Most songs become predictable by the time a listener reaches the midpoint of the song. No complaints from Indie Obsessive, since unpredictability is often achieved at the expense of attractiveness.

“St. Hanshaugen” by Simen Mitlid
"An emerging talent hailing from the lush woods of Os, Norway, Indie singer-songwriter Simen Mitlid crafts lush, Nordic Indie-Folk, a la contemporaries like Sufjan Stevens, Broken Social Scene and Patrick Watson. Since the stunning 2015 debut EP 'While We Wait,' Mitlid has been working on a full-length release co-produced with Canadian Producer, Tyler Neil Johnson (Bear Mountain, Young Liars, Austin Basham). Recorded in vivid locales including his hometown cabin, Oslo and Vancouver, the album (“Everything Is the Same“) captures the optimism and playful wonder of an artist in his prime."
