This week's download comes from the artist Oh Land and her latest album Earth Sick.
Nanna Øland Fabricius, known to fans around the world as the artist Oh Land, came in to the music scene in 2008 under less than conventional circumstances. When 10 years of training and a budding career in ballet was abruptly ended by injury, a life in music began. At the age of 22, Fabricius wrote and produced her first album Fauna, which was released to much critical acclaim. Having recorded most of the album by herself in her bedroom, Fabricius discovered an early knack for production. The process that Fabricius found in creating Fauna was foreshadowing for what would come after. Earth Sick, Oh Land's fourth album, marks a return to the roots that launched her music career; writing, recording and producing everything herself at home, with the help of her closest friends, family and talents. Recorded primarily in her Brooklyn, New York apartment, Earth Sick is a hybrid of symphonic and electronic sounds, masterfully woven together. Layers of lush vocals and rich string arrangements combine for the next chapter in Oh Land's signature soundscape.
You have a week to grab Oh Land's song "Head Up High" from her album Earth Sick.
