(Photo by Mary Martley) The Portland-based project Pete International Airport, which revolves around Peter G. Holmström of The Dandy Warhols, has released anew album, “It Felt Like The End of the World” via Little Cloud Records. It’s the project’s third album, mixed by Jeremy Sherrer at Spooky Electric Co. (Modest Mouse, The Shins, The Dandy Warhols) with mastering by Dave Coley at Elysian Mastering.
“This record was mostly written and recorded during the pandemic so sonically and lyrically it can’t help but be influenced by what we all went through. There is a melancholy darkness as well as a peaceful beauty. The album title came from a “fairytale/poem” that is whispered at the end of ‘Sea Of Eyes’. It perfectly captures the hopeful/scary feeling of change that comes at the end of something,” says Peter G. Holmström.
Named after a song by Holmström’s other band, The Dandy Warhols, this project features numerous guests, including Rachel Goswell (Slowdive, Mojave 3), Alexander Hackett (Pang Attack), Dion Lunadon (A Place To Bury Strangers, The D4), and Cheap Trick’s Tom Petersson on 12-string bass. The material for this new album was recorded in Portland, LA, NY, UK and Montreal.
Pete International Airport also presents the video for “Next of Kin” featuring Lisa Elle of Dark Horses.
“It Felt Like The End of the World” is downloadable from all music platforms and is also available on CD and a deluxe double-album in a gatefold sleeve, pressed on transparent vinyl with an orange blob or on transparent vinyl with a purple blob.
Below is the video for the track “Brave New World”.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
