double lp with cd. jeniferever are a brilliant swedish proposition. the uppsala four-piece - kristofer jnson, martin sandstrm, olle bilius and fredrik aspelin - have previously been compared to some truly otherworldly outfits, bands with the ability to paint a world around the listener. but every second of 'silesia' is tied to place and time, bound by reality and borne by experience. it's less about escape, more confronting the unexpected trials that send one's life into undulation. there's a crack and strut to 'the beat of our own blood,' the album's third track. 'goodbye to bright spotlights,' sings kristofer, taking the listener into the belly of the urban beast, through a city's trains and tunnels. 'deception pass' might be the band's heaviest song yet, drums and bass combining to kick up a turbulent maelstrom of menace. hearths threads elegant atmospherics like satellite trails across a starry sky, and the title-track's sentiment, while stemming from a single heart, is truly universal. leaves fall, ice builds, the sun breaks cover, flowers blossom. everything's part of a cycle, every aspect has its beauty. silesia is an album of similar changes and contrasts, of life and death, and just as fascinating as the forever-changing nature of what's outside your window.
