Last Days Of April 2000 era

A hook is a hook…but with Last Days Of April, it’s an epic masterpiece…

Hobbledehoy proudly presents the vinyl LP 20 year anniversary release of Angel Youth, the 2000 breakout third album from Sweden’s Last Days Of April.

A hook is a hook…but with Last Days Of April, it’s an epic masterpiece. Inventive arrangements, bittersweet melodies, flawless instrumentation and the masterful production of Fireside’s Pelle Gunnerfeldt give Angel Youth its hidden edge. Layers of strings and pianos surround songs examining the tender sting of relationships past. Receiving critical praise within indie circles worldwide, an outstanding record that remains a cult favourite now twenty years on.

Originally released on CD by Swedish label Bad Taste in 2000, licensed by several small labels around the world including Australia and Japan, then finally to the United States in 2001 by Deep Elm. The bands presence would quickly grow as press and radio excitement for the young Swedish band was getting more momentum. Angel Youth was fresh and original with a strong emotional melodic pop element, uniquely LDOA…

The record previously had a small, one time vinyl pressing by German label Green Hell in 2000. Often fetching triple figures on various reseller marketplaces.
