Label: Nailboard Records / Flak'n'Roll Records
Notes: Nearly three years have passed since the release of “Vere kutse kohustab”, but Loits have not left their guns rusting in the ditch. On Estonian Flag Day, June 4th, the long-awaited “Must album” (“Black album”), encompassing nine songs of unheard-of brilliance. The record is not unlike a picture album left behind by the grand-grandparents, documenting not only photographs, but also all the joy expereiced, as well as the tragedy of one small nation. “Must album” does not glorify the love for the fatherland or the soldier’s valour, not the beauty of life or the pain of grief, although the latter one acts like the cord that twines the songs together. The new Loits album is a gift of remembrance to those departed, serving also as a reminder to all that injustice never dies.
The limited edition of “Must album” is a true bag of surprises to all friends of Loits. In addition the actual album, the neat cardboard package contains a cool sticker as well as six commemoratory cards. The main thing, though, is the bonus EP “Mustad laulud” (“Black songs”), containing four tunes that are of somewhat different cast, yet entirely delicious nevertheless. And as if this was not enough, it also includes a photo album, a newsreel movie about the “Must album” record and a “Monologue” balancing the overall tonality of the album, all launchable on a PC. Together with Loits you are strong!
