|LOUISE LEMON PURGE LP Limited 180gram Vinyl LP
The artistically poignant ‘Purge LP’ is released through Stockholm based dark pop label Icons Creating Evil Art in a limited edition 180g LP box format.
The up and coming death-gospel artist Louise Lemon hails from Sweden and intertwines the dark, windy and cold Scandi ambiance into her music. Having recorded her debut album Purge LP in a haunted cabin in the north of Sweden and then flown to Seattle to mix it together with Randall Dunn (Sunn O, Myrkur, Chelsea Wolfe et al.), the setting is eerie and many light years away from the current pop landscape.
The haunted sound on the LP fits right in the isolated space between dream and reality, which stretches endlessly from one melancholy track to the next in horrific beauty.
What’s the outcome? The tracks sound like they belong to a larger canon of Southern California gothic albums because they send the listener into gloomier and rawer territory, giving it that hypnotic and supernatural edge when a scuzzy
blend of guitars take over, reminding us of the self-confessed sad girl Lana del Rey.
