More Information
Just 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
