Mattias Hellberg &The White Moose
Mattias Hellberg &The White Moose
out of the frying pan and into the woods - cd

Mattias Hellberg reminds me of Devendra Banhart. Not only because of his hair and beard. The music he plays along with his band The White Moose is eclectic in a similar way Banhartís music is. But where Banhartís foundation is tropicalia Hellbergís music got its roots in rockíníroll. No wonder as he used to play in The HellacoptersÖ

Donít get me wrong. This record sounds neither like The Hellacopters nor like rockíníroll. It is more like rockíníroll is their language but what they speak is total druggy gibberish. Itís psychedelic, itís weird and itís pretty one of a kind. New Weird Sweden? MaybeÖ

I really like this record because it is pretty unique and hard to categorize but not totally unlistenable or pseudo artsy nonsense. Itís just a good old lsd roadtrip in a pink Cadillac with an Elvis Presley-moose-hybrid life form as your driver. The artwork is silly. And totally amazing! This record is freak folk without folk. If you like music that makes you feel like you have taken drugs come on in!  [jan]
