JOAKIM SKOGSBERG: Jola Rota (Subliminal Sounds) LP
The first official vinyl reissue of one of Sweden’s greatest unknown psychedelic treasures from the 1970s. One time only limited pressing of 500 copies. From the original master tapes and with the original artwork, including previously unpublished archival pictures and liner notes. The album contains a mysterious, shamanistic and highly psychedelic “folk music” infused with incredible soundscapes of derailed fuzzed out violins, soaring guitars, rattling hand percussion, droning vocals and pulsating bass rhythms. Originally released in 1972, the album sold 300-400 copies and was then withdrawn and the reaming copies discarded making Jola Rota a much rumored and sought after Swedish droned-out and mesmerizing psychedelic artifact. The legendary Swedish musicians on this album include Pugh Rogefeldt, Göran Lagerberg, Mats Glenngård and Thomas Netzler. Don’t miss this one!
