KEBNEKAJSE-ELEFANTEN, LP, 1977, SWEDEN



Following my post of this Swedish outfit's sublime second album, here's their fifth from four years on (with their name now spelled with a J instead of an I) and it's suffused with much the same elevated vibe of scintillating Swedish folk theme-derived aerated upfullness as was "II". Some of the bits here could conceivably scan as being a bit more whimsically slight of tone than their earlier era (mid-period Hoelderlin occasionally comes to mind), only for the proceedings to lunge into a blistering ethno-rock jam that'll quiet any reservations. A funk component is undeniably creeping into their formulation here on occasion as well, but that just adds a sexy new wrinkle to their admixture via their snaky way with a groove, methinks.

Thank you for this.

Any chance of finding Kenny Håkansson's "Spelar Springlekar och Gånglåtar" for us?

For my taste it's their first that counts.

The first track -- Ingenting -- what does that remind you of?

I can't quite place it, but I think it's somehow related to a 70's TV show.
