CELEBRATION OF A NEW DAWN
Since forming back in 2008, Finnish garage-rockers Black Lizard have been busy leading the charge in the ever-fruitful Scandinavian underground with their relentless gig schedule and a constant stream of releases. They've collaborated with the likes of Anton Newcombe and Sonic Boom and toured Europe,sharing the stage with everyone from Brian Jonestown Massacre, DIIV, The Men, The Horrors, Allah-Las and Veronica Falls. This third album was recorded in the basement of a rundown 50s movie theatre turned recording studio and is a sublime excursion into Sixties-indebted, washed-out garage-pop. Bright, vivid and lysergic, the record manages to be unapologetically nostalgic yet carve out its own glorious, introspective pastiche - repackaging the Nuggets-esque garage/psych-pop and early-90s shoegaze swoons for 21st-century wastoids.
