V/A Turist i tillvaron Vol.5 (LP)
This compilation serie is fucking impressive, this is the 5th volume and 80 bands has been introduced so far. And it's ONLY swedish bands, Turist i tillvaron is the proof that the swedish scene are fucking strong. There is bands from north to south and east to west and every volume have lot's of good bands from all kind of punk genres. I guess that everybody knows that we have a b big pile of good hc/crust bands but it's the soft/punkrock bands who have impressed most, like Vånna Inget, Nobelkommittén and Glidslem from the earlier volumes.
On this volume I will put some highlight on Brottsvåg! and The Volcano, two good punkrock bands. Gatans Lag is good as always, their song about hipsters is one of the best tracks this year, I have liked their street-ish punkrock from the beginning. More punkrock will you get from Math and the Blah Blah Blahs, Hjärtattack and Jealous Cowards. There is some good hardcore acts on this volume where Angelpiss is the first band out and probably the best as well, both Fredag den 13:e and Sub Alert has never been a disappointment for me and not this time either. Spiknykter and Utbrott are two new acquaintances and I like their hardcore punk.
UX Vileheads sounds a bit like The Exploited and that can never wrong. Lurken Boogie Band is pretty fun but I think you have to be a swede to enjoy them, or? So who's left... Blåslampa, Vinnarcirkeln and Nedslagsplats. None of them are bad but the standard is high and all bands can't really make it all the way. A big thanx to Sörling who release this compilation serie, Vol. 6 will be out in March 2013.
