LP - black vinyl

Like a dream foggily remembered, Öga
for Öga is tempting in its beauty yet slightly
menacing in its depth.
 These songs, like paths in the forest, are heavily, almost treacherously, reverberated, with finger-
plucked guitars acting as your signposts amongst the flora and fauna of field recordings, pads and 
the cool, calm voice of Elin Engström.

The album is the second from Engström as 
Loopsel. She is a Gothenburg-based musician and 
one half of both the group Monokultur and the 
team behind the tiny Mamma’s Mystersika 
Jukebox label with her partner JJULIUS.
 During what seemed like the nadir of the 
pandemic, the blurry, otherworldly sounds 
emanating from their living room snaked into the 
office of New York’s DFA Records, where the
 otherwise dutifully DIY pair found the scale of
 worldwide release and distribution.
