MAKEOUTS: Svarta Läder: 7”

Sep 17, 2015

Swedish band Makeouts packs a solid punch with “Svarta Läder” (translates to Black Leather), just a perfect mix of rock’n’roll and post-punk that’s got a great hook that’s super catchy. Not an easy task. Honestly sounds like a cross between Neon Piss and Sudor. I also dig the spacey looped effects, which makes it weirder. Flip to side B at 33 RPM, there’s a live recording of “Svarta Läder” as well as “Hjärndöd,” which is recorded a tad grainier, as is to be expected. “Hjärndöd” is slower, with a bit less punch than the previous song, but is still really good. This goes in the permanent collection.
