Tiden är kommen, klockan har klämtat.
Karma Tree släpper singel den 3 juni.
Efter månader av rep och ytterligare månader av inspelning, mixning och lyssning har vi fått ihop vårt andra album. Denna singel som du den 3 juni kommer att få höra är det första steget in i ditt nya favoritmästerverk. Det är med andra ord dags att lämna vår gamla skiva bakom er.
Available at Spotify, BandCamp and more.
It has been a long time since we released something big, three years to be more specific. We are back and we hope you are as well.
Check out our gigs for show info.

- Notes: “Äntligen kan vi avslöja att vi släpper en ny skiva “Always Near” den 12e juni! Vi anordnar därför en stor releasefest på Debaser Slussen och guess what: helt gratis att komma in! Tre år sedan släppte vi vår debutskiva “Sleepium” och nu är vi tillbaka igen med en självinspelad och självproducerad skiva som är lite mörkare men också lite deppigare. Extremt värt att notera är att våra favorit-DJs NILOF ska hålla stämningen på topp hela kvällen. Se till att dra med alla ni känner så lovar vi att kicka igång juni så det svider. Puss, Karma Tree”

We are still mixing our new album. It’s sounding really good. Unfortunately we had to slow down on working this summer and attend to personal matters, so the album is taking a little longer than originally planned. But it’s coming.
In the meantime, what can I tell you about the album? The songs are clearly written by us, but they sound way different from Sleepium. I can only speak for myself, but I associate this album with where we live. There is a sense of cocooning away in Sweden and the album reflects that. Like wearing long johns, pants, a t-shirt, a hoodie and a massive winter jacket with both hoodies up and staring at a wall. For about four months every year I (and everyone else around here) have to wear a ridiculous amount of clothing just so I don’t freeze to death. So all you do is long and dream about being on a beach somewhere. You swear that you’ll never take shorts for granted again. You rarely see your friends, because who wants to take public transportation (which is likely delayed) for an hour and have to wade through 3m of snow. You get the picture; it fucks with your head. So, to me, we have songs on this album that either accept the inevitable defeat (the end of Tesla just sounds like a bad winter storm), songs that long to be in another physical space (Someone told me that the slide guitar on one of the songs sounds like Hawaii/Spongebob Squarepants) and songs that create that physical space inside your head instead (DWYAT being a good example).
Slaving away to try to make these mixes great, I think it’s worth the little extra wait. We have plenty more material and promise that it won’t be another two years until you hear something new from us. Until then, enjoy fall while it lasts and brace yourselves for a shitty winter with a great soundtrack.
Our old friend and band member David Åhrström, also known as seabiscuit, has just released his second procreation. Check out the album here: http://seabiscuit.bandcamp.com/
I bet more info will be available at http://wemakeinstantclassics.tumblr.com/ later on!
Good work David!
Just got back from a gig at Lava/Kulturhuset in city Sthlm. Really nice gig with lots of energy, we played our most powerfull and fistpunching songs. Good response from the audience even tough most of them had never heard us or about us before tonight. They were at the gig for the band playing after us and/or the headlining band – Sore Eyelids (swe) and Moving Mountains (us).
Tomorrow we are playing in Kungsträdgården, down the street from Kulturhuset. The show starts at 20.00. I hope you guys can be there!
Stay tuned for more info/teasers/clips/goof on the new album.
No shows booked at the moment.
