On Pig Eyes' second album (appropriately titled 2nd Album), the Swedish psych-punks slowly step away from the straight-ahead, hardcore leanings of the first record and delve deeper into darker, more progressive territories. This isn't to say the band—which includes members of hardcore punk band Nitad and "Svart Rockers" In Solitude—has completely forgotten its roots; this is punk in the Wipers or Birthday Party tradition, which is something most bands fail to channel successfully (or even acknowledge). It's with this burning desire to evolve, expand and experiment that makes Pig Eyes a band everyone needs to get excited about.
US edition on clear vinyl, housed in tip-on jacket. Limited to 500 copies.
