“Finally collated into one place! All the tracks from the four EPs Dystopian Futures have frantically unleashed on the world over the past two years, plus a new exclusive cover song to boot. Fear inducing news is everywhere in 2019 and these lads want to confront that head on with what little hope they have left in their hearts – the risen One.”
“I’m very very excited to release A Sudden Warmness, the newest single from my upcoming second album Behind. This is one of my own favorite songs, and it was the first one to be completed after a long period when I couldn’t write anything at all.
Despite the claim that we’ll beat time, it must be said that the sea widens and widens and there’s no bridge or a cliff to cling to. But from time time we’ll be there, wave each other and smile. You won’t be forgotten.
It may be hopeless but it’s the most important thing in the world.
A sudden warmness, that’s the most important things in the world. ”
“Formed in Malmö, Sweden by Martin Månsson Sjöstrand (vocals and guitar), Emil Engblom (bass) and Carolina Carlbom (drums and vocals), Dog, Paper, Submarine’s third Small Bear release may be their catchiest and most immediate yet. Recalling the sound of indie-rock’s golden era, the band have been favourably compared to the likes of Guided By Voices, Pavement and Sebadoh, whilst retaining a recognisable sonic identity of their own. Packing 8 songs into 20 minutes, Trouble On Earth veers from propulsive, fuzzed-up rock to janglier, sometimes more downbeat fare, making unexpected detours but always packed with inviting melodies. Existing fans of the band (and frontman Martin’s lo-fi side project This Heel) will not be disappointed, as everything that has made previous releases great is present here, with enough fresh twists and turns to make this record a vital addition to their catalogue.”
“Formed by Aybike Çelik Özbey (Vocals) and Tolga Özbey (Guitar/Bass) in Istanbul, Turkey and joined by Johnny the Tramp (Drums), the band describe their music as No-Wave/Garage/Post-Punk, recorded and produced with a do-it-yourself attitude. Released just in time to soundtrack the return of spring, the EP will be perfect for listening to as the weather improves, or for taking your mind off the rain if the sun is reluctant to return! Five tracks of upbeat and melodic (not to mention sometimes downright strange) indie-rock akin to the likes of The Raveonettes (but with more animal noises!), give ‘Sonic Rabbit Hole’ a chance and we think you might just find yourself with a new favourite record, and band.”
“The first band’s full-length album was compiled from the original songs captured between 2009 and 2012. It depicts the development of their distinctive sound and the starting point. The title Spirit Kit shows the idea behind the recording: each song itself is a key to a particular spiritual mood. The soundscape was designed in a very spontaneous and natural way. Nobody planned to release this record, and yet it became the organic 8 track statement that had been gathered from a vast band’s catalogue of singles, outtakes and demos. Serious changes and re-recordings were excluded on purpose to deliver the purest feel and tension behind the music. Remastered by the wizard from Binomial Records. The beauty of layering and reserved power reveals itself in an unexpected way through repeated listening.”
