GAUPA – feberdröm

Posted in folk rock, heavy rock, psychedelic rock, stoner rock, sweden, Uncategorized on April 3, 2020 by vesalahde

this isnt rock music, this is art, magnificent blend of stoner/psychedelia/folk/chanson, wasnt sure if i was listening heavy rock or classical composition, the lady can sing, at times reminding of björk. KOZMIKARTIFACTZ

ENHET FÖR FRI MUSIK – det finns ett hjärta som för dig

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.

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

Perkele!, what happened to justice in this corrupted world of stalking?

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

Posted in hard rock, retro, rock, sweden, Uncategorized on August 18, 2017 by vesalahde

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.



LÅNGFINGER – crossyears

Posted in 70s, hard rock, heavy rock, sweden, Uncategorized on February 15, 2017 by vesalahde

another quality SMALL STONE retro rocker, 70s/80s heavy/hard rock raised to the level close to perfection, be prepared for tight power-grooves, mind-melting choruses, catchy riffs and memorable melodies.


Posted in blues rock, classic rock, hard rock, psychedelic rock, sweden, Uncategorized on February 13, 2017 by vesalahde

traditional hard/blues/heavy/classic rock boogie reminding of the happy times when music was still good, pure, soulful and carried a message… to cut a long story short an grooveful album that grows during every listen.

Gin Lady Cover

Ugh! Catchy old-school heavy rock done the right way, takes me back to time where “gillan is heavy rock”-LP was everything i needed, time when music was real and calculated crap wasnt filling the airwaves.Vamos!



WE LOST THE SKYLINE a little bit heavy

Posted in alternative, desert rock, psychedelic, sweden on May 9, 2014 by vesalahde

SISILISKO Waldeinsamkeit

swedish folk-doom band with finnish name, lizard in english, singer reminds of tom waits, unique stuff, me dig-a-lot.



Posted in ambient, experimental, space noise, sweden on June 6, 2013 by vesalahde


Sistermother, mmh, project name says something, very strange noise ambient from swedish backwoods, again have to say bit too weird,  but if you want your experimental music from outer space, this dude delivers. Actually this 5th track is pretty great, nice background music for UFO sighting we saw last night in Arabianranta.

ps. and now this 6th track got me hooked.

MAMONT Passing Through The Mastery Door

These swedes stomp some amazing psychedelic stoner classic rock.

MEXICOMA supervoid

Posted in rock, stoner, sweden on February 16, 2013 by vesalahde


guys sent their older album, but i like this new EP better, its nicely flowing stoner, well produced, everything’s there but i miss some simpler hookey stoner-riffing and rougher production, theres also nice john the revelator -cover.
