From Karl Buhre of Alouatta's upcoming debut solo EP "Fieldwork".
has made the much-anticipated Missbrukarna LP available for preorder: http://www.skrammelrecords.se/
Grab it now and get a free 7" from Alouatta or The Nature, both equally solid bands.
Atom Notes: Finns doing that PacNW Wipers thing with a healthy dose of angular guitar-rock ala Hot Snakes. Maybe not quite as hot as Alouatta, but not too shabby either. Not at all. New album out on soon.
Sorry I've been MIA on the editorial front, but it's probably not gonna change much for the foreseeable future either. While Europe heads into summer slowdown/festival mode, I'm getting more work piled on me than there are hours in the day. However, I do have a list next to me on my desk of artists I'm long overdue to cover and I really am gonna try my best to get through them one way or another in the not-so-distant future. First up, here's a little something from Alouatta off their brand new 10" "DIY EP" (out now via ) where they out-Wipers the Pacific Northwest. No kidding, for all the bands local to me that attempt to emulate said regional sound, Alouatta has em beat in every which way. Seriously, if someone told me these dudes were from Portland, I'd believe them. And yeah, that's an endorsement.
Alouatta - The comeback
Swedish punk label (Slöa Knivar, Krig i Hudik, Brainbombs, etc.) has started a new offshoot called in order to release what they say is "music that is perhaps more awkvard, worse, better, more lean, more pop, more dance than what we havce been doing so far at Skrammel." First up, a new 10" EP from rockers Alouatta called "DIY" which will be out on May 6. Read more and check out a pre-mastered sample tune: http://skrammelrecords.se/sodertorn/
Alouatta has started recording their debut full-length and will be doing basic tracks with Andre Linder (Östermalm) before sending it off to Fredrik Björk (Twopointeight) for overdubs.
