Psych & Folk!

Time for one of the biggest updates this year, and also one of the most interesting. Psychedelic sounds, deep songs from generations of trouble, phased out guitars, acoustic strumming and virtuosity, noise dipped in a bucket of echo and sent off to space.
We're talking about psychedelic rock and folk rock of course!

Plenty of titles we've never had in stock before, like the mythical Chris Lucey (read up on the back story, it's one of the best record stories ever), raw garage session at Cheetah (with the plastic pillow!), sealed Chrysalis, Elyse Weinberg, the deep Marian Henderson, Insect Trust...
Plus classic stuff like Silver Apples, Fifty Foot Hose, Wendy & Bonnie, a handful of Tom Rapp/Pearls Before Swine, Godz, Fugs, H.P. Lovecraft, Ultimate Spinach and no less than 23 (or was it 24?) Grateful Dead related LPs!

Rare Groove

Trying to wipe the rain off our windows with some feelgood Rare Grooves today! Quite a lot of Record Mania classics/staples, both cheapies and a bunch for the hardcore collectors.
Alice Clark, Newban and Odyssey are some of the more soulful titles, the funk is represented by Bobby Boyd Congress, The Meters - Struttin', Dennis Coffey - Hair and Thangs and an original copy of Parliament's Osmium. The Hip Hop/sample/break heads get theirs with Lyn Christopher, Incredible Bongo Band and Ernie Hines - Electrified!

Progressive Rock!

This week it's all about "Progg" (in the Scandinavian, political sense) and progressive rock. Swedish heavyweight titles like original copies of the two recently reissued Träd Gräs & Stenar LPs "Mors Mors" and "Djungelns Lag", Pandora's (not that 90s Pandora) "Measures of Time", hard rocking Renhjärta album "Glitt-Glitt", the increasingly popular Stenblomma - "Alla träd har samma rot" and the cosmic, Berlin-school sounding masterpiece "Tussilago Fanfara" by Anna Själv Tredje.
Outside of Sweden we have UK top proggers like Egg ("The Civil Surface"), Galliard ("New Dawn") on Deram, the first Genesis LP and a bunch of records from our Norwegian neighbours Ruphus.
Later tonight you have the chance to see the first live gig by Swedish psychedelic space-kraut-library-funk group Hashish. Their debut LP has sold great, but we still have copies in case you've been sleeping (http://recordmania.se/index.php?ref=lookup&recid=RWN126039).
Record Mania's Head of Rock and Various International Affairs, Martin, has been given the night off to take you on a trippy record voyage across both hemispheres - before and after the show.
