Every now and then a record comes along which reminds me why I do this. I was thinking just yesterday that it's been quite a slow month as far as good records are concerned and then without warning the debut album from Celestial appears. I'd heard the earlier E.P.s and stuff so I knew what I was expecting but what I got was not far from indiepop perfection. Celestial is basically just one guy called Andreas Hagman, who as the name might suggest hails from that current hotbed of indie cuteness, Sweden. I have been deliberately avoiding Swedish bands on Burning World over the last year or so because as exellent as many of them are they do get loads of coverage elseware, and quite rightly so. This record though is so good that I would have to remove my eyebrows with an electric sander if I didn't give it it's dues. Listen I can't big this up enough so I'm just gonna shut up and let you download the two tracks below.
The album is called Dream On and is avaliable now through Skipping Stone Records
