Hortlax Cobra: Lo-Fi Turned Autumn Hi-Fi

Hortlax Cobra: Lo-Fi Turned Autumn Hi-Fi

Hortlax Cobra is the side project of John Eriksson from the iconic indie-pop group Peter Bjorn & John. In addition to that credit, Eriksson is a member of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and a multi-instrumentalist who has worked with some of the brightest musicians around.

Hortlax Cobra’s latest effort, Lightworks, combines a lush electro-pop sound with some remarkable collaborators, like Ane Brun and Sibille Attar. In an exclusive TIDAL playlist, Eriksson shares some music to usher in the changing of the seasons.

K. Leimer, “Acquiescence”
Sounds like autumn in Northern Europe. I haven’t checked who K. Leimer is, but his homemade, rainy fantasy works pretty well.

Television Personalities, “Jennifer, Julie & Josephine”
Love the harmonies and the beautiful, cheap keyboard sounds on this track. And lovely lyrics, too.

Raymond Scott, “Portofino 1″
Just listen to these heartwarming blips and melodies. A musical painkiller.

Mammane Sani et son Orgue, “Tunan”
If you close your eyes you can almost feel the ambience in the room when this track was recorded. I could listen to this all day.

Dur-Dur Band, “Dooyo”
Let’s take it up a notch. Awesome, dry and dusty Somalian ’80s funk.

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, “Double Jeopardy”
Yes, hot music is best made on cheap keyboards!

Mark Douglas, “My Love Was Meant for You”
I get the feeling that this recording comes from a parallel world.

Daniel Johnston & Jad Fair, “Happy Talk”
Happy ending!
