Video: Dwayne Sodahberk. You Got Got.

The Swedish artist Dwayne Sodahberk is generally overlooked by the shoegaze/dream pop scene, possibly because he normally releases his records on TigerBeat6 (an awesome record label run by Kid606, but that is mostly well-known for it's electro noise and glitch releases). Sodahberk definitely has his full-on glitch and electro moments, but albums like Cut Open (from which this track is taken), released in 2006, and 2009's Interdikt, are both superior examples of dreamy, dark, glitch-tinged shoegaze. I was especially impressed with Interdikt; I've never heard anything quite like it. I highly recommend it.

When The Sun Hits hopes to interview Mr. Sodahberk in the near future, so be on the look out for that. In the meantime, check out his back catalog!
