The Albums of Our Lives

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.
