Limited first pressing on purple vinyl and numbered. 500 copies.
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!”
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 outlandish artwork by Pelle Åhman with layout by Erik Danielsson (Watain). Deluxe ltd edition, numbered, purple coloured vinyl (first pressing limited 500 copies only!) with lyric & artwork booklet.
