Träd, Gräs och Stenar (Träden)
Curated by Moon Duo
For a band whose name translates to “Trees, Grass and Stone”, obviously, these lionized Swedish innovators have upheld their utopian ideals both in ethos and sound since the early 70’s. Träd, Gräs och Stenar straddle the extremes of prog rock bluster and DIY-radicalism like few bands have done: creating their own instruments, promoting active crowd participation in live shows and even cooking macrobiotic meals for their audience. Though founder Thomas Mera Gartz passed away in 2012, the group marched on with a revolving cast of established and new players under the name Träden.
