“Vowel After a Pause”

Ohayo was formed by Andreas Söderström (Ass), Johan Berthling (Tape), and Per Eklund during a tour as backing band for El Perro del Mar, a.k.a. Sarah Assbring. Their new album, The State We Are In, is due May 10 on Häpna. Maybe now they can have El Perro del Mar back them up on tour?

“Lion Of Judah”

Dylan Ettinger, who released this slice of brilliance last year, is back! Actually, he was already ‘back’ when he released Botany Bay earlier this year on NNA Tapes, but I suppose we can say he’s back again, and he’s bearing yet another gift: a new 7-inch single, “Lion of Judah,” on Not Not Fun. Word has it that he’ll be back soon with a new tape on Moon Glyph.
