release the bats
street drinkers exhibit wild mournful introverted drone internal dialogue of messed up wonder. Skeppet by contrast is more upbeat prog chillout…the combination is an alternate take on bright summers and looong winters. Ltd 275 + insert RTB is proud to present a split LP with two of the most promising new acts currently stirring up the Swedish underground.

Street Drinkers is the solo moniker of Viktor Ottosson (Ättestupa). Since 2008, he's been laying down his gloomy patterns to some of the weirdest and most intruiging music we've heard in quite a while. Based around repetitive keyboards, tape loops and chanted vocals, Street Drinkers here delivers 4 tracks with a macabre and sombre mindset. Atmospheric and heavy on the melancholia with some underlying gothic tendencies. Regressive, spiteful and just wrong. Crude recordings with a fidelity not far away from the rotten fuss of mothership Ättestupa. Drums on Clouded Sky by Hannes Norrvide from Lust For Youth/Viking Jews. Previous releases out on Goaty, Utmarken, Kosmisk Väg and Sound Holes.

Skeppet from Malmö consists of Andreas Malm and Henrik Wallin (both members of long running project Fria Konstellationen, as well as heads in charge of the great Kosmisk Väg imprint). Their well-recieved debut tape from 2008 was followed by a split tape with Gothenburgs own Viking Jews in 2009. Influences are said to be acts like Cluster, Harmonia and La Düsseldorf, and here they are continuing the relaxed path taken on the split tape with an even more developed and refined sound. A long and mesmerizing trip into the sun, and a truly beautiful take on kraut/kosmische music. The perfect soundtrack for late summer nights. 2 tracks.

Total playtime of 40 minutes. Artwork by Dan Johansson (Street Drinkers cover/insert) and Henrik Wallin (Skeppet cover/insert). 275 copies.

Street Drinkers: 1. Burning Lie, 2. Secrets, 3. Victim Of Three, 4. Clouded Sky.
Skeppet: 1. Sargasso, 2. Inåt Landet.
