Little Big Adventure

- "All my songs are about hate" /Magnus, Little Big Adventure.

Labrador proudly presents Little Big Adventure - a superb one man band that moves in inexplicable ways. We'll release the debut "The Hateful Eye EP" on May 13. You'll get to hear them long before that of course... today to be exact. Enjoy!

With the most delicately poignant pop melodies and hard distorted drums they present songs about hate in a voice that is equally nonchalantly cool, fragile and sweet. And when they sing we should ”go fuck ourselves”, we just want to linger and spin ”"The Hateful Eye" yet another time. Truly marvelous!

BIOGRAPHY (by Magnus Sätterström, Little Big Adventure)

Things turned when I took all my savings and bought a Casio-keyboard. Instead of writing boring guitar songs I could now play everything on this. I’m not exactly a skilled keyboard player so I recorded everything note by note and then cut it all together in my music program. To cover up all my technical flaws I put a noise filter on everything so that no one could hear the glitches between the notes, and no one could hear the noise from the microphone, as everything was noisy.

This was back in the year 2004 and now five years have passed and nothing much has happened. I still write about what has happened since last I was drunk. But now I also write about trying people at school, trying people on the streets, or trying people on the Internet. Or songs about my low self esteem. Or about hate.

I once tried to explain that all my songs are about hate, and that’s probably true, with some very few exceptions.

Midnight Closes In

As you probably know by now: I am obsessed with The Fascination Movement. Their debut EP, 0.5, has been on constant rotation for the latter part of last year and those cold nights when I need my new wave fix. "Radio" still drives me nuts and the new Starcluster Remix brings me down from cloud 9. But it is the Elitechnique Remix of "Just Pretend" that has my player on repeat. I just have to make sure to snatch up one of the 100 copies with hand printed sleeves on March 16! An official release is due out in April - just in time for my birthday!

A1) Radio (Starcluster Remix)
A2) Just Pretend (Elitechnique Remix)
B1) Down Again (ALBAs Rework)
