The latest reviews:

Ultima Thule - Vingslag

Dim Records - EP -

1094_ut_ving.jpgVingslag (or Wave of the Wings) is new EP which is out on CD or 12´´(black, blue and yellow) on Dim Records. It contains four songs Vingslag and Trolltider (Age of Trolls) on side A and Tröstlisedens Sång (Song of Solace) and Titta, Se Och Lär (Watch and Learn). On last two EP´s (Sverige, Sverige Fosterland and Så Länge Skutan Kan Gå) was on vocals original singer Bruno Hansen but on this EP Jan Thrönblom is back in line up. Whole EP has more than 13 minutes so it means more than 4 minutes average on one song. It is hard to pick the best songs but I really like Vinglsag and Trolltider (with nice refrain and typical beginning – dampened guitar, simple drum rhythm plus Jane´s vocal). At the end of Titta, se och lär is nice guitar solo. On the cover is raven flying above Scandinavia, on the back are band photos and photo from the gig. Inside is no paper with information but this is how Dim Records do it in case of Ultima Thule records. Nothing more or less then classic in style of the last albums.

The Sandals - F.T.W.

DIY - CD -

1093_sandalsftw.pngThird album from this Poznaň based band is out in DIY style and you may listen to thirteen songs (one is in English, the rest is in Polish). English one is cover from Marching Orders – Australian Made which was renamed to Fuckin´ Polish Made). There are some other covers - Clockwork Army from Black Marias, Glowa do Góry (from Polish pop rock band Banda i Wanda) and Nie Mamy Nic (which is Vi Får Ingenting from Agent Bulldogg). So we have four covers and nine original songs. Graphics of the cover was done by tattoo artist Abu (oldschool picture), inside are lyrics and thankslist plus photo of band members. Band plays in five and all members helping vocalist Kotek in singing. Two guitars are well heard just check the songs like Rozstanie (Farewell), rock one Czekam (Waiting) or title one F.T.W. (with great singalong). You surely find out that all songs are really melodic just check the last one Fyrtel, Bledy (Mistakes) or Jak tu źyć? (How to Live Here). Sandals played many times here and I have to say that they sound live as good as on CD. Nice piece.
