De Amsterdamse band Labasheeda heeft met Blueprints een werkelijk geweldig album afgeleverd, dat stekelige rocksongs combineert met nogal uiteenlopende invloeden, avontuurlijke klanken en gedreven zang
Labasheeda draait inmiddels al een tijdje mee, maar met het onlangs verschenen Blueprints kan de band uit Amsterdam wel eens flinke stappen gaan zetten.
