It's with pride I write this post today. Back in 2000–2002 I went to a design school named Forsbergs here in Stockholm. I studied graphic design & illustration, nowadays I have the joy to work with design every day (the Tracasseur logo for example). During my years of studies I got to know a lot of great people, among them there were two nice and talented guys named Adam and Carl. They were not only good in making great design but also talented within the musical aspects.
What I didn't know back then, and could of course not do so either, was that these two guys should have a international well-known band called Shout Out Louds in 2010. They have been quite famous the last years and they've just released their third studio album "Work". But what few people know is that back in the days they made their first EP under the band name Luca Brasi, that actually is a character from The Godfather. But when they got some attention, there was a band over in the US that used that same name, so they decided to change into something else, Shout Out Louds was from then their official name.
They have a busy schedule this spring with a lot of touring. They will visit Germany, Austria and Switzerland in March. In April Scandinavia is visited with two gigs in home town of Stockholm. Then in May they are off to the US and Canada.
Several great acts have done remixes of Shout Out Louds, for example Ratatat, Studio, Kleerup, Lo-Fi-Fnk, Architecture In Helsinki and The Subliminal Kid. Today I have collected what I consider the best one's made of some of the best original Shout Out Louds tracks. And until we meet again give all your best to Shout Out Louds at their MySpace and tell them that I said "Hi".
