Joakim Skogsberg; Jola RotaSubliminal Sounds
SUB 090 LP
Long Playing Record
The first official vinyl reissue of one of Sweden's greatest unknown psychedelic treasures from the 1970s. From the original master tapes and with the original artwork, including previously-unpublished archival pictures and liner notes. The album contains a mysterious, shamanistic and highly psychedelic "folk music" infused with incredible soundscapes of derailed, fuzzed-out violins, soaring guitars, rattling hand percussion, droning vocals and pulsating bass rhythms. Originally released in 1972, the album sold 300-400 copies and was then withdrawn and the remaining copies discarded, making Jola Rota a much-rumored and sought-after Swedish droned-out and mesmerizing psychedelic artifact.
