Hell on wheels at Pitchfork + Tangents!

Hell on wheels album "The Odd church" was reviewed yesterday at Pitchfork. Very nice one! Says things like: "The Odd Church is full of great blasts of manic guitar and manic-er melodies, played with breakneck abandon by a group with the unlikely talent for referencing a range of influences-- the Pixies, the Ramones, Phil Spector, even Belle & Sebastian here and there-- while sounding completely confident and vital."
Read it!

Over at Tangents some other fine words showed up some time ago, written by Alistair Fitchett. He really liked Montt Mardié and some other of our acts. Favourite passage: "This is the sound of a modernist glamour, of a splendidly imagineered futurepast that drips with never ironic iconic reference."
Read that too!

Kalle J Mixtape!

Download: Kalle J mixtape!

It's circa 30 minutes of that unavoidable bending of tunes Kalle just can't stop from doing! It's fantastic. You. Just. Need. It. Can you feel it? Can you feel your feet start moving already?
This time around Kalle J has mixed some of his own tracks with some cuts and outtakes from here and there. Somewhere in there you might even hear a cover.
For the next Hybris! Monthly night we can reveal that Kalle J himself togheter with TIAC-Fredrik will do a special kind of show.
But until then: let your feet do the talking!

The Kid Interview on It's a trap!

Recently a nice interview with The Kid was posted at It's a trap, the thourough site dedicated to nordic music.

"Nowdays, even the indie bands are afraid to do statements and take avant-garde steps. That's not good because music will always be a weapon against those who have the power and misuse it. But perhaps they don't want to say anything. In the end, almost every Swedish indie band are brats and they think Palestine is a brand name for a scarf."

Hear! Hear!

Read it!

The video from The Kids latest single at Hybris, "Portion control":

Here is some nice and true words about The Kids debut album La Société nouvelle:

"After a couple years of dapper lads, dressed in black, backing a depressed crooner/croaker, it's incredibly refreshing to hear Sweden's The Kid open up with bursts of drum-programming and multi-layered keyboards and synths to compliment the visceral guitar stabs and taunt, ropey bass of post-punk."
- Aaron Shaul, Ink 19

And if you can read swedish:
