Tänder Ett Ljus

To die for, lackadaisical (is there any other kind?) jangle-punk minimalizm from subterranean Rotten-burg, recommended for any who enjoyed the Itchy Bugger LP, or who thinks they might dig a “slow-motion countryside Buzzcocks” (aye). JJ Ulius is one half of brill garage combo Skiftande Enheter and this is his solo debut, two songs about love, alienation, and “kicking it to the fucks”. There’s an obvious debt to quintessential Nun/Xpressway NZ tackle, but also a bit of Svenska Pop Fabriken / Klippan power-pop rush (albeit tranquillised til dribbling) too, but really, with its deft marriage of faux-naive folk melodies and coarse, ultra-repetitive guitar slash, it occupies its own beguilingly burnt-out oooooh-niverse. Exemplary modern DIY...small 'n unassuming, but once heard, impossible to live without! Two tracks on 7", edition of 200 with hand-made sleeves.
