Dog, Paper, Submarine : TROUBLE ON EARTH [none]

“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.”

Dog, paper, submarine : Signal From Kepler​-​22b [Small Bear Records]

“The follow-up to last year’s eponymous EP, Signal From Kepler 22b comes hot on the heels of two solo releases from DPS frontman Martin Månsson Sjöstrand under the ‘This Heel’ banner earlier in 2015. Completed by bassist Emil and drummer Carro, Dog, Paper, Submarine deal in fuzzy, lo-fi, melodic indie-rock of the sort that journalists once liked to refer to as ‘skewed-pop’, comparable to the likes of Guided By Voices, Pavement, Lilys and Elephant 6-ers like Neutral Milk Hotel but with an identity all their own. ‘Signal From Kepler 22b’ retains the charm, energy and joy that made last year’s self-titled Small Bear debut one of 2014’s great records for those that heard it, whilst in places veering off into spikier, more angular and discordant post-punk territory. Pair this with the recently-released ‘This Heel II’ EP and we promise you’ve got a perfect soundtrack to the summer!”

Melinda Ligeti : Belonging [AT050]

“Disillusion, solitude, reminiscence, believing, traveling, loving, belonging.
Belonging to somebody, to yourself, to nature, dreams, to the unknown,
to something, to anything, to no one and nothing.
Belonging to the thought of not belonging. Either way – we all belong.
Melinda Ligeti”

“Evert L. Pipkin is a Man or Astro-man? cover.

The album cover is a picture of my dad at work in the 60’s. The songs are not about him but Cold Outside is one of his favorite tunes.”
