Scandinavia, implausibly, continues its ascendancy as a source of fine music, with Sweden’s Logh (pronounced: Log) falling off themselves-a beautiful mesh of ennui and understated angst. The very antithesis of The Hives, they’ll appeal to lovers of Low, Wheat and early Floyd. Every note sounds like it was wrenched painfully from their innermost emotional core, but for all the sobriety and greyness, it’s ultimately uplifting, warm and watery. It’s the second track, “Yellow Lights Mean Slow Down, Not Speed Up”, which flags up their knack for patience, tease, and the telling breakout guitar fling.
Like finding a suicide note after its author has decided not to commit suicide.
