Turn Off Your Television – Swede As Can Be!
I’m pretty much digging this album of the same name by “Turn Off Your Television”. Honestly there is not a “throw-away” song in the lot and the free offerings below are among those that rose to the top for me. It is a well made album and being offered completely free at bandcamp below. The sound is well described by others, but I would add that some of the tunes have a cool slow-wave sound without being droning or overly saturated. Fill up your “aural” cup today with Turn Off Your Television.
Turn off your television is a three man band from Sweden with influences in the 60s, 70s and the 90s. Inspired by the likes of Sparklehorse, Grand archives, Luna and Belle and Sebastian. Many people describe their music as soft melodic pop with simple and memorable hooks.
What others say:
Melting hearts with their melodic acoustic pop, this Swedish outfit has a feel of Grandaddy spliced with Sparklehorse – Gill Mills, Best of myspace
They sound a little like Band of horses, in a good way… Sandra Berg, Swedish blogger
Great production!!!! It sounds amazing!! Open and crisp and analog sound without all the overcompression that seems to be so fashionable these days – Jose Lopez, Northwestmastering
