Title: From Möja to Minneapolis
Format: DVD
Label: Gashud
Country: Sweden
Price: $26.00
"Träd Gräs och Stenar have their origin in the legendary Swedish psychedelic/experimental bands, Pärson Sound/International Harvester/Harvester who started playing in 1967. The band dissolved in 1972 but reunited in 1995, ready for new adventures and they never ever lost the spirit. They still rank as one of the most amazing contemporary psych bands worldwide. During 2002-2005, Mikael Högström and his video camera accompanied their gigs. As time went on, it turned into a little project. Mikael showed the band his latest clips and under their merciless eyes and ears, those clips slowly developed into this DVD. The amazing footage and sound documents the band performing in Sweden, USA and Russia. It also contains recordings from other cameras and sound recorders, including a few glimpses from the bands old 8mm movies -- an echo from the past. An amazing psychedelic journey in sounds and sights. Time 118 min., plus an extra bonus 3 min. 21 secs. with old film clips from 1970. 4:3; NTSC PCM; Stereo; Region: 0; DVD 9; Double Layer." - Gashud.

Title: Ain Schvajn Draj
Format: CD
Label: Silence
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
"New reunion album, recorded 1998-2000! Featuring original members Bo Anders Persson, Tobjörn Abelli & Thomas Gartz (all related to: Harvester, Int Harvester, Pärson Sound). This a layered, textural rock record and very strong for the times." - FE. "We want to thank the patient horses who were our closest neighbours when we recorded in Jacobs joiners workshop on the island Färingsö. Its true that they sometimes pawed the wall -- in appreciation or annoyance? When they were out in their pasture we had to shut off the electric fence. The impulses came into the tape, it sounded like a metronome with co-operative problems. A few tunes are recorded in a room in ÿllösa old school outside Stjärnhov, in Torbjörns sister Bissas home. All the instrumentals were created at the very moment, the result of an accidental alchemist occurrence -- a meeting of four old men at the crossroads of an imaginary landscape. Ain Schvajn Draj! is what ran out of the test tubes after Thomas Meras experiments with cloning TGS. The doa-choir The Nymphettes is his own highly temporary change of gender. The recordings are made by Träd Gräs och Stenar during several occasions from 1998-2001 on 2 ADAT tape recorders." - Silence.

Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Silence
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
"1995 reissue of the first Träd Gräs och Stenar album, originally issued on the Decibel label in Sweden in 1970. Their name translated as Trees, Grass & Stones. A rock group led by Bo Anders Persson (after his works with Pärson Sound, Harvester, International Harvester), this was their first of 3 albums , a definitely more "rockist" continuation of the post-minimalist experiments of the earlier groups, but still with that undefinable Swedish underground "feeling". - Silence.

Title: Gardet 12.6.1970
Format: CD
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $16.00
A 1996 reissue, repressed. "The first in our new series called Swedish Underground Archives. The series will focus on classic yet mostly unreleased recordings by known and unknown to mythical Swedish progressive/psychedelic groups from the 1960s/70s. First out is the best ever recording from the legendary Trad Gras & Stenar (Trees Grass & Stones) recorded at the first ever Swedish outdoors summer hippie festival in 1970. The sound is just amazing: a stoned lysergic wall of acid guitars jamming away and never letting up, pounding bass, furious drums and mystical howling vocals. A true landmark in psychedelic/progressive history." - Silence.

Title: Homeless Cats
Format: Double LP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
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

Title: Tack For Kaffet (So Long)
Format: Double LP
Label: Subliminal Sounds
Country: Sweden
Price: $30.00
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.
