The members of LÅNGFINGER, hailing from the fertile rock 'n'
roll city of Gothenburg,
are masters of the art. They've been playing together since they were in their
early teens, and their imminent third album is both the thrilling culmination of
their collective endeavor, and a rumination on it - on how time has shaped them
and brought them to this point. Within its hard-hitting grooves, the
interlocking of LÅNGFINGER's three disparate characters - Kalle Lilja, the
unflappable, precision axeman; Jesper Pihl, the athletic sticksman battering

LÅNGFINGER's Crossyears features ten tracks recorded by
Johan Reivén and Olle Björck at Sweden's
Welfare Sounds Studio, with additional recordings by the band at Beduin HQ,
mixed by Olle Björck, the album then mastered by Daniel Johansson.
"From the swing and stomp of its title-track to the
organ-laced grandeur of 'Atlas,' the record brims with classic spirit, but
casts off the stylistic restrictiveness of vintage production in favor of a
full, vibrant sound, resulting in a mix that brings out the strengths of both
without sacrificing the obvious chemistry the band has built over their time
together. Also it rocks. Confidently." - The Obelisk
