A crowd of nearly a hundred people struggle against the icy autumn wind, finding their way between the outcrops towards the narrow, fire-lined path that disappears into the mountain. On stage, dressed in a white shirt with sleeves rolled up and hair tightly combed back, Slim Vic keeps his gaze fixed on the audience. In front of him is a double DJ setup with turntables and mixer. From out of the fog, a haze of color and shadows, the music emerges and rumbles through the bunker until bats are woken and sweep over the heads of the audience.

In Lisa & Kroffe’s fourth full-length album ‘Roslagens Famn’, the breath of sound machine history are mixed with the vibrant energy of traditional instruments, born out of the strong presence of the Roslagen nature. The result is instrumental music in the borderland between folk, psychedelic and the rhythmic progress of the Berlin School. The album was recorded during the summer of 2019 in the Roslagen archipelago with the sound genius Tomas Bodén (Civilistjävel) as technician and sound master. Continue reading →

Riposte Erik Satie, a newly written piece by Mikael Strömberg, is a reinterpretation of the idea behind Erik Saties Vexations (“harassment”). “Riposte” means response, in response, attack – as a response to Satie and as a silent attack over time.
