Lugnoro - (2012) Annorstädes

Remember bell-bottoms?. Hippies spreading peace and love?. No?. Well neither do I, since I've only been on Earth for 40 years, I was still shittin' yellow in the 70's, but the music from that time period can't be beat, or forgotten.

Lugnoro, (meaning peace and quiet, with a play on the Swedish language also meaning, calm anxiety) the first band signed, and their debut album entitled "Annorstädes" is the first release from the newly established Swedish music outlet, Ozium Records. The album has all that retro goodness of all those bands from the days of yore. Featuring tasteful keyboard and guitar noodling, that has as much in common with Deep Purple and Black Sabbath as it does Rush. Makes this band one to hear. Sung entirely in Swedish, which usually for me means the kiss of death for a band. Being an American, and like most Americans can't see past the end of our own noses, if its not sung in English it usually loses points right away. Not this time, the fact that I don't have a clue what they are singing only makes "Annorstädes" even more appealing for some reason. The fact that these guys are superb musicians speaks volumes.

"Annorstädes"  will be released to the world on March 26th, you can pre-order this very impressive album here. I know I will.              ~AdamW
