Beardfish - Sleeping in Traffic Part Two (2008)

The fourth album from this Swedish band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, accordion, piano, organ, keyboard, synths, harp and vocals.

The band is back again from the good 2007 part one of Sleeping In Traffic. An album that surprised me as I am new to this Swedish band.

I was a bit better prepared this time after part one and knew what to expect.... more or less.

We get again seventy minutes with a mix of Gentle Giant, Kaipa, Frank Zappa and The Flower Kings. That is the inspirations you can hear in their music and a mix of these bands is what we get.

The music is both eclectic and symphonic at the same time.

The music is really quirky and all over the place. It is also pretty funky with elements of 1970s funk. 

The music is also very good. It is engaging and makes the listener really guess where the songs is of to in the next minutes. The quality is also very good.

This album is well worth checking out as it is one of the better albums from Sweden.

3.5 points
