Max Von Sydow, AKA Jocke Åhlund (Teddybears STHLM, Les Big Byrd). Under the pseudonym, Max Von Sydow, his creativity shines brightly on long-awaited new material. His music is unruly and still thoughtful in its approach to incorporate a wide range of musical traditions: psychedelic music from seven continents shares sound and arrangement in the two tracks "Cardboard Pope" and "Insecto". The instrumentation on the A side is unclear in the most positive sense. The melodies soar higher and higher over acid-drenched guitars and drums. The thin and aggressive "Insecto" sounds as jerky and unpredictable as the title implies.
