Casablanca Miskatonic Grafitti on 2LP
Swedish band Casablanca consists of Anders Ljung, Josephine Forsman, Mats Rubarth, Erik Almström, Erik Stenemo and Ryan Roxie. Casablanca has so far released two albums - debut Apocalyptic Youth and the sequel Riding a Black Swan. Now comes their third full length album Miskatonic Graffiti.
Miskatonic Graffiti is a 10-track concept album in three parts; we follow the stories and events that take place in the small fictional town of The Mountains, as well as a tour of the inner core of rock and the futility of the existence of mankind. All played beneath the cold nonchalant cosmos. As if Ziggy Stardust met H. P. Lovecraft in Twin Peaks!
Despotz Records' Carl-Marcus Gidlöf says, "In the current climate in the industry, this concept album feels just right. This album offers a combination of sharp singles embedded with long intro and outro songs, and a story and sound that captivates the listener like a favorite TV series that you just don't want to end."
