Below is a commentary by the label.

"Johannes Björk is a Gothenburg-based musician and literary critic. His music combines drones, pop melodies, and field recordings to create sophisticated sketches rather than fully formed songs. Originally , released in a 12-disc mini-edition for a live show in Stockholm earlier this year, is now being released as an expanded LP with two additional songs and two re-recorded ones. Siri Ahmed Featuring partial contributions from well-known and up-and-coming Swedish writers such as Backström, Johan Jönson and Johanna Sköldbäck Martell, the album shares some of the atmosphere of the emerging Gothenburg scene, but the songs The lighting speaks to a production that treats lo-fi elements as part of the soundscape. On Johannes Björk's debut solo album, pulsating drones form the perfect melodic backdrop, and field recordings and noise coexist with harmonic duets. He has carved out a landscape in which revelations that will save us from the impending tragedy will flow."

Infinite Expanse:

"Johannes Björk is a musician and literary critic based in Gothenburg. His music combines drones, pop melodies and field recordings to produce refined sketches rather than fully formed songs – resembling slowly refurnished interiors, rather than scenes with a clearly discernible subject. Originally released in a mini-edition of 12 copies for a show in Stockholm earlier on in the year, it is now presented in an expanded LP form with two tracks added in, and another two re-recorded. Accompanied in parts by renowned and emerging Swedish writers – such as Siri Ahmed Backström, Johan Jönson and Johanna Sköldbäck Martell – the music offers an electro-acoustic shelter, which houses both luminous and gloomy textures. While the album shares an atmosphere with the emerging years of the Gothenburg scene to some extent, the songwriting bears witness to a production that treats lo-fi elements as integrated parts of the soundscape, though not in a way that overpowers the recording. For his debut solo album, Johannes carves out a landscape where pulsating drones form the background for the perfect melody, where field recordings and noise co-exist with harmonical dyads, and the feeling of an assuasive epiphany flow out of an ever-looming tragedy."
