Here's My Song, You Can Have It...I Don't Want It Anymore/Yours 4-Ever (2006)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Release Date: Mar 14, 2006; Lead Performance: Nicolai Dunger; Genre: Indie Rock

Mediocre singer-songwriters are so ubiquitous that when a good one shows up, it's like finding a crisp $100 bill on your doorstep. Nicolai Dunger is a Swede who has yet to make a significant impact in the States, but Here's My Song...'s lush chamber pop, soulful ballads, and vibrant rockers should change that. His songs evoke Van Morrison, Tim Buckley, and Springsteen without descending into pastiche. ''Someone new makes your world break in two,'' runs one lyric, and Dunger's the perfect newbie to bifurcate yours.
