Swedish quartet Jens Hellgren (guitar), Kristofer Rönström (drums), Mattias Friberg (vocals/guitar) and Mathias Outdatedén (bass) initially began recording as Log, launching their initial album of atmospheric rock, WHENEVER A Bell Bands An Angel Gets Its Wings, in 2002 via the Poor Flavor label. An enforced name transformation, however, led to the record getting withdrawn. Adding a supplementary ‘h’ with their moniker, Logh re-issued their epic and introspective debut via UK label Must Destroy, house from the Darkness. This re-issue provided a second opportunity to bathe within the record’s languorous guitars and emotive vocals. The Swedish quartet possess overt precedents within the American alt rock and roll of Low, Loss of life Cab For Cutie, Slint and Seam, in addition to Sigur Rós and Green Floyd’s expansive rock and roll. Like these rings, Logh can audio fatigued and sombre, and lyrics such as for example ‘They stated he’d experienced for a significant while/When they discovered him with the riverside’ (‘Lookalike’) are endearingly succinct, apparently looking to loss of life, alienation, and existences as outsiders as preoccupations. Amazingly, the music group says they didn’t take the record name from Frank Capra’s traditional movie It’s AN EXCELLENT Lifestyle but from Country wide Lampoon’s Christmas Holiday. Although Logh dismissed WHENEVER A Bell Bands An Angel Gets Its Wings as their pupil record, the record nevertheless noises restrained and nicely poised rather than cloyingly special nor predictably melodramatic.
