You'll probably pick up some subtle similarities suggesting that it's the same band, but each album has something new to say. Whereas the self-titled second album sponsored a distinct psychedelic feel to it, sounding like a decisively folky type of Krautrock to yours truly - this one elaborates on the folk tendencies.
The first track Leksands brudmarsch is a perfect example of this natural progression. The musical theme is taken directly from a bridal march, though here it is heavily infused by congas and all around fuzzy and frenetic instrumentation. Like all the other tunes here which rely on old school Scandinavian folk thematics, the feel of the thing is somewhat split into the authentic vibe often coming from the duetting violin and guitar, and then what happens around it: a far more psychedelic and rhythmically enhanced pseudo psychedelic music that simply defies description.
I guess we're back at those twirling dancers again Just like another Swedish band I reviewed not too long ago called Archimedes Badkar, you get the impression that Kebnekaise were trying to challenge the sonic framework of this old national music - adding African and Spanish percussions to the mix. Throwing some psychedelic fiery electric guitars in there - lighting things up nicely. Then again, when you think you've got this album pinned down, it throws a piece like St.
John at you, and alakazam! We're in Benny Hill country! Taking the role of soundtrack to one of England's favourite silent funny men, you're tempted to start all over in your pensive philosophizing about this band's true nature. Bah formed the band the Happy Boys, also including Netzler, but soon moved to Finland. Title Description. Samla Mammas Manna.

I would absolutely say this is an essential record, and one of the best in the prog folk genre. Highly recommended! Unfortunately this isn't their best record. The two "african" songs "Aventure" and "Battery" are worse than many other form of music. They seem meaningless and very boring like long jams and not especially interesting at all.
Otherwise even this record contains great stuff to enjoy such as "Snickar-Anders" the opener which is both dark and groovy and traditional and very melodical. Is that song they caught speed and joy and it is hard to not move to that song. But do not listen to Aventure or Battery, they could not be more boring. A big question. I think this could have been better if "Kebne" had waited until this year with releasing it. They could have recorded more and better songs.
Still the most tracks show how great this band can be and I am willing to give it three stars. I recommend you to explore Kebnekajse, but begin with their second blue record from Up here in the cold north, we have a very similar sounding folk music. Whether you travel to Sweden, Denmark or Norway - there are definite trademarks of an old kind of music that has been in existence for many many centuries. I've actually grown up on this music, and I remember my grandparents dancing along to this unique sounding waltz music quite clearly, and I guess it goes way back into my early childhood years.
They were dressed up in traditional costumes - my grandmother wearing a red dress with some kind of apron on top of it. Wooden clogs on her feet - just like my grandpa, and all these other superfluous clothes items, which at the time seemed completely ridiculous to me, as they were on the verge of swinging wildly around on the dance floor.
Keeping warm should be the least of their concerns, but what did I know? Scrobble Stats? What is scrobbling? Artist images 8 more. Kebnekajse 12, listeners Related Tags progressive rock swedish progg Kebnekajse are a Swedish band that was most active during the s.
