Most excellent summer record to be. Very cool mix of all the good stuff that can be so called Alternative and Indie Rock. The pedalsteel adds a very cool Americana feel. All in all a very good mix of old Hüsker/Dinosaur like and new fresh incredients! Nicely done. Not boring!! Highly appreciated! Very cool feel! Cheers
Swedish alternative rock group Omni of Halos enters the stage with their self-titled debut album. ”Omni of Halos”, a guitar-driven explosion of noisy pop music, contains the four tracks from the 2022 EP ”Care Free” (previously only released digitally) from plus six new, until now unreleased songs. This collection of skewed, bittersweet, and beautiful tracks was recorded and produced by Per Stålberg (Division of Laura Lee, Pablo Matisse, etc) in Welfare Studios. Offering a unique mixture of distinct vocals, vibrant rhythms, and rich pedal steel guitar melodies, ”Omni of Halos” stands out from its kind while still communicating a sound firmly rooted in the expressive soundscapes of the alternative ’80s and ’90s. The album was mixed by John Agnello, known for his work with Dinosaur JR, Sonic Youth, and Kurt Vile, to name a few.

Every track here is solid gold. As a lifelong Pixies fan, I'd also followed the Breeders and the Kelley Deal 6000. This album was the first amalgamation of all of those sounds into the perfect sonic stew! Listening now even brings me back to the summer it was released and hanging out on a friend's porch where this was on repeat all summer long. I love this record! It's a part of me now. Thomas Raven
