Release Date 01/19/2018
Punk Slime Recordings are proud to present ShitKid and This Is It, which will be arriving on January 19 on limited edition vinyl and digitally. ShitKid is the project of Swedish artist Åsa Söderqvist, and This Is It is the follow-up to her acclaimed debut LP Fish which arrived earlier this year to praise from the likes of NPR, Noisey, i-D, The FADER, Bandcamp and many more.
ShitKid first appeared in the spring of 2016 with a self-titled debut EP and quickly rose to prominence as one of the most exciting new acts out of Scandinavia, with a unique DIY-edge and an unwillingness to conform to what an artist is supposed to be she’s been hailed as an anti-pop star and an antidote to slick radio pop. After the success of the debut album and multiple tours around Europe, and slots at festivals like Roskilde, Way Out West, The Great Escape, ShitKid is now back with new music – her fourth collection of tracks in under two years.
This Is It is ShitKid’s strongest collection of tracks to date, while showcasing both a broader sound and a growth in songwriting, it retains the direct lo-fi qualities of her early recordings. This Is It is performed and produced by Åsa herself and recorded on her own in her bedroom, her car and her rehearsal space, and later mixed and mastered by Luke Reilly.
