The Movements

“For their first release, Sunrise Ocean Bender have offered up a belting two-fer-one with Sweden’s The Movements. Not content with simply releasing the first of the sprightly collection, volume 2 has been kindly added to the deal. Fortunately, both albums stand up to each other remarkably well. As with the E GONE album, SOB have made sure that the presentation is really top-notch, which compliments The Movements classy approach to making music.

Brilliantine guitars shimmer, whilst heavenly Hammond organ beautifully supports this masterclass in great songwriting. Great summery psychedelic garage pop. Very worthy of your attention. SOB are making waves.”


“Superlative solo album from The Goners’ Daniel Westerlund covers a lot of space over the course of a record—from astrally inclined folk, ambient to raga expeditions. It holds together quite beautifully too. It definitely has a bite of Scandinavian chill about it, but the overall feeling is the same warm wooziness of OS favourite Papa M’s ‘Live From a Shark’s Cave.’ There is no higher compliment! All housed in the usual high standard SOB packaging. Great to see them coming out of the gate with a strong set of releases. Essential!”
