Hemstad: Never forget

Swedish wordless indiepop act Hemstad may be more or less inactive these days, but they are not completely forgotten -- head to their myspace to check a few new/old tracks just posted online:

Hemstad back in print

Catbird Records has informed me that the long out-of-print self-titled album from Swedish act Hemstad is once again available again now that they've recovered a stack of unused CD inserts from the print warehouse and are re-pressing and hand-assembling 'em with super-affordable CDRs. Check it:
They also tell me there's a small possibility that the band's shelved follow-up album might eventually see the light of day, but nothing's confirmed yet on that front. Wait and see!

Detektivbyrån will release the album "E18" in Japan via P-Vine Records. Said album is a collection of everything the band has recorded so far including the brilliant "Hemvägen" EP plus "Lyckans undulat", the song from the split 7" w/Hemstad and one bonus track. Official release date is May 2 and cover art can be viewed here:

Catbirdseat has posted Hemstad's out-of-print self-titled 2006 EP up for streaming at Muxtape. Read more about it here:
Does this mean I should post my last remaining copy up for sale on eBay?

James Ausfahrt (Agent Simple, Hemstad) has a new album out on Fridlyst called "Party for the arty people/arty for the party people". Listen to samples:
