TRÄD GRÄS & STENAR - Djungelns Lag 1971



Swedens Träd gräs och Stenar (trans: Trees grass and Stones) is perhaps the ultimate psychedelic underground long jam band. If you think Grateful Dead or Quicksilver are stretched out and psychedelic than these guys take things further on onto an entirly different level. Technically TGS isn't as good as perhaps GD or QMS, but when it comes to psychedelic sounds and vibe and spirtual depth (a rare commodity in rock music) these guys take no backseat to anyone. German bands were similar but the arty plastic vibe in their music hindered them from achiving this that TGS gets through. TGS has a minimalist base influenced by dudes like Terry Riley but unlike the German Psych bands these guys leaned more to SF and the long jam format and wasted Acid lead guitar vibe and this makes the TGS experience so unique. I have posted here their 2nd album Djungelns Lag (trans: law of the jungle) from 1971. It's a Lo-Fi live recording done during the bands Scandinavian tour. You get both short crude underground folk psych numbers and the bands legendery long jam psych outs that clock from 9 to 30+ minutes. Due to the extreme rareness of this album I urge all of you to actively share this to everyone who is into this vibe. Don't fear leeching etc, it's about the music. Have a trip you won't forget.
