Vår has always felt like an outlet for Iceage's Elias Rønnenfelt to create without definition. First there was the raw, anarchic post-punk of their At War For Youth EP, then the stylistic jumble sale of No One Dances Quite Like My Brothers. “First Purchase” was recorded for Rosehip, Scallop, Dancer, a new compilation of independent Danish musicians, and it hints at yet another transition. It comes in echoing translucent like a garage track that's shed its rhythmic skin and is stuck repeating the same sad song like a recurring dream.

Rosehip, Scallop, Dancer is out now via Avant Records! I'm not excited, that exclamation point is part of their name.
