Pärson Sound - Pärson Sound (2001)

Extended, hypnotic, drug-fueled musical ceremonies from a bunch of Swedish freaks. Performed between 1967 and '68, none of these recordings saw official release until 2001. They're all pretty lo-fi, and have a heavy, trance-inducing, highly underground sound that makes them feel, in some ways, more akin to the musical experiments of La Monte Young's Theatre of Eternal Music than to the flowery sounds of many of their peers in the worldwide psych rock scene of the late 60s.

Members went on to form a number of projects, including Harvester, whose one and only album is one of the first things I posted on here.

Track listing:
1. Intro
2. Tio Minuter (Ten Minutes)
3. From Tunis to India in Fullmoon (On Testosterone)
4. India (Slight Return)
5. A Glimpse Inside the Glyptotec-66
6. One Quiet Afternoon (In the King's Garden)
7. Sov Gott Rose-Marie
8. Skrubba
9. Milano
10. On How to Live
11. Blåslåten

You shouldn't take that away from me
I need it to live, you see

  1. "One Quiet Afternoon" sounds like proto trip-hop. Tricky was -1 years old when this was written.
