Laike "Långt från stadslivets dån"

Laike is a one man project consisting of Swedish artist Christofer Ståhle who has played in several different bands for many years. His solo debut full-length "Långt från stadslivets dån" is available now on British label Les Cousins which has several reissues of Davy Graham's back catalog, and its bandcamp.

released February 27th, 2012

"Långt från stadslivets dån" (Far away from the noice of the city) was mostly recorded on the country side outside the town Lund where Christofer lives. The sources of inspiration are many but during the last years Christofer has been very much into British folk bands from the seventies like Steeleye Span, Fairport Convention and Pentangle. These type of songs have been combined with more rytmically driven songs. 2 years ago Christofer lived in Shanghai for 6 months and the improvisations you can here between some of the songs of the album were recorded in an oil cisterno of a Shanghai suburb. Right now Christofer is working on a new album.
