The idea is to highlight one record every day of the week, as to help people check out some of the great records available on the table and hopefully highlight something you may not normally check out or just check out even more great music. Hope to do one record a day during the week not weekends as I probably wont keep up with that. This should give you a little bit of info from us on the release background on the band or something to that effect, a stream so you can listen to the record and link to buy it and the normal blurb we copy and paste from who ever released the record. So here we go ROTD#1...
Record Of The Day #1: Litovsk - Maxi 12"
The third 12" from French anarcho/post punk Litovsk are back kicking off with some urgent post punk with 'Cerises et Grenades' that is familiar to previous recording before departing a more mature melancholic sound that is as equally captivating, that has kept it on heavy rotation. Comes with printed innersleeve and a slimline 8-page booklet.
Blurb: Growing up at the end of the world makes you feel unique and timeless things. There is universality in life apart from the excessive urbanism of big cities, rocked by the waves and a not so rare sun. The teenage years are those of endless summers where feelings and the taste for freedom enter a new dimension. LITOVSK takes a look at this period but also on its commitment to activism and questions its relationship to others, social determinism and religious faith.This record could be described as a kind of testimony but it’s much more than that : lyrics, music and artwork go in the same direction and form a rich protean ensemble. During these five songs, LITOVSK ventures into new territories with more melodies and more room for melancholy without losing anything of their singular sound and energy. This 12’’ was recorded between Leipzig and Brittany and it is brilliantly illustrated by Evan Luven’s full of sensitivity photos.
