Trad, Gras Och Stenar - Tack For Kaffet (So Long) CD

"The long-awaited new album from the legendary pioneers of transcendental psychedelic rock music and DIY culture in general. Tack För Kaffet (So Long) is a tribute to the deceased band members and dearest friends Torbjörn Abelli and Thomas Mera Gartz. It becomes something of a farewell show for the old Träd, Gräs Och Stenar because all the old and new members, including founder Bo Anders, Torbjörn and Mera, and Reine Fiske (Dungen, The Amazing), are all contributing to this album. The sounds were captured on tape in their music workshop in the countryside and consists mainly of improvised moments where the sounds travels beyond time and space, something that has been TGS hallmark over the years. Perhaps there's a form of melancholy over some of the album, much depending on how cruelly and suddenly Mera and Torbjörn passed away, but also on a little lighter and crazier whim. Everything is recorded live so there are no euphemistic circumstances, rather everything is pared down, bared bone drones, sounds traveling in the magical improvised unknown with no makeup, just as life can be when the feeling has control. A manifestation of improvised timelessly organic music and free creation. Real life!"

A very pretty ,if dark , album. The first cut is a stately slow march into oblivion....but even my wife said, "What's this? It so beautiful!" Which doesn't happen all that often with what I listen to at home. The whole album moves like a sunset singing an elegy to a day. It is beautiful but mournful at the same time. This is great a "swan song" as I See You was for Daevid Allen's version of Gong(and if you know that one,...then you should get what I'm saying here!).
