about

Embrace the holy chivalric sound of Sir PREYBIRD - this brand new album is to be released June 29th 2012 both as a digital edition and an extended CD Edition, reaching the 60 minute mark with as much as 20 tracks.

'Sir PREYBIRD' is a new full-length LP from Sweden-based electronica producer PREYBIRD – the second part of an epic trilogy filled with mystery – to be released by the end of September 2012. This album is a natural sequel to 'St. Preybird' (2011), which has received several positive reviews:

***************************
”Creates electronic landscapes stronlgy influenced by jazz. Exciting one-man project.” (The Jazz Country, Swedish Radio P2)

”Do you like new jazz? Electronica? Musik that rotates your consciousness? Then you should listen to Preybird and his magical sound brew of jazz and ambient electronica. Be prepared for astaggering sound journey with programmed spontaneity” (HiFi & Music, Sweden)

”Holy cool of the day!” (Soundcloud Twitter)

”Fiery cosmic funk bangers! I'm amped.” (Prince Po, Organized Konfusion)

”This modern take on the jazz idiom makes a nice change from punching kick drums and gnarly synths. What is highly succesful is the natural way in which free jazz and the DAW work together.” (Computer Music Magazine )
*************************************************

On this one-hour long concept album (which preferably deserves a listen in one go) PREYBIRD paints with lush colors. He flirts with several musical paradigms from the past century as well as movements in art, which reflects a timeless mind-set towards production that permeates his entire work: from the first to the last note of the recording and the shaping of the cover art with pre-Raphaelitic tendencies and the artist Shara's mythological mask creations. Subjects such as philosophy, metaphysics and quantum physics are allowed to swim under the surface and to give the music a wider spectrum.

Futurum preteriri – ”the future of the past” has been the leading concept forming the sound. Imagine being able to capture the sound of the with the perspective of the future! Or to be able to see the future through the spectacles of the past …
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unexpected turns, sneaky transmutations – metamophoses – is what defines 'Sir PREYBIRD' most clearly. A steady fluctuation between neighboring genres weaves an exhilarating excitment that just keeps going on. The music flows effortlessly from blues rock to jazz, electronica, over to hip hop, funk, soul and metal during the journey, which offers plenty guest appearances and creative collaborations. Established artists are paired with raw talent:

PRINCE PO – Legendary MC from Queens known from Organized Konfusion
PONTUS RUBIN – Free-thinking och jazz guitaristwho's studied with the best in the game
AZRAEL – New Jersey baserad underground rapper and word wizard
OSCH – Elektronic sound smith based in Norrköping, Sweden
LILERIK – Sweden's new rap pride

about

PREYBIRD Sweden

Per Jonsson's music incorporates an intangible essence of flow. In his case the principle of flow manifests itself in a refusal to be deadlocked in templates, an almost obsessive idea of avoiding the static, expressed in an irrepressible will to discover and explore. The music is, paradoxically enough, seen to the swarm of allusions and unabashed borrowings, a "style without style". ... more
