More Information
ust half a year since "Allt hänger samman" and the fourth album from Sagor & Swing, "Orgelplaneten" ("The Organ Planet") is here. The energy has been turned up quite a bit. This more energetic side of their sound has been showing a whole lot during their concerts, but this is the first time that it has been captured on record, as a document of how the duo have sounded live. It also stands out from their three earlier records by adding Moog and accordion to the usual setup of organ and drums.A more playful and joyous atmosphere runs through the record. Many of the songs e.g. "8-bitarspolskan" and "Äventyr i Alperna" have an electronic sound reminiscing of synthesizer experiments á la Jean Jacques Perrey. "Distro" and "Postmodernism" are both full-on instrumental pop songs while "Smedjebacken by night" echoes of lazy hotdog-stand reggae. But the fairyland-music and Sagor & Swing's unmistakable touch is still there, just below the surface.This album marks the end for Sagor & Swing. Echoes and shadows will certainly turn up in the future, but "Orgelplaneten" is the final record from the group as we remember them.Personnel: Eric Malmberg: organ, Moog, accordion; Ulf Möller: drums(label info)
