Might as well stick with the label National for the rest of the week's mp3 posts. Micke from Sweden, the solo alias of Micke Lohse from Atomic Swing, at his best conjures up the aged, world-weary sounds of American-era Johnny Cash. At his worst, well, let's just stick with what works... "Waiting for the end" even incorporates some apocalyptic end-times religious imagery too, though I can't say whether or not he's got true faith in his heart or if he's just putting on airs. Regardless, as long as it's delivered convincingly that's all that matters and Micke does a decent job of pulling it off. Also, even when the strings and backing choir come in, he keeps the arrangement sparse and raw and works it for all he's got. At least it sounds honest. Anyhow, he's still decades away from doing songs like "Hurt" will the gravity of a life fully lived behind him, but it's a start.
