Maggie Björklund: Coming Home Maggie Björklund: Coming Home (Bloodshot, 3/22/11)

Though she hails from Scandinavia, Maggie Björklund has created a record rich with folk instrumentation of the American Southwest. The Danish pedal-steel maven just released her debut album, Coming Home, on Bloodshot Records.

In the video for “Anchor Song” above, Björklund is joined by an all-star cast: John Convertino of Calexico, Rachel Flotard of Visqueen, Rusty Willoughby, Johnny Sangster, Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees, and cellist Barbara Hunter.

This exclusive video marks the start of Bloodshot’s “Maggie Björklund Video-Roll Contest Week.” Anyone who “Likes,” comments on, or re-posts the video is eligible to win a copy of Björklund’s new album.

The second video of the five that are set to be released, “Vildspor,” premieres tomorrow on Magnet. Be sure to head over there to find out where the third video will premiere and see how far this music-video rabbit hole actually goes.
