I might have kept the best for last. Soviac, then. Remember? I have always been fond of them (since 2007, to be sharp). Even picked their « Back album » as my favourite one of the year 2012. It took them four years to give birth to « Göld » and the result deserves the wait (Listen to it on Spotify // Get it through iTunes).
Let’s be straight: this 2016 album sounds quite different from their previous record. While the « Back album » was a great piece of pop, « Göld » is heavy, nasty, grungy. A bit like some of their old tunes (I’m thinking about « Halte Jick » for those of you who are Soviac fans like I am). I mean, if you like noisy stuff, you’d better check this out. Melodies remain there though and are never buried under the stormy guitars. It holds a bucket of hits, such as « Shesodc », « Golddigger », « Strill » or my fav « Ducklin ». It stands as the most-glorious-Swedish-album-with-heavy-guitars-of-this-current-year. Or something. All in all, a must have.Tweet
