Kungens Män from Stockholm, Sweden has been around as a musical unit since 2012. The roots as friends go way back though. Noises, impulses, fuck-ups, and improvised jams have been recorded since day one and some of them have been put out on record. This is the first one on Riot Season. While the previous album Fuzz På Svenska (2018) on the German label Adansonia Records was somewhat jazzy and pretty introverted, this new one Chef is more rock and to the point, but still in the exploring, heady way typical of Kungens Män. Oh, Chef doesn't have anything to do with cooking -- it means "boss" or "chief" in Swedish. The inspiration comes from the drone, the rattle of the loose screw, the circuit failure of the effects, the phat-ness of the Moog and from the very diverse wiring of a bunch of middle-aged Swedish freaks. Kungens Män never plan the next musical move -- it presents itself. Sometimes the costume sewn is really ugly, but somehow there's always room for the sublime as you turn it inside out. Chef is the most effective Kungens Män album yet. Four pieces, one LP. Four different moods, the Kungens Män sound distilled. Dive in, walk around, start over again. It never stops. Blue vinyl; housed in a 350gsm printed outer sleeve; Includes double-sided insert and download code; Edition of 400.
