“When I try to get a minutes rest there is always someone trying to do their best to exhaust me completely”

Hmmm…Perhaps a solo project was not the sharpest of ideas if a little rest is needed. T.S. Mr. Morén…We dig “Social Competence”, the first track to appear from Peter Morén's (of Peter, Bjorn, and John fame) upcoming record, The Last Tycoon. We’re rather happy he’s so willing to exhaust himself…and for such a cause at that. Sprightly guitar lines bounce around…sweet as spring really…Morén himself piling tightly packed lines of lyric somewhere over the top. Why sometimes the poor man even has trouble spitting it all out. It’s peppy, it’s simple…it’s apparently not done yet. Queue some hand claps, snappy sticks on the hi hat and snare, robust lines of piano, a rousing harmonica, and the second half of “Social Competence” sort of lays out the simpler start in favor of a rigorous mess of instrumentation.

The Last Tycoon is due out April 8th on Quarterstick Records. Morén currently has some spring dates scheduled. – David Pitz
