that one track.
Pocketknife is twelve tracks of pure gold. Springtime captured on wax. Each track is placed perfectly and Monica’s voice is the essence of a dandelion blowing in the wind.
We are head over heels with the album. Our favorite track is a two way tie between “Runaway” and “Heaven Sent”.
Check out the single “Good Mistakes” that hooked us and watch the video here.
