RH Digital Distribution: Mamon – Creatures

EP cover final

Gothenburg-based hard rockers MAMON successfully takes us back to the early 70’s! They are mixing the groove from early LED ZEPPELIN along with a vigorous Hammond organ that makes you remember the first time you heard DEEP PURPLE’s mighty “In Rock”. Their first single “Creatures” is a mash-up of beautifully crafted melodies and arrangements, a skilled rhythm section that brings MOUNTAIN’s Felix Pappalardi and N.D. Smart to mind. Mix this with the dashing voice of Caroline Wennergrund and you got MAMON, a band that interpreters the best era of music in their own way.”

ALBUM OF THE DAY: Sandrose – s/t

Image

Unlike most other European countries, except England, the French scene was alot more inspired by bands like SOFT MACHINE, rather than the Italian and Dutch, who followed the UK idols in KING CRIMSON, YES and E.L.P. The debut album from SANDROSE is more or less a total classic that was more inspired by the symphonic movement of the 70’s UK scene. Haunting guitars from Jean Pierre Alarcen is beautifully combined with the lovely voice of Rose Podwojny, with added swirling hammonds. Unfortunately, the band did not do much more. The band had it’s roots in EDEN ROSE, which also is a really nice album, although, not a classic as this one is.

Salma Gandhi is a swedish instrumental band formed 2005 in Malmö.
The members had been active at the stoner/metal/punkscene in Malmö for years
and was hungry to create something totally different. After hours of jam sessions
and a lot of fun they started to find some kind of a sound and concept and started making compositions.
The musical genre is sometimes described as 70´s filmmusic or stonerjazz and the goal of the band
is to give the recipient a somewhat narrative musical trip with a gallery of strange characters
and different murky landscapes popping up along the way. 2012 they will release their debut album
”The Quest For Nonsense Never Ends” at Transubstans records. Some of the main influenses are
Pink Floyd, Oddjob, The Ethiopiques, Boris Vian and Alfred Jarry.
