Dinked 228 comes courtesy of Austrian duo MOLLY, with their second album, Picturesque!
The album’s seemingly brief tracklisting belies a work of great beauty and depth, and one which turned into a one-man crusade for singer/guitarist Lars Andersson, intertwining deeply personal stories with his love for the era of Romanticism. “Every time I go to a museum and I’m about to pass through the era of Romanticism I stop in awe,” says Lars of the enduring appeal of the 18th century artistic movement. “Whatever it is – stories, paintings, music – it triggers something deep within me, something profoundly human. It really hits a nerve, and it utterly immerses me to a point where I can’t move.”
The album replicates this feeling; a gloriously over-the-top blend of Slowdive and Sigur Rós, mixed with the single-mindedness of Daniel Johnston and the noisiness of Nirvana, it’s as bold and beautiful and every bit as ornate as the art that inspired it.
The Dinked Edition of Picturesque includes:
● The “Dark Romanticism” edition, on midnight blue vinyl *
● Exclusive metallic blue artwork *
● Gatefold sleeve
● Obi-strip *
● 12” x 24” fold-out glossy print *]
and is limited to 400 copies!
“This isn’t an album to lose yourself in, it’s one to get swept away by.” “‘More is more’ was definitely the credo when making this record”.
