Konkylie, the debut album by Danish four-piece When Saints Go Machine is out today on
!K7 Records. It’s already a huge hit around here, and according to the
forthcoming BLURT review: “Whether they are reaching for enlightment or
shaking their collective bootie, the effect is polished and sensual, their
melodies wrapped in diaphanous washes, their slinky rhythms muted under baroque
vocal flourishes. It’s hard to say whether When saints Go Machine are best
suited for dancing, thinking or making out — but probably best not to try all
three at once.”
Watch for the full review later this week, and meanwhile, you
can watch a live-in-Copenhagen video of “Church and Law” below or hear the
whole album streaming right now over at Spinner.
