Dark Strands
Unknown Truths

This is the debut album from Dark Strands AKA Tony Beardsley (no relation as far as we can tell to impudent geordie footballing genius Peter). Tony has been inspired by warehouse parties of the late 80s where no particular style or genre dominated. A free for all musical journey where anything goes, varying between rhythmic styl...view item »


Osynlige Mann
Airports / Exodus

Gothernburg bass player Osynlige Mann of URAN GBG and The Exorcist returns with two new tracks on Höga Nord. The a-side, 'Airports' reimagines Kraftwerk as slightly sexier, and more brood. The b-side meanwhile, 'Exodus', has Ma...view item »


Andrew Weatherall
Qualia

Andrew Weatherall is back already for another album, which means the less danceable Andy is out to play. Well, that's how the press release made it sound anyway; the previews tell a different story. Hoga Nord provide hosting duties this time, bringing his latest soothing, major-key opus to wax, complete with its references to such opposing poles...view item »


Autarkic
Treble Rebel

Rich, zany club tunes from Tel Aviv’s Autarkic, which looks like what a parrot might say if it heard the word ‘Autechre’ once. It does not, however, sound like anything of the sort. The...view item »


Golden Bug
Viaje A Tenderlion / Hitodoma

Golden Bug, texture like sun. The latest 7” to emerge on Höga Nord Rekords (Andrew Weatherall, Flowers Must Die) is a trippy two-track from the one born Antoine Harispurus. On ‘Viaje A Tenderlion’ and ‘Hitodoma’ he aims for a sound that is at o...view item »


Mythologen
Church Music

Swedish producer Mythologen aka Alexander Palmestål is back with second twelve Church Music - probably short for Church-converted-into-a-nightclub Music. We have one of those here in Leeds! Bursting with rather euphoric electro-dance, big smiles all-round, the EP shows Palmestål’s great fondness for Lo...view item »


Various
Convenanza 2018

Are you ready to get really, really psyche-d? In various ways? Well, the artists on the latest compilation from Swedish label Höga Nord hope so.

Ved
Omikron

Ultra Satan
Freedom Rock / Anti-Clock

Vox Low
Loving Hell EP

Vox Low are a versatile sounding band that fuse together so many different styles of music. At first these sounds may seem daunting, hostile almost, but what makes Loving Hell so dynamic is the way it gives you the opportunity to restart your thoughts and open your mind. A charismatic mix of psychedelic ...view item »


Rickard Jäverling
Album 3

Rickard Jäverling is a Swedish musician working in and around psych, prog, and Swedish folk. Album 3 is... wait for it.. his third solo album and released on Höga Nord.

The Overview Effect

The Exorcist GBG
The Exorcist GBG

Not, in actual fact, the soundtrack to the classic horror, but a Swedish trio. Exorcist GBG play a giallo-tinged kind of techno. And they are a real band too, using bass guitar, drums and synths to make floor-fillers, though they are floor-fillers with a bit of a psych-rock flair. Self-titled debut LP on Hoga Nord....view item »


Västlänken
Moebel / Autobaba

By day, he’s just an ordinary Swede like anyone else named Jerker Jarold. By night, he’s Västlänken, the underground psychedelicist Gothenburg deserves. Associated with Uran GBG and Lava among others, this moniker is Jarold’s first foray into ambient/minimal techno. H...view item »


Bird Of Paradise
Smoking Holiday EP

UK producer Jo Howard's latest EP contains for varied tracks from the retro-tech diaspora. Opening with a paranoid, down tempo number before moving onto the 80s futura of 'Joy-Rides', side A is all atmosphere. Side B brings in a steady hypnosis on the title track, before the pummelling 'Breather Resist' closes things on a faster...view item »


Jesse
Fluids

This lovely disc of sketchy paints comes from Finnish band Jesse, whose recent collaboration with DJ Sotofett came right out of nowhere. The cosmic crew continue to play with disco and psychedelia by laying down simple ideas and then positing a more developed galaxy they could live in. Pretty enou...view item »


The Exorcist GBG
II

Mythologen
Mythologen

Continuing a creative channel forged by the band Pistol Disco, Alexander Palmestål’s solo moniker is a lesson in solid groove, lush swirling atmospheres and plenty of momentary chaos and magic to lift the whole thing above our heads. This vinyl LP contains tracks that would be at home at the Haçienda in the late 80s, p...view item »


Dungeon Acid
Dog Acid / Sex Beat

Dungeon Acid is Jean-Louis Huhta, who has been at the core of some of the most interesting music made in the Swedish scene over the years, from Cortex to The Skull Defekts. This 7” is titled Dog Acid b/w Sex Beat, and it delivers on its dirty dancefloor p...view item »


Minami Deutsch
Tunnel / New Pastoral Life

Two different and distinct takes on the Krautrock formula from Japanese Psych-ists Minami Deutsch. New Pastoral Life slowly shimmers into life with mantra like charm and delicate repetitiveness and on the flipside a more straight up kraut rock affair with pulsing drums locked with bass as whirls of guitar and electronic...view item »

Max Von Sydow
Insecto / Cardboard Pope

Max Von Sydow is of course the pseudonym of Jocke Åhlund (Les Big Byrd, Caesars). Here’s a rare treat: a single from him featuring his own particularly wild take on the far-reaching psych sound.

Ultra Satan
USA/USB

A two-track maximalist blast from Ultra Satan, who seem to tapping into the same sort of epic ecstatic tropical psychedelic groove world that Zun Zun Egui used to inhabit. USA / USB seems to have condensed a huge quantity of sound into this little two-track 7” single, making this a quick but poten...view item »

Timothy J. Fairplay
Mindfighter EP

Sounds to match a dystopian Europe or a European Dystopia: it's Timothy J Fairplay. His latest four-tracker, the Mindfighter EP, as ever picks up on many contrasts and colours.

Flowers Must Die
Montana / Nusrat

Flowers Must Die turn out fetching space rock super-jams, inspired by the classics but with the drive that youth can bring. Two tracks, Montana and Nusrat here, that are at once tight and loose, in the way that only this kind of psych stuff can truly be. Pressed to a beautiful picture disc no less, by Höga...view item »

High Boys
World Numbination EP

You might know Joachim Nordwall and Jean-Louis Huhta from their work in the intense experimental group Skull Defekts, but their first project as a duo, High Boys, moves in very different territory. World Numbination is a four track power-pack of acidic electro-acoustic ...view item »


Jamie Paton
Telefuture / Blind Summit

Jamie Paton (of Cage and Aviary) presents two tracks of what he likes to call ‘slouchy techno’, a style that speaks for itself. True to the term, this music takes it slow and easy, laying down a pleasing groove with none of the strut and posture of more ‘serious’  techno. Telefut...view item »

Tentakel
Impulse / Inversion

Fatma
The Dirty Beat / Cirklar

If a heady mix of funk, electro and dub is your thing then Dirty Beat by F.A.T.M.A. may just be the thing you’ve been looking for all year. Whilst the Swedish band are an enigmatic bunch, we have gleaned enough to say that this could well be worth investing in. 7” backed with Cirklar. On Hoga Nord.&...view item »

Dark Strands
The Last Ride EP

Fontän
Polar Star EP

Fontan are a neo-psych band from Sweden.

SPR!
Mental Health

Albert Sjöstam and Christoffer Fransson are a duo based in Gothenburg who call themselves SPR, which is an abbreviation of Skills for Psychological Recovery, which is sort of a type of therapy or something. So it would make sense that this record is called Mental Health then. Psychotic episode inducing limited white vinyl. ...view item »


The Brian Jonestown Massacre
La Façon Dont La Machine Vers l'Arrière

Anton Newcombe’s boys are back. On this vinyl 7”, titled La Façon Dont La Machine Vers l'Arrière, The Brian Jonestown Massacre make an overdriven stomp with distorted breakbeats and melodica riffing. As always they are predictably unpredictable. The A1 Lover remix on th...view item »

Fontän
Babylon EP

On the Babylon EP Fontan create a jazzy, balearic kosmische that has the lushest synth arpeggios you’ve ever heard. The guitar playing clearly worships at the altar of Manuel Göttsching, but this Gothenburg duo experiment with the form, adding Animal Collective-inspired vocals and ele...view item »

Higamos Hogamos
Spacerocks

Unashamedly synth-tastic instrumentals from Higamos Hogamos’ Steve Webster. What is interesting though is that there is unclear how much synth is actually present on Spacerocks… Apparently an improvised talk box is playing a major role? Either way, good and spacey. Four track picture disc on Hoga Nord....view item »

Zodiak Versions

Paper
Come On / We Hold You Responsible

Nondescriptly named trio Paper are a furious proposition, thrashing their way through two quick sides of hardcore-inflected kraut-pop with Come On / We Hold You Responsible. Lots of melody in play as well though, and a few dashes of synth have been spotted around the edges. 7” single on the Hoga Nord label....view item »

Nine tracks spanning multiple electronic genres, and the l...view item »


Les Big Byrd
Liquid Sky

Hoga Nord are a nice little Swedish label releasing things mainly of a psychy persuasion, and Les Big Byrd is no exception. Liquid Sky has four tracks, all imbued with a winter melancholy whilst still being flamingly psychedelic.
