För mig finns ingen väg från hemmets dörr, Heidrunar/Solvännen (Heim011/Sol001)
The long awaited and highly anticipated first album from Swedish folk band Solblot has finally seen the light of day. Despite working at a glacial pace, having been formed in 2003 and until now having only released one single in 2007, Solblot is a band with a dedicated cult following, thanks to a few select and spectacular live performances. Solblot’s unique brand of neofolk is based on traditional Scandinavian folk and Swedish progressive rock, with a slight touch of the experimental. The songs are simple, melodic and catchy, with a punky edge and an organic, rough production. Their lyrics, sung in Swedish, are appropriated from the Nobel laureate and idealistic national romanticist Verner von Heidenstam (1859-1940). Nostalgic, romantic hymns of an idealised Sweden, which never existed except as a dream. Featuring: Kim Larsen (:Of the Wand and the Moon:, Solanaceae), Niels Rønne (:Of the Wand and the Moon:), Stefan Otto (Nebelung), Anne Eltard (:Of the Wand and the Moon:, Solanaceae) and Petter Lindgård (The Mopeds, session work for Tom Jones, Roxette, The Cardigans among others). Available both as CD and LP.
The CD includes a 16-page booklet with full colour photos. The LP includes an 18cm x 24cm cardprint. The black vinyl is limited to 400 copies and the yellow vinyl to 100 copies. (HEIM011/SOL001)
