Solo Paraiso is Molly Nilsson's mini-album from 2014 recorded during a 2 month residency in Buenos Aires, Argentina. For it's 10th Anniversary, Night School and Dark Skies Association is making the most sought after long player in Molly Nilsson's catalogue available again on a new format with new artwork.Pop music rarely comes as honest and heartfelt as when delivered by Molly Nilsson. Having traveled around the world singing to the romantic and the doomed, Nilsson found herself in the Summer of 2014 in Buenos Aires. Inspired by the crumbling urban landscape and the heavy hearts that populate it, Sólo Paraíso is not only an ode to a specific time and space but a musical novella that meditates on youth, idealism and belonging. The soundtrack to a summer you thought you had when looking over bleached out old photo albums.Sólo Paraíso has the feel of a bridge between the more lo fi, first phase of Nilsson's career and the expanded sonic scope she has employed in the last decade. Recorded quickly, with instinct and feeling of paramount importance over rectitude or perfection, amongst the eight tracks of this mini LP are some of the biggest fan favourites of her career. As with all Molly Nilsson songs, each of these tracks is bursting with perfect moments. Opener Summer Cats sails over sun-kissed piano chords, chasing the sun eternally as it dips over the horizon, while show-stealer Blue Dollar draws parallels between the doomed Argentine economy and the failure of a love affair. It's the most feel-good, romantic peon to an economic downturn you'll ever hear. As Molly says "why is it so damn easy to break all the things that are so damn difficult to make?"Using cracked synths, shimmering piano, heat-stroked drum machines and above all her direct, from-the-heart vocal delivery, Nilsson's songs have never been so precise and on-point. For fellow doomed romantics, Sólo Paraíso is the perfect sound for an imperfect Summer.
