Light Screamer: Switch LP
Light Screamer was formed in Örebro, Sweden, in 2011 by Ida Andersson-Norrie, Jens Hellman, Peter Lindström and Tobias Eriksson. They are well-known for their intense and chaotic live shows, something that led them to SXSW in 2013 and 2014, resulting in a record deal with Austin label Australian Cattle God Records for their debut album.
"Switch" marks the end of an era for Light Screamer, with Tobias' departure transitioning them into a three-piece. This separation is evident in the energy of the album which combines chaos, order, beauty, ugliness, noise, harmony, anger and calm in a 40-minute ride that takes you through nine very different songs that make up a greater whole. The cover was created by award-winning Austin artisti, Win Wallace, who made a graphical interpretation of the album.
Light Screamer's previous releases and live shows have gotten excellent reviews. Slavestate magazine named one of their shows the best live performance of the year and musicians such as Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers) and Brett Bradford (Scratch Acid) have been praising the band.
