Fika Recordings: Allo Darlin’ and Fulhäst cassettes

Fika Recordings are very pleased to be able to release Allo Darlin’s new album, Europe, as a hand made cassette tape. Each of the 100 cassettes comes in a hand made sleeve, complete with a 16 page bound lyrics booklet, a recipe for Elizabeth’s mum’s Sacher Torte, a bag of Allo Darljeelin’ tea and a digital download of the album.

The album is also released on LP and CD in Europe by Fortuna Pop, and LP and CD in North America by Slumberland Records.
Available to listen from

Fulhäst is Nik Vestberg, formerly of Moustache Of Insanity. Fulhäst makes bleepy gameboy music. Fulhäst is not a Swedish hippopotamus.
This is Nik’s first venture since Moustache Of Insanity called it a day back at the start of the year. He writes songs on gameboy (and occasionally cheats by using a gameboy emulator), accompanying himself on a telephone microphone and fuzzy guitar. There’s a definite continuation of MOI themes with this new EP, and Down The Deuce is definitely back to the grindhouse, namechecking Christina Lindberg and taking you back to 1970s horror in New York…
This release comes as a limited run of 100 cassettes. Each sleeve is painstakingly hand cut, folded and assembled by Fika/Fulhäst, complete with individual gameboy screens and felt gameboy buttons.
