LP version. "I have always been fascinated by what happens the first time a group of musicians take on a piece of music. I wanted to explore this and found some dear friends who felt the same and whose musicianship I admire. The concept on this album is quite simple. I spent two days, the 13th and 14th of August 2019, writing; short stories, some chord progressions, some lyrics, some songs. A week later I invited Tonbruket to my house and we spent 24 hours -- the 21st and 22nd of August 2019 -- recording approximately two hours of music -- everything is live and first takes except for the backing vocals. When we mixed it, we chose the stuff that fit on a 40-minute LP." --Christian Kjellvander

Sustaining a long and successful career, Christian Kjellvander is among Sweden's finest singer/songwriters and performers since his early days in acts like Loosegoats and Songs of Soil. His latest album Wild Hxmans (TR 419CD/LP, 2019), was hailed as one of his finest outlets so far and got nominated at the Swedish Grammys. A true story teller with a strong sense of melody who's frequently touring internationally. Tonbruket has had an unprecedented run of Swedish Grammy-winning albums, four in a row, since forming in 2010. The band's intriguing fusion of psychedelic free form, progressive rock, American roots music, and jazz has attracted audiences all over Europe. Led by former EST member Dan Berglund, the four-piece also includes members of The Soundtrack of Our Lives and Wildbirds & Peacedrums. All About Jazz nailed the concept in their review of the band's Abbey Road recorded album, Nubium Swimtrip: "it transcends the genres it is inspired by to create new, original, and unique music that is worth listening to by fans of any genre." Tonbruket's latest studio album Masters of Fog was released in 2019. Doom Country is the first album by Kjellvandertonbruket.
