Time: 7 PM
We celebrate Testbild!’s new record Stad (released by Kalligrammofon), with live music by Testbild! and Sonores.
Testbild!’s new album was recorded at Sonores Studios in Gothenburg, deep inside a hidden shelter where saxophones and mellotrons may howl and buzz as much as they want without the rest of the city hearing. Van Der Graaf Generator and Nürnberg 47 are lurking behind the facades, the flashing and crackling of stars falling down into a dark pond at night.
Sonores is a trio based on the west coast of Sweden as well as the west coast of the United States of America. They play deconstructed Swedish psych rock, based around tape collages and sample techniques rather than classic rock instrumentation. ‘Dance‘ is their first album in thirteen years, recorded in their own studio in Gothenburg. It straddles the previously unexplored line between oddly dense and dark foundations and light vocal pop sensibilities.
Thanks to Skånes konstförening for technical support
