Do you remember Jeniferever? The Swedish band is one of our favorite, here at radioSpin (and there at S.Box some years ago): Olle Bilius plays bass for the Uppsala-based combo and now he’s ready to share with us his first solo tracks: a mini EP under the name of Calisota. Everything is written, recorded and produced by Olle himself but the songs features guest appearences from Ida Peterson Hallmén (vocals, piano), Rikard Linder (drums, vocals, percussion), Mattias Jonsson (acoustic guitar) and Ellinor Peterson Hallmén (clarinet). Obviously the EP feels the influence of Jeniferever sound, but that can’t be seen as a fault: Olle writes and plays his solo stuff in a very personal way and gives to Jeniferever‘s atmospheres a new softness.

Immediately and obviously bolder than their previous full-lengths, 2006′s Choose a Bright Morning and 2009′s Spring Tides, Silesia is a glorious coalescence of open space and memorable melodies: there’s an intrinsically uplifting air to the songs on this album and a slightly more upbeat and anthemic quality that sets it apart from the band’s earlier work, straying in to the post-pop (or, if you are fanatic about neologisms, call it pop-gaze) genre without getting lost. Silesia surprises by taking a transient, positive stance on life rather than wallowing in melancholia: this is still Jeniferever (track lengths still peak at a healthy nine mins), but it’s older, wiser and more accessible.
