Posted in experimental, free folk, sweden, Uncategorized on November 5, 2019 by vesalahde

GY9-5 Enhet For Fri Musik - Album Cover.jpg

strange LP that i can strangely compare to my own strange recordings, with an exception these minimalistic improvised tracks are made with guitar, saxophone, tape effects, field recordings and some of them have strange female vocals, if your musical taste is strange you might like this strangeness. GRAPEFRUIT

no worries, changed the OS again… at 1st this sounded like kyussish stoner/desert rock with unique female vocals, this girl can scream and sing, also some oriental vibes, heavier parts, whatever the genre is this 5-track EP made me craving for more KOZMIK ARTIFACTZ

STEW – people

Posted in 70s, blues, classic rock, hard rock, sweden, Uncategorized on September 21, 2019 by vesalahde

Stew band 2019 - 3

after a while an album that was a pleasure to listen, as authentic as 70s hard/psych/classic rock can sound, innovative riffing, skillful vocals, groove, goes to same category as Charlies posted earlier.


Posted in classic rock, doom metal, folk rock, heavy rock, sweden, Uncategorized on July 14, 2019 by vesalahde


theres never enough of female-fronted doom, to be honest sometimes there is, but heres innovative riffing, dreamlike vocals, depressful lyrics, spooky atmosphere, so to speak everything that doomster hippie needs

GIN LADY – tall sun crooked moon

Posted in country rock, hard rock, heavy rock, sweden, Uncategorized on May 10, 2019 by vesalahde

forgotten LP from the 60s/70s flowerfilled love-fueled america? unbelievably catchy hard/country rock reminding of (to name a few) kiss, canned heat, lynyrd skynyrd, grateful dead, neil young.. KOZMIK ARTIFACTZ

CAVEM3N – the stalefield incident

Posted in blues rock, heavy rock, rocknroll, sweden, Uncategorized on April 18, 2019 by vesalahde


grim lyrics about serial killers, musically varying from catchy rocknroll to blues rock and twisted progressions in between, gotta say this sounds unique and after all its a good reminder how pervert this world is now, stalking is a fucking trend, children molested more than ever, etc..



Posted in ambient, folk, sweden, Uncategorized on December 28, 2017 by vesalahde

familiar from one or two droning earth comps, pictoresque folk ambient.

PERKELE – Göteborg EP

Posted in punk rock, sweden, Uncategorized on September 9, 2017 by vesalahde

After hearing too much depressing music, where musician wants to die or hopes that other people die (finnish top40 songs are depressing too), its refreshing to listen this kinda melodic punk rock, track so good it makes me wanna pack my bags and move to göteborg immediately, OI OI OI! Guys have other amazing tracks too.

GIN LADY – electric earth

GIN LADY - Electric Earth COVER.jpg

catchy hard rock from woodstock times or a band from Sweden of the recent years? authentic 60s/70s rock with a modern touch. did i understood the lyrics, guys have something against freedom riders but they wanna dance with flower people, i think flower people were all about freedom too.



Posted in desert rock, stoner rock, sweden, Uncategorized on April 22, 2017 by vesalahde


laidback thick stoner groove in the spirit of kyuss, excellent soundtrack for hot and steamy beer-drinking sessions of the next summer or for the desert roadtrip of your life.
