FOLK ROCK OF THE YEAR
Björn Gardner: Tre sultna mågar
The difference between folk pop and folk rock may seem microscopic, but is in the attitude and the accentuations of phrasing. Examples to clarify the difference span from the light acoustic Kolonien to the heavy electric – like Björn Gardner. His second album is a passionate, ambitious journey leaving visible trails to 70´s Swedish prog band Träd gräs och stenar, but also to British Folk Rock and Swedish medieval ballads. Encompassing both the heavy psychedelic – and the intimately frail.
