Logh | Every Time A Bell Rings, An Angel Gets His Wings (Must Destroy)
Previously operating without the 'h' in their name - before legal action prompted some swift grammatical adjustments - Logh are a Swedish rock band that exist on a different plane to most of their Scandinavian counterparts. Building slow, desolate, delicate guitar hooks into elongated instrumental passages that are only broken by hushed vocals, Logh drift far and wide from their average verse-chorus-verse cousins.
Logh are clearly unafraid to reveal their prog-rock leanings. They're moody, they're ever so slightly gloomy, but they never, ever do angry. Like Sigur Ros stealing bittersweet guitar hooks from 'The Bends'-era Radiohead, these songs stretch, flex and spin around the Pink Floyd cesspit before drifting off to higher places entirely. You'll never quite know what took you there, and there's no easy come-down.
