Purge (Gatefold Vinyl)



New pressings of the critically praised debut album 'Purge LP' by Louise Lemón (a deluxe vinyl LP in Gatefold packaging, and for the first time available on CD) is released through Stockholm based dark pop label Icons Creating Evil Art. The up and coming death-gospel artist Louise Lemón hails from Sweden and intertwines the dark, windy and cold Scandi ambiance into her music. Having recorded her debut album Purge LP in a haunted cabin in the north of Sweden and then flown to Seattle to mix it together with Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Myrkur, Chelsea Wolfe et al.), the setting is eerie and many light years away from the current pop landscape. The haunted sound on the LP fits right in the isolated space between dream and reality, which stretches endlessly from one melancholy track to the next in horrific beauty. Louise says: "This record has been a very personal journey, first writing the songs, then getting to records it together with my long time band member and friend Anders Ludwigsson, then expanding the sound with Randall Dunn." What's the outcome? The tracks sound like they belong to a larger canon of Southern California gothic albums because they send the listener into gloomier and rawer territory, giving it that hypnotic and supernatural edge when a scuzzy blend of guitars take over, reminding us of the self-confessed sad girl Lana del Rey. Louise adds: "It is very important for me to be completely involved and to be able to work with people I trust and respect. To then have them colour the music and sound is very rewarding. Working with Randall Dunn was an amazing experience and I chose him because I wanted to expand the sound, make it heavier and darker and at the same time opening it up, letting it be vulnerable The record is called 'Purge', and making it has really been a cleansing and growing process, everything I write is deeply personal, and to me the sounds express just as much as the lyrics."
