Thåström - Centralmassivet


Monday, new week, time to introduce "Record Of The Week"

"Centralmassivet" is Mr. Thåström's ninth solo album. Industry blues with electronic groove and a soulful singing is his trademark and that is what you will get with this release. Even from an international perspective, Thåström has developed a sound that is unique with Swedish lyrics that is just killing sensitive. And with Pelle Ossler's significantly dangling guitars, Niklas Hellberg's organ, Ulf Rockis Ivarsson bass lines, Mikael Nilzen keyboards, Nikolas Janco's drumming makes "Centralmassivet" another terrific album by Thåström.


The album starts with "Bluesen I Malmö" flows in the same stream as "Jeffrey Lee Pierce", but more deeper and cyrillic. In the dark monotonous electronic shadows of "Körkarlen" I feel lucky and I Just love the sequencer bass that drives the tune forward. The title track is a beautiful ballad with a sensitive Thåström to move forward to the spoken word-rock, Thåström has never been so inspired by Bruno K Öijer as at "Old Point Bar". "Låt Det Goda" is a captivating tune, cruel and fuzzy to make a break in the album to a senselessly beautiful ballad "Aldrig Av Med Varandra" where we hear the voice of LaGaylia Frazier in the background. The magically "Som mästarna målat himlen" where Pugh Rogefeldt appears among the songwriters is a real highlight on the album. "Karaokebaren" is a powerful tune, smokey and Industrial. "Natten För Det Här" is a slow piece and ends the album lovely!

The album contains 9 tunes that clocks in at almost 45 min. Released September 29, 2017. It was recorded at Hansa-studio in Berlin and produced by Thåström and Niklas Hellberg.

Sum: "Centralmassivet" is a sensitive and very beautiful album that is a must for every Thåström fan.

Today's tune is the title track from "Centralmassivet". The clip is from last weeks tour premier at Lisebergshallen October 11, 2017

Yes - Roundabout


"Roundabout" is a song by the English rock band YES from their fourth studio album "Fragile", released in November 1971. It was written by singer Jon Anderson and guitarist Steve Howe and produced by the band and Eddy Offord. The song originated when the band were on tour and travelled from Aberdeen to Glasgow, and went through many roundabouts on the way.




YES lead singer Jon Anderson and guitarist Steve Howe wrote this song near the end of a tour when they were traveling in Scotland. They were in the back of a van going from Aberdeen to Glasgow when the song came together.

Anderson had smoked marijuana during the trip, "so everything was vivid and mystical". Anderson added: "It was a cloudy day, we couldn't see the top of the mountains. We could only see the clouds because it was sheer straight up ... I remember saying, "Oh, the mountains–look! They're coming out of the sky!"

The band had been touring for about a month, and Anderson was looking forward to his imminent return to London, where he could once again see his wife at the time, Jennifer. The lyrics, "Twenty four before my love you'll see I'll be there with you" indicate that he is just 24 hours away from being with her again.

This was the bands breakthrough hit and one of their most well-known songs, but the band wasn't looking for a hit at the time. The album version runs 8:29, but it was edited to 3:27 for release as a single, which climbed to #13 on the US Hot 100, giving the band their biggest hit until they eclipsed it with "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" in 1983.

The song was released as an edited single in the US in January 1972 with "Long Distance Runaround", another track from Fragile, as the B-side.



So enjoy today's tune "Roundabout" performed at Yessongs in 1973
