"Väderkvarn" b/w "Trygghetens Rus"
Swedish band Lejonsläktet was formed in the studio by long-time friends Volter Hagman & Alexander Eldefors, who have grown up together in the northern snowy mountain forests of Sweden, writing & playing music together in various incarnations since 2008. The duo recorded a digital- only EP as Lejonsläktet in late 2014, but the Vädkervarn 7-inch marks the project’s debut in the physical format. “Vädkervarn” slithers off the A-side, with a woozy organ line, it’s loping groove balanced by the duo’s vocal harmonies culled from decades of Sweden’s long psychedelic history from Träd Gräs Och Stenar to Düngen. “Tryggheten Rus” rockets off the flip side; a jaunty instrumental replete with bubbling vibes & synth, and scorching pick slides that shimmy’s it’s way next to Stereolab & Perrey-Kingsley in your record collection. The “Vädkervarn” 7-inch is pressed in an edition of 500 copies on randomly-mixed vinyl, is housed in the TiM company sleeve & includes a download code! Look for more Lejonsläktet soon from Trouble In Mind, but in the meantime, good luck prying this one off the decks!
