Among other things, 2018 saw Scandinavian Psych/Spacerock outfit Les Big Byrd release their superbly named second album Iran Iraq IKEA – coincidentally it is one of the finest record titles of any year.
With their LP still fresh in the memory, the Swedish foursome have shared a brand new video of a vital session performance of album standout ‘A Little More Numb’. Recorded shortly before a Danish show, the band took time out to visit Aarhus based Tapetown Studio, and rattled through a furious live session. The outcome of which is a sweet and simply astounding blend of parts Kraut, Psych and Spacerock, with proto-punk, garage rock, and punctuated with moments of pure pop brilliance. It is like an unholy but beautiful coming together of Spiritualized meets Jonathan Richman; and that is mighty company to be in no matter who you are!
