Laakso - Great Times Underground

"We grow older, we grow bad"

Laakso are one of my favorite bands of 2007 and now they've released an epilogue of sorts to their brilliant album Mother, Am I Good Looking. Surprisingly, the new EP (Vasterbron & Vampires) sounds a bit different than the album that came before it. The songs are less pop oriented and spend a lot more time building up to a dramatic crescendo than presenting a concise, catchy song. If that doesn't make sense now, it will after you listen to the EP. Putting that aside, though, the songs are fantastic and form a bit of a mini concept record about, what else, vampires. Great Times Underground is the most concise of the three new tracks and the loudest. It doesn't have the orchestral grandeur of the other tracks but I think you'll like it just the same.
