This week Record Store Day revealed their full list of special releases for this year's extravaganza. In amidst the special editions, reissues and split singles sits Ulrika Spacek's new EP Suggestive Listening. It's a strange way to put out a new release, but as the band explains, it's not exactly a normal release for them; it was recorded “in that empty space when you're waiting for your last record to come out," and they set themselves the goal of doing something completely different from the interweaving three-part guitars that featured throughout Modern English Decoration.

Judging by the single released from it, 'Lord Luck', this led them to a much more open and warm sound, completely destroying their usual walls of noise and beckoning people in to join them. The song drifts beautifully through its runtime, meandering into different aural spaces and back again, without losing the central propulsive thread.

It seems kind of a shame when Ulrika Spacek say “We won’t return to this sound again. Though as fanatical fans of music, we feel the beauty lies in how these different offshoots go on to inform our future records.” But at least we will have the EP. Check out 'Lady Luck' below.
