Birgit Bidder sings from the heart and she has a voice that deserves to be heard. In Parking Lot Paradise, another of this talented Swedeâ€™s own compositions, she tells a sad story of frustrated love ( ahh!), but in such a pleasant way that the heartfelt lyrics are joyfully swaddled in a comforting meld of soulful, country-rock tuneage; far from being moody, this is a catchy and well uplifting bit of music. There are syrupy, swirling keyboards and guitars aplenty, with a crisp, reverby tom-tom adding tasteful punctuation to the sixties sounding mix. And wow, it sounds as if Duane Eddy, himself, played the licks on the bridge section – if so, thatâ€™s got to be a major coup! To cap that, the track tails off with a tenor sax solo over the chorus thatâ€™s as dirty as you could possibly wantâ€¦nice touch. All in all, a highly polished, mature sound from someone so young (and Swedish!)
This track is a taster from the forthcoming LP â€˜ The Life Homeâ€™ due out later this year on Kerstin Records.
Iâ€™d say this is one lady to keep your eye (and ear) on. And probably the best way to do that is to check out the stunning, target=”_blank”>film noir style Parking Lot Paradise video (which I understand was shot on location in Sweden by Birgit and crew with borrowed cameras).
Birgit Bidder is comingâ€¦..get ready.
