<< SHORT RUN REPRESS! HAND-STAMPED AND IN BLACK PAPER SLEEVE >>

Initially only to be heard via handfuls of CDr’s circulating in around their friend circles in 1990 Sweden – now somehow making it’s way out into the open world for us, and we are thankful for it – the self titled collection of works from Civilistjävel!

Served in an edition of 150, with handmade sleeves, these juxtaposed oddities and vast dark ambient moods, recorded mainly on the Juno60 & KorgMS20 synthesizers, are now out here in all their humble vastness, spread across 7 tracks / 35mins for eager ears –

It’s definitely a deeply private sounding LP, but if we were to make comparisons, we’d say it’s sounding at times subtly euphoric and sweetly synthesised like that amazing Tito – Quetzalcoatl LP from 70’s Mexico, but perhaps less ‘Ayahuasca’ and more stoned, a little colder and more sparsely melancholy…

Or perhaps geographically a little closer at least, is the comparison with early Chi Factory Material, although Civilistjävel! sounds extra brukk and also a tinge darker in comparison, and we like that…
Comparing it to that Tito LP and early Chi Factory material is already very high praise coming from here… those are real favourites in our worlds, and we feel this one could join their ranks up there quite easily actually.
This self titled LP stretches out across 7 tracks, all untitled, all speaking for themselves in their minimalist, isolationist beauty…

Can’t recommend this highly enough.
