Track of the week - Angels With Dirty Faces by The Swedish Railway Orchestra

On December 6th, the deluxe digital edition of one of our albums of the year, The Swedish Railway Orchestra's Dance To The Drum Machine, will be released. It contains 25 songs - the original album plus b-sides, demos and some new songs. One of the tracks which didn't make the cut is right here for you - Angels With Dirty Faces is a funky psych weird out.

There's a pre-order deal open now on the TSRO Bandcamp page - use the button below to avail. You get all 25 tracks when they are released plus a vinyl copy of the album for €18. Tis the season of good will after all. The standalone LP is still available in our shop - currently on sale at €16.
