After forming some five years ago in a Swedish town with a steel mill, then moving to Malmö, buying at least one blue wig, and finally releasing their debut single last year, the five-piece dreamy rock group YAST have completed their self-titled debut LP. Out now in their native Scandinavia and elsewhere April 26th, the record is a winsome jaunt—a very summery sort of Real Estate meets Woods sound that's packed with slow strums, big wah solos and mildly high singing. Check out standouts like the boozy "Always on My Mind," throwback "Heart of Steel" and my favorite, the pleadingly romantic "Strangelife." This'll be a great record for an early summer picnic.
