MM Shorts 613: The Hanged Man

Stockholm’s Rebecka Rolfart’s solo project The Hanged Man promises some aural gems with her creepy, Sonic Youth inflected track First Time Dreaming, which provides a head-trip through space, down a careening oceanic trench and into the dark woods, illuminated only by the stars.

It’s haunting, tribal arena-rock played on a basement floor.

Their latest full-length offering is titled Surfing The Lexicon and can…

So What If Im Standing In Apricot Jam (the lack of apostrophe is deliberate) is a bizarre and wonderful acid folk treasure in the vein of wild-eyed geniuses such as Syd Barret, Kevin Ayers, Neil Innes or Nick Drake, although perhaps even more…
