Sad Day For Puppets are Sonic Cathedral’s latest signings. They hail from Blackeberg in Sweden, setting for ‘Let The Right One In’ (a link culled from I Am The Crime blog, who are giving a different track away). They concoct fuzz-drenched swirling soundscapes capped with a icy drawl from singer Anna Eklund. They sound not wholly unlike Asobi Seksu but admit to living in awe of Dinosaur Jr.
They know their place too – the only gig currently listed on Sad Day For Puppets’ MySpace is Shoegazers Anonymous in Stockholm. That kind of therapy session would last some time. Their debut album ‘Unknown Colours’ is out next week on Sonic Cathedral. Go forth and swathe yourself in feedback.
