Around 20th of January we will release a new single on Mega Dodo. Thee Psychedelicatessen describe it so good that we don’t have to do it ourselves:
”The final part of the excellent Mega Dodo Singles Club is nearly ready for release…….hot on the heels of their forthcoming release of an EP of Sandy Denny covers for Fruits de Mer Records, Mega Dodo will release a 7″ single of new material from Swedish Psych Folk duo Us and Them in mid January.
Made up of Britt Rönnholm, who sings, and Anders Håkanson, who plays the instruments, Us And Them play beguiling Psychedelic Folk deeply inspired by the music of Sandy Denny, Donovan, Bert Jansch, Vashti Bunyan, Duncan Browne and Pentangle and the single ‘When I Was Walking’ c/w ‘Green Couch’ reveals all these influences. Their previous release on Mega Dodo, the album Summer Green And Autumn Brown, was reviewed on Strange Things Are Happening in September 2015 where we wrote “As if by strange magic, Us And Them have created an album of such fragile beauty that is part pastoral folk, part something more melancholic…Dominated by Britt’s haunting voice Summer Green And Autumn Brown reflects the changing of the seasons, slowly shifting from a trippy, slightly proggy, stroll through lush fields and woodland landscapes flecked with sunshine and shadows to a hazier place where the dark nights are slowly drawing in and there is a chill in the air.”

A fantastic review for our forthcoming 10 inch Fading within the dwelling sun from The Sunday experience: ” When you consider the wealth of releases and the names who’ve graced the label – the pretty things, soft hearted scientists, beau, vibravoid, the chemistry set et al, as impeccable and illustrious the FdM back catalogue is, this might just well be the finest thing they’ve put out to date.” Read the whole review on the reviewpage here on usandthem.se.
