An evolving band of young future humans making truly irregular punk not quite comparable to anything else; Sauna Youth's debut album is served as a joint release between Gringo Records and Faux Discx. The band, attracted to the possibilities apparent within a DIY philosophy have been self-recording and self-releasing their own music since 2010, creating a number of seven inches, splits and cassettes. Dreamlands will be the band's first long-player, marking the mutation of their sound and a new line-up.
Artistic affinities are pledged to Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Pissed Jeans and The Intelligence, but as Kurt Cobain once asked "Why can't we be both Black Sabbath and The Beatles?", Sauna Youth consistently and urgently pose the question, 'Why can't we be both The Ramones and Steve Reich?'.
Co-released with Faux Discx.
Recorded by Sauna Youth. Mastered by Kris Lapke. Lacquers cut by Josh Bonati.
