My Brother The Wind: Roadburn 2013

Taken from roadburn.com:

“We’re very excited to announce that Sweden’s My Brother The Wind will bring their improvised experimental psychedelia to Roadburn Festival 2013 on Saturday, April 20th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.

Led by Anekdoten‘s Nicklas Barker, the chemistry between Barker, Mathias Danielsson (guitars), Ronny Eriksson (bass) and Tomas Eriksson (drums) is really something special, as captured on their latest album, I Wash My Soul in the Stream of Infinity , recorded in only  4 hours during a cold Swedish winter’s night in 2011.

With the focus less on guitar solos and more on group virtuosity, the instrumentation is altered to create interesting and intricately layered rock soundscapes, seemingly influenced by King Crimson, Amon Düül II and Sweden’s seminal prog-pioneers, Träd, Gräs och Stenar. This particular influences serve in distinguishing My Brother The Wind‘s instrumental odysseys from the current crop of European jam-bands.

My Brother The Wind takes the best elements of improvised kraut and prog-rock, and once the spaceship has escaped the pull of Earth’s gravity, they drift into magnificent droning space rock and psychedelic orbits.

Roadburn Festival 2013 will run for four days from Thursday, April 18th to Sunday, April 21st, 2013 (the traditional Afterburner event) at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland. Pre-sales start Thursday, 4 October at 20:30 CET.
