More bands have been added to Roadburn Festival 2014 curated by Mikael Åkerfeldt.
Denmark's Papir will create their own extraordinary type of semi-improvised psychedelic rock by transcending the usual labels. Moody and unexpected twists and turns seems to be their trademark. Psych legends of the future? The band will appear twice at Roadburn but both sets will bear no resemblance to each other. Exciting!
REINE FISKE/NICKLAS BARKER
Reine Fiske is in my opinion the best guitar player from Sweden and with that, one of the best in the world. He’s got an ethereal quality that I’ve not heard anywhere else. And teaming up with the lord of dark psych and hellfire, Nicklas Barker just cannot fail. I’ve no idea what these cats are up to for Roadburn 2014, but I do know it’ll be fantastic. I do know there will be a Fender Stratocaster (yes, Reine?) on stage, and a mellotron. I will be there. Watching. Worshipping.
I’m so happy to announce that Änglagård is taking part in my curated day at Roadburn 2014. If you don’t know them they are one of the 3 (together with Landberk and Anekdoten) pioneers of the second wave of Swedish prog/psychedelia. Just like the other 2 bands their sounds are heavily focused around the ghostly presence of the mellotron, yet the three bands sound nothing the same. I last saw them ”alive” last Summer and I was quite floored. Their show will be a winding musical journey of light and shade. Beauty and…the beast? Never mind my ramblings. They are amazing and you will love them. Just shut up!
