Villebråd is four swedish gentlemen trying to play rock music. Their first full-length album "Alla är här utom jag" was released in Ferbruary 2007 through Transubstans records. This is what some friendly people said about that recording:
"A crazy album is this – a really nice crazy one! It’s experimental, manifold inspired, emotional, sometimes laid-back, then again ambitious - after all it’s extravagant, yet it’s quite easy to get along with (...) Could it become cheesier if I tell you that this is music for the sunshine in your heart?"
- SOUNDS UNDER THE SURFACE
"a really curious synthesis of classic Art-Rock and New Wave, the innovativeness of the style being beyond question..."
"WOW is all I have to say about the latest band from the Transubstans Record label called Villebrad. On their debut, ’Alla ar har utom jag ’ they combine modern progressive rock with late 70’s art rock and early 80’s new wave into something very fresh sounding. Just imagine the sound as a mixture of such bands as Ultravox, Tears For Fears and Japan with Discipline-era King Crimson and modern bands such as Anekdoten, Blackfield, Anathema, Sigur Ros and Radiohead. This is only the foundation of what the band sounds like (...) Open-minded listeners will rejoice and need to hear this album!"
"Circulating its sounds and musical landscapes in the same places with bands like RADIOHEAD, MUSE etc they create small melodic musical pieces, full of lyrical overtones and melody (...) What you would get as a result, listening to this album, is the euphoria from an album built to grow, based on the song structure and the exploitation of harmony and musicians talent."
"Another highly interesting release from the Transubstans record label, Sweden’s Villebrad offer up a modern progressive rock sound mixed with 80’s new wave. Sound unusual? It is and frankly I find this disc to be one of the most enjoyable new progressive releases I have heard it quite a while (...) Alla ar har utom jag is definitely out of the ordinary and receives my highest recommendation!"
"Retrodoftade prog. Men liksom allt annat på ”Alla Är Här Utom Jag”, andas det spelglädje och en dos allmän fräschör. Det är progressiv musik som faktiskt lyckas flirta med 2000-talet (...) Utan att ge avkall på sina influenser, sin kreativitet eller syn på god musik lyckas Villebråd pressa ljudbilden till max. Det låter riktigt bra och desto fler element som blandas in, falsettsång, märkliga syntljud etcetera, desto bättre blir det."
"Eccentric, slightly crazed (in the nicest, creative sense), and yet inspired all the same. Therein lies the key to its appeal. It will intrigue, compel, surprise, and defy most of any preconceived musical logic."
