        9.      Baroque (reprise/bonus)                         (3:15)

Amazing and colourful rock'n'sutra from Turkey! SIDDHARTA swings you mood from serene
and tranquil to wild'n'heavy, and throws in some acid balladry for good measure. The
result is a progressive/psychedelic space cocktail, with at times jammy elements,
suitable for fans of Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, a.s.o. This is an intelligent and
well crafted masterpiece that sounds relevant even a decade after it was recorded.

TR      11      IN THE LABYRINTH        ONE TRAIL TO HEAVEN             CD      12.2011

We were lucky to meet one of the brightest representatives of the Swedish progressive
psychedelic music scene, the artist and musician Peter Lindahl and his psychedelic
folk band "In The Labyrinth". He founded the band In the Labyrinth and in the mid to
late 1990s recorded a number of engaging albums in which Northern psychedelic folk
blends harmoniously with Middle Eastern music. The band's new compilation album "One
Trail to Heaven" includes their most fascinating compositions as well as some
previously unreleased material and alternate versions of songs from Peter's exclusive
personal archive. Produced and engineered by Peter Lindahl in his studio in Stockholm,
Sweden. Compilated and released with an improved sound quality on Trail Records in
2011. Limited collector edition.

TR      12      BARRETT ELMORE          WOODLANDS                       CD      05.2012

Barrett Elmore was founded in 2008 in Sweden. The band started out as a trio that
played raw instrumental blues. Soon they moved on to psychedelic and progressive
inspired music. When singer Mikaela Eriksson joined the band, they finally found the
sound and style reflected in their music today. This has resulted in their debut
album 'Woodlands'. Pink Floyd is obviously one of the main influences, together with
the atmospheres of the Nordic woods (the album's main theme) and melancholic Swedish
folk music.
