Nina Persson / A Camp / Colonia

A Camp, “Stronger Than Jesus”

I just picked up the new album from maybe moonlighting (or maybe ex-?) Cardigan, Nina Persson's other band, A Camp, which I like a lot better than The Cardigans. Seriously, I adore this album (Colonia), with its Aimee Mann feel and super-smart lyrics, as in the above song, where “don’t you know love can do you like a shotgun.” Simply gorgeous, and gorgeously dark. As also in the opening track, “The Crowning,” where she sings, “So let's raise our glasses to murderous asses like you / May you sleep soundly”
