Ok, it's not released yet, the official release of "Voluspa" on Brille Records is set to April 26, but the album has unfortunately leaked. It's a shame that almost all albums nowadays leaks before the release date, but maybe that's the hard life of internet in the 21st century.
But The Golden Filter are aware of this and have made a nice counter attack, where they say that a wise seeress could have seen the leak coming from miles away. As the counter attack they instead make "Voluspa" available to pre-order as a CD or Vinyl LP and in the same time you get the digital Mp3 versions right away along with two bonus tracks not included on the album. 20 random albums will also contain a personalized Polaroid photo, and ownership of a unique star in the sky...
That's Golden Filter generosity! That's why I love them and have longed for their debut album for a whole year, and now it's finally here. So support them and love them by pre-order the great album.
As an album I can say that "Voluspa" sounds like The Golden Filter we're used to hear, and that's of course a good thing. As I have written in several posts before, you can hear when it's The Golden Filter. The beautiful whispering voice from Penelope along with their nice disco beats, it's close to perfection. You will not be disappointed with "Voluspa", it stands up for all the expectations.
