Late Runner aka Asger Tarpgaard is a Danish singer / songwriter / multi-instrumentalist who makes beautiful indie folk / pop songs. After hearing his first single I Wear Shades at the beginning of this year, we were already looking forward to it, and the just released debut album Nothing’s Real Anymore does not disappoint. Although the opening track is titled Spring (in its video you can see how carefully the backing band takes care of a perfectly balanced sound, the pedal steel alone is worth it), this is ideal autumn music, for gazing gloomily out the window at the falling leaves, or for relaxing in an easy chair and dreams about the tale of Dragon Girl & Cactus Man. Watch the video for the standout title track below.
Nothing’s Real Anymore is out now digitally and on vinyl LP through Crunchy Frog Recordings.
