V​ä​ttarnas fest

by Grovjobb

Gånglåt 06:50
Sauna 04:45


During their heyday, Grovjobb released three, nowadays much sought after cd's (on Garageland Records), which one and all consisted of magical songs and textures, all closely connected to dark forests and forces unknown hiding out in the Swedish woods.

Led by guitar-wizard and composer Jerry Johansson, his songs slowly entwines around the morning dew of golden fields, while unicorns dances together with birds and trees under a glimmering and newly awakened sun.

Jerry is also a master of the sitar, so his way of being and constructing songs is also wholly reflected through Indian-coloured glasses. All in all, three 'must-have' albums, of which the first and the second, 'Landet Leverpastej' and 'Vättarnas Fest', are re-issued in limited editions of 200 copies each, by MusicBazz.

Both albums have very carefully been re-mastered by Jerry Johansson to a sensational sound experience, and the cover artworks are brand new (re-)designs by artist Dan Fröberg, with the original ink drawing on 'Vättarnas Fest' made by legendary Swedish illustrator Hans Arnold.

This recording was released on Garagleland Records GRCD024, 2000 (CD) and re-issued by MusicBazz ZZ005, 2016 (LP).
