Älgarnas Trädgård - Framtiden Är Ett Svävande Skepp, Förankrat I Forntiden (1972)

Waaaaaay out-there Swedish prog/psych. Droning organs, oscillating synth, violins, sitar, tabla, harp, and a lot more form a darkly cerebral, deeply psychedelic, raga-like sound.

Track listing:
1. Två Timmar Över Två Blå Berg Med En Gök På Vardera Sida... Om Timmarna Alltså
2. Det Finns En Tid För Allt, Det Finns En Tid Då Även Tiden Möts
3. Möjligheternas Barn
4. Tristans Klagan
5. Viriditas
6. Saturnus Ringar
7. Framtiden Är Ett Svävande Skepp, Förankrat I Forntiden


Also listen to:
Yatha Sidhra -
A Meditation Mass (1974)
Vangelis -
The Dragon (1978)


  1. This is one of my favourite albums, ever... it touches me so deeply. I hope it moves you all too :-) Great on shrooms btw ;-)

  2. hey, great post! Still trying to get through your best of 2017 post - slow down!! haha
    Do you have anything from the Svart Records label from Finland, anything really, but in particular anything by Mikko Joensuu?

    1. I do have a certain amount of Svart Records stuff, but no Mikko Joensuu. Anything else specific you're looking for?

    2. Check it out, like a minute after I wrote that I tracked down a copy of Amen 3, here's a link: http://www61.zippyshare.com/v/wdWBdqfh/file.html

    3. That's great, thank you very much!
      There is nothing specific. I'd really like to hear your recommendations on this one. It is such a wonderful label, with a wide range of music styles and consistent quality, from the minimal of what I've heard so far.
