Makajodama (CD)
MAKAJODAMA is the unusual name for this young instrumental quartet from Sweden. The band was formed by MATHIAS DANIELSSON, guitarist for the progressive rock band GÖSTA BERLINGS SAGA. In the course of searching for another avenue to express his own musical ideas he met MATTIAS ANKARBRANDT, the former drummer of THE CARPET KNIGHTS. Their goal was to blend both written and improvised music. Through the walls of the cellar of Mathias' rehearsal studio, he could hear someone practice violin everyday, and since some of his new ideas included strings he decided to find out who the player was. After a month searching, they located their man, JOHAN KLINT, who immediately joined Mattias and Mathias. As luck would have it Johan knew a cellist, KARIN LARSDOTTER, who was also interested in improvisation as well and she came onboard, rounding out the quartet. The band invited ANEKDOTEN's guitarist, NICKLAS BARKER, to mix the album. MAKAJODAMA's debut is a direct reflection of the quartet's influences: THIRD EAR BAND, UNIVERS ZERO, Swedish psych pioneers ÄLGARNAS TRÄDGÅRD, the kraut rock spirit of CAN and FAUST, and Swedish contemporary composers KARL-BIRGER BLOMDAHL and ALLAN PETTERSSON. The result is a unique collision of progressive and post rock that sounds like the musical offspring of early KING CRIMSON and GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR.
