FÅGLAR I BUR 7"
A new duo from Gothenburg consisting of Felicia Lindgren (Milos) and Joakim Karlsson (Facit). In Fåglar I Bur the two relatives melt together their respective pasts, standing on a foundation built on Felicia's abrasive, industrial gloom and Joakim's minimal wavey sound work. Both sides pummels through shades of random Swedish new wave obscurities and homespun DIY electronics, though always being somewhat rooted in Gothenburg here and now. The A-sider "Platt" is a grey stomper of the finest kind, at times feeling like a degraded I Am Strange Now dub played on half-speed, whereas the flipside "Öppen Inbjudan" cruises slowly on rainy GBG streets in the middle of the night and combines the duo's different takes on melancholia in a wonderful way.
