We seldom highlight music from our home country but in this episode we turn the spotlight on some Swedish underground and psychedelic bands. In the episode we listen to some of the most obscure bands of the Swedish underground, like Paul Edoh’s Class Breakers, which only release was a test pressing with just a few copies made, but we also play well established acts, such as Nature and Mecki Mark Men. To add some confusion, we also throw in a Finnish band, Cirius, and the reason for the inclusion is that they do a little-known but great version of Bosses Låt (originally recorded by the Swedish band Fläsket Brinner). On top of this, we also listen to some contemporary Swedish progressive music with Pocket-Size and the track Clairvoyant from their new album Immortality (released in December 2018).
