New York's Stinky Records label will release the second album from Iceland's Sinagpore Sling, Life Is Killing My Rock 'N' Roll September 14. They play NYC's Mercury Lounge July 15. This is what some folks thought of their '03 debut album.
Iceland’s Singapore Sling turn fuzzed-out guitars and lanky rhythms into the kind of psychedelic wall of sound that My Bloody Valentine and the Jesus and Mary Chain used to make. For the band’s debut CD, songwriter Henrick Bjornsson stacked layer upon layer of guitar drone, relenting only on the strummy and oddly buoyant ‘Summer Garden…. the Curse is quite a heavy piece of work. Heavy, not with the metal connotation, but like the hippies used to say: weighty, important. Awesome.” – Jenny Eliscu/Rolling StonePosted by MK Magazine at July 3, 2004 04:33 PM
