Edinburgh Popfest
October 7, 2016 - We’re in trouble deep…

 

I’m just gonna run with what Mikie says in our press release for this one…couldn’t say it better

Formed in Malmö, Sweden by Martin Månsson Sjöstrand (vocals and guitar), Emil Engblom (bass) and Carolina Carlbom (drums and vocals), Dog, Paper, Submarine’s third Small Bear release may be their catchiest and most immediate yet. Recalling the sound of indie-rock’s golden era, the band have been favourably compared to the likes of Guided By Voices, Pavement and Sebadoh, whilst retaining a recognisable sonic identity of their own. Packing 8 songs into 20 minutes, ‘Trouble On Earth’ veers from propulsive, fuzzed-up rock to janglier, sometimes more downbeat fare, making unexpected detours but always packed with inviting melodies. Existing fans of the band (and frontman Martin’s lo-fi side project This Heel) will not be disappointed, as everything that has made previous releases great is present here, with enough fresh twists and turns to make this record a vital addition to their catalogue.

Obvs, as per…you can find it in the Bearshop.
