Oh Land - 'Wish Bone'

Dave Sitek deems 'Wish Bone' worthy of being the first album released on his label.

Oh Land - 'Wish Bone'

Album Info

  • Release Date: September 24, 2013
  • Producer: Dave Sitek
  • Label: Federal Prism
6 / 10 Dave Sitek not only produced most of ‘Wish Bone’, he deemed it worthy of being the first album released on his new Federal Prism label. But when Brooklyn-based, Denmark-bred Nanna Øland Fabricius skips first into the cutesy world of unicorn-pop on the saccharine ‘Love A Man Dead’ and then talks about kittens and sunbeams on ‘3 Chances’, she’s as frustratingly twee as a hailstorm of cupcakes. Her second album’s adventures into electronica on the squelchy, sulky ‘Kill My Darling’ and the unsettling ‘Next Summer’ are more remarkable, as is the straight-up lo-fi funk of ‘Pyromaniac’, coming on like Robyn produced by Phoenix, while the starkly romantic folk balladry of ‘Love You Better’ brings a heart-swelling shift in mood.
