HHH Tack För Kaf­fet SUBLIMINAL SOUNDS. CD/LP Last tes­ta­ment to the ar­che­typal con­fig­u­ra­tion of the Swedish prog gi­ants. The ti­tle trans­lates from the Swedish as “thanks for the cof­fee”, a col­lo­qui­al­ism for “so long”. It’s a re­mem­brance of founder mem­bers Tor­b­jörn Abelli and Thomas Mera Gartz who died in 2010 and 2012. The ven­er­a­ble folk-drone-psych out­fit’s first al­bum since 2009’s Hem­lösa Kat­ter is sourced from im­pro­vi­sa­tions recorded in 2009 and features Abelli and Gartz, founder mem­ber Bo An­ders Pers­son, new-and-old­boys Sigge Krantz, Jakob Sjöholm and, from TGS’s spir­i­tual heirs Dun­gen, Reine Fiske. Opener, E Moll Slow is 20 min­utes of char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally plan­gent, un­du­lat­ing in­stru­men­tal in­ter­play which sets the al­bum up as no en­try point for neophtyes. Con­trast­ingly, the blud­geon­ing Pen­gar (trans: Money) beats Sis­ter Ray at its own game. De­spite be­ing for the com­mit­ted, Tack För Kaf­fet stresses that the still-ex­tant Träd, Gräs Och Ste­nar were and al­ways will be ir­re­place­able. Kieron Tyler
