A Camp 

Colonia (Nettwerk)

There's no getting around the voice. Nina Persson makes her mark on A Camp and the trio's second album, Colonia, which follows up the first and self-titled release from 2001---a welcome return! The Swedish Persson's inflections and intonations continue to give her voice that special character: a sophisticated and elegant sheen or surface shrouding the wasted and desperate core. With Niclas Frisk on guitar and keyboards, Nathan Larson on bass, joined by various guests, including James Iha, the music hangs back, moody and understated; the perfect foundation for Persson's performances, especially "Bear on the Beach," "My America" and "It's Not Easy to Be Human."
