ARBETE OCH FRITID picture
Arbete & Fritid was formed in 1969 and continued groping for directionality of various music for ten years while being based on pure folk song music. The band members are changed in cello players frequently except Ove Karlsson of the composer. Members were connected through the experiment jazz which was an underground performance, but were detonated by contact to vanguard minimalists like John Cage and Terry Riley.

 Their activity was novel in traditional North Europe folk song music of 1969 when a band moved into action and started. As for the performance that fused in folk music, jazz, a lock, vanguard experiment music, the unique band was able to make them truly in the early 1970s. It is very the front than anyone can hear world music willingly.

 Arbete & Fritid is one of the live bands evaluated most in the 70s and possibly, as for the live broadcasting like them, may

An incredible prototype of Swedish progressive / avantgarde / jazz / folk rock.

The first "Damen I Svart" has struck our fancy definitely, with a bit whacked-out but splendid / gracious ritualism deeply into the song. Ove's cello solo is quite impressive, especially with the smoothness like a cool clean brook, and well-harmonized saxophone concerto can make us comfortable into dream. "Garbergsbrudens Dödsmarsch" following with the same melodies sounds more massively folksy with full of violin passion.

The most suitable song for calling avantgarde folk mixed with strong jazz is their self-titled one. Sounds like they would play improvisationally, aggressively, and pleasantly ... actually, smooth but powerful drums / percussion sounds launched by Bengt must take the lead in this stuff I'm sure. His steady and organic play should accelerate their progressiveness / experimentalism. On the other hand, the first shot of Side B "Mora-Nisses Vallåt" or the next one "Esso Motor Hotel" is slightly pop / catchy jazz related rock, that can encourage us freshly. They would emphasize people need good humour and good music.

"Engelska Kanalen" tosses another panoramic sound onto us, filled with insistently meditative psychedelia, that reminds me a clear landscape of tribal dance ... quiet, solemn but sincere, enthusiastic. Not seen yet but guess their enthusiasm be leaning toward Sancta Lucia or something). Just like a soft breeze, their sounds can come into our mind really. The last "Vind", created only with dim piano / glockenspiel riffs, sounds not only tragic but expectative. Suggest lots of Swedish reviewers and fans listening to this simple stuff might feel something magnificent, something cool, and something fascinating.

Sometimes desert, sometimes old-flavoured, and sometimes lyrical texture can be heard all through the album. Recommended.
