2012 album from the Swedish born, New Orleans based soul singer, a lush, joyful and sometimes melancholy ode to the city she has called "home" for nearly 20 years. Street Parade reflects a dreamy Nordic pop sensibility firmly rooted and influenced by the warm Gospel and Soul sounds that drew the artist to New Orleans in the first place. The title track, "Street Parade" opens the record with resounding vocals rising over a regimental drum-line, testifying to the catharsis and impermanence of the carnival. Theresa's voice plays from a tongue-in-cheek 60s standard to a subtle snarl on the nocturnal brass breakdown of "Fiya's Gone." "What Comes Next" opens with a bright horn melody and mighty drum cadence leading into a powerful chorus on which Theresa is joined by Peter Moren of Peter Bjorn and John.
