Graveyard - Ain't Fit to Live Here
I thought I take a Swedish band today :D
Usually I take the band after Im doing em,
but today I want to give u all the opportunity, to go and look on them.
Graveyard and my favvo band Hong Faux will come
to Kägelbanan Thursday the 24th of March In Stockholm!!
Hong Faux is a rock band from Stockholm, that we had on Tune Of The Day
on the 16th of March.
This is nothing u should miss.
The band's sound can be somewhat simplified be described as classic rock and it does not require digging deeper musically to locate Graveyard musical influences. Graveyard is based both their sound and their look of a solid "retro ground" - but is certainly much more than just a repetition of the past. They rather take the 70s sound on to our time.
They will release a new album this spring named "Hisingen Blues",
It is produced, recorded, and mixed in analog by Don Alsterberg (JOSÉ GONZALES, JUNIP, SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES, THE INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY) at Don Pierre Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is due out in Europe on March 25 and in North America on April 19th.
The band offer their commentary on their recording sessions:
“We recorded the album in several different sessions. As much as possible, we tried to do live. All of it is 100% analog… and we'd like to take this opportunity to once and for all kill the argument that recording analog is ‘retro’ or that we've got a ‘retro’ sound. Analog recording is just one technique among many. Just like you build a house using bricks, wood or whatever. Paint a picture using oil, acrylic or Photoshop.
Our music sounds best recorded analog; other bands sound best using nothing but computers and a thousand filters. Analog recording brings warmth and an organic feeling to the music, that's what we like. To us, ‘retro’ is often something negative, meaning an unimaginative repetition of what has been or just a carbon copy of something old. We play timeless classic hard rock with a lot of blues and psychedelic influences among many others. And regarding analog being retro: Go through the history of rock and pick your best twenty albums. How many of them have been recorded on computers? Don't mistake classic pieces of work for retro.”
