Sir Was — Gotherburg’s Joel Wästberg — started out as a saxophonist listening to Charlie Parker and John Coltrane, and the freedom which Coltrane in particular embodied goes a long way to explaining the non-conformist styles of Wästerberg’s debut album. ‘Digging A Tunnel’ is an album that won't stay still, won't conform, and which certainly won’t sound like anything else out there right now. The record actually sounds as if it had released ideas, ambitions, melodies in years. Full of TripHop beats, Electronica loops, jazz arrangements, soul and folkmelodies.

Chillwave, like: Cairobi, Drugdealer, Tame Impala.
