Fuzzy Cracklins I'm late to the party but hey! at least I brought some fresh cracklins and beer. My friends in the swamp know I prefer instrumentals but the vocals on these tracks are simply amazing. And what stoner song doesn't sound better in Swedish? Favorite track: Mantra.

FDJ Superb psych'n'roll from Finland.
Lysergic Floydian grooves of molten lava spewing forth beneath hazy shoegaze vocals.
Full review here..... Favorite track: Mantra.
Jonathan thumbnail
Jonathan I, Captain, a hard hitting, stoner rock group out of Finland plays kickass cosmic sounds. The musicianship and vocals are both spectacular with fascinating arrangements. Mantra, my favorite, must be heard to be believed. The song is a f-ing masterpiece. I cannot wait for the full album's release. These guys are the real deal. Favorite track: Mantra.

Track Name: Mantra
Mål it opp nan bild tär to ska lådas va na
fö he to gör kan nan ader jöra betär
Slut ti tal om de sjölv fö itt nan bryr se
va to säger ha vari sagt så mang gang förr

Livi e oundvikligt, precis som dödin
så slut tala om båda me he samma
va do än säger så blir e itt betär
så kom me oss å glöm bort allting

He e no bara sålejs he e.
He sålejs väädin funkar.
Track Name: Stugon pt. II
And he enters
Mind first and feet last
Gazing as he walks
Listening as they talk

Kom ti stugon
Kom som du e

As he ascends
waves of light
monoliths of life
ride it outwards

Kom ti stugon
Kom som du e
Track Name: Care
Well you see
talking crap is one way to take
in this cold and twisted world
and if you don’t care if it’ll make or break
well i won’t either if that’s the way you swing
just tell me one more thing honey-bunny
just fucking say goodbye already

see me care - so fucking much
how i dare? - you tell me
see me shed these big ass tears

I’m not pissed, and far from angry
it’s just when things kinda get awry
and the judgment has sobered up
and when the things are said
and all the other things are done
when it all comes crashing down
words won’t mean jack shit to me

see me care - so fucking much
how i dare? - you tell me
see me shed these big ass tears
