Sewer Election is part of the inner circle of iDEAL and has an unique power to transfer hopelessness into sound. His recent LP "Malign" for iDEAL is something different from what we expected. But it's a ultra powerful listening experience. "Malign" is a hopeless, melancholic and depressive record. If you had any hopes for the world, "Malign" will erase them. It's real, honest and dark negative energies stuck on tape. Never ending bad vibe guitar melodies, noise, field recordings and tapes - "Malign" is for everyone not into being comfortable. Dan Johansson has never been as minimal as here, his music has echoes of the NYC downtown music scene of the 60's, post war sound art from Germany and pre war noise from Scandinavia.
