So last week I attended the Gaslight show where Twopointeight and Against Me! were supporting acts.

I spoke to the singer of Twopointeight (which, if you haven't, is a band you need to familiarize yourself with) at their merch table and he apparently has a sideproject/solo venture, Fredrik Georg Eriksson & The powers that be.
I bought his vinyl, Volume, and as I'm listening to it now I keep catching myself thinking how similar the soundscape is to The Horrible Crowes. The gritty atmosphere, the music, the heartfelt and shrieking vocals, basically everything.

There's his website, and the entire album is out on Spotify too. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

Thanks for the heads up. I like this a lot better than his work with twopointeight. I thought the band was good but that the vocals were "meh" at best. His voice works a lot better in this Tom Waits-lite kind of project.

Nice find! I'm listening to 'Volume' now and really liking it. I've heard of Twopointeight but never listened so I'll be checking them out next.

Thank you sir!

What a great discovery, very Tom Waits-esque... And what a voice! "Love in reverse" is a killer.

Give yourself a treat and listen to this album!

I looked up a live video and was really impressed how strong he was as a live vocalist. Cool hollering-type voice.
