Deportees (S)
    Friday February 17, 2012 12:30am - 1:00am @ The Crossroad Club
    Deportees are a Swedish four-piece band consisting of brothers Anders and Peder Stenberg, Thomas Hedlund and Mattias Lidström. Following their critically acclaimed and award winning album “Under The Pavement – The Beach” (2009) they now return with a new work “Islands & Shores”, a creative outburst that captures a world in gradual disintegration and indignation – a world where everyone is an island – and the dream of a love greater than death. “Islands & Shores” was recorded in Stockholm and Umeå over the last two years and although the members have been busy undertaking other musical journeys (Thomas plays the drums with French band Phoenix and Anders plays the guitar with Lykke Li, who is also featured on a track) the band has spent an unhealthy amount of time together in an old Kung-Fu dojo which now serves as their headquarters. From this site the band has created a strikingly beautiful and sincere pop album full of eccentric arrangements, fantastic harmonies and a love for details that will keep you coming back for more. Even though the music echoes of Paul Simon, Suicide, Arthur Russell, World, Arcade Fire and Big Star it keeps resisting easy categorization. Many Swedish critics have already named “Islands & Shores” album of the year.
