Kungens Män from Stockholm, Sweden has been around as a musical unit since 2012. The roots as friends go way back though. Noises, impulses, fuck ups and improvised psychedelic jams with elements from kraut, lo-fi, punk, noise, shoegaze, free jazz and feel connected to the tradition of legendary Swedish improv rock such as Träd, Gräs och Stenar, International Harvester and Pärson Sound.
So much of the Kungens Man ethos is what I most love about the best music – they get together and play as their way of unloading the stress of a working week, locking in together in some dank rehearsal room, someone names a key to play in and Kungens Man proceed to play as just for a few hours they lose themselves in the wonder of music and vibrations that you get when 6 brothers are connected to the outer limits. First and foremost, they play for the love of it – that others get to share the joy is our privilege.
So via Adansonia, Cardinal Fuzz and Kungens Man - Lean back, take a deep breath, and hear the cosmos of Kungens Män unfold via these Five LPs that we proudly bring your way.
PLAY THEM LOUD AND PLAY THEM PROUD
