"I'm completely sold" (8/10) -

"It just continues to grow" (8/10) - Ö

Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers), on working on "Gauss":
"I remember the day I discovered little chili peppers growing in my yard. The peppers looked like little red gum balls, so I ate one and it made me cry. Then I rubbed my eyes, and the chili was in my eyes. Just when it couldn't get worse, I went to pee and got it on my wiener. I still like chili peppers."

"Gauss" consists of 40 minutes of continuous music. It starts and ends with the sound of the earth’s magnetic field and in between it presents a journey in sound. The album was recorded during 2012 in Light Screamer's own studio. The album is produced by Light Screamer and mastered by Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers) at Preacher Mon.

"I can't figure out how music works these days, but if this album had come out in the 80's when I was collecting records, and I, of course, didn't know who the hell [Light Screamer] were, I'm pretty sure I would still have this record in my collection." -Brett Bradford (Scratch Acid)

Formed in 2011 by Ida Andersson-Norrie, Jens Hellman, Peter Lindström and Tobias Eriksson. Light Screamer made their live debut at the Live at Heart festival in Örebro the same year and has been playing at the festival every year since. In March 2013 Light Screamer played three highly acclaimed shows during the SXSW festival in Austin, TX which resulted in a record deal with local indie label Australian Cattle God Records. This year saw Light Screamer return to Austin for two shows, one of which was said to be the best show at SXSW.

"Yeah, go see them if you can, they are freakin' awesome live!" -Kevin Triplett (Director of the music documentary "Blaze Foley: Duct Tape Messiah")

"a bunch of fucking Scanners" -Chad Holt (Whoopsy Magazine)
