Have you missed out on this? Getting absolutly AMAZING reviews.

The 309 copies in purple vinyl is totally sold out. 180g black vinyl and CD is now found in your local store.

”I have always been fascinated by what happens the first time a group of musicians take on a piece of music. I wanted to explore this and found some dear friends who felt the same and whose musicianship I admire.

The concept on this album is quiet simple. I spent 2 days the 13th and 14th of august 2019 writing; short stories, some chord progressions, some lyrics, some songs. A week later I invited Tonbruket to my house and we spent 24 hrs – the 21st and 22nd of august 2019 – recording approximately 2 hours of music…everything is live and first takes except for the backing vocals. When we mixed it we chose the stuff that fit on a 40 minute LP.” – Christian Kjellvander

Sustaining a long and succesful career Christian Kjellvander is among Sweden’s finest singer/songwriters and performers since his early days in acts like Loosegoats and Songs of Soil. His latest album ”Wild Hxmans”, was hailed as one of his finest outlets so far and got nominated at the Swedish Grammys. A true story teller with a strong sense of melody who’s frequently touring internationally.

Tonbruket has had an unprecedented run of Swedish Grammy winning album, four in a row, since forming ten years ago. The bands intriguing fusion of psychedelic free form, progressive rock, American roots music and jazz has attracted audiences all over Europe. Led by former EST member Dan Berglund the four piece also includes members of The Soundtrack of Our Lives and Wildbirds & Peacedrums. All About Jazz nailed the concept in their review of the band’s Abbey Road recorded album ”Nubium Swimtrip”: ”it transcends the genres it is inspired by to create new, original, and unique music that is worth listening to by fans of any genre.” Tonbrukets latest studio album ”Masters of Fog” was released in 2019.

Wendy McNeill – Video for The Binding of Fenrir

Fenrir was a giant wolf from Norse mythology that helped to bring about massive destruction by  killing the great God Odin and swallowing the sun. (look up Ragnarök) But I wonder if maybe, like many of the monsters around us, Fenrir wasn’t born evil but became that way because of how he was treated. I’m not foolish enough to believe that there is no such thing as evil-but mayyyybe we should be a little bit more more careful with our judgments- and each other. After all there is a bit of big bad wolf in all of us.
This song is part of a longer story that is woven through my latest album, ‘Hunger Made You Brave’.
This video is shot from Fenrir’s point of view in the lovely Cafe de las Horas in Valencia, Spain.
