— First review of this album —
4 stars Swedish space rock flagship KUNGENS MÄN on a new run, this time performing a marathon!? Okay, be it on the stage or in the studio, the fivesome around Hans, Mattias, Mikael, Magnus and Peter don't do sports in a literal sense, or what? Although they are underway with much blood, sweat and tears, surely. You should know, presently, at least to every genre fan per se, the band's performances are cool inspired trips. Ideally suited to recharge the listener's batteries, for taking a (healthy!) break from everyday life. Like it is regarding sports for many people and in most cases too.

I must admit that I basically have problems with those scandinavian track titles. Hey, there's one exception, now that Second Third War Three fades out way too early ... argghhhh! ... this might be something to become accepted, to get over, in light of the limited space concerning a vinyl side. Apart from that, music-wise it's nearly impossible to highlight one track especially on this production. Eh sorry, maybe however the twenty minute closing track. Offered with a stoic krautrock beat, this is embellished by guitars and synths wonderfully swirrling all around.

Based on a propelling rhythm in general, this is cosmic music for you, spirtually akin to the Oresund Space Collective in best form. Yet again provided by German Adansonia label, 'Stockholm Maraton' invites to enjoy a fantastic trip. Quite obvious, one favourable driving force for appealing improvisations is the team spirit, the members' perfect interplay, taken for granted here. Please give it a shot, I mean this marathon course will not expect too much of you in any way, I'm absolutely sure.

4 stars Since 2013 this quintet from Stockholm, currently consisting of Hans Hjelm, Mattias Indy Pettersson, Mikael Tuominen, Magnus Öhrn and Peter Erikson, is on the run to deliver hours of top-notch jamming psych/space rock music. 'Förnekaren' is their latest offering, a double LP production released on the German Adansonia Records label. Some may have the viewpoint to see Sweden as the mothership of space rock, at least concerning Europe. Not a bad call when you're considering the great amount of bands coming from there, respectively Scandinavia in a wider sense.

Anyway, you should know that this is another case far away from aimless noodling. The songs are trippy, basically relaxed, don't bear substantial twists and turns when it comes to the particular flow. Nonetheless you'll have the ability to follow something entertaining, an issue full of suspense. I'm quite sure they initially are starting with a loosely appointed framework regarding every recording session ... and then eventually rely on each other according to a further inspired and constructive process. Well, sounds kinda simple, however deserves deep respect.

Hence, attending a KUNGENS MÄN gig surely must be an impressive experience, what I unfortunately could not realize yet. Now let me point at two songs which are rather exemplary. The extended Sista Ordets Krigsdans Genom Snickeriet will need 22 minutes to unfold, where the hypnotic rhythm branch is acting kraut rock alike. Both electric guitars are leading through time and space with safety and trance appeal, are slightly variating featuring post as well as space rock attitude over the course. Yeah, this is able to enchant even long-time experienced fans of improvised music!

As for a valuable contrast Krautespark immediately follows as the shortest excerpt, though showing a proper drive, therefore this is somewhat close to the Oresund Space Collective I'd say, this especially due to the rather jazzy drumming. Also, at some point they are offering an US westcoast psychedelia feel. Space rock fans will be delighted - with additional support from some liked-minded musicians KUNGENS MÄN have put an excellent album to the table. And it's worth it to visit their bandcamp page occasionally, as they are very productive.

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition.
