Sauna Youth - Distractions LP
Sauna Youth - Distractions LPWith second album 'Distractions', Sauna Youth showcase their ability to infuse a classic punk aesthetic with skilful artistry. Of course, they're not the first band to do this, but there's plenty of depth to the songs and Sauna Youth more than deserve to take their place among the current cerebral punk rock flag bearers. 'Distractions' is a triumph in every respect, from the frantic rush of the metaphorical moshpit that dresses up thrilling numbers like 'Modern Living' or the blisteringly brilliant 'The Bridge', right down to the quirky and ambiguous photography of the band on the sleeve, and through to the no holds barred production. You can smell the sweat from here. 'Dreamlands' places itself in a lineage which includes the Buzzcocks, Flipper, the Descendents, Wire and Thee Oh Sees. LP - Limited to 700 Copies on 180 Gram Clear Orange/ Red-ish Vinyl with Booklet.
