In November 2012, we released “Goodbye,” a Mini-LP from one of our favorite Swedish bands, SPEEDMARKET AVENUE, where we could hear Isak Klasson bare his soul after a break-up, along the same lines as FLEETWOOD MAC’s “Rumours”, Frank Sinatra’s “Watertown”, TREMBLING BLUE STARS’ “Her Handwriting”, and Bob Dylan’s “Blood On The Tracks”, but with the clear mark of the band’s identity. Now we’re taking “How I Miss You” from that same Mini-LP and we’re releasing a digital single that keeps the melancholic and sad feeling, stilly influenced by the same creative process, though the title track stands out for its marvelous chorus and the beauty of the guitar arrangements.

Once again, the band makes it clear that their compositional skills are all-terrain, and they aren’t afraid to try any format or style. The two previously-unreleased songs from this single highlight the most devastating and painful part of the process of separation that gave way to this significant stage in the group’s successful career. “A Week Is A Year” is a slow, delicate song, which reflects how painfully slow the passing of time can be when emotions are running high. It’s an evocative song, with pure arrangements and a bittersweet aftertaste. On the other hand, “Saturday I’ll Listen” is one of those heartbreaking songs that can only be written from some the darkest place inside you, and that leaves a permanent mark on the more sensitive souls. There are a few small sparks of light in the disarming guitars, and the song’s lyrics hint at the beginning of a new stage, despite being deeply submerged in a painful process that hasn’t finished just yet.

We are still devoted fans of Isak Klasson and his band, who are capable of making us move our hips or making us cry, with the same inspiration and brilliance, leaving us at their mercy, cradled by their great songs.

Track Name: How I Miss You
I needed time and time
Waiting and awaiting
I told you I wouldn't go solo
Defenses were so low

I needed time to see
Thought you promised that you'd wait for me
Trust me I wouldn’t change my mind
I had left my second thoughts behind

You invaded new territory
Could've approached peacefully
Trust me I'd never leave your side
Couldn't find a better place to hide
Trust me I'd never leave your side
Couldn't find a better place to hide

I needed time and time
Waiting and awaiting
I told you I wouldn't go
So low defenses were

Slow down restless mind
Remember one dream at a time
Was just looking for a patch of sun
Now I miss you every day you're gone

Was just looking for a patch of sun
Now I miss you every day you're gone
Was just looking for a patch of sun
How I miss you every day you're gone
How I miss you every day you're gone
How I miss you every day you're gone

You're gone
How I miss you
Track Name: A Week Is A Year
Every love
What a love
What a play
Every day

Every life
What a sight
What a fight
Every night

A week is a year
Was
Long ago
Yes, I should have saved a photo

Every name
What a name
What a shame
Every claim

Every try
What a cry
What a blast
Every past

A week is a year
Was
Long ago
Yes, I should have saved a photo
Track Name: Saturday I'll Listen
I'm sad to say
I've got to work tonight
Important things you see
Though I'd love to talk

I want to know
What happened here
But I'm too tired now
You know I love you

Tell me all
But just not now
It's this disturbing sound
Must have some quiet time

I'm sorry love
But saturday I'll listen

I'll listen with interest, I'll say
"Is it true? Can't believe it! That's great!"
But tonight I have nothing to say
But please stay

You say
"Later does not always come"
I know but I can't control time
I have tried, I have tried, I have tried

You know I'm really different now
You know my love, I am
