Hemstad CD on Catbird Records

July 20, 2009 at 3:24 pm

In a recent mailing from Catbird Records it was announced that somehow (with no elaboration on particulars) copies of Hemstad’s s/t album are once more available. The album, the third album in Catbird’s now far larger catalog, has long been “out of print” and its first release in 2007 (or thereabouts) sold out rather quickly as I recall. Hemstad’s is a Swedish instrumental pop band, reminiscent in many ways of Robert Schneider’s side project Marbles (also a very salutary band), with some lovely drone, a better use of horns then I’m used to, and a healthy electronic component to their composition. Great stuff. Here’s an mp3 from the album’s page on Catbird:

Hemstad – Fyllekärring

This is a popular album that a slew of people regret missing out on when copies were available, so I recommend getting one as quickly as you can – what’s more, they’re only $6. Here’s that link again.
