S.T. Mikael: In Harmony (XMLP-SUB25) LP
Heavily mind-bending album from the mysterious and legendary Swedish psychedelic multi-instrumentalist. “In Harmony” is the 2nd volume, and the natural conclusion, to the recordings S.T. Mikael partially made with Fredrik Bjorling and Reine Fiske (of Dungen) and which were introduced with the album “Mind of Fire”. The last albums closing track “Gyrax, an ode to the ancient mushroom-cults, points the way to the new album. “In Harmony” is dedicated to our arch Mother, Nature, and all the treasures and mysteries it contains. The first track “Mother is Calling” signals this from the outset and his fifteen minute epos “Higher”, which Mikael performs as a one-man-band, tells about the blissful happiness he has received from that which springs from, and grows, in nature. As our world is changing more and faster S.T. Mikael says that it is important that we partake in the psychedelic communion and listen to each other…before it’s too late. Try it! Limited edition of 500 copies and vinyl only.
