The Soundtrack of Our Lives, John Norum and Douwe Bob
This week's release list is short, but oh so sweet. And it has got a bit of a Swedish theme to it... find out more below.
Do you like a bit of sixties and seventies influenced rock'n'roll? Then Extended Revelation for the Psychic Weaklings of the Western Civilization by Swedish rock band The Soundtrack Of Our Lives should be right up your alley. Available now as a limited edition of 1000 copies on silver coloured vinyl.
Their fellow countryman John Norum might be best known for being the guitarist of the band Europe, but he has also made some pretty awesome solo records. Today we're releasing his debut solo album Total Control on coloured vinyl for the first time. It's a limited edition of 1500 individually numbered copies on silver marbled vinyl.

Finally, we go from Sweden to the Netherlands, as we've just released singer-songwriter Douwe Bob's brand new album Born to Win, Born to Lose on clear vinyl. Featuring the singles “Hold On” and “Was It Just Me”, this limited edition of only 1250 copies also contains an insert.
Extended Revelation for the Psychic Weaklings of the Western Civilization is the second album by Swedish rock band The Soundtrack Of Our Lives. Heavily influenced bands from the sixties and seventies such as The Rolling Stones and Iggy and the Stooges, the band became popular in both Europe and the United States. Their fame was partially propelled by their songs being featured on popular video game franchises such as FIFA, NHL and Gran Turismo.
Voor zijn vijfde studio-album Born To Win, Born To Lose is Douwe Bob met zijn kersverse nieuwe band de studio in gedoken. Het album heeft een lichte “Born To Win” en een donkere “Born To Lose” kant en met de liedjes slaat Douwe als het ware zijn 'arm om de schouder' van de luisteraar.
Total Control is the debut solo album by John Norum, known for being the guitarist and one of the founding members of the Swedish rock band Europe. The album features nine original songs, including the singles “Let Me Love You” and “Love Is Meant to Last Forever”.
