New recording Angles 9

In January 2017 Angles 9 will release their new album “Disappeared behind the sun” on CD. In March 2017 it will be out on  LP. Both releases will be on Clean Feed records. But Omlott records in Gothenburg has already released Angles 9’ debut 7 inch.

From the press release:

Angles 9′ 7” single has been launched by fabulous Omlott records in December 2016.The two songs on the single are raw extracts from a much larger recording session (with a later release date) made in May 2016 in Sickla, Stockholm by Anton Sundell. He is responsible for the very literal cassette approach we can hear: very sharp, loud and punchy and with a lot of wit thrown into the vortex of this mad mix.With members from all over the place: from Fire!, Atomic, Subtropic Arkestra, Je Suis, Team Hegdal, Oddjobb, Per Texas Johansson 4tett, All Included…. Angles 9 makes music that really stands out. For what it is worth.”Equality & Death (mothers, fathers where are ye?)” is a desperate kick in the global totalitarian face.”Pacemaker” is about young and old – to keep the pace, ad infinitum….
Andreas Werliin, Johan Berthling, Goran Kajfes, Alexander Zethson, Magnus Broo, Mats Äleklint, Eirik Hegdal, Mattias Ståhl and Martin Küchen invite you to the musical putsch of the year!

WELCOME!
