Lisa Isaksson: all instruments & vocals, artwork cover, written & recorded

"Lisa O Piu's (Lisa Isaksson) 7" vinyl, featuring sleeve art by Lisa herself, heralds the first release for Autumn Ferment Records. 
'Whisperers, Wavers, Hunters and Sailors' and 'Equatorial Changes' provide a fantastic introduction to the otherworldly 
sound that Lisa creates. Lyrically nostalgic and thought provoking, Lisa's hushed vocals combined with stirring harmonies 
and dreamlike melodies tenderly picked on acoustic guitar warrant comparisons to classic late sixties and early seventies 
recordings by the likes of Linda Perhacs, Joni Mitchell or Vashti Bunyan. Influences and comparisons aside, Lisa's well 
structured compositions bring their own unique qualities to the present day blend of alternative folk". 

"Taken from Lisa's home recorded lo-fi gem of a cdr, these two tracks capture the original rustic charm of her early sessions 
and the feel of a one take recording. Now preserved on the holiest of musical formats, these recordings will stand to represent 
the ascent of a truly talented musician who has a great future ahead of her".

Two real gems that dwell an homemade 7’’ vinyl. Particularly “Equatorial Changes” is a gentle, delicate and inspired stroke of musical genius Lisa Isaksson made everything. She played every instrument, composed the songs, was behind the console during these home sessions and at last drew the artwork. This is Craftmanship at the highest levels! Physically in the hands of a vinyl-freak this must be a valuable object (the record collector inside me is sniggering).
Tank you so much Graaf.
