The Cardigans And Kenna Bring The Darkness For 'Bargain Spins'

3 December 2009 3:00 PM, PST | MTV Newsroom | See recent MTV Newsroom news »

We may be in a recession, but even when the economy is in the toilet, you still need to have great music. That's why we invented "Bargain Spins," a new feature that focuses on overlooked albums that also happen to be available in every used or bargain bin in every record store in the country (and if you don't have a record store in your town anymore, you can still find them discounted in most every digital music store or on sites like So enjoy some great records you might have missed.

James' Pick: The Cardigans, Gran Turismo (1998): It occurs to me now that, after doing three installments of "Bargain Spins," perhaps I am getting a tad bit predictable. It seems I tend to favor "disastrous" albums — those willfully-different, arty-for-art's-sake albatrosses that sink careers and alienate fans. You know, the kind that are usually followed by an »

A Camp: Colonia

8 May 2009 7:40 AM, PDT | | See recent PasteMagazine news »

The Cardigans’ Nina Persson singer is as sharp and sassy as ever

Few female artists can trill life into a cold breakup line like “Don’t give me platinum to weigh down my wrist / I’ve got injunctions, so cease and desist.” But sharp-witted, ex-Cardigans crooner Nina Persson is just such a gal, on the lopingly laconic “I Signed The Line.” And she spends this, her second solo outing as A Camp, delivering droll lyrical punches to the solar plexus against a conversely sunny Spectoresque backdrop (aided by her multi-insrumentalist husband Nathan Larson, among others). To complement her sky-blue singing voice, Persson has a cynical view of the world, exemplified in snarky song titles alone-“It’s Not Easy To Be Human,” “The Weed Had Got There First.” In a chiming “Stronger Than Jesus,” she chirps a humalong chorus of “Don’t you know love is stronger than Jesus? / Don »

27 April 2009 10:00 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

“A Camp is Nina Persson of The Cardigans,” read the sticker on A Camp’s 2001 debut, but the music, lyrics, and production on the follow-up, Colonia, are all credited to “A Camp.” Thinly veiled solo project or not, the reason to listen to Colonia is Persson’s smooth voice. She sings directly, without flash or pretension; her only indulgence is a mournful quaver, which she employs with restraint and taste. The overall effect is sincere believability, which is especially helpful when she’s explaining, say, that imaginary gods can’t save you. The album is suffused with defeat: Persson »

Persson: 'I hate being a solo artist'

27 January 2009 6:28 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Cardigans singer Nina Persson has said that she hates working as a solo artist. Persson, who released a self-titled record under the alias A Camp in 2001, claimed that it was too lonely working without a band.
