Swedish band the Shout Out Louds have a new album called Work. And to demonstrate that they worked at it, they put out out a quick teaser video to get you pumped.
The name was chosen for several reasons, according to singer Adam Olenius, who exclusively told us (and everyone else on their mailing list):
"I am fascinated by the process of creating something and almost working yourself to death, the relief that comes when it is over and the ability to just shut off a part of one's life. Work also means that something does work," to reach a goal. A song from John Cale and Lou Reed's "Songs For Drella" also inspired our album title choice."
Work was recorded at Bear Creek Studio in Seattle and was produced by Phil Ek, who also does a few small bands you might know, like Modest Mouse and Fleet Foxes. Nice rap sheet! Check out the vid:
Also be sure to check out photos from the recording sessions on the bands website. Work is out February 2010 on Merge.-joe puglisi
