Monday Long Song
To coincide with the release of 'Hårt Som Ben', their second LP of 2019, the mighty Kungens Män will be undertaking a short UK tour in December. I've featured the band (plus offshoots and side projects) several times in the past, but have not been lucky enough to see them play live - until now. To say that I'm excited at the prospect would be to understate the case to a frankly laughable degree. I'm beside myself and the show is still nearly a month in the future. It's a 3½ hour round trip to the venue, immediately following a 6am-3pm shift at work, but I can't think of a better way to conclude my gig-going year. Expect further ravings in due course.
'Undre Inre Yttre Rymden' (translates as 'Lower Inner Outer Space') is taken from the 2016 Kungens Män LP 'Stockholm Maraton'.

Being generally completely out of the loop, I have never heard of these chaps; glad I have now. This is great. Must search out more. Thanks, sir.
this kind of stuff is what floats my boat more than anything else these days. Have you checked out the latest Psychic Lemon album? A splendid racket.
Rickety Rackety. You're welcome. Check out their Bandcamp page for a large catalogue of similar grooviness. Also, scattered through my Monday Long Song posts you'll find a selection of tunes from like-minded combos.
Drew. Not yet, but it's on the list!
I've got this thing about music to accompany train journeys... even if they're only train journeys in my mind, the visuals I mean - trees, fields, cuttings, flashes of buildings, big skies all passing by and my eyes never leaving them, as if it's them that are moving and not the train. I think I want to turn it into a film. Anyway (sorry for that long explanation!) but this fits the bill perfectly as part of the soundtrack!
You've mentioned your train journey soundtracks in the past C, I know exactly what you mean. I hope this tune gets added to the playlist!
A neighbour I was at Thurston Moore with last night was talking about these. They're playing Manchester in December so I should go along based on this.
You gave them the thumbs up last time too Swiss Adam https://unthoughtofthoughsomehow.blogspot.com/2018/08/k-rauta.html
Yeah- you know how you sometimes just forget to follow something up. That.
What a great song from this band. I really love their music and I was glad to see them live last year. Probably one of the last bands that hold the flag of krautrock inspired psychedelic sound today. Great stuff Swede.
