Svart Records has re-issued some of the very finest classic Finnish Post-punk albums such as Musta paraati, Kola kestää and Nolla nolla nolla, alongside being known for discovering modern underground classics such as Beastmilk. Now we turn our ears towards a new wave of sound from Sweden, to PÅGÅ and their wildly original new album The Evil Year.
PÅGÅ describe The Evil Year in their own words:
“Out of a great lust to encounter the unknown and to explore the boundless in us this record/work came about, in the hands of The High Spirit Rebel. We wish this may serve as great entertainment, a bad enemy, an instrument and a match.
Enter! Step in!
Enjoy The Evil Year!
Outlandish pop and psychedelic noir rock from Sweden’s Åhman brothers, Pelle and Gottfrid (ex vocalist and bassist from In Solitude). Hand-picked by Mat Kvohst McNerney (Hexvessel, Beastmilk, Grave Pleasures) for his Secret Trees imprint via Svart.
Kvohst describes PÅGÅ as
“Post-Punk freakery, like Birthday Party era Cave, avant-garde Bowie and the darkness of Coil with unique artistic flair that’s in a world of its own.”
The Evil Year features beautifully far-out artwork by Pelle Åhman on the cover and throughout the inlay. Deluxe ltd edition, numbered, purple coloured gatefold vinyl (first pressing limited 500 copies only!) with lyric & artwork booklet, Luxury A5 digipak CD and digital release via all digital platforms.
The Evil Year begins on the 27th of November 2020! Pre-order now: https://svartrecords.com/artist/paga/
