Artist: ALGARNAS TRADGARD
Title: Framtiden är ett svävande skepp, förankrat i forntiden
Format: Double LP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $45.00
2016 re-press. "Subliminal Sounds presents a vinyl reissue of Älgarnas Trädgårds 1972 debut album Framtiden är ett svävande skepp, förankrat i forntiden, a rare and totally flipped-out psychedelic underground space rock masterpiece from Sweden. The band name translates to "The Garden of the Elks" and the album title to "The Future Is a Hovering Ship, Anchored in the Past." A long, long time ago, long before our time, there was high-standing civilization on earth. It was then that the elks lived. In their garden was a huge generator of pink glass that radiated the four elements. It was a sort of primal force for everything that one might call God. These elks eventually learned to master the matter and then went into the astral transcendental plane. Since then nobody has seen them... This reissue is a facsimile deluxe re-release from the master tapes. Includes additional LP with previously unreleased recordings from the same time period. Features never before seen photos and liner notes by the band." - Subliminal Sounds.

Artist: BABY GRANDMOTHERS
Title: Baby Grandmothers
Format: CD
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
Repressed. "Baby Grandmothers were a short-lived Swedish band, but one of the most prolific and unique psychedelic, modal, experimental power-trios to emerge out of the Scandinavian psychedelic underground scene in 1967. Although hailing from Stockholm, Sweden they only released a single in Finland, which has since become one of the most sought-after pieces of vinyl from the era. Baby Grandmothers were formed out of the legendary R&B/beat band T-Boones in the summer of 1967. T-Boones are probably best known for their "At The Club/King Of The Orient" single which is one of the best, and most collectable of the Swedish garage beat era. Guitar-wiz Kenny Håkansson joined the band in 1965 and with the group down to a trio they drifted into the psychedelic sounds of the time and in August 1967 released the single "I Want You," which definitely was the first hard-rock recording ever made in Sweden. The band was then re-christened Baby Grandmothers by the co-founder of the newly opened psychedelic club Filips, for which he needed a house-band. Filips was the legendary breeding ground for bands such as Hansson & Karlsson, Pärson Sound, as well as orgiastic all-night jams with foreign luminaries such as Jimi Hendrix and the Mothers of Invention. Baby Grandmothers also supported Jimi Hendrix on his Swedish tour in 1968 and then turned into Mecki Mark Men, who became the first Swedish rock band to tour the U.S. Founding member Kenny Håkansson went on to form the highly influential Kebnekajse, who created the Swedish electric psych-folk sound. This unique collection presents live recordings made at Filips, their impossibly rare single and a rare live recording made in Finland. Painstakingly collected and researched by Dungens guitarist Reine Fiske. 16-page booklet included." - Subliminal Sounds.

Artist: BACKDOOR MEN, THE
Title: Sodra Esplanaden #4
Format: CD
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $8.00
"New lower pricing. Available for the first time since its release twenty years ago, The Backdoor Men were ultimate mid-1980s jangly garage rock/pop/folk from Sweden. Decades before bands like the Hives, Sweden was already well known for its amazing modern beat-psych through compatriot and influential bands such as the Creeps, Crimson Shadows, The Stomachmouths and of course the sharpest of them all; the Backdoor Men. The mighty Backdoor Men originally started up as the mod-band Pow in 1982 but when the amazing vocalist Robert Jelinek, who was also in the Creeps, joined forces with Hans Ingemansson (guitar & vocals), Stefan Nilsson (bass), and Ismail Samie (drums), they changed their name to The Backdoor Men, playing covers of the Chocolate Watch Band, Music Machine and Standells. The rest is garage rock history. For the first time you can hear all of their recordings and read their exciting story. This album contains lots of unreleased bonus tracks, a groovy booklet with extensive liner notes giving an uncensored, first-hand peak as to what really happened, plus lots of photos. Its all here." - Subliminal Sounds.

Title: 4
Format: LP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $27.00
2016 re-press. "This is the clear-vinyl Swedish edition of Dungens fourth studio album (released on CD in the U.S. via Kemado; no longer in print on vinyl from Kemado however), extending the acclaimed Swedish outfits sound past psychedelia into something far more rare. Moving beyond mere stylistic concerns, 4 finds Gustav Ejstes focus on the extremes of Dungens sound separating into two entities. Blazing, raw guitar workouts have their own time and place, but now, so do stirringly orchestrated, jazz-cooled compositions with cinematic undertones. Bandleader Gustav Ejstes has made many allusions to his creative process as it likens to that of a hip-hop producer. On 4, that process is more evident than ever, both in the feel of each piece, and in the sense of intuition and control within the members of the group. New drummer Johan Holmegard joins guitarist Reine Fiske and bassist Mattias Gustavsson, while Ejstes steps away from guitar for the entire album, focusing on the piano as his lead instrument. Together, they have honed a classic and seamless sound, constructed with lavish studio flourishes and moving, narrative arrangements, and yet able to toughen up to tear veins of fierce blues-psych instrumentals up from the surface. The ten tracks on 4 comprise Dungens most concentrated effort to date, beats surging forth and atmospheres changing as their sound continues to evolve. Every song here runs under five minutes, pushing the group to introduce confident melodies and arresting ambiance in tighter frameworks. Gauging from the results, this challenge has done them well. Included in this set are live favorite "Mina Damer Och Fasaner," excerpts from a wild psychedelic jam session entitled "Samtidigt," and a storming, Northern Soul-influenced instrumental entitled "Fredag." These stand tall with some of the most fully-realized moments of Dungens career; percolating prog-pop groover "Det Tar Tid" and eloquent opener "Satt At Se." With a penchant for lush pop portraits, and laced with orange sunshine guitar flash, 4 turns a page in Dungens sound and story." - Subliminal Sounds.

Country: Sweden
Price: $74.00
"2015 repress. Subliminal Sounds finally presents the complete legendary Ta Det Lugnt album as a limited deluxe box-set with 2 LPs, a bonus 12" EP Tyst Minut and a full-sized poster. The album is presented here for the first time with the correct vinyl mastering. The original, and previously only available 2004 vinyl LP pressing, was incorrectly manufactured from digital master instead of analog, had several defects and didnt sound at all as intended. We have now gone back to the original vinyl master and made a correct and superior vinyl pressing so you can hear the analog sound as originally intended. The most astounding 2004 breakthrough album from Swedens Dungen; a modern classic psychedelic album. The title translates roughly into English as "Take It Easy" which kind of perfectly sums up Dungens sound. Its immediate and you want to get involved, but theres also such a laid-back, hippy vibe to the whole thing. Ta Det Lugnt is a beautiful musical trip out into the Swedish forests and back again." - Subliminal Sounds.

Country: Sweden
Price: $24.00
"LP version in deluxe silver foil sleeve. Limited edition of 499. Includes poster. The long-awaited debut album from Hashish. Top-class psychedelia, taking the genre to a new level with a sophisticated approach to Afro-funk grooves accompanied by dreamy, playful melodies that range through a spectrum of Scandinavian occult psychedelia, minimal synth, surreal electronic soul disco, and rare groove. Some have described Hashish as a project that picks up what Goat started. Welcome to tomorrow. The sounds transport the listener into a forgotten world where the future looks different from what it became. On his soft, subtle island capped with clouds of cool fire, Pan weaves his teachings with the wind and the sun, raining sacred melodies on the hearts and minds of humanity and bestowing desperate loves and yearnings with songs of sainthood and madness. Transient temples of the flesh, laughing at death, clothe our lives in fire. On rippling altars of skin we sensual magicians worship bright burning desire. Upon release the album sky rocketed straight into #1 on the official Swedish vinyl chart." - Subliminal Sounds.

Title: Pagan Rites
Format: LP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $29.00
"From the mystical realms of a secluded ancient island, rising from the icy spray of the forbidden northern waters, comes the haunting, savage beat of a mysterious and primitive ritual. In this forgotten place, awash with wonder and enigma, echoing with the booming of sharkskin drums and bone rattles, the rock speaks with the voice of the gods. Weaving strange and terrifying tales, and tales of beauty and joy, Pagan Rites is a breathtakingly exotic tone-poem that will make any Tiki bar come alive.Ìxtahuele is a Swedish exotica band playing in the acoustic, original style of Martin Denny and Arthur Lyman. They come from Gothenburg; a damp, foggy harbor town that, ever since its founding in the early 17th century, has been an international melting pot associated with exotic, faraway destinations ever since the days of the East India Trading Companies. Having grown up with the exciting tales of the sailors and the luscious smells and flavors of the markets, an interest in the romantic and exotic is an integral part of life for the group. Coming from a variety of musical backgrounds, Ìxtahuele strive to combine an immersive, research-like approach with their collective experience in jazz, pop, surf, classical, Latin and world music to create authentic, exciting, and innovative world-class exotica. A large part of their inspiration and style cues come from the old greats -- they are also heavily influenced by classical works, Latin & jazz tunes, indigenous melodies from different regions -- in short, the same kind of influences that inspired the originators of the genre. The aim of the group is to provide the perfect soundtrack to bring your minds eye on a time-traveling, round-the-world trip; taking you to faraway exotic islands, lost lands, and ancient cities -- bringing back the Ottoman Empire, Port Royal, or even the mythical continent of Mu. Ìxtahuele try to push the limits of where they can take you while still staying true to the genre; because after all, the true armchair traveler cant make the Hawaiian Village the destination for every trip, but must also go to the Amazon, Micronesia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and Indochina." - Subliminal Sounds.

Artist: JAY, ABNER
Title: One Man Band
Format: CD
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
Repressed. "The ultimate one-man-band wild man from the 1960s of whom some have said the southern Hasil Haze Adkins. Anyways Abner Jay was the most unusual music talent the world has ever seen and a true southerner. His original LPs are now sought after and very rare making this CD reissue very welcome. Abner played the long-necked, plucked string instrument we nowadays call the banjo. Its possible antecedents have existed in many forms and under many names. The commercially-manufactured, standardized form has emerged from vernacular instruments, including what 18th-century European travellers to the West Indian colonies reported as strum-strums: long, flat-necked, skin-covered gourd bodies strung with catgut, resorted to by plantation slaves for intimate diversion as well as larger occasions of social excitement arousal. Coming from whatever precursors, the banjo occupied an important place in late-19th century black and white minstrelsy and vaudeville. There is a long line of social and musical experience which constitutes Jays tradition: blacks domestic entertainment inspiring white imitations; in turn stimulating composed, sheet-music idioms for middle-class and professional performance, which then animated younger generations of black musicians. For forty two years Jay worked as a unique one man band where he played banjo, guitar, drums, harmonica, and sang at the same time. Abner Jay was the first of the original black musicians and played the only electric six string banjo youll ever hear. Jay was a native of Fitzgerald, Georgia and was once a travelling performer with the Silas Green Show, one of the last multifaceted road shows on record. Tastes and tolerances of what constitutes acceptable public entertainment are always changing and Jay was part of making idioms which may not in fact have received too much exposure in the daily pressure to captivate audiences by extrovert mannerisms. Singing song on subjects ranging from LSD to whats six inches long and has two nuts on the end -- you got to hear it to believe it. A true glimpse at some real Americana compiling the best tracks from Abners original LPs." -Subliminal Sounds.

Title: Idioten
Format: LP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $27.00
"Limited edition of 500 copies. Kebnekajse takes folk rock to new heights on Idioten. Forty years after their debut, the Swedish 70s folk rock pioneers have gathered no moss. A short biography for new listeners: During the 1970s, Kebnekajse was known as Swedens highest band, pioneering and leading the Swedish instrumental psych/progressive groups. They electrified folk music and made six albums from their inception in 1971 to 1978, after which they split up. Kebnekajse reunited during the summer of 2001 and in the early spring of 2009, they released their critically-acclaimed comeback album Kebnekajse (SUBL 026CD/LP), filled with pure Swedish folk songs. Two years later, and proven by countless tours, they now present what is perhaps their strongest recording ever. On this album, Kebnekajse widens views and lets the folk music tone find new forms, free from any tightly-held reins. As the band themselves explain: "We wanted to give the folk music new feet. From the vast canon of ancient Swedish folk songs we wanted to highlight songs that stand out, rare songs that leave room for improvisation and debauchery in the spirit of the psychedelic 70s." With these resolutions, the band got into the studio (the same one used for recording Dungen) for three sessions of four days each, from May to September. The result was 10 new tracks. This is unlimited music where intricate melodies and distinctive rhythms take unexpected turns -- electrical and eclectic while unified in a dynamic drive. Kebnekajse have deepened their interplay in their last years of touring. On the initial track "Barfota" (trans. "Barefoot") the electric guitar and violin weaves melody over pulsating drums, percussion and double basses -- heavy and soft at the same time. "Fäbodpslam" (trans. "Mountain Shack Psalm") breathes beautiful melancholy before the great polska "From-Olle" (trans. "Pious-Olle") whips up a furious pace. "Hans & Greta" is tight like a music box in its melody interplay while "Senpolska" (trans. "Late Polska") from Hälsingland becomes a drawn-out, distorted drone piece ("like a grunt from the deepest of halls of the mountain king"). The musicians also break up the action with jam trips and let loose the love of their musical roots. The title track "Idioten" (trans. "The Fool") madly mixes a Hälsingland polska with hard progressive rock. "Stockholmpolka" has a snorting, country feel mixed with dream-like Afro-funk psych and an Alpine feel. The closing Norwegian "walking tune" "Sangenuten" (trans. "The Song Without") is connected with a long tail of psychedelia. With Idioten, Kebnekajse lifts Swedish folk rock to new heights and new psychedelic overtones." -Subliminal Sounds

First-ever vinyl reissue of one of the most sought-after and beautiful psych rock/progressive/pre-jazz rock instrumental albums ever recorded in Sweden.

Artist: LIFE ON EARTH!
Title: A Space Water Loop
Format: CD
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $8.00
"New lower pricing. This is the second full-length release by Life On Earth!, the follow-up to the acclaimed 2007 debut Look!! There is Life On Earth!. The debut was like a journey past green summer hills and skipping lambs; a celebration of imperishable eternal beauty and a romantic observation of the world around us. Now, the telescope is turned inside-out. The focus is on the captain of the project, Dungens Mattias Gustavsson, and the gorgeous, ornate world of his own invention. Confusion and contradiction are found in the front stalls, visions of ecstasy next to battles with demons and defunct relationships. The drums are given more space, and a Hammond organ has found its way along the layered vocals and languorous string arrangements. But even though the sound has grown both harder and bigger, the album is a natural follow-up with equal parts sound experimentation, folk and classic psychedelic pop, based around acoustic guitar. Opening track "Listen" starts it all off with a flowery baroque flute intro, and then just unfolds and unfolds ever outward into stratospheric pop vocal harmonies, woozy effects, reverbed organs, backwards masking, all burning up at the end with some seriously druggy, acid-fried psychedelic guitar riffage. And thats just to start. Other members of Life On Earth! include members of The Works Martin Fogelström, Alexis Benson, and Johan Holmegard (also of Dungen) and Erik Lundin, plus at least 10 more guests. As with the debut, the cover paintings and collages were made by New York artists and Lights members Sophia Knapp and Wizard Smoke. The album derives its title from Knapps collage A Space Water Loop." - Subliminal Sounds.

"OFFICIAL RSD 2017 release. Subliminal Sounds present an updated reissue of a sought after psychedelic rarity, Madrigals self-titled album, originally released in 1971. Finally, the mysteries can be dispelled and the true and amazing history of this unique record can come to light. The great, lost grail of the NYC freak underground! Trading hands for $3-4000 on the rare occasions it is offered, Madrigal has grown into a legend among fans of psychedelic drone music. Heres what the book Acid Archives (2006) has to say: "... A rather amazing do-it-yourself descent into the murkiest depths of the early 1970s underground. Its two guys sitting in what sounds like a boiler room, equipped with a drum machine, an electric guitar & bass and some oscillators, hot-wiring themselves into the lysergic flow of the now. The music drones and cavorts while incomprehensible screams and dialogue lurk in the background, as heard through a locked door. The atmosphere is as thick as in a nightmare..." But Madrigals strongest achievement may be the seamless shift from the harrowing visions of machinery and faceless suffering on side one into a string of dark, haunting folk-rock numbers on side two, a transition as natural as if these were simply the two sides of the same unclassifiable coin. Pioneering at the time and still unique today, vague parallels could be made to Suicide, The Patron Saints and Velvet Undergrounds third LP (1969), but first and last, Madrigal can only be understood on its own. Presented here, remastered for superior sound and, for the first time, with the original artwork; Comes with a deluxe 12-page booklet with an in-depth interview with the creator of the album, and lots of never before seen photographs; Limited edition of 600." - Subliminal Sounds.

Title: Vanya
Format: CD
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $8.00
"New lower pricing. Mylla came into fruition at the now-legendary illicit club/speakeasy BZ in a Stockholm cellar, and this is their debut album, Vanya. Mylla means "mold/earth" in Swedish, and they are the ultimate psychedelic party band for the loosely-knit family of musicians centered around the Subliminal Sounds label (like Dungen, The Works, Life On Earth! and S.T. Mikael and many other Swedish psychsters). This album was recorded in a limestone cottage on a secluded island far out in the Baltic Sea, known by sailors for centuries as the "White Hawaii." Faroe Island has been closed to all foreigners up until a few years ago, as it contains several top-secret army bases. The music is steeped in the Swedish 70s prog tradition, and the creation of this album was as much a dance-party as a recording session. This is a feeling that permeates the whole record and it is this feeling that is Mylla. Like Dungen, the band sings in Swedish but unlike Dungen, the Mylla experience might only be for the natives, but at least its no longer forbidden for anyone to try it out. Gustav Ejstes from Dungen turns up as a guest with his fiddle, as well as the word artist, Lasse Fabel. Think summertime warmth, beer jams, sweaty dancefloors." - Subliminal Sounds.

Ebbot Lundberg and Per Svensson had started their careers as artists at the legendary Radium 226.05 in Gothenburg during the swinging 1980s. Per was releasing sound art and poetry and Ebbot was the lead singer of Union Carbide Productions at that time. During the following decades, both guys have been developing their art; Per continuing on as a solo artist and Ebbot as the well-known lead singer of TSOOL -- The Soundtrack Of Our Lives. Now the time has finally come for them to join forces in the New Alchemy. The band is made complete with an all-star cast of Mats Gustafsson (highly-renowned musician with Sonic Youth and myriads of other bands) and Patrik Caganis (Union Carbide Productions). "Weve been living parallel lives for a while and sometimes weve bumped into each other during the last decades. And now finally we have decided to collaborate and put our ideas, our density and our gravity together." --Ebbot Lundberg; "It feels like a groovy alchemic trip. The songs are created in the eggs of the cosmic serpent that uncoils into the year of the snake." --Per Svensson; The concept of the New Alchemy is to mix and deliver new psychedelia. This will be done with the constellation of cunning artists/musicians followed by more psychedelic live alchemy, a worldwide release and live shows. The new album is being released by Stefan Kérys wayward music company Subliminal Sounds, that has worked with making Swedish psychedelia a universal concern. Sessions were executed at Northern Europes largest megalithic monument; Ales Stones (Ale Stenar) at Kåseberga in the South of Sweden and at the new secret space observatory at Råö situated by the sea on the Swedish west coast south, amongst other places and studios."- Subliminal Sounds.

"Repressed.

" - FE. "After years of research were proud to present the nucleus of the Swedish 1960s-70s underground psych rock scene: the legendary Pärson Sound. This 2-CD set presents the most remarkable Swedish underground band, known in a later incarnation and continuation as International Harvester and Träd, Gräs och Stenar (Trees, Grass and Stones), and features both intricate studio recordings and orgiastic live performances. Pärson Sound never released any records in their time and that is why a very few have heard about them at all. The recordings date from 1967/68 while the band explored unknown musical territory as well as inner- and outer space. In 1968 they were invited by Andy Warhol to play at the opening of his exhibition: Screens, Films, Boxes, Clouds and a Book, at the museum of Modern Art in Stockholm and also opened for the Doors. Influenced by the musical concepts of Terry Riley, Pärson Sound worked at discovering and perfecting their own unique approach towards the mixing of rock and minimalism. They created some of the most remarkable psych- trance-drone-pre-noise music-rock sounds ever recorded. Pärson Sounds music described contexts, interplay and organic growth and shaped a conception of the world -- an opposite of fragmentation, individual achievements and intellectual construction. This world was to be perceived as one body, a whole of inviolable parts. The minimalist repetition with slight changes gives associations of a slow growth, of cyclic process, of breathing, pulse, life, movement and machines. The persistent repetition gives the listener an opportunity to discover the sounds, to meditate, to go into the music, join the same journey. Many times one can discover a relationship with music of other cultures. In comparison the music of the Western world can feel cursory, unreliable -- as a fear of entering deep into feeling. Pärson Sounds compositions often consist of harsh structures -- a rhythm pattern with ostinato bass, a melodic figure -- which forms a base for improvisation. Other songs have a more thoroughly elaborated structure that still leaves room for variation. The moment, the audience, the location formed their music. Their key phrase was We, Here and Now! With time, the music came to have an increasing religious or shamanistic streak -- with a raised demand of intensity, presence and warmth -- a striving for euphoria and ecstasy. The bands psychedelic approach towards music is so fresh and vital that it transcends time. Listen to it now! A 2xCD with an informative booklet in English and lots of photos." - Subliminal Sounds.

The early works by Bo Anders Persson presented on this record were written between 1965 and 1967, before he started the experimental rock band Pärson Sound. All but one track is previously-unreleased. What is the origin of this strange, un-place-able music? What is its place in history, in the unfolding of important conceptual ideas, turning musical modernism into something wider, more mysterious and blurred? From where comes the lightness of touch, and how does the transient nature of the sounds correspond to the sense of mourning hidden within the music? What makes the music so exciting and loaded is the feeling of change, both in the actual performances and in the atmosphere of the rooms where the pieces are played. The sounds move freely within the minimal, repetitive structures. There are spaces for breathing and dreaming, turning inside and outside, and a sense of being in between positions.

"This brand new and heavily mind-bending album is the second volume in a suite of two separate albums marking the return of the mysterious and legendary Swedish psychedelic multi-instrumentalist S.T. Mikael. Mikael spearheaded the DIY psychedelic rock/folk movement of the late 1980s/mid-90s, and he returned in early 2008, after an 11 year silence, to record some music with some friends for Subliminal Sounds. In Harmony is the natural conclusion to the recordings S.T. Mikael made with Dungens Fredrik Bjorling and Reine Fiske, which were introduced with the album Mind of Fire. Signaled from the outset with the opening track "Mother Is Calling," In Harmony is dedicated to our arch mother, Nature, and all the treasures and mysteries it contains. On his 15-minute epos, "Higher," Mikael performs as a one-man-band, offering insight into the blissful happiness he has received from that which springs from -- and grows -- in nature. As our world continues to change faster than ever, S.T. Mikaels melodic folk-rock and spiritual psychedelia tells us of the importance of partaking in the psychedelic communion and listening to each other -- before its too late. Get ready for more visions of winged creatures galloping across a thunderous and cloud-swirled sky and another glimpse into your inner minds eye.

"Limited edition of 500 copies. Reissue of rare and very special U.S. 70s LP. Includes an insert with a previously untold band history and interviews by Patrick Lundborg (author of The Acid Archives and Psychedelia). Saturn is 1970s "Rhinestone Rock," featuring an expressive disco-influenced female vocalist, invoking powerful visions of 70s couples under mirrored balls in downtown velvet sofa nightclubs decorated with huge day-glow zodiac wall-paintings. A heavy mystic sideshow vibe with undertones of the occult and science fiction. On a superficial mainstream level, the mid-1970s may appear as one of the music scenes less exciting eras, dominated as it was by industry-approved repetition and tired formulas. On the regional and local levels however, the situation was different and more exciting. Live music still dominated in clubs, bars and lounges, and thousands of working bands made a living playing gigs on their regional circuits. The traditional model of mimicking recent top 40 hits had given way to a more complex challenge for club bands, which were now expected to handle a melting pot of sounds that emerged out of the creative explosion of the late 60s. One of the more intriguing works to emerge from this next-step progression came from a Colorado-based outfit called Saturn, who released a self-titled album in 1978 containing only self-penned material. This album was intended more as a showcase for Saturns talents than a genuine commercial release, but within its grooves dwells several outstanding numbers with a rare, magical atmosphere. Despite their genre-transcending originality, Saturns demo album hardly made a blip on the radar and remains very rare today, with only a few copies known among collectors." -Subliminal Sounds.

Wicked, toxic and manic rock, psychotic vocals, gnarly guitars, cavernous bass and drums beat to a pulp. A quick glare at the cover and youre savvy on what its about. "The idea is probably to create rotten hard rock with a drive and without too many frills. Maybe you can compare us with a Z-grade flick: bad... but still damn good in a strange way." Skogen Brinner consists of four young reprobate souls; Jesper Aronsson (vocals), David Forsberg (guitar), Joel Carnstam (bass), Jonathan Eriksson (drums), who, despite their situation, are now trying to break the negative spiral of self-destruction with sound therapy. They have played, even if the result sometimes becomes terrible. They have played with each other and with their bodies, with toxins and with their strength. They have played with the values which society and parents slipped on them." -Subliminal Sounds.

Price: $32.00
"Gatefold 2LP version with full-color glossy printed innersleeves, limited to 1000 copies. Just in time for Träd Gräs och Stenars ("Trees Grass and Stones") 40-year anniversary, the Swedish psychedelic trance-rock pioneers release a new album, Homeless Cats. The first one in 7 years, and the seventh since they began in 1969. Eleven boundless tracks with organic music for open minds. Back in 1967, the guitarist BoAnders Persson had already started his Terry Riley-inspired underground band Pärson Sound with the bass player Torbjorn Abelli and drummer Thomas Mera Gartz, amongst others. They evolved into International Harvester, then Harvester, finally striking root as Träd Gräs och Stenar. In 1970, they arranged, and performed at, the legendary Swedish Gardes-Festivals that pioneered the Swedish alternative music movement. Today, Träd Gräs och Stenar create their own contemporary music, even if they have been compared to Krautrockers like Can and Faust, internationally. Rhythmic, and heart-pounding for sure -- but at the same time, peculiarly Swedish, with their roots in the mold and soil, and with branches that reach high up into the clear air. Homeless Cats was recorded by the band themselves during the period between 2002-2007, mostly while jamming in the bands rehearsal house and studio in Viksund, Sweden, but also live at gigs. During this period, they also toured Europe, USA, Russia and Japan. In the meaty album booklet, they give us a couple of personal travelogues. Träd Gräs och Stenar have evolved a clear and mature sound with space enough for both suggestive heaviness and mind-expansion. These tracks bubble and seethe, growing forth freely. Sometimes, the mostly instrumental tracks are irresistibly captivating, as in the trance-inducing "Summer Disco," at other times, they are weightless, as on the loop-like "The Most Beautiful Moment Of The Dream," which breathtakingly floats into "Thorns Of Solitude," which could be an earthy, space-rock movie soundtrack. "Wedding Reel" is a slight divergence from traditional Swedish folk music, with rhythms and melodies that are played brutally, like a plow wrenching deep furrows into a field of stone. Homeless Cats makes its mark. Heavy, vertiginous, and, just like Träd Gräs och Stenar themselves, timeless." -Subliminal Sounds

Gatefold double LP version. "The long-awaited new album from the legendary pioneers of transcendental psychedelic rock music and DIY culture in general. Tack För Kaffet (So Long) is a tribute to the deceased band members and dearest friends Torbjörn Abelli and Thomas Mera Gartz. It becomes something of a farewell show for the old Träd, Gräs Och Stenar because all the old and new members, including founder Bo Anders, Torbjörn and Mera, and Reine Fiske (Dungen, The Amazing), are all contributing to this album. The sounds were captured on tape in their music workshop in the countryside and consists mainly of improvised moments where the sounds travels beyond time and space, something that has been TGS hallmark over the years. Perhaps theres a form of melancholy over some of the album, much depending on how cruelly and suddenly Mera and Torbjörn passed away, but also on a little lighter and crazier whim. Everything is recorded live so there are no euphemistic circumstances, rather everything is pared down, bared bone drones, sounds traveling in the magical improvised unknown with no makeup, just as life can be when the feeling has control. A manifestation of improvised timelessly organic music and free creation. Real life!" - Subliminal Sounds.

This quintet are all individual singer/songwriters who play many instruments, hence the depth and intricacy of their sound. Drummer Johan, who possesses the clattering bombast of a Keith Moon, even lends his knowledge of Cuban drum-technique to this release." - Subliminal Sounds.

"Deluxe limited edition of 500 copies 2LP in a gatefold sleeve. This is the ultimate Swedish early 70s underground psych-funk erotica groove record! Yes, youve heard about the Swedish sin but heres the ultimate proof. Not only were the hippies practicing free love but they recorded some dirty music, too. In the early 70s, legendary outsider artist genius/madman Tom Zacharias, together with the cream of Swedish studio musicians, some beautiful Swedish hippie nymphs and a bunch of drugged-out freaks, recorded two ultra-rare LPs called Belinda and The Daughters Of Belinda, both of which are now mega-rare collectors items that never turn up, even in Sweden. These two masterpieces, with their XXX-rated lyrics, were recorded with both Swedish and English lyrics but only the Swedish language versions were ever released. Even though ads were released in both Screw magazine and Mayfair, the English language versions were kept in the can. Here are both versions plus some real sleazy bonus tracks that were not on the CD edition plus extended liner notes re-telling the previously-untold story of how this recording came to be. Great, groovy, funky acid erotica with loads of gurgling fuzz/wah-wah guitars, booming bass, wicked drum beats and over-the-top XXX erotic lyrics." -Subliminal Sounds.
