MIDSOMMAR-BELSEBUB AR LOS, LP, 1971, SWEDEN


Squally psych guitar ramalamma with bluesy/hard rock-ish underpinnings and some proto prog ambitions from this Swedish outfit that shares exactly zero in common with the more notable exports from their underground of the period from Parsson Sound/Harvester to Samla/Zamla. Instead, what's going on here seems curiously behind the curve for 1971 Sweden, though this crew manage to produce some undeniably winning results at times in spite of it. Yugoslavia's Fire could be considered a bit of a touchstone for what's going down here, though minus their vicious guitar tone and with the addition of raw and strafed sax interventions and stray bits of rustic Tull-isms that lend 'em something of an early Burnin' Red Ivanhoe vibe as well.

kinda like early November or Råg i Ryggen style SWE Hard rock with trademark swe thin production.

Hear Asoka 1971 for a wilder blast

Good album anyway, thanks for sharing
