In the spring of 2019 ShitKid - Åsa Söderqvist and Lina Molarin Ericsson - headed over to the US for a couple of shows at the SXSW festival in Austin, TX but ahead of the festival they managed to squeeze in a couple of days in the studio – first in LA with the legendary the Melvins and then in Austin with Paul Leary of Butthole Surfers. The new album Duo Limbo/”Mellan himmel å helvete” collects the recordings from these two sessions, half of which are ShitKid’s first recordings in their native Swedish – with a set of four songs to start with the band set out to record them in both English and Swedish, clocking in at just over 26 minutes.

I stumbled upon this a few days ago, pushed play, and wasn't sad about it. There's some great riffs, plenty of weirdness, and good lyrical content to be heard on this album. I recommend it to anyone who is a fan, or wants to be a one, of the Melvins Tom's Reviews
