Out of stock

2016 repress. Subliminal Sounds presents a vinyl reissue of Agarnas Tradgard's 1972 debut album Framtiden ar ett Svavande Skepp, Forankrat I Forntiden, a rare and totally flipped-out psychedelic underground space rock masterpiece from Sweden. This incredible album was a radical exploration of the new possibilities opened up by creative use of the recording studio as an instrument, in a similar vein to Faust and other German experimenters, while also pulling in folk and medieval influences.

The band name translates to "The Garden of the Elks" and the album title to "The Future Is a Hovering Ship, Anchored in the Past." A long, long time ago, long before our time, there was high-standing civilization on earth. It was then that the elks lived. In their garden was a huge generator of pink glass that radiated the four elements. It was a sort of primal force for everything that one might call God. These elks eventually learned to master the matter and then went into the astral transcendental plane. Since then nobody has seen them... This reissue is a facsimile deluxe re-release from the master tapes. Includes additional LP with previously unreleased recordings from the same time period. Features never before seen photos and liner notes by the band.

"...the first and better of storied Swedish space rock band ... stands in stark contrast to the seductive, hyper-modern otherworlds that Can and Eno were fabricating during the same period, and with social scientists telling us that we're no happier now than we were a half-century ago, Framtiden's grim forecasts now appear alarmingly accurate." --Stylus
