By 1997, Crosby, Stills & Nash were without a label thanks to a drastic artistic slump, but they began working on a new album, paying for studio time out of their own pockets. Neil Young expressed interest in the tapes, and suddenly, a new CSNY album was in the works. Even though Young's continual tinkering pushed its release back by months, Looking Forward still feels rushed and half-finished. It's immediately apparent that the record began as a self-financed project; it sounds weirdly muted, as if all the levels weren't set accurately; similarly, it's possible to hear sometimes awkward overdubs added to basically completed tracks. While they may have named the album Looking Forward, CSNY are alternately nostalgic and haunted by the past, which colors their attempts to look toward the future.
The Swedish sleaze/punk influenced metal outfit known as SISTER, who hail from Stockholm, Sweden, have been working hard during the last ten years earning the reputation of being one of the best live acts out there. SISTER is now back with their new record ‘Stand Up, Forward, March!’, their best and most direct approach yet! The album was recorded in the city of rock n’ roll -Upplands Väsby, Sweden – by SISTER and producer Jona Tee of H.E.A.T., mixed by Tobias Lindell (Avatar, Crash Diet, Mustasch, Europe, Hardcore Superstar etc.) and mastered by Christian Schneider at Scandinavian Mastering.
