If you’re yet to experience the legendary Pias Fraus, there’s never been a better time. The Estonian dream pop/shoegaze band have announced the most comprehensive release of their catalogue to date. All of their otherworldly, melodic awesomeness is now available on vinyl (many for the first time). Seksound (together with Clairecords on several releases) have pressed the ‘Mooie Island’ EP (2004), ‘Wonder What It’s Like’ (2001), ‘In Solarium’ (2002), ‘After Summer’ (2008), and ‘Nature Heart Software’ (2006); these are some of the greatest dream pop records of the noughties.

For the uninitiated, the band was formed in 1998 by six art students (Rein Fuks, Reijo Tagapere, Tõnis Kenkmaa, Joosep Volk, Kristel Loide and Kärt Ojavee). Together they released their debut LP ‘Wonder What It’s Like’ in 2001. Along the way they’ve worked with Ulrich Schnauss and Teenage Fanclub’s Norman Blake, and partnered with Clairecords (USA), Vinyl Junkie (Japan) and Shelflife Records (USA) for the ‘Silmi Island’ compilation. Pia Fraus are a must for fans of Stereolab, The Pastels, Broadcast or The Radio Dept. Pick up the limited pressings from Tone Vendor (USA), Darla (USA), Monorail Music (EU/Scotland), or directly from Seksound.
