Kent – Hjärta & Smärta EP

I’m listening to the new Kent EP, The Hjärta & Smärta EP. Because I preordered the disc, I got a free music download 2 days early (by the way, DRM sucks!). The 5 tracks are sheer bliss. It’s fantastic. It’s less over-produced than their latest and it’s more like their “Isola” days. It’s damn, damn nice. “Flen / Paris” is my current favourite.

    Hehehe, good one.

    That actually means “the preorder” 😀

    What did you think it meant?

    Who knows? You people have windmills. There’s no telling what else you’re in to.

  3. Chris says:

    So, duh, of course, the press release is written in your strange gibberish language. 🙂

    This, however, appears to be some sort of mass sexual maneuver.

    förhandsbokning

    “You people have windmills.”

    Ehm that the Dutch (historically anyway)…

    “f?rhandsbokningen”

    Ha! That actually reads like the Dutch words “voorhand boeking”, or

    the frase “boeking op voorhand”. However in Dutch you’d use “reserveren” which means “to reserve” (from French!).

    Anyway enough language info…Kent! Still only have that one song, but it’s great 🙂

    Hehe, indeed.

    Fantastic lyric from song 2:

    Man blir tr?tt av ditt j?vla gn?ll

    It’s the chorus, sung by what sounds like all the girls from a kindergarten. Bloody fantastic. This is the translation:

    One gets tired by your constant nagging

    So pristine and innocent a chorus of children. Hilarious!

    I can’t wait for the day when I’m listening to Kent in a room with people that understand the language and I’m just kinda mumbly-humming and everyone else is having a proper emotional reaction.

    Very nice, thanks for posting the link.

    By the way, I know you’re a fellow Kent fan; don’t you agree that this EP is surprisingly good? What are your favourite tracks?

  9. Since I like slower songs and the b-side tracks best this EP i gold 🙂 It’s hard to pick out a favorite track but Ansgar & Evelyne and Dom som f?rsvann are a little better than the rest if I have to pick.

    By the way all the lyrics to the Hj?rta and sm?rta EP are translated to english now 🙂

  10. Joen says:

    Ansgar & Evelyne is a fantastic track, so is Dom som F?rsvann… But you have to admit that Flen / Paris has some great beats, right ?

    Oh, and by the way, I completely agree on the b-side track thing. My favourite kent song ever (a highscore that’ll be up for review with this EP), has so far been “Utan Dina Andetag”, with “L?ngtan Skala 3:1” as a close second.

    Thanks for the english lyric link. A lot of people who find this site are looking for exactly that.

    Kent are so damned good! Love them. And The Hj?rta & Sm?rta EP is as great as everything else ever done by Kent (and by the brains of it all; Jocke Berg). Love Ansgar och Evelyne, Vi mot v?rlden, Flen/Paris.

    Fy fan vad bra! Jocke du ?r verkligen ett geni.

    Agreed 🙂

    Kent is the best band ever in my opinion. I’m norwegian so I pretty much understand all their lyrics, but there are a few words like: M?lbrotsr?st, k?da, k?rar, moln etc. wich do not resemble any norwegian words or can be deciffered by braeking down the word (except m?lbrotsr?st wich I think means voice-change voice)

    Could anyone please transelate these for me?

  14. Naja says:

    well… m?lbrottsr?st just means that his voice is breaking, voice mutation you know…

    k?da is resin or pitch

    with k?rar he means that it gives him the creeps/willies

    and moln is of course clouds

    hope that it helped-
