Dedicated readers and visitors have had access to the songs we recorded with The Rockford Heroes for quite a long time now. But know we have also put the songs together, given this collection a name and released this collection digitally on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon and about 500 other similar services.

If this had been a traditional release, it would probably have been called an “EP“. I have no idea how much people nowadays now about such concepts. For me, EP is much associated with vinyl, even if there have been CD EP:s as well. And now digital versions as well. We are of course not the first, that’s not what I’m saying, guess there are a couple of hundred thousends releases like this before ours. But maybe just a very few that sounds better 😉

What about the name? Light scares. That is, just as with the lyrics on the album, free for anyone to interpret. But there are of course some obvious ways to read it… For example, Embrace the moonlight is very much inspired by all the vampires we’ve seen on TV and movies latetly. Twilight, True Blood, Vampire Diaries and so on. For a vampire, light must be something very scary.

Reviews

First release ever, so there weren’t that many reviews on this one. No wonder, can’t imagine how much music that hits the magazines. But those who took their time to review it seems to have liked what they heard. Links and quotes here!

Trogna lÀsare och besöker har ju haft tillgÄng till de lÄtar vi spelat in med The Rockford Heroes ganska lÀnge. Men nu har vi ocksÄ bundlat ihop lÄtarna och satt ett namn pÄ samlingen och slÀppt det digitalt pÄ Spotify, iTunes, Amazon och knappt 500 andra liknande tjÀnster.

Hade detta varit ett traditionellt slĂ€pp sĂ„ hade det nog kallats för en “EP“. Ingen aning om vad folk kan om dylika begrepp nuförtiden. Men EP Ă€r i alla för mig starkt förknippat med vinyl, Ă€ven om det nog för all del slĂ€ppts EP:s pĂ„ CD ocksĂ„. Och numera digitalt, Ă€ven om jag absolut inte gör ansprĂ„k pĂ„ att vara först. Finns sĂ€kert nĂ„gra hundra tusen innan oss. Fast förmodligen bara ett fĂ„tal som lĂ„ter bĂ€ttre 😉

Och namnet dĂ„? Light scares. Det Ă€r, precis som texterna pĂ„ skivan, helt öppet för tolkning. Men det finns ju nĂ„gra uppenbara. Embrace the moonlight Ă€r ju till exempel klart inspirerad av de senaste Ă„rens TV och film med vampyr-tema. Twilight, True Blood, Vampire Diaries o s v. Är man vampyr sĂ„ mĂ„ste ju ljuset te sig som nĂ„got mycket skrĂ€mmande.

Recensioner

Första releasen överhuvudtaget, sÄ det var Àrligt talat inte sÄ mÄnga recensioner pÄ denna. Kanske inte sÄ konstigt, det gÄr nog inte ens att förestÀlla sig hur mycket promo-musik som kommer till tidningar och sÄnt. Men, de som recenserade verkade i alla fall mestadels ha gillat vad de hörde. LÀnkar och citat hittas hÀr!!

    […] Light scares kommer för övrigt snart ocksĂ„ dyka upp pĂ„ Spotify, fast i en nĂ„got omarbetat version. Vi vĂ„gar nog pĂ„stĂ„ att det i vissa fall Ă€r sĂ„pass omarbetat att det i vissa fall skulle kunna kallas “nya lĂ„tar”. Och detta i princip enbart genom att göra en snyggare produktion.
