Avis sur l’album

Testbild's latest effort finds the quartet aiming at the kind of spare, fragmented story-song portraits that groups like Bark Psychosis and notably Hood helped create and perfect — songs that effortlessly blend electronics and acoustics, while the understated sung-spoken lyrics capture states of bliss and collapse in equal measure. That said, Testbild is more immediately warm and straightforward than those forebears, though, and Imagine a House almost suggests sonic reconciliation more than anything else, a comfortable snuggling inside a familiar sweater rather than facing colder winds.

Working later with Mattias Nihlen, who like Herbertsson plays a slew of different instruments as well as sings, the band has created a number of all-over-the-place recordings that interpolate '60s and indie pop into...
