Magnus Öström is finally back with the first album as a leader of his career.After more than two years of silence Magnus went back to his favorite studio, the Atlantis Studio in Stockholm. He joined up with his old friend, sound engineer Janne Hansson, to record some brand new compositions that he had written during the period following Esbjörn Svensson´s untimely passing and the dissolution of e.s.t.. For the recording he put together a new and sparkling band, which includes Andreas Hourdakis on guitars, Gustaf Karlöf on keyboards, and Thobias Gabrielson on bass. All of them great and unique players from the music scene in Stockholm. They first got together during the summer of 2010 to jam in Magnus´ own little studio and he immediately felt very comfortable playing with them, interpreting his compositions and complimenting his style...
