Dan Lissvik, “N”

on .

In 2014, multi-faceted musician Dan Snaith put out Caribou’s Our Love, an album in part inspired by the arrival of his daughter. This year, another Dan has come along to expand the potential of what “dad rock” can be. Swedish producer and new father Dan Lissvik, previously of the duo Studio with Rasmus Hägg, named his new album Midnight after the only time of day he could set aside to record it. The album’s first single, “N” (yes, the eight instrumentals spell out the record’s title), is reclined but not at all tired, shifting but uncluttered, open-ended yet clear-eyed.
