Artist: SEWER ELECTION
Title: Nära
Format: LP
Label: Jartecknet
Country: Sweden
Price: $24.00
“Gothenburgs finest is back with another fullength recording, offering a delicate and puzzling experience, showing new aspects to the audial works of Sewer Election. Chilling oscillating drones and field recordings woven into an intricate mixture, presenting a more personal sound than ever.
Comes with bigger inlay with extensive liner notes by Matthias Andersson. Released in 350 copies.” - Jartecknet.
“Instigated with “Kassettmusik” (iDEAL, 2008) and its suffocating minimalism, carefully elaborated into the brutish musique concréte of “Bristning” (RTB, 2009) to later fully blossom into the crude reel-to-reel odysseys of “Vidöppna Sår” (PAN, 2010) and “Vittra Sönder” (Throne Heap, 2012), “Nära” pretty much feels like the perfect culmination of the Sewer Election explorations of the last five years or so. Perhaps the most laid back and mellow Sewer Election so far, “Nära” blends the now very beautifully executed tape-manipulations with sparse oscillating tones and a heavy but at the same time subtle use of everyday life recordings from the near surroundings.” - Matthias Andersson, Fördämning Fanzine, April 2014.

Title: Vidöppna Sår
Format: LP
Label: Pan
Country: UK
Price: $33.00
"Following on from his Kassettmusik release, Vidöppna Sår is an evolution in scum-brow field recordings and voice recorded to mono tape -- akin to OU Revue -- recorded on a building site. This record shows the development, as witnessed from his recent live performances, of aggressive blur build-up and ominous restraint, tape speed replacing effect pedals, going beyond the mere junk noise description and closer to the original idea of musique concrete, namely altering everyday sounds onto tape into a wholly other vocabulary. Sewer Election is Dan Johansson, based in Gothenburg, Sweden. He is most known for his extreme and nasty noise on often limited edition cassettes and obscure vinyl releases on labels such as iDEAL, Troniks, Chondritic Sound, Release the Bats!, Freak Animal, Segerhuva, and Gameboy to name a few. He is a member of the Swedish collective Utmarken and lo-fi group Attestupa. What separates him from the rest of the wall-of-noise heads is that he is great at creating uncomfort and filth. To experience his stuff is like experiencing pure power and energy through subtle and restrained soundscapes of a world falling into pieces. The LP is mastered by Viktor Ottosson and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, in a limited edition of 330 hand-numbered copies, pressed on 140g vinyl and comes in a poly-lined inner sleeve. It is packaged in a pro-press jacket, which is itself housed in a two-tone silkscreened PVC sleeve with interweaving geometric designs. All artwork by Kathryn Politis and Bill Kouligas." -Pan.

Title: Vittra Sonder
Format: LP
Label: Throne Heap
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Tape manipulation and metal abuse at its absolute finest. A few minutes of primitive organ melody mark the A-side of this LP, while the flipside features some percussive stabs so sparsely placed that they could nearly be counted on one hand. Although these musical passages are brief, they are worth mentioning as they significantly compliment the overall mood & pacing of the album. Deep within the dark grooves of Vittra Sonder the musique truly meets the concrete. Recorded at Utmarken Gothenburg, Sweden 2010 - 2011. Mastered for vinyl by Viktor Ottosson. Edition of 300 in pro-printed jackets." - Throne Heap.
