Hanna Hirsch- Tala Svart LP. The very much anticipated debut album from Stockholm's Hanna Hirsch. Following up several seveninches, Tala Svart takes the bands powerful pop sensibility to total perfection. Self described as an "awkward Buzzcocks", Hanna Hirsch continues to dig deep into the underground of popular culture of the last 30 years here creating a minor masterpiece of beautiful punky powerpop. All 14 tracks are A-side single material. Life elevating and absolutely necessary music. Mastered by John Golden (Sonic Youth, Superchunk etc). Dual Plover styled glossy gatefold-sleeve with black felt with artwork by Siri and a nice beefy 20 page booklet. Think all early Rough Trade 7"s, Modern Lovers, Greetings From Asbury Park-era Springsteen, Tar... Feathers, The Starvations, Jail Weddings etc.
